matte screen, noiseless operation, decent keyboard, 2-year warrranty

no maintenance hatch

Great laptop, great price


" Wanted a laptop purely for surfing the Internet & editing & storing photos. This is still probably overkill for what I will be using it for. Good battery life is also a plus. Would definitely recommend. "
