Well, i have to say, this isn't a bad product. Had this for about a week, and no major problems. Its got very fast startup, textured touchpad, nice speakers. Battery life isn't as great as you would think. Bout two hours on "High Performance." All i don't like is the finish, its a silverish black, leaves alot of visible fingerprints. But otherwise, good laptop for the money. And if you want to do some small scale gaming on it with steam, i think i wouldn't want to run anything with higher requirements than Deus Ex.
