Excerpt: The R705 is an interesting notebook because of the power that comes with it's size and weight. I wouldn't have minded if it weighed a little more and was made of metal instead of the plastic. Or at least stronger plastic with better engineering.
Summary: The best thing is that it is as light as a netbook with all the features of a laptop - incl 14" screen. This can make the case/keyboard seem a little cheap/plastically but the trade off for weight is well worth it. Charges quickly and you can pretty much get a full day's on/off work out of it without re-charge. Super pleased with my purchase and would recommend to anyone.
Pros: Comfortable Keyboard, Fast, Lightweight, Long Battery Life, Quiet
Summary: This is a work computer and will allow me to work outside the office. I replaced a Dell Inspiron that is about 9 years old. It's been very reliable but is too heavy and slow.I was looking for something small and lightweight but powerful enough for serious computer useage. Important requirements for me were a large hard drive, gigabit ethernet, multicore processor, N wireless protocol.
