I love love love this laptop. It's so easy to use and lightweight. It takes up to 4GB of DDR2 memory and you can prettymuch upgrade to any size hard drive you want (SATA). Sony did a great job with these, and you can pick your own color (Mine is Green). They are perfect for on the go computing, because they are super light and the display isn't too large or WAY to small like the netbooks. They have great functionality, you can multitask like a pro. Watching movies is super easy with the DVD combo, and if you want to watch streaming the internet is SUPER quick. You can pick up WiFi signals pretty far away so no matter where you are you're always close to the internet. If you want to use a laptop for home, school or work. This one is PERFECT for you.
