"This is a great laptop for the money and is plenty fast"4.5 starson by taustin1382
Pros: Great Performance, Full Keyboard, Beautiful Display, Decent Video Card, GREAT PRICE
Cons: Battery Life, Crappy Internal Wireless Card.
Summary: Look, for $500 and change, I challenge you to find a better full featured laptop. I have had this laptop for about 3 weeks and other than 2 hours of battery life and some initial wireless card problems (Driver reinstall fixed it) I have nothing but good things to say. I have purchsed the 64 bit version of Xp and the performance increased significantly over Vista. I also have it dual booted with Linux (ubuntu 8.04 64bit) and it is absolutely screaming fast. I have no complaints about the performance and for the price it cannot be beat. just my 2 cents.
