I've had this machine for a while, or at least enough time to give a solid review, and I must say it is fantastic value for money!
Normally I'd be put off buying a fairly commercial brand - weird I know - but I must say that this isn't a laptop that has been thrown together purely for another machine to profit from without much care or attention paid.
It's of a solid build and the specifications, whilst not being completely top of the line, are undoubtedly well worth the outlay meaning that you get fantastic value for money when purchasing this machine! I upgraded because I needed a little more grunt in my machine and it has handled everything I've thrown at it, and I've been running photoshop, illustrator and numerous other memory intensive applications alongside eachother.
The screen is vibrant, and is one of the best screens I've seen in ages, and makes my designing work look all that more beautiful! Whilst the graphics isn't dedicated it still pulls its weight and I find playing my Steam backlog highly enjoyable.
I don't really think I can completely express my love for this machine, so I'd suggest you buy your own so you can understand ;)
EasyNote TS series is stylish and reliable; it keeps you in touch and entertained. Simple to operate, thanks to one-click function keys and one-touch access to social networks. To top it off, the EasyNote TS features a fast, energy-saving processor, and high-end graphics.
Subtle designThe 15.6" EasyNote TS has ample screen space and a slender profile, along with an assortment of cool design innovations to keep you comfortably entertained on the go. Daisy-chain patterning on the cover and palm rest draws attention to the chassis as well as to what's under the hood. A chiclet keyboard adds nice style; while the multi-gesture touchpad lets you navigate with just two fingers.
