Very good user reviews on TigerDirect
Sufficient processing power for multi-tasking, internet, music, movies, productivity(Word, Spreadsheets, etc), basic photo and video editing
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. Higer power consumption, lower shock resistance and longer startup time compared to solid state drive(SSD).
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 5.5 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 may not be sufficient for computation intensive tasks such as simultaneous editing of large number of photos and videos, virtualization software(parallels), file and harddrive encryption, etc
