"you get what you pay for"4.5 starson by computeruser5000
Pros: extremely fast processor
500 gb hard drive (optional)
graphics card can handle pretty much any game, and well
camera (2mp) and microphone
HD+ (900p) screen very bright and clear
Cons: speakers sound hollow
battery life with 9cell battery is < 3 hours
media button backlighting + screen hinge lighting can't be turned off
extended battery sticks out (6cell doesn't,
heavy (about 5lbs)
surfaces collect smudge marks
Summary: You get what you pay for. The screen is excellent, the computer looks nice, and the backlit keys and leather strip are nice touches. The core i7, large hard drive, and quality graphics card make for a powerful computer but in exchange you pay in battery life, weight, and money.
All in all, I am extremely satisfied.
