So iv owned this laptop a while now. I got it when I was 18, it originally broke through my own fault (an accident) however once it was repaired and sorted, due to such high graphics the graphics card broke down.
It worked a treat fast running, excellent, did everything it said on the box. However like I said the graphics are so amazingly high that the laptop itself cannot handle it. Battery life like most laptops lasted a while to start with but towards the end broke down a bit. However good general life. I loved the game centre that was built into it. The camera was fantastic quality too, and as I remember the sound was very good quality too. Both microphone and speakers were great. The you cam built into this particular laptop was a fantastic feature feature which with the repair I unfortunately lost. But it was great for recording videos and taking picture. Would have been cooler to have a camera the other side too so you can take pictures or webcam and show people the other side.
The only other real issue I found was it got very hot very quickly it didn't seem to have powerful enough fans for what it does.
All in all though a great little laptop for watching movies, making movies and just general use! A definite must buy, I will be getting it repaired and using it again for a long time to come!
i have just brought this laptop, and not only is it stylist and beautful looking but light and moden as well. it is called the artist edition as the design from the laptop was created by an independent artist who had won a competition and may i say it very talented work. Their is a build in web cam which is great to use for programmes such as msn messagner and yahoo. it also lets u edit home movies as well with the quickplay feature, where u can also view picture and slideshows from the harddrive and watch digital TV and even record TV with the use of a tuner. The battery life on the laptop is far better the previous laptop i have had. It come with vista which works great with the features on this laptop. the graphics cards is great as well for all you gamers with a medium budget. All in all i say buy it now.
