I am currently borrowing this laptop as my HP laptop has been in repair for almost a month now and I have had a good oppertunity to get to know the laptop.

First off, the weight, only 1.75kg. Very easy to carry around and the Core 2 Duo T9400 (around 2.53Ghz) makes life very easy when using the laptop for watching movies and even playing a few games while on the move.

It feels very solid, no complaints about the keyboard or touch pad. However it orginally came with Windows Vista but it was upgraded to Windows XP which means less processing power is spent on the OS.

Battery life, active use watching movies, writing documents etc etc it can easily last up to 4hours. Most of all, it feels very sold the laptop, however i would not want to bash it around to find out.

Comes with automatic harddrive locking software which is tailored to retract the HDD drive when moved or while moving which protects the information on the disk.

I cannot comment on the support or need for using the manual, however the easy of use its very easy. Straight-forward if you have used any other laptop before.


Disadvantages:

Graphics card, Intel 4500M HD, not the greatest nor something you can brag about. However the laptop is not designed for hardcore gaming. However it makes an amazing business laptop in my opinion.

Cd-drive, it would be better without a cd-drive in my honest opinion because it would shave a lot of the weight off however some people may find the drive beneficial.


Overall: i would recommend this laptop to anyone who needs a fairly light and durable laptop when moving around a laptop. e.g. business meeting, going to school or travelling long distances.
