The very first thing you notice when buying a laptop is how it looks, and this laptop is simply beautiful it is sleek and classy and in my opinion is much better looking than any other laptop in the same league (including mac books). the screen is crystal clear and very gentle on the eyes making it a joy to look at. when i was looking at laptops to buy this one jumped out as a high performance, fantastic looking, affordable laptop that seemed to incorporate everything you could want from a laptop. im yet to find any downfull and i can honestly say i dont think i will! if you are looking for a general purpose laptop that boasts high performance and good looks then this is for you. you get a lot for your money!! the intel i3 processor is very good it can handle anything! the touch mouse pad is very easy to use and very smooth, the side scroll bar is a bit difficult to get a hang of but you get used to it in time. the keys are comfortable and nice to use well layed out and everything in terms of the mouse and keys is well proportioned and easy to navigate.
i have the blue model which i really like but from what i have seen of the other colours they all look good its just personal preference. i often find myself stroking the top of it when its closed which is something you would only understand if you had one yourself its like when you have just shaved and you keep stroking your cheek, feels really nice. however i doubt many of you buy a laptop based on stroke ability! the usb slots are well placed with two on your right and one on the left, also on the left are the hdmi slot, headphones,microphone,power cable.
the cd drive is slightly flimsy i often feel im going to break it when putting a cd in but aside from that its good. the 1.3mp webcam is ok but very dependant on the light in the room anything other than bright light and it is very hard to make out detail but sufficient if you just want a quick skype call etc. the built in social network button on the keypad is a good idea but not very good in reality i personally dont use it, it just seems a bit pointless. it has some fantastic desktop backgrounds and themes which i like a lot.

Sorry but there is not enough information or opinion in this review. Leave a message in my guestbook if you update and I will return to re-rate.

This could have been written without ever using this product. Some specifics and personal opinion about what it is like to use would really help.
