Summary: i had an old 17" P4 and when i saw this 18.4" core i7 at under $900 i figured it was time to upgrade. it's a super fast win7 machine, that runs quiet and cool. the keyboard is amazing, especially the dedicated numeric keypad. the touchpad is decent, but i prefer external mice, and the wireless one i had was automatically recognized by win7 without drivers needing to be installed.
Summary: Use this laptop for small business software development. Attend conferences, screen size allows me the ability to manage multiple things at same time(PDFs and browser). 8 GB RAM + i7 processor crushes the multi-tasking process. Get interest from other small biz on clarity of screen and images. Plan to make this laptop company-wide system of choice.
Summary: I really like my computer and the price was great. It is lightweight and easy to use. The only bad features are the shiny cover which gets finger prints easily and it is hard to find a cover due to the size.
Summary: Nice feel to the key stroke. Contrasting lettering on keys easy to see in dim light. Quiet fan with cleanable air filter. Four USB ports give it flexibility. Starts up from hibernating when the screen is lifted. Fits on the XPad for cool running. Included a thin, durable fabric cover for the screen front and back. Great for web surfing and YouTube. No need for my old desktop and monitor now. Of course it's a fingerprint magnet. Too big for traveling easily.
Summary: I use the computer everyday. It was easy to get used to after only using a Mac for 20 years although some things I haven't figured out yet. I like Windows 7. I had to get a large laptop because of very very poor eyesight. The touchpad seems a little sensitive.
Pros: Comfortable Keyboard, EASY TO USE, Fast, Large clear lcd, Lightweight, Powerful, Quality Display, Quiet, Stays cool
Summary: I looked a long time for a laptop with a large screen and good graphics card. only wish list is a dial up modem and stronger speakers,,but ear buds can fix that fast. I recommend this laptop and its great for the money. Keyboard seems to be built well, and yes,it does youtube fine. It picks up weak wifi signals better than my toshiba (which is nice also). It is very light weight also, in fact, I thought they sent an empty box at first.
Pros: Fast, Good graphics card, Lightweight, Powerful, Quality Display
