Summary: I have a couple very heavy laptops. This is not one of them. It has rendered the other laptops basically unfit for travel, because this one is only like 4 lbs, whereas the others are 9 and 15 lbs. This is a real back saver. And the performance isn't bad either.
Summary: I'm a sophomore in college and I needed a new laptop. This was honestly my second choice, the first was a touch screen HP. Overall this is a nice computer. But it DOES NOT have a CD drive, which may be a problem for some people. Luckily most software can be downloaded. And it is NOT touchscreen. I love the number pad it has and the screen is a great size. Perfect for class. By it being a 'sleek book' it is very thin and light weight.
