Tech is a way of life in our house. A constant flow of new gadgets comes with the territory with a “geek” husband and a blogger under the same roof. Between the two of us, I’m not even sure how many different laptops we’ve had over the past few years. Trying to find the perfect one that balances size, weight, performance and cost has always been a challenge. If you are a gamer too, the extra performance needed for today’s games can be an even greater challenge to find in a cost-effective laptop.
At only 1.2″ thick, it is a sleek computer, but does weigh about six pounds. Definitely not a computer you’ll want to carry around everyday if you are on the go a lot, but it is a trade-off when it comes to the extreme processing power this laptop is capable of. Besides if you are gaming from home, the weight won’t matter anyway – you might even prefer the solid machinery.
Available for $649, the laptop is full-featured with a 15.6″ TouchScreen display, 6 GB of memory, 750 GB hard drive, HD webcam, backlit keyboard (a personal must-have for me), and built-in speakers with subwoofer.
