unusually heavy for a laptop, actually makes transporting it more difficult

limited memory capacity means more HD access, less battery life

LED display is too bright at first, needs to be turned down when typing up documents for a few hours to avoid eye strain

It however maintains a third-party ATI Mobility graphics module and, more importantly, high-definition audio with an Azalia audio chip that supports 3D sound effects. The display is still 14.4” backlit LED, but the webcam has been upgraded to VGA. Additional features include Draft N Wireless, Gigabit LAN, and VGA/HDMI connectivity.
