HEY EVERYONE!! Sorry I haven't been active on here recently, school has started back up and I have been occupied with that and other personal affairs...
So yea! Got that new laptop as I'm sure many of you are aware of, and may I say, it is AWESOME!! This laptop is powerful, stylish, up-to-date, responsive, and fun to use!
In case you forgot, my new laptop is an HP Pavilion g6-2228nr loaded with Windows 8 and native keyboard interface!Features and details:
Processor: AMD A6-440M APU with Radeon(tm) HD Graphics - 2.70GHz (Dual Core, upgradable to 3.2GHz)
Graphics Memory: 2029MB (2GB)
Installed memory: 4GB (3.46 usable, upgradable up to 8GB)
System type: 64-bit Operating System, Windows 8
Hard Drive Capacity: 320GB
SD Card Slot
Weight: 5.5 lbs.
Screen Resolution: 15.6", 1366x768
*Supposedly backlit keyboard
Sound quality is GREAT!
2 USB 3.0 ports and 1 USB 2.0 port
And I have gotton a good 3 1/2 hours of normal use out of this thing when unplugged, with heavy usage such as games and internet surfing, a good 2-3 hours!
Applications open quickly unlike any other computer I have owned, and games play amazingly!!!
VERY smooth graphics, hardly ever any lag, and when there is it is just a quick lag spike that lasts for a second or two at a time!!
Overall, this laptop is EXCEPTIONAL, especially for what was paid for it ($329.99), retail price is $450 so I had to get it!! The ONLY issue I've had with this computer:
Weak wifi reception! The first one of these laptops I got had a defective wireless card, internet randomly disconnected and said 'Limited' with a caution symbol on the wifi icon in the system tray. Replaced it for a different one, that issue has not happened BUT my room is several feet away from the modem and where I usually get 3-4 bars of internet, this computer gets me 1-3 bars, slower and sometimes disconnects because it cannot pick up the signal, but overall it is good....
FINALLY, a computer that will hopefully last me longer!! And I can enjoy it more while I have it!!By the way:
I felt much better once returning the other laptop to BestBuy, the employee I spoke to at the Customer Service desk said that he's seen that Toshiba laptop returned more than any other laptop, so I was glad I was not the only one with issues. This laptop on the other hand has served NO troubles so far, no crash, errors or anything of that nature!!
