This laptop is one of the best I have used and I really like IBM products. It's very reliable, it rarely glitches and hard crashes. The design is a bit old fashioned but it still looks nice. The battery life is long. It can last for about up to seven hours. The screen resolution or display is great, even it's not the clearest but clearer than the majority of the other laptops. The sound system is one of the few disadvantages for this laptop. I don't think the range is wide enough and it can't be very quiet or very loud. It only stays at the medium volume.The keyboard is great, it's hard and strong in fact the entire laptop is not very fragile. The touch pad is amazing it's not overly sensitive but it works when you want it to. Also the speed is good, it's faster than most of the laptop I have used and the speed keeps constant so it doesn't matter how long you have used it, the speed doesn't change. The weight is normal, it's not one of the light laptops but not so heavy either. It is quite suitable for traveling since it's reliable, and also fast. Overall the laptop is great, I would recommend it to everyone because the product is high quality and many factors that makes it good for the price. Especially the speed, battery life, and it's suitable for all jobs but I would strongly recommend this to university students because the speed is amazing and reliable so you don't have to buy a new laptop from time to time.
