"Not nearly as good as a Thinkpad"2.0 starson by MBarach
Pros: Light, good screen
Cons: Keyboard, storage is misleading, return policy
Summary: The machine is advertised as having an 80 gig hard drive, but in fact only 58.5 gigs are available. This fact is only included in a small footnote on the company's PDF datasheet on the last page--very misleading.
The keyboard is adequate at best, but a little flimsy, and after a few minutes of typing leads to serious wrist fatigue. A Thinkpad keyboard is much, much better.
There is no dedicated Page Up or Page Down key--you must hold down the function key while also pressing the up/down arrow keys.
The embedded WiFi antennae is much slower to transfer data than a Thinkpad, and the range is significantly less than a Thinkpad.
It takes two hands to open the lid on the screen, and you either have to have sturdy fingernails, or you have to put your left hand into the PC Card slot for leverage.
Finally, the company charges a 15% restocking fee. I had this computer for only a few hours before deciding to return it, and I'll have to pay $400 out of pocket. Supervisor Michelle at Sharp refused to waive this restocking fee.
I would avoid this machine--Thinkpads are much superior.
