Advantages: Speedyness, style, layout
Disadvantages: the letter keys hard to remove
My partner and I bought this Laptop from one of the big chains like curry's or comet on the recommendation of one of the technical support staff. He recommended this laptop over the other ones in our price range as he said that he never has these returned to be repaired. After taking his advice and specifying that we needed the laptop solely for internet browsing and store all our music on itunes we bought this one in the stylish red colour.
It has served its purpose very well, we have a lot of music on there and it hasn't slowed it down at all. The keyboard and mouse layout is very easy and comfortable to use and the display a nice size to work with.
The only drawback is that about 9 months after buying the laptop one of the letter keys started to stick, and I tried to take the key off and see if there was anything underneath. It turned out there wasn't but where the key had been stubborn I had snapped something that held it together and now the key doesn't fit back. I can still use my 'o' but I may have to return back to that technical support guy, prove him wrong and get him to fix the letter back on.
Overall it's a very good laptop, it does everything I bought it for and I love the red colour, however don't be as heavy handed as me if you need to remove one of the keys.
Summary: Top notch laptop
