Consumer review by: Malcom Reynolds (newegg.com)

Bad LCD quality

 

This laptop screen is very fragile. My son set his booksack on the top of the laptop while the screen was closed, and the LCD literally shattered. Luckily, a replacement screen is only about $80

HD3000 is fast enough to play games, even if only on low settings. The temps stay very low. The smooth diamond texture on the exterior is very nice

Don't let the LED backlight fool you. The LCD is of very poor quality. You'll notice this immediately when you start the laptop and see the black screen. The top of the screen is black, but it fades into white at the bottom. This is literally the worst...
