ConsSome flimsy keys

Ah, the humble laptop. Before this I have never really owned one, I always seemed to think that they were a bit too expensive for just a walk-about bring my files and edit them here type of gadget (when a USB and semi-up to date mobile phone can suffice) and somewhat pointless for a gaming device...

After about 18 months the battery needs to be replaced and probably about once a day it needs to be...
