Good: Exelent laptop in every way
Bad: graphics card could be better or a chance to update it
Comment: @Kohryu i have one of these and i can play most of the big games on med-low graphics. i have skyrum and it plays exelent on med graphics with desent fps.
it isnt ment to be a gaming pc but it has played everything but 1 of the newest games i chucked at it and played them well
i would suggest this laptop for anyone who wants to have a desent laptop and not pay a lot of money.
Bad: it's not equip with dedicated vga, so can't play well decent game like skyrim (avoid intel graphic at any cost)
Comment: don't buy it, you just waste your money, there's still good laptop from ASUS such K55DR or N56VZ.
Comment: goood lapy good pric vry nic n vry slime
Good: I find the screen to be very clear, boot up is quick and I also have the i3, but I installed 8 gigs of RAM.
Bad: It's big, wish I had ordered something a bit smaller. Had a netbook (what a terrible idea that was) so I probably went big as a knee jerk reaction.
Comment: I'm impressed with the speed of the i3. I installed 2 4 gig sticks before I even booted it up. Mine has bluetooth so I connected the mouse I had from the netbook (had to buy a bluetooth dongle for the netbook). I do wonder if a solid state drive would improve performance over the 5400 RPM drive that came with it. I have a problem with constantly modding my computers. I have a monster inside the case of an old emachine that came with a 566 Celeron. Has a Pentium III @ 1.3 GH and more ram than you can shake a stick at plus Nvidea Graphics card and 2 monitors for photo editing and video editing. Hope a thief never figures that out.
Good: cheap, fast, reasonably powerful for a i3, looks great and more expensive than it was,
Bad: nothing just wish i had got the i7 for that extra boost
Comment: for such a low spec machine mines the k53e with i3 2.2ghz but came with usb 3.0 ,4gb ram 500gb hdd and its midnight blue in colour so is much nicer than the one reviewed here
