I have had this laptop for about 3 years now, and before that it was my dads' who had had it for about a year, and it's lasted me this long. There are a lot of advantages and disadvantages to this laptop. To start with, I think it looks quite nice. It's not as modern and compact as the laptops these days but it doesn't look as bad as some you can find. The best thing I think about this laptop is the buttons on the front, for the volume and stop/play button. It is really handy and doesn't look ugly, which i thought it would do. Now, I'm not a computer expert so when it says it's 512 MB I don't know if that's big or small, but it does hold a lot, I'm never out of space, which to be honest is the same for all laptops anyway. I like the screen size, and the mouse screen is good. What could make it better is if it perhaps had the little arrows on the side, so you can scroll up and down. The keyboard is good, pretty much like every other laptop. Overall, this laptop is really good, but i couldn't describe all the features because I don't know about that stuff, but I'm sure it is really good, which it is in my opinion.
