Fully recommended for any students in year 12 and above. This is a speedy and fairly lightweight laptop with a decent processing speed and is more than enough for typing essays, playing video games, watching DVDs, listenings to music and surfing the internet.
There are, however, a couple of down sides:
*The finger scanner seems to malfunction after a certain ammount of time of disuse.
*The internal memory will need to be expanded with an external hard drive, especially if you want to to store photograhs, videos and music
*When using the laptop as a DVD player you need to plug it into external speakers since the inbuilt speakers are overwhelmed and drowned out by the very noisy DVD reading system.
Otherwise, as a first laptop and for students starting AS/A2 levels or University, or even for general office work, this is a very useful and easy to use laptop.
