  • Summary: Plus, the X305 offers three USB ports (one of which doubles as eSATA), a 5-in-1media reader, and an ExpressCard slot, along with Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit. While the X305’s application performance is certainly commendable, its outrageous looks, lackluster gaming performance, and paltry battery life (one hour, eight minutes on power-saving mode) should consider its cons before making a purchase.
  • Pros: Beats dual-core rigs in multithreaded apps; 4.1 speakers rock.
  • Cons: Gaudy aesthetic; unimpressive gaming; piss-poor battery life.
