3 out of 5 eggsDecent for what it is

Pros: Great power for the money, screen is nice and bright, keyboard is responsive and nice.

Cons: Tiny freaking arrow keys, after about a year in the video card received some damage, it now skips out when I watch videos and do something else at the same time. Also the thing is made from poor quality plastic, the interior screw mounts break off easily upon disassembly, my laptop is now held together by super glue.

2 out of 5 eggsGood Except Major Con

Pros: Good processor and memory for the price

Cons: The trackpad on this laptop is just plain in the WRONG place. It lies directly under your left palm when you are typing. This means that when you type on this keyboard you constantly accidentally click by double-tapping the trackpad. It will switch your windows while you fill in forms on webpages, and just plain drive you crazy.

Other Thoughts: I don't own this EXACT model but it has the same exact body as my 5740g-6979 (which was only a little bit pricier last year when they sold it but was significantly better) so I just wanted to warn people against the trackpad on the Aspires with this body!

5 out of 5 eggsSOHO on a budget

Pros: Boot time in Win7 and login better than expected.

Meets expectations as a home office and travel machine.

Works well on office apps, GIMP, 2D Drafting, databases with lots of scientific data management and plot rendering, and PDF rendering/manipulation. Runs fine when four or five apps running.

Satin, checkerplate weave finish hides fingerprints, but frame around screen and screen won't if you like to touch for some reason.

Cons: Fan a little noisy when opening apps or saving. I haven't used a laptop in a year so this may be common in recent multi-core models. You should check other reviewers.

Does not handle XD memory cards and has glare from glossy screen, but knew this when purchasing this budget machine.

Other Thoughts: Our of the box WEI scores:
- 3D biz and gaming 5.1, Aero 4.6 ( I don't use either in this office environment)
- Processor 6.7
- RAM 5.9
- Hard disk transfer rate 5.9.

Typical trialware to uninstall.

Newegg is great!!!
