"Superb laptop"5.0 starson by SuperSailorSailing
Pros: Robust, efficient, great ergonomics
Cons: Optical drive door opens a little too easily.
Summary: I have owned and/or worked on a lot of laptops, starting with some of the earliest. This is a superb machine. Sexy? No. Useful? Absolutely. This box meets and exceeds all my important expectations.
Something that most reviewers and commentators overlook is the absolute solidity and value of the really strong case. Most of the major laptop failures I have experienced that made repair not worthwhile, even on high end models, has been failure of the plastic case.
For me this is the ideal workhorse. Underrated.
