Very nice laptop.


A10 processor, plays D3 EQ2 Landmark at medium or higher settings. 8 gigs of ram is sufficient for today's needs

Ram can not be upgraded further, keyboard and touchpad feel weak

Great Price and Great Value


I bought this about a month ago, I got it on sale for $379. You can't beat this price for what you are getting and even at full retail of $399, it is still worth it. I love the larger screen 17.3" and the fast processor AMD 8 at 2.1ghz to 3.1 ghz.....
