I have one it does have a inbuilt mic and web cam runs most games ok you might need to upgrade the memory if you need more video memory it is only set to 156mb when you get it with out upgrading you can set it to 256mb and like it says if you upgrade the memory you can set it to 893mb just keep in mind that the video memory and windows 7 uses the memory the nice thing is that this laptop holds up to 8gb of ddr3 memory and battery only last about 2 hours when gaming over all a really good buy I have had it for over 3 months now and love it
this laptop is amazing i got it for 260 at walmart last one they had and i absolutely love it it has a full keyboard and windows 7 mine came with microsoft office 2010 already installed(: amazing laptop
Very nice computer. Ready for skype and everything is already there. Battery life is close to 3hrs. For 298, ibought it on a snap decision and have no regrets. I run 3 sites with it and see very little as far as lag in performance
does anyone know if the sims 3 will work on it?
i got one the other day for school. i like how it has the 10 key for math and overall for 300$ they pout alot more into it then i would think they would. i havent tested the battery life because its always plugged in, but ill be testing it alot here in a couple weeks. Also, it connected to my wireless before windows was even up and running. which was pretty cool.
People who tested out this laptop..can they give a detailed review on performance..and does it have a built in mic?
i bought one this week and it is pretty fast and get decent battery life. what i also noticed was that there are actually 3 usb ports, when this site says there are 2. i really like the led hd screen for videos. overall, i am pretty excited and glad that i got this computer, especially for $340.08 with tax and recycling fees included.
i get around 3 hours on mine with the screen brightness turned down.
Has anyone tested battery life on this one?
