I love this laptop. It has an extra large screen with great graphics. Being a computer tech and network admin, I traditionally use a desktop box that I build myself. I purchased this machine for a trip across country and I've used it exclusively for the last 16 months. Unless I start some serious gaming, I don't see myself needing anything else for quite some time. I have only 2 problems with this laptop. The placement of the audio input/output connectors on the front - my headphone cord gets in the way and I've almost broken it several times by accident. And the Quickplay button for starting movies is right next to the power button. Can't count how many times I've had to wait for machine to boot up and it goes directly to the quickplay program. Everything else is great in my book. Processor handles anything that I've thrown at it, from games to spreadsheets. Wi-Fi connectivity is perfect. Battery life is sufficient for my needs, though it does run short on a long movie. The touch-pad also works flawlessly and can be disabled with a press of a button if you like to use an external mouse.
