  1. I just got one. It's a lightweight behemoth with all the power I need. Superior battery life and speed for this class of notebook makes it an awesome deal!

  2. I just picked up the AMD A6 Model for $329 at Best Buy. Very nice laptop at that price point. Seems to be well built, audio is decent for such an inexpensive machine. I have watched HD video over the LAN in my home with no stuttering.

  3. hi..Im student from Informatics engineering, this article is very informative, thanks for sharing :)

  4. I just bought mine at OfficeMax for $259.99...just before it went off sale.

    I really like it! I will be updating the RAM from the 4 GBs to 8 GBs, and the Hard Drive from 320 GBs to 1 TB. I found these components at: Crucial.com
