    What does webcam only mean? No mic? You might want to look for one that has a mic built in-- that's generally a standard feature on "good" laptops these days. It may have one, though.

    Generally, that seems just fine. I don't think it's necessarily the cheapest you'll find that, but it's a good computer and for a good price. You might find something like that for a hundred dollars less, or something, if you looked hard enough, wanted to wait on shipping, and all of that.

    Then again, I just looked through the specs quickly, based on what I've seen around.

    You might want to try it out in person, if you can, to see if you like how it feels-- shape, etc. That may be more important than anything else.

    Also, if you have anything in particular that might be stressful for it (lots of gaming, video editing, need a really long battery life), etc., then that might help your decision.

    Yes, this is a nice laptop with great price.

    Independent VGA graphic card make it outstanding from the onboard graphic card on most other laptops.

    Hugh 4GB fast speed RAM, and a high ended CPU, you are having a rocket laptop with affordable price.

    How many laptop needs 4GB RAM?
