Summary: I bought this laptop last year to replace my old CoreDuo (yes not even core2) laptop which couldn't even do youtube at 720p anymore. Being a laptop, I didn't have terribly high expectations of it.
Pros: Light weight, good screen size and display, front camera is a nice addition, APU is up to most tasks with ease, battery life is still decent, room for another stick of 4gb ram, takes a beer spill like a champ
Cons: 1366x768 max resolution (really I mean c'mon), black finish is a magnet for smudges/fingerprints/etc, heats up during prolonged graphics intensive operations, comes with a suite of stupid preinstalled software like every other computer ever, remained fairly sticky from beer spill until thoroughly...
Summary: Lasted me roughly 5 years. Not bad, but too heavy for my taste. If you are a student, stick around 3lbs with a 11inch display. Ive worn the poor thing down so low it wont even turn on for me anymore. but it went through the long haul and is pretty durable.
when i first got it it was pretty slow but now i download programs its pretty fast ...
