WONDERFUL for the first month 04/01/2009
*Perfect for students that love to game.
*I upgraded to Vista 64-bit, and it runs great.
*Can play Crysis on High quality with physics maxed (slightly glitchy. If played on Medium with physics maxed, really smooth)
*Processor - 5.3
*RAM - 5.9
*Graphics - 5.9
*Gaming Graphics - 5.8
*HDD - 5.5
*When on battery, can get almost 4 hours.
*Has number pad
*Comes with nice-looking laptop backpack which works fine for school (unless you are toting around 5 classes worth of books)
*Backpack started tearing at shoulder and between shoulders after first month
*The material around the screen started buckling after a month, leading to it cracking at the corner!
There were other cons, but those are mostly covered by other reviews. These two cons were really bad. I am a very careful person and take good care of my things. I can understand the backpack ripping...who gives a really high quality backpack for free...but I can't forgive the crack. Maybe if I wasn't careful in handling it, I would, but I am extremely careful. This buckling and crack happened just through normal use. I don't pay $1300 to get a laptop from a company that claims to make high-quality equipment and expect to see a crack that quickly. If it wasn't for that, I would have given this laptop 6/5 eggs! I have absolutely loved it. It still works great, but I don't want a crack.
