I loved this laptop. I know longer have it, but it was my first laptop and it lasted a long time with very few problems.
It is quite an old laptop now, but even for today the spec if pretty good. The laptop looks good, it has a slight shiny blue lid, like a metallic look.
The ports, most of the ports are on the back, there are two USB ports, a serial port, a parallel port, a VGA port and network plugs.
On the front there are some media buttons, but i could never seem to get them to work, but they might just have been damaged on mine, not sure, but if they do work, they can play, pause, stop and forward and back in media player.
The keyboard is a good size and soft touch making it nice to use and the mouse pad is good as it is very smooth and never sticks unlike some more modern laptops i have tried. The screen is a good size, it is not glossy but it is very bright and good for watching movies, it is not widesceen though.
The internals are good, it runs on Windows XP Home edition and has a 40GB hard drive and Intel Pentium 4 processor meaning the laptop is fast and suitable for a lot of applications. Its not a great gaming laptop, but i have played quite a gew games like The Sims and Roller Coaster Tycoon and they all play fine, it does not like the Sims 2 that much though so its not good for newer games.
Overall this has been a good laptop and i have been pleased with it.
