great laptop for the money 6/2/2010 12:47:40 PM

Pros: Agree with previous reviewers - great bang for the buck.

Cons: I can't fix the somewhat annoting power cord beep. Tried lotharamious's fix, but I do not have "PC beep" slider to adjust.

Overall Review: Buy it unless you can find something better this cheap.

Excellent Bang-for-Buck Lappy 5/18/2010 10:29:50 AM

Pros: Upper mid-range graphics, upper mid-range CPU, numpad, multitouch touch pad. Feels just as fast as my Q6600. Has decent multimedia-out options (HDMI, DSUB). Can play new games reasonably even with some eye candy. Plays old/older games very well, even at 1920x1200 with all eye candy (AOE3, Civ4). Very quiet and cool when not playing games. Though louder and warmer under full load, still quite quiet and cool, very impressed in the heat department. Wireless g and n work well. Webcam works well with decent colors and tracking with no noticeable lag.

Cons: LCD viewing angles. Really needs 1400x900 resolution to make this baby truly awesome. Can't find a driver for 'PCI Simple Communications Controller' on fresh install of Windows 7. Easy to mis-hit NumLock when trying to push Backspace. On-board Realtek sound isn't perfect but definitely acceptable for a lappy, and better than most. Integrated mic has low pickup. Doesn't have a Vertex 2. ;)

Overall Review: 2-2.5 hour battery time, web-browsing and listening to music.

Like giving someone a Redbull, giving this lappy an SSD will give it wings.

THE POWER CORD BEEP CAN BE ADJUSTED in Windows 7 by right-clicking the speaker icon in the system tray and going to Playback devices, then highlighting Speakers and hitting Properties, go to the Levels tab, and move the 'PC Beep' slider to the desired level. Windows 7 defaults the beep to 100%.

X-fi driver hack makes sound a bit better.

Ran like garbage out-of-box until I reinstalled Windows. Would buy another in a heartbeat. Highly, HIGHLY recommended.

Gooooooood Product 5/17/2010 10:44:45 PM

Pros: The best priced laptop for what it has.
No other laptops with such specs has such good pricing.

Plays Starcraft II on medium setting.
Pretty much, it'll play any good games on legit settings.

This is good laptop for college students who look for versatility and flexibility in little bit of everything.

Cons: Just like what most other people mentioned, the power plug.
It makes a REALLY loud beeping noise and only way to get rid of it is to open up the laptop and dismantling the sound hardware that makes the beep.

I honestly think that the plug coming out easily is a good thing. It's a security thing so that if you or someone else trips on the wire, it doesn't take down the laptop with it.

Other con is the low humming noise it makes every 10 minutes. Kinda gets annoying after awhile.

Great Laptop 5/17/2010 8:18:17 PM

Pros: Just got the laptop today ive been using it for about 8 hours. The screen is bigger than i thought. I downgraded from a 17.3 inch and there's little difference. Great wireless i have never seen these speeds from my home network. Fast Cpu and Gpu. I have not heard the fan yet. keeps cool even sitting on my bed it can through air out in front of the screen as well. The keys are nice and bouncy and dont make too much noise. the movement on the mouse pad is nice and smooth. Great overall performance and design.

Cons: The botton on the mouse pad take a while to get used too. Of course it is a finger print and cat hair magnet. Power plug comes out easy and beeps when ever its plugged in or taken off. Speakers arent that great at high volumes but it really does do a good job or virtual surround sound. Bloatware is worse than hp.

Overall Review: ive had this laptop for only 8 hours and i love it. The quality of build it top notch and the price is great. I sold my hp to buy this and will never turrn back. If you are buying this laptop and have had issues with drivers before( Hp ) you can rest assured you will be okay with this one

Very satisfied 5/16/2010 12:17:55 PM

Pros: Large keyboard makes for easy typing. Fast, thanks to the i5 550, and the 1GB in the Radeon 5650 is like a cherry on top. I have Starcraft 2 running at 70fps with medium graphics, 50 on high. Runs very cool and quiet. Light weight for its size as well.

Cons: I'm really feeling the 5400 rpm HD. Its not a huge deal, but a 7200 rpm HD is probably worth the looking into. As mentioned in previous reviews, the power cord is poorly designed. Not ideal for sitting on a lap while plugged in as it keeps popping out, but for what i use it for on a desk or table, does fine.

Overall Review: Overall a pretty awesome deal for the price. I shopped around for weeks and couldn't find anything better at $800. Very impressed with this machine, highly recommended!

Second one works great. 5/15/2010 9:23:42 AM

Pros: Great display, processing power, and video card. A mobile gamer and media affectionado's dream come true at a reasonable price.

Cons: None if you get one that works 100%.

Overall Review: This notebook can play Crysis on high settings just fine. Far Cry 2 also runs fantastic. These games are quite demanding of a computer. I am pleased at the results.

If one does not plan on using video out to a TV or monitor, I would suggest a notebook with a larger screen.

The first notebook I received was a lemon. The display would freeze and then shut off. Other times, a discolored checkered pattern would show up on screen. Newegg honored their 30-day replacement guarantee. It took about 3 weeks to get a new one. 1 week shipping to them, 1 week for inspection and RMA approval, and 1 week to ship a new unit. Customer service was helpful and quick to address the problem.

High-End HTPC 5/14/2010 9:43:27 AM

Pros: High-end HTPC performance for price of a mid level laptop. With Windows 7 Home Premium, Core i5-520M, 4GB RAM (expandable due to 64-bit OS), HDMI & 5.1 Surround Out, HD dedicated graphics with 1GB VRAM – researched for 3 months and found nothing that competes within several hundred dollars. Used for web content in a home theater, especially movies (content selection growing every month) feeds a DLP projector (1080p) and surround audio to Yamaha AV Receiver. Without debating the merits of the PC vs. Mac “experience” (for which some obviously will pay a substantial premium) – personally performed feature for feature spreadsheet comparison to 15-inch MacBook Pro – cost of Mac is 270 % what I paid for this unit from Newegg. You decide if the “Mac” experience is worth $1,200 more of your hard-earned dollars (the difference alone can purchase a relatively good – non-Videophile - front projector). I have no complaints.

Cons: Battery life limited - not an issue for my use - but for many it may be.

Overall Review: For home theater application (or simple connection to external AVR): for running external surround audio – the front headphone jack (first of three on left side - black) accepts a newer mini-TOSLINK (optical digital audio) plug. It is the same as the standard optical (light) audio TOSLINK connection, as it passes light and not electric current – but mini. Jack requires a simple adapter for only a few dollars online; or an entire cable (with standard on one end, and mini on the other) for ten +/- dollars. Do not waste time or money at brick & mortar stores on overpriced adapters or cabling (none in this location ever heard of, let alone carry, the above-described cable/adapter anyway).
