"Good machine with some shortfalls."4.0 starson by kgross
Pros: Good screen, touchpad and keyboard. Blu-ray drive. Decent processor, memory, hard drive and graphics. Good wireless. HDMI output. Decent sound for a laptop. Neat color.
Cons: Not a 1080p screen. Mediocre battery life - seems to lose charge even when off.
Summary: I really like this machine, but wish that battery life was better. It doesn't have quite enough to watch a full movie on battery except from a fresh full charge. I don't know why it seems to discharge so rapidly even when turned off. Still, for the money it was one of the best available.
