This laptop is amazing! I would like to make it very clear that I do not work for Packard Bell - I have just owned Packard Bell computers since I replaced my Amstrad.
I am also not very good at quoting figures but what I do know is this is one of the fastest computers that I have ever used, if not THE fastest computer I have ever used! The hard drive is reasonable as it is a commonly known fact that laptops have smaller memory when compared to desktops. But my desktop which I still sometimes use is comparately useless. If the Packard Bell EasyNote MZ was a Porsche, my desktop - a Packard Bell iConnect is a fiat panda - with no petrol tank!
It is very easy to use Windows and the laptop has a lot of processing power under its cover. One of my sister's friends tried it and was amazed by how quick it was compared to his own laptop, despite the fact that mine was the cheaper of the two!
There is only one problem with the laptop - the battery. The standard battery that is supplied by Packard Bell is not good enough if you want more than one and a half hours battery power for light tasks - and that amount of time falls fast if you're burning CDs or DVDs. But you can find a lot of places on the internet or around that stock cheap batteries for this laptop.
