Very quick to set up start using.
The touchpad is excellent and works brilliantly; I especially like the scroll section at the right hand side.
The keyboard looks a bit strange at first but is very nice to use, and the touch sensitive buttons along the top are a nice feature.
Back up disks and a recovery disks are easy to create using the built in utility.
Windows 7 is very easy to use, and seems much more stable than Vista.
All in all a very good product and I am very pleased with it.
The only problem I had was setting up the wireless connection. I am a network engineer, so I know about these things. The built in wireless card loses connectivity when more than a couple of yards from the router. But if I use a cheap dongle it works fine, and the other laptops in the house all work ok without any problems, so I know it's not a problem with the router. Hopefully this is just a minor glitch with the driver and will be ok when a driver update is released.
