Pros: I am delightfully impressed by this value-priced laptop. It's a year old hold-over so-to-speak which is why so cheap but guess what? A lot of good specs for the $ and overall very good performance. Of course 2GB of RAM is minimal but you buy it with that in mind - I have a 4G stick of Mushkin 1333 coming (no reason to pay for DDR 1600 as the proc doesn't support it so it will get down-clocked anyway) and planned to from the git-go. Great performance and features on so many other features, especially for a three-bill with free shipping! Forget about serious 3D gaming on this but as a workstation driving a new 1080p led monitor can't be beat and with Win 7 pro pre-installed good luck finding a better value, even the native laptop screen is just gorgeous. Gigabit LAN, HDMI and VGA, USB 3.0 (actually three USB ports) and if you are really power hungry replace the somewhat slow 5400 RPM HDD with a speedier one. Oh, also runs cool and silent all-day long and nearly 6 hrs on battery.
Other Thoughts: Built this as a portable budget dev workstation and couldn't be much happier though I do wish these lower-end laptops had stayed with dual-channel memory - oh well - buy it while you can !!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I build high-performance gaming platforms for a hobby, been doing it for a long time. Acquired one of these recently and can honestly say it is probably the best value out there right now for the money. Genuinely impressive performance for a single-slot solution.
Cons: None really
Other Thoughts: Would encourage having a proc and mb that support pcix 3.0 to really get the full benefit. Also low power consumption and VERY quiet.READ FULL REVIEW
