At 7.94-pounds and 1.6″ x 15.5 ” x 11.3″, the e1705 manages to house a 17-inch WXGA widescreen display. It boasts an Intel Yonah Core Duo T2500 (2.0GHz) CPU, 1GB of DDR2 RAM, ATI x1400 256MB graphics module, 8x CD/DVD burner (DVD+/-RW), and a 100GB SATA HDD. External interfaces include six USB 2.0 ports, RJ-45 Ethernet LAN, 5-in-1 memory card reader, FireWire port, S-Video, and DVI-D. Here’s what Notebook Review had to say:
For someone willing to spend an extra $500 or $1000, there are certainly other notebooks worth considering, but I would heartily recommend the e1705 to anyone who wants a higher-end 32-bit CPU, a big hard drive, decent graphics and a solidly built computer for what is really a very low price.
