ConsChip may come loose and cause a lot of problems.

So i was given this laptop free, as it was well near enough on cyber-death's doorstep.

I am Using this Laptop from last 2 year. it never created any problem for me. Battery timing is approximately 90 minutes. Web cam quality is very nice. I installed windows Vista 64bit on it and its performance was excellent. I found one problem in it some time its fans create noise when you start it but after some time it become calm. Some time it become overheated but never restarted. I will recommend every one to purchase this Laptop.

Poor battery power, freezes often and now after 18 months wont boot. I have checked online forums to try and resolve this but it appears to be a manufacturing hardware issue. In otherwords just a bad laptop to purchase.
