Its very powerful. For games is not that good becuase of the integrated card but you can play most games at minimal and medium settings. The battery life is excellent ...I get about 4-5 hours with a 12 cell on lowest screen setting and with the portable/laptop settting. I dont like how it doesnt tell you how much time is left until battery dies....instead it tells you the percentage left. I hardly ever reach 100% cpu when i load up programs...i guess only when i encode video. It also looks cool, almost like a powerbook by apple, except it has a black top. The screen is glossy and its pretty bright....however, it has bad/average vertical angle viewing, horizontal is good thought. But yeah I love it, especially for the price.
