Good, but wasn't the same computer as description
on June 24, 2009
-Good computer, good sound for a laptop, the sub-woofer helps.
-Nice, big display.
-The keyboard is nice.
-Touch pad works great.
-Bought it for my son & he LOVES it (Ok, that's more of a personal pro...)
-cool "touch buttons" to turn on bluetooth, sub-woofer, wireless & webcam
-Finger print reader is very picky, rarely recognizes finger print on the first or second try, in fact, it usually takes many swipes before it finally logs in, which defeats the purpose. Password is MUCH faster.
-The webcam is terrible.
-Not a gaming laptop, but can play less demanding games at lower resolutions. To give you an idea, Titan Quest is choppy at times.
-Gets HOT. I purchased a laptop cooler, the "ZALMAN Ultra Quiet Notebook Cooler Model ZM-NC1500", which works great, from here:
When I purchased this laptop, the description was for a better computer, with a better ATI dedicated video card, more memory & a bigger hard drive. I was disappointed when this computer showed up on my door step. I called amazon.com customer support, but they told me I needed to call the manufacturer. After a little research on the web [...]. , I realized amazon's description was wrong, but the price was right for the computer I received, & my son was VERY happy with it, so I just kept it. Looks like they've since corrected the description, so now you know what you're actually getting. Yes it's worth the price, buy I would've loved to have received the other computer...
