                                        I bought these notebook computers as a Christmas gift for my two teenage daughters, and they have been extremely pleased with them so far. They are easy to use and have a full-sized keyboard and screen built in, unlike many newer small computers.

                                            Bought this as a gift for a famoly member for at home websurfing, email and general use. It's very light and well built. The DVD is a pleasant extra. Easy set up and no problems so far.
