Had this laptop for about 6 months.
Pros of this laptop are that it virtually never gets hot and so can be used for ages. I also looks great with the gloss white finish. Also has 3g data card built in which is very handy. The screen is LED backlit which is great as it greatly reduces eye strain. The laptopwas able to handle most tasks fairly well and was capable of opening multiple applications. its also great that it comes with Vista Ultimate as you get all the features of Vista Business but also get Media Centre. The tablet pen is very precise and a great feature.
The cons of this laptop are that it is sometimes quite slow. also, the screen bezel will break quite easily if you arent careful when rotating the screen. Another disadvantage is that the graphics card is extremely poor and hardly capable of running any 3d graphics or games.
