9700 128MB Radeon
7200 RPM 60GB drive
I am comparing it to my HP nc6000 with 1.6 M and 64MB Radeon 9600 and 14inch screen.
Fit and finish the HP is superior.
Screen the G556 is brighter and of course larger, but 1 green dead pixel in middle
Yes the G556 grill is bendy.
Yes the fan is similar to a muffled hair-dryer on full blast. Similar to Inspiron 8200 on full blast if anyone remembers those... but it is silent when web...
