  1. Mine has a 370M i3 first generation Intel processor, which I purchased for a good price. I suppose it is what you call a g6t model, having the 370M first generation i3 processor.
    Seems to work OK, but nothing too special. It runs very cool. Eventually I was able to set up good quality sound using headphones, but the Altec-Lansing speakers are very tinny sounding.
    This laptop benefited very well from a Windows 7 feature called Ready Boost. I put a 4gb SD card into the card slot and configured it for Ready Boost. Very fast now, almost like jumping from 4gb RAM, to 8gb, all for the cost of an SD card!

    Battery life is around 3 hours but my research has indicated 4 hours with the 2’nd generation i3 models. So for this reason I recommend getting the newer g6s models instead. And hopefully they fixed the lousy speakers.
