Summary: I've had this laptop since 2009. It's still going strong and is mostly in good condition, apart from the mouse pad, now I have never had any problems with it, it's decent, but the glossy paint that it's coated in has over time worn off to a blackish colour, just wear and tear I guess.
Pros: Wide screen, looks good, and is very fast.
Cons: Can get very hot, poor graphics card for gaming and keyboard
Summary: I have the one with 500gb hdd and 4 gb of ram which has now also died on me after 20 months .But up until then I have not had two many problems other than mouse pad placement when typing.It was fast and smooth running and is a good cheap laptop which can also be it's downfall .
Summary: I've owned this machine for nearly 2 years and every 10 months or so the hard drive has a catastrophic failure do to overheating, i have tried many techniques to keep it cool, but it gets hot very quickly.
Summary: I've had this laptop for over a year now and I've had so much problems with it! First the battery life does not last for 3 Hours! as soon as I stop charging it like 10minutes after I get a notification saying "Battery Low"!
Summary: Look wise there is no change in 5536. Its almost same as 6530. The 5536 has a full-size keyboard with a separate numeric keypad. The low-profile keys are similar to the 'chiclet' style favored by Apple and Sony.
Summary: This computer is satisfyingly fast, very light, and has a good keyboard. The most annoying thing for me is a fault in the making of the product. After you have used the keyboard, there is a slight delay before you can use the mouse. This is incredibly aggravating.
Summary: I ummmed and arrred about a new laptop as I've always bought second hand, usually from ebay. But I thought it was time to take the plunge and am really glad I did. This is a lovely laptop, with enough memory to deal with Vista, but even better with W7, which I installed immediately upon purchase.
Summary: I have one of these. It's pretty, powerful for the price and has a very nice screen. Mine came with Vista and a then-optional upgrade to Windows 7. Vista is appallingly slow - if that's what yours ships with, ditch it as soon as you can.
