    Wuggee Notes
    One of the top sellers on Newegg
    Very good user reviews on Amazon
    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).
    5 hrs battery life is better than average
    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
    15.6" screen provides good tradeoff between desktop replacement and portability
    Weight of 5.73 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
