Summary: I've only had this two weeks so far, but it's great. I like the look of it - blue cover, sleek black keyboard. I've always complained about typing on other laptops and having my hand inadvertently roll over the touchpad and erase what I was writing - this computer has a button that turns the pad off while writing, if desired. Battery life is good, it's quiet and easy to carry. The 15.6" monitor size is nice but it does make the computer wider than you think.
