Editors Didn't Like

  • Older More Modest Performing 3D Graphics, Display Lacks 1080p HD Video Support, Annoying Hard Drive Partitioning
  • We’d prefer a 1920x1080 screen; GPU isn’t great for new games; glossy black lid means smudges
  • Disappointing display, Gaming performance seems lackluster
  • Small battery yielded subpar battery life. Design is a big yawn. Resolution maxes out at 720p
