I bought this for university a few weeks ago. Im a cmputing student so use it alot for all my work aswell as for watching videos and movies.
It came with windows home premium 64-bit which is excellent and runs quite quickly. The processor is fast and can handle me operating several programs simultaneously without freezing. It also has office starter which saves me the money for buying the full version for now.
The laptop screen is wide and the laptop comes with a full numberpad. It is lso light which is helpful for me as im always travelling with it from city to city and home to university.
There are three USB ports on seperate sides which gives great flexibility, i can charge my phone and use my memory stick at the same time for example. Another reat featue is a SD card slot, which comes with a placeholder that stops other things getting into there. The webcam is good, very clear. Battery life is not excellent but can be extended in power save mode.
Performs alot better than my old toshiba. All in all a great buy.
