pretty good deal if you want a 17.3 inch screen. and therein lies the rub, most likely. not very portable for many, but good as an "around the house" desktop replacement. and of course it can travel so its good for work and presentations if need be. but in this age of tablets, netbooks, ultra portables, and just plain smaller laptops, i can't see lugging one of these around on a daily / regular basis
the specs look decent, however. in case anyone is wondering who has been out of the loop, the processor should perform on par with the old AMD Athlon64X2 6400+, or on the intel side of things the Intel Core2 X6800. of newer processors it's on par with the AMD A4-3400, and a bit further behind the first gen intel Core I3 330.
so it has a decent processor. cooling and all that, who knows? nice it comes with a 9 cell battery, and it has plenty of RAM and a big hard drive. could be the perfect HTPC for someone. fair deal imo, but not the only one out there for the savvy shopper
