Pros:

Very fast, great with games, screen is outstanding.

Cons:

Should ship with 2GB, initial Vista setup is terrible

Other Thoughts:

I purchased this laptop along with a Corsair VS1GSDS667D2 DIMM to add a second gig. The laptop is a great value even without the added RAM, it plays games like Oblivion acceptably well at 1280x800 and pretty much everything about the hardware is top notch. Even the little USB mouse it comes with is good for gaming.

The only bad thing was the Vista setup. The out of box experience is terrible, the machine just bogs down as it tries to update Vista, Norton, Windows Defender, etc, and all of the Vista security stuff is a nightmare. Removing norton, disabling UAC, and disabling Windows Search service made all the difference. It's now just as useable as my XP desktop, even with all of the Aero visual effects enabled -- the video card is more than able to handle that, it scores a 4.8 on the Vista Experience graphics ratings.

Adding the RAM was a snap, just unscrew the big panel and pop the DIMM into the free socket. The laptop automatically detects it without going into the BIOS
