This is a good, sturdy laptop which, when I got it a few years ago, ran very well and had a great battery life. It is now rather dated, although as long as the quality in the Amilo Pro series remains the same, then this review should be a good guide for future purchases.
The laptop has a very well-built feel to it and, unlike friends' cheaper models, it has not given me any real problems despite quite intensive (daily) use. I initially purchased it for my last year as a student and it survived me cycling with it in my rucksack to lectures without a problem. It has also had its fair share of knocks without a complaint. The DVD-RW drive is great and also has a quality feel to it.
While this laptop has not been used to play games, it certainly has enough power to cope with video playback, iTunes, word processing and any website you throw at it. That said, there are better displays on the market now.
As with any litium-ion battery, its charge will reduce over time. After around 2 years it will need replacing if you intend to take it anywhere without the power cord too.
