Anti-aliasing affects how smooth graphics appear. Even though the game supports DirectX 11 and modern effects like tessellation and parallax mapping, the Yeti engine fails to impress. Independent of the vertical sync speed, the developers decided to...

Excellent replacement for my old XP machine.


Very nice machine for the money. Has all the whistles and bells I need and probably many more that I will never use. The so called Dolby surround sound is laughable.This product is... Big screen size, poor sound quality, lightning fastAbout me......

Does not have Win 8

The new operators ability to eliminate all the goofy pop ups apparently originating at Yahoo

Good price, nice keyboard, nice display

Battery life inconsistant, screen hard to keep clean, already having problems

Great laptop


I got this laptop so I could work in another room of the house. My main desktop is in the coldest room where the heat doesn't reach. I was able to very easily set up the laptop into my wireless network and make the two computers "speak" to each other...

Easy to you, networked it wirelessly with my desktop

I use a mouse, I wish I could disable the touchpad
