Summary: I needed a laptop that still lets you play Cd's which is how I settled on this particular model. That and the ratings. This is my fourth laptop in 19 years and I was hesitant on getting a less-than-well-know brand. I have had mine a few weeks now and have no complaints other than a minor one-The touch pad is left of center which I find strange. Good for lefties, I guess. It doesn't come with a bunch of junk software. The McAfee trial is pointless.
Summary: If you are looking for a easy to set up and easy to use than this is the one to get. I got a brand new one so I did not have any problums with it starting or the battery not changing up. I check a lot of diffrent models and is was the best one at a geat price.
