5 month follow up.11/5/2009 6:57:18 PM

Pros: It's a good computer, it's , blah blah blah see what I said below.

Cons: The white screen problem has been getting worse and worse for me, it happened seven times in 45 minutes just earlier today. Hitting the power switch and bringing it back from suspension works, but it comes with a lot of problems. I bought this laptop because it can run my games and you can ask anybody with a Valve product on PC that their games to not take kindly to being tabbed out of to repair the white screen. It's almost ruining this computer for me because it's apparently not a driver-related problem.

Overall Review: This laptop is top of the line excellent, except for a fatal flaw that completely ruins the experience.

Pros: It is great for the price, it's accurate, smooth, cheap, and solid. The DPI adjustment is awesome for a mouse this cheap.

Cons: Nothing, except it resets whenever you hold down mouse 1 and 2. I play a couple games that require that I do that pretty often, and I can't deal with having my mouse disconnect in the middle of it. If anybody knows how to stop it from doing that, please let me know.

Overall Review: Great mouse, just wish I could disable that function

Pros: Had it for some time now, and it's worked great. It's beautiful, all of my games run on the highest setting, and it's really quick. The HD looks great on any movie I watch on it. There is even enough room in front of the keyboard to put a mouse-pad, which is very nice for someone like me who can't stand touchpads.

Cons: The battery life is laughable, it lasts maybe 15-20 minutes when playing a game and maybe 2 hours at BEST on lowest power settings. I'm using it for school in the fall (overkill, right?) and I'm worried I won't be able to use it from class to class without having to scurry off and find an outlet. The keyboard also misses keystrokes sometimes, which gets really annoying when you type as fast as I do. Apparently you just need to remove one of the programs, as said in another review, to fix the problem, but I have not tried that.

Overall Review: Great laptop, and as my friends say: "Dude, that's just a portable desktop"
