Problems discovered on my laptop:
- LCD backlight visible, on the right hand side (picture of it will be posted later)
- touch pad left button is too soft
- Overclocking even slightly crashes the 3dmark2k3
- My burned DVD backup CD will not play, drive makes weird noises
Something you will have to live with:
- Speaker sound is loud enough, but don't expect much from them
- Not very overclockable
- When playing games it gets very hot, but it's expected
- Bad design to have fan blowing from the right hand side. Your hand gets hot when you use external mouse
- Thin & Light portable gaming rig. Able to play Far Cry smoothly at 1280x1024 w/ med settings on (anyone know how to activate FPS?)
- Very little noise, even when the fan kicks in when gaming. DVD drive is noise but it's expected
- Excellent build quality
- Looks a lot better in person then from the pictures I've seen
- Benchmark 3dMark2k4 at stock speed is 2750
- Keyboard feels nice, but I don't have another laptop to compare it to. I am used to typing on a natural keyboard, but I don't have any problems typing on this one either.
- Battery life when gaming and everything on max (estimate at 2 hours; tested UT2k4, played for 30 mins and battery life dropped to 75% )
- Battery life after heavy browsing internet, downloading (estimate at about 4-5 hours; in 15 mins, battery dropped by 5%)
NOTE: I am running at full power right now with external mouse plugged in.
Final thoughts (will be updated)
Ok, it doesn't perform as good as overclocked AMD64 w/ 9600 Pro, but battery life and size are way better. I am definetly not happy with LCD problem, so if I decide to keep it I will have to RMA for another one. So by Friday I will make final decision if I should keep it or not.
