Wuggee Notes
Most powerful processor available
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 5.1 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
No integrated webcam; will need separate webcam purchase for video chat (or camera information unavailable)
Processor is more powerful than necessary for typical tasks such as multi-tasking, internet, music, movies, productivity(Word, Spreadsheets, etc), basic photo and video editing. Could downgrade to save money
