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
Solid state drive provides quick startup, silent operation, faster response compared to conventional harddrive
5 hrs battery life is better than average
Basic GPU allows playing less demanding games (WoW, Sims3, etc) at low detail settings and resolution
GPU is not suitable for demanding games (Assassin's creed, Black Ops 2,) even at lowest settings
15.6" screen provides good tradeoff between desktop replacement and portability
Weight of 5.1 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
Integrated webcam for video chatting
Processing power might not be sufficient for ultra high requirements such as running simulations
