I purchased this laptop four years ago for my husband and I to use as our main family computer. We needed something portable because we travel and are out of the house alot. We picked this model for the features which included a large hard drive, large screen and dvd recorder. The software has all been great and we have hardly used half of the space on the drive. We don't do alot of movie downloading or anything like that though so that is probably why.

The biggest issue we have had with this unit is with the battery/ charging system and the hinges for the screen. It has been sent to the shop twice for both problems. The plug tends to break the connection between the place you plug it in and the system that charges the battery. Which in turn wears out the battery super fast. Not very handy in a laptop because you have to leave it plugged in all the time! Also, the hinges on the screen are apparently not strong enough to hold it up over time. We have had them replaced twice and they are broken again!

Overall its a good computer but I wouldn't recommend it if you plan to do much travelling or out of the house work on it.
