~ Overview ~
This game is truly amazing, because it's basically a big expansion pack from the first game. You fight against the same species, and another good thing is, if you played the first mass effect, you can continue it further in this game, so at the end where you ended the game, when you start this game you can expand it further, you need to fight against the people who have tried to kill you, and continue the storyline.
~ Game options ~
~Motion blur~ if you change your view rapidly, the resulting slight blur in the image may improve visual quality and realism for some people, while others may find it distracting. A comparison is provided above however this is a difficult effect to capture in screenshots.
Note that enabling Motion Blur does reduce FPS slightly, but ultimately you should decide whether to use it or not based more on how you feel about its visual impact, and bear in mind that it can also help cover up the shimmering from jagged edges in the game.
Sound: the game will automatic set your performance to you hardware compatible, however if you installed the correct drivers for your sound card, you can enable it yourself as well, but be aware choose the correct format otherwise you will end up with no sound!
you can set the mouse sensitivity as you wish, but keep in mind that you need to kill your opponent easy and quickly so set it to a average speed, you can also disable VSync because the it is known to be a issue and known to cause lag, it also reduces the performance which can make a mouse lag more.
~ Controls ~
You can adjust the controls how you like, in each game the standard movement and control keys are, w,s,a,d you can change them how you like, for e.g with the up-down-left-right buttons on the keyboard, or you can let it stay as it is your choice.
~ Gameplay ~
Basically the same as in the first game, you can choose Casual (easy) Normal, Veteran (hard), choose the one that fits with you, the opponent has the same level as you, so don't be mistaken if you choose the hardest one you will get killed, quicker than the other game types but that speaks for it, you can power up your skills and upgrade it further the higher the more change the upgraded attacker will be successful.
~ Automatic save ~
I suggest enable the automatic settings to save at each important location, if you don't enable it keep in mind to save your games yourself by pressing the f6 button, Nothing is more annoying than losing the save file, also if you managed to have allot of save files, delete allot of them and make each time let's say 2 save points in order to have a backup.
~ Single Player ~
Commander Shepard was killed, but she came back, in another form you need to re-make a new team, you can choose from different Races, allot more races than in the first game, so they thought about a good thing, also the gorgeous Yvonne Strahovski is playing in this game, I would choose her on my team for sure, see for yourself what I mean.
You need to locate and destroy and remaining geth, you will get a new starship because the one you had was lost in the battle, you will meet old friends who were your best mates, you will work for a boss called the Illusive Man, but if you had a renegade reputation he will still force you to do other things.
But you can build your renegade further so people will be afraid of you once again, isn't that nice in order to complete each task quickly people need to be afraid of you, so the task is watch your codex for the important details and basically, exclude them in the task.
If you bought the game, there are also expansive packs called (dlc) download able content. It is useful when you played this game out, well it might take you a while, but if you do you can continue it because you get a DLC, and you can continue a couple of missions each dlc package has a couple of tasks that need to be completed, build your relationships wisely but be sure to know what you're doing, don't skip the storyline because you are bored, play it with common sense and a soul, because this game rocks!

~ Overview ~
I have bought this game a couple years ago, it was a promising game, heard allot about it and most of my friends recommend this game. So I tried it was in the weekend so I had allot of time, this game takes place in space, the game is professional it was a money-consuming project, but they made it a big success so, allot of players bought this game, and the developers keep on developing and they will create more successful games.
In the game you will start in the year 2148 the "mankind" discovers a big secret on Mars, that will change the World dramatic, because of this big discovery mankind can make solar systems and travel to mars in a flash, but the downside was they were not alone on the planet, they were shocked that the race that they discovered, were evil people that kill nations for the fun.
~ Game Settings ~
With a high tech pc you can set each setting on the maximum but also with a average it is possible to play at high settings, you can play in Windowed Mode: the game will run in a window rather in full screen mode, I suggest play in full screen mode to prevent problems if your multitasking. You can set the resolution how you want, be sure to choose wisely, the better resolution the smoother the game runs.
If you enable most settings, be sure to check if your game is running smooth without much lag, be sure to get everything out the game, so you can play without any problem, you can also change the settings from your graphic card enable super sampling this means, that your graphic card works faster, and you have a higher graphic possibility, everything get's refreshed more times than usual, you can also enable shadows but only use these if you have a good graphic card it's not necessary to have shadows enabled.
