I have bought this laptop a while ago, I didn't had a laptop but I needed one for school, I was surprised what the performance were , I ordered it the next day, it has the latest ATI graphic card, so you can play the latest games, in high details. Well most of the new games, it has 6gb ddr3 sdram, which is good enough for a basic laptop, I use it every day for school, it has a powerful processor, you can choose between different ones, but mine is a i5, quite enough, the difference between a i5 and a i7 are quite minimum, keep in mind that this laptop is kinda heavy, so you need to have a special bag for it, one good advice is if your like me, when you order one you get a cloth use it every time, than you will get more pleasure out of your laptop, and another good thing is it has a 8 cell lion battery, and a power save option in the laptop, so you can save your battery, but also keep in mind, how more things your doing thus the quicker the battery will suffer. clean your vents once a week if you use it allot, because if you don't your laptop can suffocate and become very hot!
