Consumer review by:

"Very happy with mine!"

 

Big screen that is very clear and easy to read. This machine has been with me for about three years, and it is still going strong

Could use larger hard drive. Heavy to carry

Consumer review by:

"A good Laptop"

 

I've had this laptop for over 2 years now and I'm very happy with it. It's very reliable: speed, sound and display are very good

relativly heavy, speacially if you need to carry it around all the time