~ Single Player ~
In the beginning you can choose what kind of race you want to be and what gender. Each race has unique superpowers which can have a advantage against your enemies. You can upgrade your skills and gain more health, stamina, block, speed, etc, for your character. The better you shoot at your enemy the faster you get points. when you reached specific levels you unlock automatic skilled upgrades, or the ability to put more points in your desirable skill, you can choose the difficulty rate yourself.
~ Classes ~
Soldier, Engineer, Adept, Infiltrator, Sentinel, and Vanguard.
Soldiers: have special powers in attacking enemies with weapons.
Engineer: are able to hack faster resources, and they are handy with biotech powers and they have the ability to control and disable the opponents equipment.
Adept, Infiltrator, Sentinel, and Vanguard, the powers are combined so you can choose the same things as a soldier, engineer you can have special upgrades so basically it's the same as the first two classes but they look different and attack differently.
~ Tips ~
you create your own storyline by reacting on comments from all kind of species, but be aware you can give negative or positive reactions, if you answer each question in a negative way, then you will become "known" as a renegade person. That means that you are major bad, and have a reputation that you can't be annoyed if they do, they will get killed or humiliated by you. And everybody is than afraid of you.
If you give only positive reactions as in comments, than people will react differently and they threat you bad and they are not afraid of you, so you need to make them furious in order to negotiate perfectly, if you are afraid of them, they won't give you enough information which is crucial for your tasks, so best thing is to be a renegade person, also by the looks of it, each time you gain a renegade point, your face will slowly begin to form scars, the more points the more visible your scars become.
Don't skip the story lines, otherwise you can be confused on how the story proceeds and that can have a negative influence on the story, if you choose something use it wisely and look something on your codex, to see what you need to do.
~ Game settings ~
The sims3 has allot of options considering the fact, that most computers old and new ones can be played on high settings, well it makes the game spectacular. The requirements are low compared to the "new games" that are coming out daily.
When you start the game it automatic detects your performance settings for your graphic card, so it goes all automatic, you can have surround sound, and you can enable the full-hd option that is available so you can play on high detailed settings. (high definition) you got also a option to set your aging off, this is useful if you got only adults and want to get allot of money out of them, but there is also a downside if you got allot of children it will take a while before they will grow into a adult.
~ Pregnancy ~
Is actually the same as in the previous games of the Sims, but some things are new like reading books how to raise your child, it's useful if your new into the game and want to have a good healthy baby, you can also adopt children, but raise your children well otherwise, your child will be taken away by the social workers, and all your work to your child will be gone, when the day arrives a message will popup saying that you need to go to the hospital as fast as possible, after a couple minutes you will get out of the hospital and a new baby has been born, and you can give the baby a name depends on the gender which baby name you will give.
~ The Neighborhood ~
You can have all the friends that you want, but be sure to visit them often or call them otherwise you relationship with them will end up in a failure, you can also click on a house and see how much people are living in there, or when you are playing in-game you can select a store and you can follow them, by double clicking on the icon of the person.
It automatically chooses the quickest way to the destination, in the previous games of the Sims, it took a while before you could browse for new clothes in this game, it goes rather quick so they have improved some things. You can also meet old friends on the way to your destination, talk with allot of people, because they are needed to improve your job experience.
You got also a cemetery there you can give deceased family a private place, without having them in your home and mind. Also a library is there now, a hint, always go there to train your Sims all the books that you can find, because they train it harder there, the environment is nicer and it increase faster than in a normal home. Also a public swimming pool for relaxation and a park to make contacts, or to play chess.
You can customize the Sims that already live in the houses, or you can create your own Sims, it's also helpful that you don't create too much house members, especially children because they are not needed well they are, but they are lazy and they can't get you allot of money, adults can before you start to work be sure to have the needed skills to improve your job experience, the better skills your character has the more money you make, and closer you get to archive your goal.
~ Houses ~
An important part of your Sims is their natural home, you have more options to build your own house, but in the beginning you don't have allot of money, so I suggest that you buy a building that is already made, so you save some bucks for the needed things, like a shower/kitchen.
