This is the first laptop I ever worked on for prolonged periods of time. I admit that I was never a big fan of laptops, since I prefer the beefier Desktop PC's (still do, but not quite as much anymore).
I Bought this laptop earlier this year, (but mine has an 80gig hard drive). I have to say that I am impressed with this machine. It is always very reliable and doesn't give me the hassles that my desktop does. It may not be the fastest, but it certainly gets the job done.
