This is a great laptop. I like the touch controls for the media player at the top. Some good things are: the battery life; I usually get around 4hrs 30min to 5hrs on balanced or eco mode ,which is great for college. I like the number pad on the side; very useful if you are used to a desktop computer. The sound is very good also. The bad things I have noticed are: bad microphone quality; the sound gets very distorted on the webcam mode. The CD/DVD player also doesn't work when I try to install a certain version of Roxio. You also have to be careful when you close the CD/DVD slot so the disc doesn't get stuck between the drive and the computer. Overall, very good laptop.