Or the proper things, that you need to improve your skills, but don't buy too much because you can't get the money back, but keep in mind that you need to pay the bills. Always have money around to pay the bills and to prepare meals, otherwise you will starve and that is not healthy for the Sims , you can buy later on a large villa or you can build your own house from the scratch, but it's time and money consuming, so know what you're doing because it takes some patient and skill to build something incredible and noble.
~ Traits ~
Each Sims has the ability to have five Traits, it can be anything from having a characteristic skill or the ability to flirt with someone or special flirt, you can also create a genius with allot of guts, you can develop the Sim you want, also it's cool if you made a rare build, if you get children with that build they are going to be major smart, and have advantage they can earn allot of money, even with doing homework then they are going to be a straight A student, and it can be handy to have a extra income.
~ Lifetime wishes ~
Subsidiary on the personal skills from your Sims you can choose a lifetime wish, you have the ability to swim in the gold, or a numerous of dates, or you want to have a threesome and further, or you want to be successful with your work, and maximize your job performance. The more life time happiness points you gain in game, the better you Sim can be.
You can choose allot of special equipment that can help you to skill up your work performance and climb the ladder faster, this means you can get way more money from your job, or you can have choose other things, but all those things cost points that you can get by completing easy tasks, from buying things to make love to a person.
You can also choose a special helm that can zip your mood to the maximum so you can gain faster skills, or work harder, then usual without getting tired, and without sleep! You can give that helm to anybody you want, that's the trick about it, but it cost quite allot of points, and you can buy money trees, yes you heard that right money that grows on trees, I wonder if they exist in real life hah.
~ Career choices ~
There are a couple new careers, such as living at your home selling paintings, writing novels or growing fruit and vegetables, to get some extra cash and there are also the old ones, Law enforcement, Athletic.
Part time jobs pay less than full time jobs, keep that in mind. Also teens can join a part-time career.
Advancing in a career still depends on mood and skills, but also relationships with colleagues/boss and even certain goals that have to be fulfilled.
Some jobs you can work at home behind a computer, to write reviews about your work experience that day, at the same time you can write a novel to get quick money, or if you're smart enough you can also hack some details, yes that's a option it's quick earned money! If you managed to get to the top you can climb even further, it still increase the hourly/daily made money rate, but it still shows it as (10) behind your job, but always keep the Sim fit, before you go to your work, that improves allot, keep talking with your boss and your colleagues, and party sometime invite all your have friends and keep your personal life up to date.
Call Of Duty 1
~ Overview ~
Around 6 years ago, I bought my first shooter game, it was my first time that I thought about buying a game, and especially a shooter genre, Normally I would play different game styles, but that's me, I was always into the gaming world. The time that I bought the game the price was still high it was 50 euro yea, 6 years ago we had the euro I was thinking about that. The next day I bought the expansion pack, Call Of Duty united offense, both games were perfect but I liked the first game more, after a while new maps were introduced, but I used to play the same maps over and over.
~ Game Options ~
If you got a average pc, you can play on the highest settings even if you got a hd-support function, you can enable it in-game, and also the sound you can modify everything for your needs. It's also handy if you are in-game you can save screenshots by pressing, f12 and then it saves automatic a format a big one, but you can choose whenever you want to be something saved, you can choose f12. You can also install fraps which is available for free on the web, fraps is basically a program that can record, in-game matches and then you can watch them, but a downside of that program is the movie files that are being made are kind of big, so you need to compress them into a different format, the quality stays the same, but the size shrinks.
~ Single player ~
When you enter in the single player, you always get allot of movies, you can skip them by pressing Escape I believe, but I don't recommend it because they made these movies not for nothing, if you watch them you can see the storyline, if you start you can choose, different difficulty grade, choose the one that fits with you, for the beginners choose the lowest, or normal, try to play it out on the same level, and then after you have completed each task, start a higher grade and be ready to own everyone in the online mode, you have allot of maps, most of them are a bit different in the multiplayer mode, but the overlook is the same, you fight as different nations, you start with a German, and you can experience different weapons.
