Summary: I bought this 16 months ago for my daughter who was going off to graduate school. Within a couple of weeks she was complaining that it ran very hot and had very poor battery life. A few weeks after that the hard drive began to make funny sounds and then the computer would not boot.

Summary: There are many positive reviews on this and the specs for the price are great. So here's my story... I received the N61jq-x1 and immediately there was a problem with the touchpad. The cursor on the screen would jump all over when I touched the pad. It made the computer almost completely unusable.
