Wuggee Notes
Very good user reviews on Newegg, 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
Large amount of memory sufficient for memory intensive applications
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
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 might not be sufficient for ultra high requirements such as running simulations

I ordered this yesterday evening (shortly around 5pm) with 2 day shipping option and received it today around noon (faster than expected)!!! The laptop is just as described in the ad. I own an olderI have just gotten my Toshiba laptop and it is a beauty! I am a young tech guy and I have found my way around using windows 8 OS -- without reading any book! The product works fine except for the prodexcellent product, good price, good performance. It`s good to work or to play video games, the screen have a excellent size for all that i need to do. I'm confused of the win 8 system...And the keyboard is a little bit plastic style...Other aspects are all good.