~ Multiplayer ~
Be sure to have some skills otherwise you get killed easily, you can join allot of servers, but join a server with the lowest ping settings, because that's a server that is located nearby you, and the less ping the better you play, be sure to know the maps, you can also search on youtube, for nadetricks so if you spawn into the game you can throw a nade, and kill several people with it. That is a advantage because the less people that are in a match, the more change your team can be victorious and that's what you want, also be sure to watch your score and in game words, it's a kill-death ratio so if you get 10 kills you need to have like 2 deaths then you got a 1:5 ratio, normal average kill streak ratio is 1:2. If you got some skill, you can also check Clanbase. That is a website for professional gaming, so you need to have some skills, to be taken serious. The more skill you got the higher the change is that you can get a sponsor and get paid to play, who wouldn't like that, well you must consider to practice allot to get a good reputation, the best players from the world are gathered there, and sometimes you can watch recorded pro matches, from players that are insanely good, if you see how they play, ofcourse with teamspeak that's how they communicate. They play good, it looks like they are cheating but that's a negative, because they know each spawn location of a map, and normally they throw a grenade there and then the teammates move in as quick as possible, and they got you covered and you can kill them, that's a strategy how they play.
This game totally rocks I give it a 10 from scale 1-10, so it's still worth buying the gaming, because it rocks!.
~ My story ~
I was waiting for this game to be released and finally, the moment has arrived, the game is out!
I was so excited I pre-ordered it right away, but I don't have allot of time to play it online, that's a bummer though. But in order to play proper and play against players , you need to gain your knowledge.
And by knowledge I mean, the strategy of the game, you can also play against the computer. But take this advice, start to play at a normal game type, like easy, learn the game piece by piece. And take the ability to learn, in other words pay attention when your building your race.
Also notice during the game, a unit has a cool voice the one from Arnold Schwarzenegger.
~ The races ~
The zergs has 22 units consisting out: baneling: the baneling is an explosive zerg strain, evolved from the zergling, also has a cocoon, a brood lord, and cocoon,
Attack units Changeling, Corruptor, Drone: is used to extend your capacity infested swarm egg, infestor larva and it has a Queen, you can use a Queen to plant eggs inside your main building and each time, there comes 5 larves out of it.
Assault dropship is a aerospace transport, battlecruiser, can attack ground and air. Firebat: is a robot that can attack only at the ground. Ghost: special made soldiers who are quite expensive and powerful.
Grizlly: can transport limited troops. Marine trained standard soldiers to attack ground units, and air.
Siege tank: powerful tank that can suck up to the ground and it will shoot larger artillery rounds.
Vulture: is a fast mobile unit that can attack on ground, and you can use it to scout the enemy.
Arbiter: warship specializing in providing psychic support. Carrier: can transport units mobile.
Corsair: fast space warship that can attack units quick and agile.
High templars: are powerful templers that can support forces and have powerful abilities, but downside, they move slow.
Probe: anti-ground units that can be placed on ground and can attack units.
~ Game options ~
If you got a normal pc, and by normal I mean like a average pc, or laptop you will be able to play, at the maximum performance and the game will still be fast, if you set it up to normal speed, be sure to enable all the settings that you want at the best is the maximum setting for each tab, like sound, graphics, controls, game performance.
~ Multiplayer part ~
You can play online against other players, or versus a player in your house (lan) but you can only do that if you bought the game, it is wisely to play allot of matches, against unknown and known players. So you can gain friends, and become some sort of legend and, try to win as much matches as possible.
~ My overview ~
This game truly rocks, you can also see allot of players online on youtube, playing this game, these players are really great, take a pen and take some notes, how they play and replicate them, and try their styles, some great players get a contract, well most of them are Asian Players, no offence though, they get paid to play I read somewhere that a player needed to play a minimum of 10 hours each day in order to get paid.
My girlfriend ordered one a month ago, it's flashy I must say, and everything is touchable but well, this is a good piece of equipment if you got the money for it, it has wifi access and you can use the INTERNET for free, you can play Movies that you like or a tv-shows and also Music, but for the movies you need to convert it before you will be able to play. it has allot of features, and you can download or buy allot of applications, name it and it's available to buy/download. it is also handy that you can put it easy in your pocket. this is the newest trend and will sell good, because it looks professional, and you can compare it to a ipad, but then smaller and cheaper ofcouse. But be sure to have the latest software because it is easier to use, and things work way faster then normal.
