Best Bang for the Buck


This laptop is one of the best deal on newegg right now, I went to best buy and felt bit sorry for the poor folks that were shelling out money for overpriced laptops for 700-800 that had intergrated graphics and i3s or low end i5s lol.

i5 480m is a great fast little processor ; HD 6470m - is a decent gpu for gaming at medium settings in most games such as crysis, high on older games such as half life 2 ep 1+2, ccs, cod4 etc ; 7200 rpm hdd - it is rare to find a 7200rpm hdd in this...

The usual bloatware ; What I found highly unusual was the complete lack of dedicated hotkeys you usually find on laptops, the most annoying being the lack of a volume button but im just being picky at this point, its nothing big
