This machine served as the home "laptop" and it's time to retire it. It's in a laptop form factor but due to it's size and weight I wouldn't want to carry it around an airport.

The machine was oriented towards the gaming/lan party crowd when it first came out although it won't compete with today's gaming machines.

That being said if you're looking for a decent machine to use as a server that won't take up a lot of space this will work well.

DAMN! right after I by my MSI netbook!!! paid 300 for it, then upped the ram (20.00) and bought a 9 cell batter (another 72 bucks) then an external usb powered CDRW/DVDRW for 70 more

The offshoot? all of this in a laptop bag weights about 4-5 pounds

Dude if I had the extra $$$$$ I would so jump on that

This machine is big physically. It's too big to travel with. It's a home machine.
