powerful economical notebook,
This review is from: eMachines E725-4520 Laptop Win7 Pentium T4400 2.2G 15.6″ 3GB Ram 250GB WiFi 6-cell battery DVD-super Multi DL Drive GMA 4500M (Personal Computers)
inexpensive for its power and speed. good looking. large brilliant screen with wonderful colors.
key board and internal speakers are an issue. poor speakers and a poor keyboard.
buyers may wish to experiment with external speakers and external keyboard if you are going to be using the keyboard a lot for text entry.
the computer itself is quite powerful for its cost, no heat, no noise, no processor or fan noise or vibration.
looks to be solid build. not the lightest laptop, but solidly built.also WIN 7 does have some glitches related to compatibility and proprietary issues with other Microsoft software,
Microsoft and WIN 7 does not like Google Chrome, for example, some issues with MS software downloads with Chrome, with Win 7. however,
XP computers are hard to get now unfortunately.
if you need to do serious text entry and require a really good keyboard, I would suggest that you spend some time with this keyboard before buying this computer. make sure it will work for you.
do not buy it sight unseen and untested. if the keyboard and internal speakers are not important to you, this laptop might work for you.
despite this laptops high processor power for the price, and other good points, IF you require an excellent keyboard and/or speakers with normal volume, I would not recommend this laptop.
