MULTIMEDIA POWERHOUSE NOTEBOOKS

The R80 series of notebooks are perfect for watching movies both at home and on the go with a built in Blu-ray optical drive.  Additionally, the nVIDIA GeForce graphics card included in the R580 and R780 will appeal to the gamer in any household.  The

sharpest images and boldest colors with a proper 16:9 aspect ratio.

networks.  With an HDMI output, these models are
perfect for college students or anyone who wants to play Blu-ray movies
or stream HD video directly to their TV.

Noreen, senior merchant at Best Buy, “especially for those customers

A NETBOOK THAT BLENDS DESIGN AND PERFORMANCE

With its scratch-resistant, polished pearl white design, non-glare display and nearly full-sized island keyboard, the

can be used for long periods, whether in the office or on the move.
