I was wondering if this was a good notebook at about 1398 canadian. There haven't been many reviews on it since is a bit new. Also, is now a good time to buy a notebook? or would ibe better to wait till august or july? And if I do get it now, would it's specs last me a good 2 years?

Thanx in advance.

Erm, we can't view it. I'll link the ASUS one.

Personally, I think it's worth it. An intergrated camera, a touchpad that can be a calculator and some good specs in it. Worth it.

i agree, its not going to be too much more, but for gaming on vista you'll need 2gigs, i have it on my e510, and just on the desktop i use 50% of 1gig and none is shared with video, which none will be on yours, but if you want good game performance, 2gigs is the way to go

well will it be hard to add a gig later on if i need it? i won't be gaming hardcore on this. I was planning to add a gig of ram maybe 1 year in. But apart from the 1gb ram, its good right?

u can get better. the graphics card and processor is not good enuff for 1398 canadian. u can get an asus a8. btr cpu and btr graphics too.

but the screen is 14 inch. do u need a lot of portability?

forget it. go for it. i cant find it on tigerdirect. but there is on newegg. perhaps a relative can help u pick it up?

Well, I'm now a proud owner of this notebook. Surprisingly, they added a free gig of ram and the price was 1350 canadian.

That means its 2gb ram plus the specs listed above, all for the price of 1350 + tax. Yayyy!
