Nice design, enough hard drive space for files, has wondows 7, doesn't have tons of extra apps and things that load automatically like other computer brands

Excellent computer for the price.


Great laptop for the price

Mainstream laptop. Fast and light. Great color. 4 GB RAM, international warranty and LED back light. New key board design. Quite when on, does not heat up and therefore no need of a laptop fan. Great computer

Wish it could be 13
