This laptop has a great battery life. It has a discrete graphics card that you can dynamically disable or enable. Because of this you can play games with it. It is small and can be considered an ultra-portable, but is not a netbook. The laptop comes with a two year warranty with a one year accidental breakage warranty. There is not a lot of laptops that can compete with its features. The HDMI is nice. I can watch an entire move and still have greater than fifty percent battery left. This laptop uses a Core 2 duo. This is now about 2 generations old. While you can easily overclock the CPU in software, it is starting to show its age. The laptop also feels a little flimsy. When you pick up the laptop by a corner while the laptop is open, you feel like the weight of the laptop could actually break as the frame bends a little. I would actually buy this laptop again. I would recommend this for any college student as it will last you through multiple classes without the need to recharge.
