Good solid laptop

Paul B., Newegg
6 July 2013
  • Summary: I was concerned that the 1.1ghz Celeron processor would be too slow. It seems fast enough. It's faster than the 1.3ghz AMD K325 Athlon 2 Turion processor in my old Toshiba laptop. The Celeron is a Sandy Bridge processor with integrated Intel graphics with a 17w TDP rating.
  • Pros: This is a good solid laptop at a good price. I was looking for an inexpensive laptop without Windows 8, and this fit the bill nicely.

Nice Notebook

Aaron N., Newegg
18 June 2013
  • Summary: For the price I paid, it does quite nicely. I could think of better notebooks with longer battery life, but this does what I need it to do.

  • Pros: Fast, good specs, plays HD video, ample RAM, decent performance, high quality LED backlit LCD.
  • Cons: HDD is on the small side, audio levels are very weak

  • Pros: -Hyperthreading 32nm CPU -3MB L3 Cache -Plenty of RAM for light applications -Sleek exterior, very durable -Beautiful crisp display -Clean shiny finish on glass
  • Cons: -None!