This game is a follow up from the first part, that was Call of Duty, Modern Warfare 1, it is improved way more weapons, DLC content (download Able Content) if you own the game that is, the online part is cool and it looks realistic, like it is real I wonder how the new game will look like, it was worth the money, I bought it even pre-ordered it. I was so excited about it couldn't sleep some days even before the release date, the multiplayer part, is awesome you play against other people from around the world, you join a match and need to wait a minute, when it's collection players and when it's ready you can kill each other!, you got challenges that you need to complete in order, to get better weapons, upgrades. but be aware sometimes you got a crappy host, and you will lose mostly the match or you get disconnected, that's the only downside of this game, and the single player is worth to play I tell you, can choose between different level integrations, choose the middle one, so you can get familiar with the game and the strategy of your fellow soldiers. if you got a good graphic card you can play at high settings, but don't set it to high otherwise it will interrupt your gameplay, so choose wisely how to get the maximum settings out of your graphic card. overall I give this game from a scale out of 10 a 12, because the game is just perfect, and you can have pleasure but also some bad days, and play fair, and build up friends so you can play against them, the better and the more you play the more change you get in getting in the rank list.
I own this Keyboard, like 2 years now, never been broken or returned I believe it has still a warranty left, but I won't use it because this keyboard is easy to use, it types perfectly, you got the G keys which you can program yourself (macro's) 19 on the M1 side and another 19 on the m2 and M3 side so basically 57 programmable keys. for each function of a game, or shortcuts onto your computer, it is handy if your lazy like me and have no patient and want, a program directly without all the searching time that come with it, or getting a headache when the computer is stressing, it comes with a handy scrolls tools with that you can control the volume, and the standard play,pause,stop,next,return keys. it has also 2 options in lighting well both blue but the first is lighter and the second option is darker so every key, has a blue light on it, you can also lock your keyboard for child protection or something else your choice, but it's easy you just move the button to the right and it's locked, so easy is that, and it has two, usb ports, I believe both are 2.0 if I'm not mistakes but only use short power using tools like a pen drive, never use big components like a external hardrive, because it sucks literally all the power out of your computer and then it's price, it can burn or damage your computer so use only light products who have a low power usage. and you can clean it also, carefully pull the buttons out of your keyboard, and clean it with a compressor, after that re-clean it with a towel. So if you are looking for a lifetime keyboard this is a must have!.
My parents own a dishwasher, this type, it is extremely useful. because we were use to wash the plates with our own hands, so it's a plus side that we got a dishwasher for quite some time now. it has allot of space in the rack, you can set the dishes in the upper cabinet, and the glasses at the right side, and the services in the down stock. you got different programs to wash, you can use the quick method that will last approximate 15 minutes, but if you got all the stocks full then, most things will be clean and fresh, but not all, so the best thing to do is use the longest program will last around 30-45 minutes or up to a hour, depends on the program you choose, and then everything will be smooth and clean, and ready for use, it has a child lock to prevent children from opening it. and the washing tablets you can choose basically every brand. but use sometimes special made salt tablets to clean the dishwasher, or you can let it run the longest program or short program with basically nothing in it, so that the dishwasher can be cleaned on it's own. and another plus side it is good for the environment so it saves your in the bills, but it only expensive in the purchase.
I bought this cellphone a while back, to be honest it was love on first side, it lays easy in the hand, not so expensive then most cellphones out of there, well this cellphone has less performance but that's normal because of the price, so this cellphone is for the normal "budget" it has allot of features, it is handy that it comes with a 2.0 mega pixel camera well in my experience that's quite good, I remember the old cellphones with no camera at all so it's a plus side, but on most cellphones it's a standard thing that it has, a other good feature is it has a touch screen, so everything is basically touchable, it can store 500 text messages, you can extend the memory to 16 GB, mine has 8gb and that's plenty for things like a cool mp3 song that, you like and want to share with others, well then you can use bluetooth to send it to your friends. And you can listen to a FM radio, well if you got the earplugs from the cellphone then you can listen to it, otherwise you can't. it has INTERNET on it so you can get INTERNET. well that's not my thing because it is expensive as hell, so be aware of the risk when you get/got a cellphone with a wireless connection, but that's for everyone them self to decide what to do with that, so my advice is if you got the money for it buy it, because it looks cool, and fits in your hands, and is easy to use, and it has not much buttons, and a downside is I type faster then the processor reacts, so people that are slow in response it is great for them, but with me also sometimes, but when I'm in a rush I do things differently.
