Summary: If I were to design a computer, I would put the mouse pad above the keyboard.The price was very cheap ([$]) and I am grateful to own such a nice computer. I was able to download free software (open office, vic man's photo editor, windows movie maker (original version), audacity, avg, spybot, skype). I was also able to download free, beautiful icons and so my desktop has lovely shortcuts to my most used website.
Summary: I use my machine primarily fo photos and music. The dispaly is great once you get it at the right angle. It is powerful enough for running autocadd and photoshop. The keyboard layout is nice, but the mouse buttons are a little stiff. Loved it so much I had my parents get one for themselves and my niece.
Summary: I purchased from JR about a month ago, overall very happy with it. Does not include any DVD's you have to burn the three DVD's for the "Image" of the system. My own was received without actually having been sealed utilizing sysprep, so I let the sysprep reset the system and uninstalled all the bloatware. I like the ExpressGate very much, and the ability to get to Skype without having to launch windows.
Summary: Overall I am very happy with my purchase. the screen is great for pictures and the power is more than enough for when I use photoshop. I was pleasently surprised at how much lighter it felt than one I had looked at in a store.
Summary: The laptop is extremely smooth while running with Windows 7. Gaming is okay, only the battery life is not as promised (of course!). Cheap plastic? Not at all. From the brushed lid to the chiclet keyboard, it's actually rather impressive and has a more sophisticated appearance in terms of color and tone-one I haven't seen on any other, including a Mac.
