Laptop? more like a portable desktop.
With it's 20+ inch screen it's a biggie, and a bit heavy to be taking on the train to work. But as for moving round the house or office, it is ideal.
Mine is for home use and I think I'll have trouble finding something to beat it, when it comes to renewing.
I've had mine for just over two years now without any problems apart from the first week, in which the mother board packed in. It was exchanged and since then no problems.
I use it for my home business and have no problems with this machine at all(even running Vista) touch wood.
The size and clarity of the screen are outstanding, and the size really helps when you want to split the screen for watching video tutorials, so you can follow and copy in the other side.
The numeric keypad is a must for accounting, and being that wide you get plenty of info on the screen at once.
And when the working day has finished, and the Mrs is watching all that mind numbing crap on the T.V. You can move it to another room, and watch the sport or your favourite DVD'S.
Also the angling of the screen is great for outdoor use.
All these comments are for if you have it plugged in to the mains.
BATTERY LIFE- no more than 1 hour have I ever got out of this product, that is why I think it's better for home and office use, more than a totally portable laptop.
Portable Desktop is more apt for this machine.
