I bought this laptop over 4 years ago for general use as a student, and still today it is able to satisfy all of my needs leaving me with no good reason to replace it for something newer. After updating it to Windows 7, it still maintains the speed I expected when I bought it. It initially arrived with Windows XP Media Center Edition with little bloat-ware and a wealth of useful and free applications such as Adobe Photoshop Elements and Premier Elements.
Aesthetically this is an ageless, well-designed machine which competes with more recent laptops today in terms of design.
The best attribute of the machine however is the gorgeous X-Black LCD display which boasts natural colours and exceedingly crisp text.
On the other hand, despite the laptop being powerful at the time, it never really was intended to be a gaming laptop, so by attempting to play new games on this machine, the results would be very disappointing, despite this, it's great for everything else.
Comparatively, this laptop is heavier than others on the market currently rendering it less portable, but surely this is expected with age.
This is a highly recommended, reliable personal laptop computer.
