"No qualms whatsoever!"

This is an excellent all-round computer that can be used for more than just business use.

This is because its equipped with the latest Intel Core 2 Duo laptop processor that allows you to carry out your tasks quickly and efficiently. The 160 GB hard drive is a handy aid in achieving this and i would personally require more as i have a lot of games and songs to store, but then thats what a portable hard drive is for!

Look and feel

The 15.4 inch screen comes in two different styles, the anti-glare or HP Brightview displays. BrightView improves the brightness, contrast and clarity of your notebook's screen. The notebook itself is a stylish black machine that weighs only 2.49 kg to make it operate effectively as a wireless machine.

The optional DVD+/-RW SuperMulti DL LightScribe drive makes your storage media stand-out with custom labels that you can burn directly to your disc, and also lets you record or watch DVDs and play CDs.

It comes with genuine windows vista home edition and installation and ease of use are both perfect. I set it up within half an hour with no qualms. You get 1.6 to 2.2 Ghz of memory depending on which model processor you choose, but every one gets the job done and this machine can't go wrong.
