In these tough Economic times, my mom and I couldn't spend too much on a laptop, but we needed one since the last one i had broke from water damage. So we looked around and found netbooks which were really cheap. But the screens were really small and it was supposedly really slow since it couldn't hold as much storage. So we finally looked at Best Buy and we found a regular sized fast running laptop. Well actually, it wasn't regular sized, this thing is so big that I thought that they made a misprint in the price. But it wasn't. This laptop amazed me, and not just for the amount you would get for the price you pay, but beyond! It's fast running, and the screen is crystal clear. It's almost like it's in HD since it looks the same from each angle. It's 15.6 in from top corner to opposite bottom corner which is how people compare laptop screen sizes. But just to go the extra distance, the length is 13.5 in, and the height is 7.5 in. The keyboard isn't like the rest of the laptop keyboards. It has a number keypad too including to regular number above the top row of letters. I LOVE this laptop, and couldn't ask for anything better!!!
