Disadvantages: EBay or Auction site purchase, long replaced by far more modern alternatives, some minor issues.

When I first became a student living away from home and studying courses at university, it was just at an age where maybe one out of 300 students was lucky enough to have a large sized business laptop computer. This seems a bit strange given that all stud ... Read review
