Summary: I've had this laptop for over five years now and it's still kicking. I purchased it in April of 2009 for $600. I pretty much only use it now for video playback and it gets the job done quite nicely. The HDMI output is essential.
Summary: I have had this lap top for some time now and still works great. The only flaws are 1. the touch pad goes crazy sometimes towards where my mouse is all over the screen but only for a second. 2. The DVD player doesn't always work but I rarely use it so it doesn't bother me.
Summary: This was my first laptop, and I got it in 2008 (3rd grade)to share with my (6th grade) sister. It was great for the first three or four years that we had it, but then the webcam stopped working. This wasn't much of a problem, as we hardly ever used it, and an external webcam worked just fine.
Summary: I have had one of these for about 5 months, and other than a few problems, I love it. The screen's backlight adjustment could be a little better; below maximum, you have to deal with reflections and glare; at maximum, it'll hurt your eyes unless you lean back.
