This is no budget notebook: A Review of i5 Version

4 Jun 2012

If you have a three year old laptop that may run vista or even XP you should spend the < $500 to find out why you are very out of date. The obvious is Windows 7 blows the doors of XP and you can even dump most of the pricey anti-virus software and runs a simple free version.

The 10 key on the side pad is so nice to have, but the touch pad upgrade is what really makes this a step up. Double tap, drag, shrink, rotate, expand, 3 finger tap options! It’s awesome in comparison. Keypad is nice, touchpad very sensitive. 750gigaHD is huge, upgrade to Window Pro plus for less than 80 bones it brings inscription that is unbreakable to any or all drives, files. Twenty one dollars of RAM (crucial)for another 4 gig since it does run 64 bit. I wish Amazon included or linked to the correct 4gig ram chip add-on.

At a price like this you can afford the <$20 wireless mouse, the $21 extra RAM, the <$81 Window 7 upgrade, and even some office software if you need it.

Good bye, and good buy

I forgot, my 3 year old Gateway (I though was nice) now looks like a screaming hot portable heater, and this baby doesn’t even vent hot air and the palm rest is cool to the touch even after this review revision and 150 gigs of data transfer from the old one.
