I bought this laptop one month ago. I have to say that it is beautiful; my hardware includes i3-380m processor, 4 Mb memory ram, 500 HDD, intel HD graphics. The performance does very well with multitasking. The battery lasts for about 3 hours 40 minutes with one task (for example, working with word).
You can listen music (by the way, the quality sound is amazing!), work with several open internet explorer sessions, word, ppoint, skype at the same time and you will not feel anything wrong. If you like games, I am playing brothers in arms: hell´s highway and the laptop deal with it without any trouble.
The only bad thing is that this laptop has 3 USB ports, but one of them is located on the back and I found this very uncomfortable. Nevertheless, I give 14R laptop five stars.
