the machine is crap. total crap. dont buy it, just trust me on this one. I CANT EVEN PLAY QUAKE3 ON IT! heres why: the cpu downclocks within 15 to 20 minutes due to some weird heat issue, wich seems to be VERY common among this model and similar acer notebooks. gaming notebook? BULLSHIT! its good for reading news online tough!

The intent though admirable, what we need to see is how aggressively is it priced and not to mention the most important battery life. Would also like to comment if Acer has patched up its heat issues wit hrelation to its laptop which tends to get really hot in a short while compared to let's say Toshiba.
