    Wuggee Notes
    Very good user reviews on Amazon, Newegg
    Low-cost processor suitable for basic tasks such as internet, music, movies.
    Processor not suitable for multitasking, and computation intensive tasks such as advanced photo and video editing, etc.
    Memory may not be sufficient for simultaneous editing of large number of photos and videos, virtualization software(parallels), engineering and simulation software, etc
    Solid state drive provides quick startup, silent operation, faster response compared to conventional harddrive
    5 hrs battery life is better than average
    Medium GPU allows playing most demanding games, but only at low detail settings and resolution, and less demanding games (WoW, Sims3, etc) at high settings and resolution
    GPU is not suitable for latest, demanding games (Assassin's creed, Black Ops 2, etc) at high or medium detail settings and resolution
    11.6" screen suitable for portability; too small as desktop replacement or gaming
    No built-in CD/DVD drive; Reduces weight but watching movies or installing software from CD/DVD will require separate purchase of optical drive
    Integrated webcam for video chatting
