"The best computer I have ever owned"5.0 starson by glenegan
Pros: Amazingly light and durable
Cons: silly scrolling thing
Summary: This is the best computer I have ever owned, bar none. Better than any laptop, desktop, bartop whatever. The thing has run perfectly, it has survived dozens of flights from the UK to US out to China and back again. I use it for email, web and MS office it performs all these functions effortlessly. I don't use the computer to run CAD programs - hello!!! it's a LAPTOP!!! The battery life is excellent, I can watch a couple of DVDs without the Dellhernia from lugging the thing around an airport. The CD cover is excellent - you cannot open it while the laptop is closed so it tends to be MORE durable than normal side mounts which are prone to getting bent. I have owned it more than a year now without a carrying case - when i make a day trip to LA I just carry the thing on the plane. The case is flexible to absorb energy and hasn't cracked or deformed despite my clumsy nature. I am frankly shocked at the poor rating CNet gave it - I have owned a dozen or so laptops and this is the first time I actually feel some brand loyalty - all the other ones I was happy to see the back of!
