"Do NOT get this laptop"1.0 starson by littlefrogling
Pros: light, easy to carry
Cons: heats up fast, keyboard impossible to keep clean (catches dust, dirt, grease), shoddy construction, bad battery life
Summary: I bought this laptop for law school - it was considerably smaller and lighter than my old laptop, and I liked the look of it. I knew it wasn't the best thing out there, but it fit in my budget.
I've now been using it about a year, and I would tell anyone to NOT buy this. Performance-wise it's fine - all the regular problems you would expect with Vista. The big problem I have is that it's built VERY poorly. I'm not rough on my laptop - I only use it for school, and it's basically lives in the cushion pack I store it in.
Because it heats up so bad, the little cushion pads on the bottom (to keep it from skipping) and around the screen (so the screen won't touch the keyboard) have all melted off - I have a pile of them on my bookcase, but I haven't been able to find a way to get them to re-attach. My left arrow key has fallen off, which is too annoying to describe. This morning, when I was closing it after shutting down, the left hinge snapped.
I've had this computer a year, and it is in worse physical shape than my old laptop that I carried all over Europe and dropped numerous times. Even though it's probably about 5 years old now, I'm thinking I might go back to using that one, just because it's not falling apart.
