Excerpt: I needed a durable, somewhat lightweight laptop for general use at an affordable price. I got this computer at $400 about 1year ago. This model, however, is crica 2007/2008 high end business laptop. I will start with the Pros: 1) excellent screen resolution. 1440 X 900 looks great on this 14.1" screen. I cannot go back to those 1366 X 768 screens anymore. 2) Fast enought for general use and HD video (ie on youtube or netflix).
Summary: Worked fine for 6 weeks and then when Windows 7 tried to update, everything went wrong. Windows could not update itself and then we started getting Blue Screens. Tried disk and memory check and nothing. Ran SFC and it said it could not fix things. Machine is getting worse and worse. I asked Microsoft on a forum and they said it could be disk problems or may be a bad install. Disk check ran overnight and did not find any problems.
