This a really good laptop computer for its price. It is really light weight in comparison to other laptops that I've had in the past. The battery life is around 3 hours or so and can be extended by choosing your own power saver plan. Its processing speed is quite fast. I haven't had any problems playing games and the graphics look pretty good too. The touch pad sometimes doesn't react well. However, there is a neat program that came with the computer that allows you to zoom in and out, as well as move up and down any webpage similar to a mac touch pad. The spacebar sometimes does not react to my pressing it occasionally. The only problem that I've experienced with this laptop so far is that once while I was using it, it shut down suddenly. The screen went completely black. I started it up again and continued to use it, when suddenly it happened again. After that it has never happened again. Overall it is a great computer and I have recommended it to many of my friends and family. A friend of mine bought the same one as I did and he loves it too.
