This laptop features a dual AMD Turion 64 1.9ghz processor and 2gb of Ram which was one of the biggest draws to this product for me. There is a 160gb hard drive. It also has an ample ATI Radeon graphics cards which seems to be able to handle photos and videos great! I have attempted to run a '3D intensive' game however and unfortunately it did not play as well as I would expect from a desktop. The case is a nice shiny black colour and looks really smart. The screen is of ample size (15.4") and has a great resolution. When plugged in, the screen becomes slightly brighter (for powersaving I guess). The laptop comes with built in wireless and wired network adaptors so can quickly and easily be added to an existing network. I have found surfing times to be amazingly quick, even large searches in ebay appear almost instantly. The keys/keyboard do actually seem a little 'cheap' but the overall feel is more than acceptable. There are 4 USB ports (2 on left, 2 on right), SD memory card reader, 1 firewire port, S-video out, DVD-RW/CD-RW combi drive. All of these are located on the sides of the machine. It comes with Windows Vista pre-loaded and Norton protection centre. It also has MS Office installed. In general, I am pleased with the purchase of this laptop and would not of chose another!!
