    Wuggee Notes
    Sufficient processing power for multi-tasking, internet, music, movies, productivity(Word, Spreadsheets, etc), basic photo and video editing
    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).
    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
    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
    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
