Where? I was just thinking of swapping this out for my similarly spec'd Lenovo G580 - which doesn't exactly have stellar reviews either
OS: Windows 7 Professional 64 bit
CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition (OC'd to 4.0 Ghz)
CPU COOLER: Thermaltake Water 2.0 Extreme
MOBO: Gigabyte GA-890FXA-UD5
GPU: Asus DirectCU II TOP Edition 7970
RAM: Corsair XMS3 8GB of DDR3 Dual Channel RAM @ 1333Mhz
CASE: NZXT Switch 810
PSU: OCZ ZX Series 850W Fully-Modular 80PLUS Gold
I totally agree zipdab, I think for a Toshiba with 3rd Gen i3, 640GB drive, 6GB memory, it's one hell of a deal for $305. I bought 2 of them, and there's a limit of 5 on the $50 EasyRebate. TU & Repped!
suprised this isn't getting more attention...seems like a decent deal for those of us that can't find the Lenovo at OD to PM due to it being OOS....
It's not bad at all. Only negatives (keeping price in mind):
Thick at 1.31"
Heavy at 5.4lbs.
Plastic shell is pretty cheap looking
Even with a 6 cell, battery life is only 4 hours. In real life, that probably means 2.5 hours with adequate brightness and balanced performance.
But the big plus is the CPU passmark is 3501. That's very solid at this price.
With tax, this comes out to just under $330. I picked up a used Samsung 5 series ultrabook on Cowboom for $20 more with a 2nd gen i5 and previous gen GPU. Love it, but it's not as fast as this, and when a battery dies in an ultrabook, it's either impossible to swap, or will run you $100+. I'd probably still buy the Samsung again because of the thickness, aluminum shell, and build quality.
But if you want something new with a warranty, and you don't need to carry it back and forth daily, this is a definite consideration. Just make sure to demo in store first. Track pad can make or break a laptop, and some of these entry level laptops can't get it right.
