Comment: I haven't had any battery problem for three years and its kind of natural that after three years I have. You there is no "battery issue" here.:)
Comment: I have been using my 5741 for three years with the same battery and the time has come to change it. This laptop is nice and performs well, but I suggest putting more ram into it. My pc came with preinstalled win7. Interestingly enough the HD graphics driver accelerator was not installed on it but I could manage downloading it from the net later to play Skyrim and Fifa Manager. The graphics is not the best, but in spite of the relatively small 2.13Ghz they run at least. All in all, its not a bad computer: quite reliable and looks good.
Good: Good performance, snappy and fast, fast HDD
Bad: battery disconnects alot
Comment: This laptop is simply awesome. It is fast, and is perfect for everyday use. In fact, there is only 1 flaw - the battery. The battery is simply awful, and keeps flashing alot. Other than that, its cool!
Good: Gets the job done. Reliable and does everything you need from a day to day computer either at home or on the go.
Bad: Battery life is not spectacular but I find I can use it for most things for a couple of hours and you are never really that far away from an outlet.
Comment: Great laptop for the price....I don't think there are many better.
