It is paired with a regular 4GB DDR3 RAM which operates at 1600MHz and can be expanded up to 8GB with the help of 1 unused DIMM slot. The dedicated AMD Radeon R2 graphics processor ensures that the laptop performs well in games with intensive graphics and also during audio and video editing sessions. The new laptop sails on the latest 64-bit Windows 8.1.

To make the device entertainment friendly, it comes with two good quality stereo speakers running on the Waves MaxxAudio technology to make you groove to its beats.

The 4 Cell Li-Ion battery included in the laptop keeps the show running for 3 hours. On the connectivity front the laptop ropes in options like Ethernet, Wireless LAN 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, two USB 2.0 slots, one USB 3.0 slot, one HDMI port and Digital Media Reader.
The decent configuration, sufficient hard disk space along with a dedicated graphic processor and an impressive display makes this laptop a good buy. The processor could be a bit better but considering the price it looks okay.
