Wuggee Notes
Sufficient processing power for multi-tasking, internet, music, movies, productivity(Word, Spreadsheets, etc), advanced photo and video editing, 3D graphics, virtualization software(parallels), file and harddrive encryption
Large amount of memory sufficient for memory intensive applications
Uses conventional harddrive. Higher power consumption, lower shock resistance and longer startup time compared to solid state drive(SSD).
5 hrs battery life is better than average
15.6" screen provides good tradeoff between desktop replacement and portability
Weight of 5.3 lbs is typical for this screen size
Economy display with resolution of 1366 x 768; screen space sufficient for most purposes but less than ideal for graphics design, gaming, programming etc
Built in CD/DVD drive; allows watching movies and software installation from CD/DVD
No integrated webcam; will need separate webcam purchase for video chat (or camera information unavailable)
Processing power might not be sufficient for ultra high requirements such as running simulations
