I can't remember how long I've had my Presario C700, but it came with me all through highschool, so it's definitely not new. And other than some wear on the touchpad, you might think it was. Of all the laptops I've used, it's gotta be my favorite. It's small enough to carry in a backpack, but still full-size. The keyboard isn't too sensitive, neither is the touchpad, and it has a handy little scroller thing on the touchpad that you can use to scroll down pages as opposed to click-and-dragging the scrollbar. It was cheap enough to pay for on my part-time job, though I can't remember how much it was exactly. I've seen a lot of reviews saying that it's a really fragile laptop, but I can't vouch for that at all. I bring mine with me everywhere a teenage girl would go, and I've never had any problems. Never had a key pop off, never broken any hardware. It's great. I have to say, really my only problem with this laptop is occasionally while typing I'll hit the touchpad with my palm and it'll click a random spot in the text. But that's just user error.
