Upon opening the monitor, I notice shelling is made of a thin, flat black plastic. A little on the cheap side, but this laptop is not meant to go off-road. Acceptable. The monitor is wide and very crisp. I was very disappointed in the video card. Granted, it is an integrated 4500M, but the resolution display cannot go any higher than 1366x768. I like my icons and screen to appear smaller, so I can essentially fit more onto my screen. The keys are well spaced and firm to the touch, so there is no accidental key-pressing. There is also an integrated accounting key-pad on the right, something my previous Compaq M2100 did not have, a plus for accounting/econ majors. The power cord seems pretty sturdy. Unlike my previous Compaq which was victim of a weak neck, the power cord is a 90 degree plug and reinforced with thicker amounts of synthetic plastic/rubber. Finally, the laptop weighs in at 5.65 pounds.
This laptop will be used for basic everyday use: Internet Browsing, Mail, Social networking, remote networking into work, MS Office and Videos/Music. I do not plan on using any photo or movie editing programs. I was able to browse the internet a bit. I checked my mail and social networks. The laptop seems efficient, but when I attempted to run two tabbed windows (Car Forum and Ytube) at once, one of the windows (YTube) crashed! Luckily, it was quickly recovered Windows. Not a big deal for people with patience, but I always run multiple tabs so this might be a problem in the future.
The laptop comes with Windows 7 64-bit, a plus.Read more ›
I am expecting accessories to be well supported and compatible between both brands.
At $279, this laptop is an excellent deal. Ordered on Wednesday, delivered before noon on Thursday.
The laptop is lightweight (lighter than my 13" Apple MacBook) and responsive (DVDs play seamlessly).
It just takes a couple of minutes to configure it. I was able to connect my WPA2 Wireless N network with no issue.
The power adapter accepts up to 240V and the power cord is detachable - this should be usable in Europe.
A webcam would have been a nice addition.
Large and bright screen
Full keyboard with keypad
Windows 7 license
Intel processor and video chipset
Reasonably fast and responsive
Up and running in two minutes
Reads DVDs out of the box
Battery comes half charged
Single core processor
Low powered speaker
Keypad skews keyboard to the right
I happened across this machine during a lightening deal (which seems to sporadically going in and out of effect for the past two to three days). For the price, this is an extremely capable machine, understandably with no extras to keep the price as low as it is.
Minimal software is included, but free options (Open Office, GIMP, VLC, iTunes) all run very decently.
DVD playback is adequate, although there is some hiccuping as the drive "spools" up initially, but is fine after a few seconds.
The wireless card works better then I would have expected, and has about the same range as my MacBook Pro.
I couldn't easily locate it before purchase, but the screen resolution is 1366 x 768.
Minimal pre-installed bloatware.
Plays Solitaire fine, I wouldn't trust it for anything more intensive than that though.
I was spoiled my Apples' trackpad included with their newest MacBook Pro, but the trackpad on here works quite nicely. While not being multi-touch capable, the included drivers / utilities allow you to set up sections to use as scrolling (for webpages), simulate momentum scrolling, and have hot-sections for gestures / commands.
The lid does feel a little flimsy, but under normal use doesn't seem like it should be problematic.
Very cheap, mono-speaker. If you're going to watch movies or play music, make sure you have some headphones.
If all you need as a bare-bones laptop, this machine is perfect.Read more ›
