This is a great computer to use for school and home use. It can be used for business use if it is for general administrative use. I have had this computer about 18 months and it has served me well. The only problems I have had with were self made (virus) when not using common sense. I don't like the audio because it has a tinny sound and not very loud so I have added speakers but I can use my earphones when necessary which is fine. It plays dvds, cds and does the job. It is light and transportable throughout my house. The battery life is about 3 to 4 hours. About the time it takes to watch a movie. This is not for a serious gamer. The graphics are ok but I purchased this computer because it was on sale and cheap for my needs. If you are an average person who needs this for email, light game playing, downloading movies or watching on line tv, this computer will more than do the job. I would purchase another without hesitation. I really like this computer.
