Great laptop


Bought this as a present and it's a great laptop, for the price. It does everything you want it to. Battery life is OK, but all laptops are the same. I'd defo recommend it.

really good for academic work


Large enough to be able to read your work and other items, also light enough to be on your lap for a good while.
