Superb low costing general use laptop $400,
Just thought I shared this with everyone.

For $400 you get...

A solid brushed aluminum chassis
Decent processor (Intel Core i3-2370M 2.4 GHz + Hyperthreading)
Thin, .89"-1.18"
USB 3.0
Great 8 hour battery life

Wow nice. I would totally get this for the girlfriends kid if we didn't just move. She needs a computer for school and I refuse to share my laptop. ;-)

RE: Superb low costing general use laptop $400,
Yea, the only thing I can sort of complain about is that its actually pretty heavy considering the size and thickness of the laptop.

RE: Superb low costing general use laptop $400,
The chassis itself is plastic, only the top of it is covered by an aluminum layer. It lacks a 2nd memory stick, so you take a small (~5%) performance hit from the lack of dual-channel RAM. It's so heavy partly due to the huge battery Tongue

It is an amazing laptop for the price though.

Way to ruin the mood...Tongue Anyways one more thing to look out for is that the battery is non-removable.

Just saw the keyboard: Why the heck did they combine the |\ key with the Enter key?!