I have bought this TV, a while back, it has a killer view, it has 4 HDMI ports available keep in mind that you normally use 1 HDMI port because you have only 1 view point, but you can inplug all the components, so it's easier when you turn the components on you got instant connection with the TV, this TV is good for the environment well they say that about each TV. it supports 1080p ( 1680-1050 ) Resolution so you got the best quality there is, supported on your TV what do you want more? I use it for Gaming daily, well most of the time, the View is amazing but, in the beginning it took me a week to get used to the dynamic view of the TV, everything was easy to install, never experienced any difficulties, it has also a VGA input so you can inplug it onto your Graphic card as main TV, and perhaps a 2nd screen for your PC, as 2nd screen for surfing and, the standard TV. For gaming of your can configure it yourself, Keep the screen so clean as possible because it is a dust eater, use a towel make it a bit wet, just a tiny spot and clean the TV, Important note let the TV cool down for quite some time Minimum 15-30 minutes, and then start the cleaning, never use a screwdriver to open it, why?, because it's a danger component and it can have a danger voltage open when you used it and then open it so be careful and use it wisely!.
Without my Ipod classic, I won't stand up for school, work, each day I need the Ipod to come out of my bed seriously, it's worth the money, most people have not allot of music, well I'm different I got a huge list of numbers that I imported onto, my ipod, so basically it's full with 60gb on music and. I Update the list frequently so new songs can be added and old songs can be removed, I bought myself a cloth for over the Ipod, without it my Ipod would be full with scratches and all kind of things, You can put basically everything onto the Ipod, from songs to Movies, tv-shows for the movies and the TV-shows part you need to convert the files onto a special format to be compatible with the ipod, The downside is that it is a old generation, so no Touch options, so if you want to buy a touch version you need to have quite the money, because those things are kinda expensive, and they have less the Storage, then this big one, and a thing that you must consider, always have the software updated, for better performance, and faster access to your data, and for faster copying your songs onto your ipod via itunes. it's kinda heavy so you won't lose it, but be aware if you put your Ipod to the maximum volume, then the change of getting new earplugs every 1-2 weeks is considerable, those things cost quite allot, but buy special made earplugs like the ones on the picture the real, Ipod earplugs those are pricey but like the Ipod, you get quality and quantity!
I have got this mouse some time ago, I was looking for a special designed Gaming mouse, and I found one it's the, Razer Diamondback I was impressed by the looks of it, I have a blue one and it is worth the money for sure, but It has allot of features if you install the latest drivers, you can set up the button speed from each things, so you can surf ultra-fast or game with it, with 2 buttons you can set it how you want 10,000 dpi or lower, there are allot of options, and the price is consider good for this piece of equipment, I must say I'm a razor fan now because the services is major good, I had a different one before but the scroll button was not working properly I called them, the next day they said you can send it in only problem was, that I needed to pay the, shipping cost, and they would repair it for free under the warranty of the product, and they would pay the shipping cost of the product, when it was ready, so the services of razor is absolutely great, so I recommend every gamer, to buy a razor product, because they are awesome and special made for gamers.
I have bought this audio set a while ago, I first had a Logitech X-540 5.1, but I wanted a better set and I must say, it is powerful I hear allot of people saying that it is not that powerful, well they are wrong. I got a sound card integrated onto my pc, it has the same DTS, as the speakers, so you can control the bass, the volume and the surround sound, even better with this integrated sound card, another good thing is, place the boxes around your room, like the center above your tv-screen, the other one at the left and the right, the other 2 behind your bed, and the sub woofer under your desk, but I must warn you though, I had allot of noise complaints, well the walls are not so thick and the neighbors are self noisemakers, but after all it is a great set for the price, no wonder it has a award, and the looks of the speaker set is really professional, they thought about it with their brains. so a must buy!
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!
