    Just looking for an opinion on whether i should jump on this deal. I need the laptop for school, browsing and some light gaming. Just need to know if this is a good buy. The only thing I'm worried about is no dedicated graphics but I don't game that much so its not a huge deal.
    Thanks for the opinions.

    This is a very good deal. You are getting a good IGP for such a low price. You can play a few games on it on low settings. If your budget was around this price, then go for it. But I would also like you to have a hands-on if possible to check the screen and the build.

    Ya it's just an offer from best buy so they should have it in stock. The site is saying up to 5 hours of battery life. What do you think I'm really looking at?

    4 hours and a bit more if you judicious with your usage. I would simply chop 20% off of what ever run-times are mentioned. Most manufacturers quote time tested in "standard conditions".

    Ya I was thinking something like that. Well I'm not sure I can pass up this deal because I need a new laptop and all the pieces seem to fit.
