              We bought two of these laptops to replace outdated machines. After a search looking for price and quality.. B&H came to 'the top'. Both the machines, the service and follow through from B&H have been exceptional.

                    Everyday use. Does what it is supposed to. Manage settings to be sure to maximise efficiency.
                    Casing seems delicate so use a good case and handle with care.
                    For the money it would be hard to do better - just know that these are not meant to last forever.
                    Nice screen. Nice to have DVD burner. Smooth handling - better than my more expensive other brands of super low end computer.
                    enjoy.

                      Very nice lightweight laptop with decent specs. I'm not using it for anything ram or graphics intensive. For regular web browsing, lite games, and office programs it does really well. The battery life seems reasonable also. It may be a little to light perhaps flimsy construction especially for those looking for something they will drop, knock around etc.
