- Speed and features The i5 CPU easily handles all my work related tasks, including Photoshop and multiple instances of Visual Studio. It also plays most games with ease.
- Design and form factor It looks sharp and I have no complaints about the overall design. I would probably prefer the VGA port be on the back, but it's not a major concern.
- Battery life If you use the performance features of Windows 7 wisely, the battery life is good. I generally have it plugged in so cannot really judge this category.
- Display Looks good. Good resolution.
- Durability No comments
- Expandability No comments
- Noise No comments
- Portability (size / weight) No comments
Overall I really like this laptop. The video card is lackluster and won't run top-end games on high settings, but that is to be expected. The only real complaint I have about this model is the dead areas on both sides of the spacebar. I frequently miss spaces when typing due to this. I have confirmed with a coworker that his unit has the same issue. It may affect you depending on where your thumb naturally falls when typing.
