This laptop I have had for over a year and I have not had any problems with it. As far as PC's go it is a pretty solid buy. It is an energy star rated product for energy concious users. It has an illuminated keyboard that makes typing easy in low light level situations. The 17 plus inch wide screen is good for browsing webpages and watching movies and video so all your shows will look great on Hulu. It has fast graphics and processing so it matches the loading speed that you expect and need for most common uses. I don't recommend this laptop for advanced use but for everyday use it is perfectly fine. It is slim and has a nice look in black. The built in webcam works great for video chat/skype and is easy to use. One flaw that I have found with my laptop is that the battery can be easily jostled loose which can prevent it from charging. If you use you laptop on the go, this can be very unfortunate. Overall I am satisfied with this model.
