i would buy it.

But i don't trust LG for notebooks.

But you cant find an HP, Acer, Gateway, with better specs for the price.

I didn't even know LG made notebooks. I'd try to find some reviews on this or other LG lappys before buying it. If it seems to be dependable and well built I'd say it's a good deal.

It would really depend on the price, from the specs it looks pretty good. But if money's no object - go for an alienware notebook!! You'll be soo cool~!
