Excerpt: I got this laptop off buy.com back in August 2010. Great price (around 500 bucks) and very satisfactory. I've been using it for school, and a lot of graphic designing. Often, I have Adobe's Illustrator, Photoshop, and InDesign open at the same time, along with a ton of other applications (including an internet browser with 10 or so tabs open). Still runs very quickly and smoothly. Also love its facial recognition feature. Very sleek design and looks great!
Excerpt: I bought this laptop prior to black friday. I'm very pleased with it especially for the price. The A52F-XA1 is built solid, doesn't creak like many other laptops in this price range. It's not too heavy for a 15.6" laptop, weighs right around 6lbs. If you are looking for a laptop to just browse the internet, do some minor photo editing and running office applications, this is the perfect laptop.
Summary: I absolutely love this laptop so far. I've only had it a couple of weeks now but I use it every day and have no complaints whatsoever! Have yet to use the bluray player but I'm not concerned as everything thing else about it works great. It's super fast and display is very crisp and clear. My old laptop, which was only 2+ yrs, was extremely frustrating and going downhill very fast so it was time for an upgrade and I'm very pleased with my choice.
Summary: What more can I say? Intel Core i5-480M 2.66GHz processor with 4 GB of DDR3 memory + Blue-ray DVD player for only $600 (at the time of my purchase) is a great bargain. I have not found any other laptops in this price range with these specs. Few highlights: - Excellent price - Solid performance for running day to day applications and web surfing - Very few bloatware - Good looking screen - Fairly good speakers for a laptop - Stylish looking laptop and not too bulky for...
Summary: I just purchased this laptop, and let me be the first to tell you that it is worth your money. It is blazing fast, and has many features not found at this price point. You are essentially getting a great laptop for your money. Try to find a laptop with blu ray at this price, that is also an i5. Most likely, you won't. I've had this laptop for a few weeks now. Great product. Would definately recommend.
Summary: I have had this laptop for nearly 2 years now and it runs very smoothly, I can word process, the dvd player is of HD standard and it plays music beautifully. It looks sleek and top-end. The i3 processor is fantastic. You can store a lot of documents and music/ picture files and not come close to it being full.
