I'm a teacher and this was the model given out as standard as part of the laptops for teachers initative. It was also available separately for retail.
The laptop has 3 USB ports, modem, network port, VGA, headphone and mic inputs. There is nothing else really and it is a basic setup. Although it is basic is has done a good job of running everything that I have needed out of it.
The screen is a basic 15" regular shape (not widescreen) and it isn;t the brightest or clearest but none the less does ok.
The unit is fairly well built but recently I have begun to have problems with the keyboard flexing heavily and as a result I have been finding it hard to use the p button and several others intermittently.
The wireless card included is fairly straight forward and using the Windows Zero Configuration utility, I have had a good signal nearly all of the time compared to others in the same room or place as me on a dedicated usb or PCMCIA card.
My wife uses the same laptop at home as her work unit and while it functions well in most cases she has has a problem with the machine slowing up massively and everything we have done has made no difference.
Overall the machine is ok and will do everything it is needed to but not a great gaming machine. Word processing, internet etc fine but get a dedicated gaming machine if that's your thing.
