NIce and light, fast start with a very good battery life (compaired to my 5yr old Toshiba) does just about everything you would want from a laptop without costing a fortune.

Nothing to think of.

First off I would like to comment on the excellent battery life of this laptop; using just Microsoft Word, I can easily get 7 hours, usually just over 5 for general internet browsing and music and 2 hours for playing games such as the Sims 3, etc. The...

Can be loud when reading CD/DVDs and on my particular laptop it makes a rattling sound inside when typing or tapping on the right hand side, near the CD drive, though this is a very minor issue.

Good overall processor speed for an intel i5. graphic card not the best in the world for gaming but, can handle day to day things like Photoshop and Google sketch up modelling with no lag in performance.

Not good for graphics heavy video gaming or large 3d modelling with lots of polygons.

Everything to be honest, it performs like a dream, battery life is excellent, hours and hours. i5 performs beautifully with massive disk space as well.

The only downside is that the shiny outside shows fingerprints, big deal! oh and the ham-fisted oaf using the keyboard!
