Summary: works ok. noisy but i can live with that. thing i don't like: lack of "menu" button on keyboard - if you misspelled the word, you have to make a right mouse button click. lack of middle mouse button on the touch pad - to open and close tabs in browser. they did not put the button on the DVD drive, you MUST have their annoying software installed in order to eject the cd! i would rate in 4 stars, but my power socket just broke after 7 month.
