If you're in the market for a laptop that looks great and packs and punch for both your work and for fun, then this may prove to be an affordable and good looking choice.
A word on the specs first and foremost. It comes with a commendable Core i5 450, which is not the fastest processor which you're going to find in the market. But neither is it at all a bad choice. For office work and basic gaming, it is more than sufficient.
Its screen is what I liked best as it is so wide. This makes watching movies on your laptop an enjoyable experience with the ability to view them in HD. You'll also be happily surprised that you will not only be confined to DVD movies with the ability to play blu-rays.
On the other technical specs, the machine is acceptable by todays standards boasting 4GB ram and a hard disk capacity of 500 GB. The package includes a Windows 7 Operating System, as with many other laptops in its range today.
The thing I liked the most about this laptop was its powerful Geforce graphics card. I tried it with some of the latest games in the market today such as World of Warcraft and encountered very little glitches and disturbances. Movies and game play ran smoothly and coupled that with a speedy processor and acceptable RAM, you are bound to have an enjoyable gaming experience.
Battery life was fair but I don't really want to comment on this area until I have used the laptop for a longer duration.
Finally, a word on the outlook of the laptop. Its glossy finish and professional looking silver interior make it one of the better looking laptops in the market today. MacBook's aside, if you are looking for a sexy laptop, this is one of the better ones available.
