I've had this laptop for over a year now (A year and a half) and have encountered no significant problems whatsoever. Let me just fill in some detail here:

I use this laptop for around 5 hours (usually more) every day. That's a lot of usage for a year and a half. I have gotten chocolate in the motherboard, cracked the plastic surrounding the screen in the bottom left corner so that it won't close properly (Quite hard to explain), and I have hoovered up exactly 6 keys from the keyboard while trying to clear it out.

I run multiple programs (Firefox - 15 tabs, uTorrent, WinSCP, Mirc UPP, Windows Live messenger, NOD32, KeyScrambler, and Magic Disk is what I am running at the moment, while typing this review on the same laptop).

I think this is fairly amazing for a 'budget' laptop. It's extreme reliability by far makes up for the not exactly high speed processor or the lack of RAM. The screen isn't that big either, but what are you expecting? For me, this has done its job perfectly and carried it out with a little bit of flair.

I have encountered no crippling problems, but one issue I'd like to point out is the huge heat this laptop produces. The exhaust output is hot enough that you cannot have your hand in the way for more than 5 seconds. However, I'm sure this problem can be solved easily with a laptop cooling pad, although I have yet to try one.

I really enjoy using this laptop and feel it is exceedingly good for the money.
