Wuggee Notes
Sufficient processing power 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).
Battery life is unknown.
Medium GPU allows playing most demanding games, but only at low detail settings and resolution, and less demanding games (WoW, Sims3, etc) at high settings and resolution
GPU is not suitable for latest, demanding games (Assassin's creed, Black Ops 2, etc) at high or medium detail settings and resolution
17.3" screen suitable as desktop replacement and gaming; not ideal for portability
Economy display with resolution of 1600 x 900; screen space sufficient for most purposes but less than ideal for graphics design, 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
No integrated webcam; will need separate webcam purchase for video chat (or camera information unavailable)
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
