Worth every penny!!!

 

My graphics card is running at 512mb ram. its advertised as 256. So im a little confused. But of course that only makes me happy. the web cam works great. Runs Nwn2 on high with no slow down as of yet. pretty screen easy to use

I think i have forgotten the meaning of this word sense my purchase. But in reality it could use a larger Hard drive

Nice mobile bot

 

Nice rig, very surprised at the performance of this system. Dedicated video is a must with 64 bit apps and OS. looking to purchase another for a client

New Egg is out of these at the moment. need to get one before the holiday rush

Great Laptop

 

If your looking for a cheap priced gaming notebook, look no further.

I bought this laptop for a photo/gaming computer for on the go and it delivers the goods ; Comes with windows professional installed,Has 1GB of DDR 2 ram, Radeon 256MB X1600 runs cool even under high end games, wifi is fast, cheap price ; Plays WOW...

Speakers are really quiet, even when the volume is maxed out

WARNING TO GAMERS

 

Like i said, this is a great little machine, asuming your not a gamer as I am. For gamers go look at ABSs single AMD64 core with the 9700 radeon, it was my first one (was stolen) and is deffinatly better then this one, just heavier.

No, I didn't mark this wrong, this laptop is worth a 5 rating, it is a good laptop. It's lite, large hard drive, good processing power, sleek, has all you'll ever need

The Centrino Duo Core is not a gaming core. I bought this after reading reviews saying its compariable to the AMD X2 core, It is not. the X1600 isn't very powerful as well, in 3dmark 03 it only got a 5500, with updated drivers was only a 6600

Great Buy!

 

Windows activation does not work with the preloaded product key. You must enter the number off of the bottom when you activate. I think this is more of a Microsoft issue, as their activation process is junk. Microsoft only manages to make things more...

Great price. Dedicated 256MB video memory. only 5.5lbs and still full featured. The built-in camera is nice, and the unit feels solid. Plus it works well

The screen could use a higher resolution. Battery life is not 4 hours, as stated in the specs. You get closer to 2 hours. The little emblem on the top of the laptop is lifting up

Excellent Notebook

 

For a notebook of this power and size, it is exceptionally light. It does run a little hot, but not very hot considering how powerful it is. Out of the box, there's very little bloatware. The included camera is well placed and the touch pad is very...

I've had only one issue. The description page lists this notebook as having Bluetooth. There are, however, two models of this particular computer, one with and one without Bluetooth. I received the one without and was fairly dissapointed after I...

One of the best laptops I've seen

A great buy. This thing handles graphics and games really well. over heating is not an issue. Fairly small yet really powerful. it has a dvd burner, built in webcam, wireless, bluetooth. Good overall consturction

Consumer review by:
