This laptop was a great deal from Circuit City. After a 150 dollar mail-in rebate, the final price was around $850.00, which was a great deal. It came with two gigs of RAM, a 150 gig hard drive, and a 1.5GHz Intel Core 2 Duo. The 150 gigs was a bit too much for me, considering it's mainly for notetaking in class, but too much is better than not enough. My chief complaint is that it came preloaded with Windows Vista, along with all of the junk Circuit City decided to put on it. It has a 14.1" screen, perfect for what I use it for. Also, battery lasts around 3 hours when not using wireless, long enough to get through a few classes. Overall, it's a great laptop with fast bootup times after deleting all of the junk and enough battery to use it for an extended period of time. I'd advise reformatting, though, and installing XP if possible. Great buy, though, very happy with it.
