Comment: May be the heating problem as associated with most of the AMD PCs
Good: Graphics And Processor
Bad: Windows 7 64-bit
Comment: This is a very good pc - it is perfect for heavy gaming and has a very nice design. However, this pc has Windows 7 64 bit with no option on downgrading to Windows 7 32 bit which is a shame as users cannot use programs and devices that have 32 bit drivers.
Good: Slim, light and powerful
Bad: Short battery life
Comment: I own this model and feel pretty satisfied with it. There are some major differences though, that I cannot find on the web. Surprisingly my HDD is 640gb against the 320 on the general specs and my graphics card is also superior, is ATI Mobile Radeon HD 5650 and not the 5450(?) specified. So I might have picked up a wrong model or they upgraded it without notice. It's a good laptop for my work, games and full HD videos.
