Wuggee Notes
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
Uses conventional harddrive. Higher power consumption, lower shock resistance and longer startup time compared to solid state drive(SSD).
Battery life is unknown.
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 4.6 lbs is lighter than average 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
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
