Amazing craftsmanship

Acer Laptop Aspire Intel Core i7 2nd Gen 2670QM (2.20GHz) 6GB Memory 750GB HDD AMD Radeon HD 6650M 17.3" Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit AS7750G-9411

Pros: This is my third laptop in the last 6 years and I have to say it's my favorite by far. Solid material. Keys are nicely raised and easy to press. The keyboard layout is extremely comfortable. The overall quality of the laptop feels extremely well-made. Speakers are great for a laptop. Sound is clear and full. Bloatware was a cinch to remove. It was extremely obvious what the necessary programs(like touchpad drivers) vs unnecessary ones were. It has a modern i7 and a dedicated graphics card for games. It's an extremely good value if you like to occasionally play games on the road. But I wouldn't make it my main gaming system. That said, the graphics card can handle low-intense games like LoL and WoW on high settings, and it even plays Skyrim on medium settings with no hiccups or extreme heat while still looking beautiful.

Cons: The touch pad is slightly too big. Sometimes when typing my palm will stroke it and click my mouse, moving my cursor away from my text box. But I think this is just going to train me to keep my hands raised off the laptop and will eventually be a good thing.

Overall Review: I looked as hard as I could and couldn't find a better value laptop than this. If you do plan to play games with it, I'd shell out an extra $20 and get a nice laptop cooling pad.

Love this thing

AMD A8-3870K Unlocked - A-Series APU (CPU + GPU) Llano Quad-Core 3.0 GHz Socket FM1 100W AMD Radeon HD 6550D Desktop APU (CPU + GPU) with DirectX 11 Graphic - AD3870WNGXBOX

Pros: It works and it was cheap. I like it because it handles games way better than I expected integrated graphics could in this day and age. Heat sink is very quiet.

Cons: Not my first choice for OCing.

Overall Review: Great for budget builds that don't need top of the line, but still want mid-level performance.
