I have been wanting a laptop for years but they were always so expensive I could never bring myself to spend the dough and get one. But my husband, bless his heart, bought me one for Christmas and gave it to me early. So now not only do I get to enjoy my new laptop I also get to provide this review for you. Definately a win/win situation. Here is all the stats you computer whizes will want to know. AMD 64 Athlon X2, 1024MD DDR2 system memory, 160GB hard drive, 15.4 inch widescreen, 287MD graphics memory, 3 USB ports, CD/DVD drive and a Partridge in a Pear Tree....Now, for the reasons I like it. It is light weight. I can lay in bed with it balanced on my belly and read my email if I want to...scary image I know. I can carry it around under my arm or in the case without feeling like I am lugging a bag of bricks.It has plenty of memory for all I want to do...like surf the net, send pictures in my email, save pictures, documents and spreadsheets. Play games, check the weather, etc. etc. It comes with Windows Vista. Word, Powerpoint, Excel, Microsoft Works. And it connects effortlessly to my LAN and provides me with wireless internet connection whereever I wish to be;bedroom, bathroom, living room...wherever. It is also sturdy although I wouldn't recommend dropping it too many times. All in all just a nice, comfortable portable computer, which afterall, is all a laptop really is.
