Pros: I like most everything about this notebook. The performance of the Fusion C-50 is impressive for being only 1.0GHz. The HD 6250 video is amazing. I was able to play Counter Strike: Source comfortably at 1280 x 720 and got Just Cause 2 to run decently with lowest settings/resolution. Very attractive overall look and feel. The design is comfortable and simplistic.
Cons: Lots of bloatware, not the fastest/largest hard drive, and the mono speaker idea seems kinda lame (though the more I think about it, laptop speakers always suck anyway and I can always plug in speakers/headphones).
Overall Review: The CPU speed is somewhat a bottleneck, but for the price you really cant beat the performance this thing offers, especailly for gaming.
Small, full featured motherboard
Pros: -mATX -SATA III -USB 3.0 -Lots of on-board connectors and features -Surprisingly full featured BIOS
Cons: -Older 760g chipset -Only 2 memory slots -CPU fan speed does not change automatically based on CPU temp, you have to configure the CPU fan for how much power to use and at what temp.
Overall Review: I was able to successfully configure the CPU fan, unlike some of the other reviewers, so the fan stays quiet and speeds up when it has to.
