The Presario A900 is a very weak computer. I am typing on it right now but it overheats so badly that I have to put a floor fan on it just to keep it from overheating and shutting off. Its slow and you won't get any customer support. Several problems come to my attention. Its awful for doing anything other than surfing the internet, so don't get any ideas about even doing older games on it. The screen is a nice size but is vastly not worth it since it will break after just a few months. The cord is placed in a bad place, you will constantly trip over it. Now I have to jiggle the cord for minutes at a time to get it to work again. Only to have the power stop working and shut off minutes later, since the battery life goes to crap a few months after ownership. The thumbpad is nice and smooth, and easy to handle but you will want to get a mouse anyway. Overall get another computer, I would recommend an asus but they suck too!
