Anyone that wants a laptop for less then $1500 and performance that will keep up with the rapid growth of digital media and 64bit performance will have to look at this system. I honestly had a hard time finding negative comments on this system, the vast majority of customers had no problems with windows 7 file and settings transfer, or anything else.
Here are some customers comments on what they liked about the X500:
- Ease of installation, software package is free of junk and promotions
- Graphic quality are intense and true HD
- Audio is crystal clear and built-in speakers are great for movies and games
- Blue-ray drive and fans are quiet and they don’t take away from media experience
- Webcam has good picture quality and great software support
- Great overall system with everything you need for work, school, or entertainment at an even better price then most systems with all of these features
And here are a few negative points from customers of the x500:
- the 18.4″ screen really burns through the battery when your not plugged in; you do need to turn down the brightness and enable energy-saver modes
- due to the large screen and battery, this system weighs more then systems that perform this well
- some customers did not like the red trim and lack of customization to the appearance of the laptop
When your updating your software for the first time be sure to choose either windows internet security, the free-trail software included, or whatever software you prefer. Installing multiple spyware and virus monitoring systems will not make your system more safe, and will probably cause some problems when setting up networks, and some hosting issues. There are less expensive laptops out there that will let you experience HD gaming and video, but if your looking to master games like World of Warcraft and raise your rankings in Call of Duty Black-ops then you need this system to take you to the next level. Processor speed, memory utilization, and software support all come together in this machine, and its sure to be a top-rated customer pick for a long time to come.
