This is a gaming laptop, and the one of the best parts about this notebook, is the fact that you can upgrade most of the parts in it. It has a secondary hard drive bay, so you can put another 250 gb hard drive, you can add more ram, and unlike most laptops, you can upgrade its processor from that crappy T5500 to a T9300.

Pros

  • Excellent specifications (great performance per dollar)
  • Very upgradable – access to components without a complete tear-down
  • Attractive and well-made
  • Highly targeted at the PC gamer (gets it mostly right)

Cons

  • Put aside some money for an eventual CPU upgrade
  • Poorly thought out disk image (too much bloatware)
