"Money well spent, happy as can be :)"

The notebook has been trustworthy and fast, since purchase i have not noticed any major flaws. There are many options towards power saving and performance. I bought this notebook with Windows XP previously installed, i then got an option to express upgrade, i accepted and noticed slight lag in performance, but still fantastic worthy performance.
The laptop has a very stylish dark, solid look, it feels comfortable, to lean wrists upon. The screen has additional features making it more crystalline sharp than other LCD screens. I also keep referring to this as a laptop due to the conscious thought that notebooks are not as powerful as laptops. I do think that this was defiantly money well spent, I love the look, i love the feel and i enjoy using it everyday.
