Just a few observations why not.
First, da RAMz ~
System Memory (RAM): 4GB
System Memory (RAM) Expandable To: 8GB
If that means it's got one 4GB DIMM and room for another, that's sweet. If it means it's got 2 x 2GB and you gotta fully replace to upgrade, that's lousy.
Can't tell for sure but based on their wording I'd be miffed if it wasn't the former. Though by no means surprised if it's the latter. Did a quick Gwaggle, came up with bubkiss.
Next, da power ~
Battery Type: 8-Cell
Battery Life: Up to 6 hours and 33 minutes
Ha, 6.5 hours my Aunt Fanny. (Sorry to use your name in vain Aunt Fanny.) Not with a 2.53 proc, a 15.6" LCD and a spinnin' HDD. If you're going to actually do anything on it I'd count on considerably less time. 8-cells is pretty big but it's a honkin' laptop.
Speaking of which, 5.5lbs = Ultraportable?? Not exactly an industry standard term now is it.
And while we're on the subject of being a husky young refurb, 1366 x 768 rez is a deal breaker for me (on a 15.6" LCD). Even on a 14.1" I say 1440 x 900 is what's good. Different pixels for different folks.
No offense to teh Wootz. It's a capable machine, that's for sure, definitely my kinda unit from a power stand point. My lappie spends most of its time on my desktop hooked up to a bunch of distinctly desktop peripherals.
