I have had this laptop for over 3 years now. In fact I am typing this review on this laptop right now. At the time that I bought this laptop, this laptop was one of the best out there. Now-a-days you see every laptop with 2+gb of RAM. But even so, this laptop has been very reliable. I have never had any problems with it and I haven't needed any professional help to fix anything because nothing needed to be fixed. This laptop has a nice big screen which is really helpful when watching a movie or a video from a camera or something. All in all, this laptop has brought nothing but joy to me, with absolutely no problems whatsoever. It has been reliable and it has been no trouble at all. But times have definitely changed and laptops have significantly improved. I wouldn't really recommend this laptop to others because it is not as fully capable compared to the laptops of today. The features of this laptop aren't really good compared to the other laptops.
