Good for computing

Jordan F., Newegg
1 December 2014
  • Summary: Overall a good buy for a college-going individual. Not the best laptop, but it's durable and has nice features.
  • Pros: This laptop has quite a bit of power for calculations and such. Its hard drive capacity was more than enough for 4 years of college for me. It has a fairly large screen with nice differences in brightness between settings. The stock battery typically lasted 4-6 hours at the start and now lasts mo...
  • Cons: This year the fan is finally dying. I kept the laptop clean and took it apart multiple times per year to ensure there was no dust accumulation and this helped keep heat down. The one fan inside has a non serviceable bearing, making the original lubrication the only thing keeping it spinning. This...

Good laptop for the price

Alex, Amazon
19 January 2013
  • Summary: I've had this a little over a month now and I can say I am pleased with it. Considering I got it for 350 it was a steal. It does freeze up for about 3 seconds every now and then but it doesn't happen enough for me to hate it.

  • Pros: Look at my previous review.
  • Cons: Windows crashed once at startup. EDIT: I mentioned that I am not entirely pleased with the GPU when I play SC2. I take that back, as I am pleased with it!!!!

First Impression

Khizar J., Newegg
11 December 2010
  • Summary: After obsessing about the CPU and GPU , I realized that most mid range GPU will all be pretty much the same, and all high range ones will be pretty much the same. So I should have been obsessing over the features of the laptop, like webcam, keyboard etc.
  • Pros: When you're buying a computer online, there are some specifications that you can look for. In this computer, the processor and GPU are great. I won't say much about the pros because they are already listed in the specifications.
  • Cons: The things that you can't look for when buying online are the picture, sound quality and the feel. This makes it very inconvenient. I am comparing this computer to two Dell laptops I had, infact I am comparing to any laptop I have used. -Keyboard is something to get used to. I keep hitting the wr...

Computer Great/Company Bad

Clay B., Newegg
30 November 2010
  • Summary: The laptop is 5 eggs, the service is 1 egg... I split the difference. I purchased this item on November 24 at 10:00am in the morning. I received it Dec. 1, at 5:00pm. I splurged for 2nd day air and rush processing. Newegg dropped the ball, and this was not the first time.
  • Pros: Bang for your buck! 4Gb Ram, 500Gb HDD, WiFi b/g/n, Nice processor. 15.6 display! NVIDIA GeForce GT420M! Bam! I wanted a laptop to do it all, without splurging for a gaming laptop. I can Photoshop, Dreamweave play high quality games Civ 5, COD:BO (will be trying WoW soon). This laptop does it all!
  • Cons: Touchpad Touchpad Touchpad. HP Laptops, by far, have the best touchpads known to mankind, so clean, so smooth. Acer comes no where near.

Good laptop, cannot handle SSD

Chester P., Newegg
25 September 2010
  • Summary: Newegg is great. Fast shipping as usual. Hopefully they'll be understanding when I RMA this SSD.
  • Pros: Lightweight and sleek; nice bright screen; good price for an i5; Blu Ray.
  • Cons: Bought a 60GB OCZ SSD and it will not fit in the drive chassis. I'm really disappointed that this PC doesn't support this type of drive. The drive is either too fat or the SATA connector is "shrouded" as one other reviewer stated. Bloatware - this is an easy fix.

Good laptop, Horrible keyboard

11 August 2010
  • Pros: It runs most programs and games very well.
  • Cons: The keyboard is terribly, horribly, disgustingly weak. I owned it a day, and the key broke.

Chia W., Newegg
14 July 2010
  • Pros: Why I use HWiNFO32 find out the video adapter is not real NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M and instead of the GPU just is Intel HD Graphics? Or Intel HD Graphics = NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M , = =!
