"Good desktop replacement, and very portable considdering size"4.5 starson by 88gdawg
Pros: Good battery life, good screen (1440x900), light weight for size.
Cons: a bit bulky to carry around
Summary: I have had my 9200 for around six months, has served me very well and done everything I asked of it, be it complex Matlab work or encoding of DVD´s or unreal tournament 2004, which runs very fast! My spec is as follows 1.7 Ghz, 1 Gb ram 80 Gb Hard drive, ATi Radeon 9700 128 mb and a bluetooth antenna.
Battery life has been a nice surprice, on average runs for more than 3 hours, even when burning DVD´s. Only down side I could find was that it is a bit bulky, but that is to be expected for a laptop with a 17" screen. But having said that it is very light for its size.
I did contemplate to get the higher resolution screen but after testing it decided on the 1440x900 resolution.
I would recomend the 9200/9300 to anyone looking for a large size screen laptop.
