More about laptop feedback
  1. looks pretty good to me specs-wise and price-wise. :)
  2. Sounds good, what about it's gaming ability?
  3. It will be decent for a laptop, about the level of a GTX 560m.
  4. the 650m can play battlefield 3 at 1366x768 resolution at about high settings, lower demanding games can probably max.
  5. Utilizing the 9 cell battery, and windows "Power Saver" option, how much battery life can I achieve on a full charge? Of course I won't be gaming in this mode, this is simply for when I'm at school.
  6. My 6 cell batt laptop, with all those power-saving options, would last me up to 2-3 hours per full charge. You should be able to achieve more than 4 hours easily, especially since newer gen tech are more power-efficient.
