    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
    Memory sufficient for multi-tasking, internet, music, movies, productivity(Word, Spreadsheets, etc), basic photo and video editing
    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 5.8 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

I've had my laptop for about 6 months now and it's proven to be a very great investment. I purchased my product for under $500. I ended up with a great machine for my needs.

The price is good for intel i 5, 4 G, 500 GB, 15.6" laptop. A little thicker than I imagined but I'm glad that it was not that heavy. I love the win 8 system....

Got everything I said I would.Runs okay has all the applications I need, which includes Bluetooth etc.Loving so far....
