- Speed and features Great for everyday use, but somehow slows down when viewing multiple tabs on chrome. Not many, just 5+ slows it down.
- Design and form factor Looks and feels great. It's all plastic, though.
- Battery life 'bout 5-6 hours running full specs. Nice for the $
- Display High density, but its lcd, not led.
- Durability All plastic. The bottom plastic cover is flimsy.
- Expandability Room for up to 8gb of ram. It's really great that it comes with a 320gb 7200rpm drive.
- Noise The fan is very oud. Specially running games or even video.
- Portability (size / weight) Not that light for the size.
I'm happy with what i got for the money. The screen is really good, but is too small for heavy use. . I can actually work on it (mainly web and office, a bit of CAD/CAM) but i had to plug in an extra monitor after a week. Same with he keyboard: it's nice but has no navigation keys, wich i use when i'm typing. 1080p video? 720p video runs ok if its mp4, but not mkv. 1080p is unwatchable. iTunes HD video runs fine. youtube 720p runs fine as well, but not 1080p.
