Very nice entertainment laptop
on October 17, 2011
I feel compelled to review this since there are so few reviews out there for this. Right off the bat, this is a very good looking laptop. My co-worker asked what I was doing purchasing another 1000$ laptop - little does he know what the true cost was. Anyway, outside of the great looks (it is covered in a copper colored metal on the lid and on the inside), I am impressed with the speakers -- nice sound for speakers (their higher lines have nicer speakers than these even). The A4 processor is able to play some basic games, and it has had no problem running HD video or Netflix). Machine is quiet, and I think I am getting about 2-3 hours playing video disconnected from an AC cord. Nice keyboard (as expected), very nice soft touch power/media buttons (back lit). Ok display - hard to compare to a MBP. Very quiet machine, so far runs very cool,and the fan, when running is largely silent. I have owned many, many laptops over the years, and $ for $, I have to say this is the best one I have had (and the least expensive that I have ever purchased - acknowledging that laptop and technology prices are very low right now). This laptop is not for gaming (as I knew), but beyond that, I can't see it having any issues with anything that I throw at it). I highly recommend it.
