Powerful multimedia package
Overall User Rating (3.9 Out of 5 based on 40 ratings)
Overall: I have the older version of this laptop (SVF15218, same specs except for a 3rd gen i5 processor), and I have to say, I'm thoroughly impressed with it.
1. Runs almost every current gen game at medium to high settings without fps drops or any heating issues whatsoever.
2. Great battery life: Upto 4 hours of lightweight work, 2-3 hours of multimedia applications/video playback (depending on whether you're using headphones or speakers), and 1-1.5 hours of heavy gaming. I played Crysis 2 for almost an hour on high graphics, without charger and barely noticed any lag,
3. Sound quality is awesome for a laptop, although the sub-woofer doesn't make it's presence felt.
4. Lightweight and highly portable for a 15 inch laptop.
5. Decent build quality (even though it's all plastic), and killer looks.
6. Smooth mouse-pad, but it's buttons take some getting used to.
1. I mentioned it runs "almost" every game, not all: Some games will require a ram upgrade before you can play them, e.g. Call of Duty Ghosts, needs 6 gbs of ram.
2. It's wifi adapter isn't very strong. Connections get unreliable if the router is more than a room away (considering a cheap single antenna router).
3. Key board has less travel - the keys don't go deep enough when pressed. Gamers may want to purchase an external keyboard or game-pad.
Other than these 3 cons, it's an awesome laptop with a great graphics card (Don't go by the fact that it's only 1 GB, it's benchmarks are pretty high, and it's way better than the ones on other laptops at this price range).
