  • I have it, my only problem is with the graphics, pretty weak there…
    Also recommend downgrading to xp, it is posssible, just takes a bit of time getting the drivers.

  • pretty fast processors. but the battery life is like 10 minutes only! and the graphics are WEAK! i think this is not a good laptop for hardcore gamers.

  • I have this laptop. I purchased it for $300 from Aaron’s Rental Center as a pre-leased item. But, it was still in it’s original box with all packaging intact. They said the guy rented it for 1 week, then returned it saying he had decided to purchase a DELL instead. Thier rules required it to be sold as a previously used item even though it was still effectivly brand new.
    Now, as for my experience with it. I work as a custom auto painter, so the first thing i did was to paint the outer cover of mine in a deep candy red pearl. I did leave the metallic “C” in the center a natural silver. This updated the looks tremendously.
    As for the laptops function. It’s great for web browsing, and general use. Mine had the optional Light-scribe DVD/CD burner that prints the label directly on a disc. I find that while very handy, it is super slow to do. And, the special discs required are hard to find. I was able to locate a retailer who had them in a clearance bin “Office Depot” and was able to purchase five 100 disc spindles for just $5 ea. Thats enough to last me a lifetime. It can use regular discs as well, but you cant print the labels.
    The graphics are ok. It plays MS Flight Sim X with decent frame rates. But this isn’t a gaming laptop. Mine came with the ram upgraded to 2Gb… and I had a better Graphics card installed (cost-$149) to upgrade the graphics to 512Mb. I installed a faster,better hard drive myself that I bought at Tiger Direct.com.. the orig is 120Gb and 5200rpm. I replaced it with a 500Gb,7200rpm Seagate for $109
    I’ve had no issues with the laptop, or the battery. I get roughly 1hr use out of mine if using it to play games or websurf. I can get 2 1/2hrs use if I’m just watching a DVD or playing a music CD… Dunno why.
    Cons- Screen is delicate and can scratch easily. Daylight visibility is quite poor in bright light areas. Wifi range is greatly dependant on the direction the display is facing, as the antenna are imbedded in the display cover, and are highly directional.
    Which leads me to my next complaint… There is no provision for adding an external wifi antenna….nor is there a card slot for adding any other add on wifi card.
    Touch pad was designed for people with a delicate touch and small fingers… I wear a size 15 ring… so it is utterly useless for me to even attempt using it. But a usb micro mouse cures that easy enough.

    Overall… I have about $500-$600 invested in mine total. This includes the laptop, a better hard drive, a better graphics card, a cordless usb mouse, and a very nice travel case. I am very pleased with it, and how it has performed. I’ve had no problems or issues at all. It isn’t a gaming laptop, but it does make a great student or work laptop for everyday computing needs.
