      A really good buy with excellent features.

      I bought this a few months ago and I'm really pleased with it. It's a very nicely designed computer with everything in and around the screen. There's no extra tower and the only separate parts are the mouse and the keyboard. So this is a great space saver, the actual computer takes up about 1/5th of my desk. The screen is very clear and a good size. There are speakers built-in below the screen and a camera built-in above it. USB ports are in the back and the cd/dvd player is in the side. It's very compact and a nice change to my old computer which had separate speakers and a tower. The standout feature is the touch screen, which to be honest sounds more exciting than it actually is. It's a feature that's always on and you can perform all actions that you would with a mouse and the keyboard simply by pressing or dragging across the screen. The computer brings up a different icon (a star) to the mouse (an arrow). It's very easy to switch back and forth between the two. I found it really easy to figure out too, it's just like using a mouse. However, I don't really use this feature much because as simple as I find it, I prefer using the mouse. There is a fun screensave of fish in a pond which responds to the touch screen e.g. you can move the water. But apart from that, it's just a cool feature which I don't use. The separate mouse and keyboard are both wireless. They are both in black and match the computer. They both have batteries and despite having the computer a few months, I haven't had to change the batteries yet. This is impressive because I use the computer a lot. The keyboard is very thin, light and about average size. The mouse is a bit smaller than a normal mouse I would say but not so much that it's a problem. I've found that the computer runs very smoothly and quickly. There's been no problems with it so far. It has Windows 7 which I've found to be nicely set up and very simple to use. In terms of programs, I had to buy microsoft office (word, powerpoint etc) but it comes with internet explorer and the usual types of programs (games etc). There's a nice selection of backgrounds and screensavers, and the option to run more than one user account. It runs DVDs well and the films look brilliant on the screen. The sound is good too but bearing in mind it only has the one large speaker built-in across the bottom of the screen. Of course surround sound would be better or lots of separate speakers but for what it has, the sound is clear and loud. I've used Skype on this computer and found it works very well. The quality of the video was good and so was the audio. There's a lot of space on it for storing files and I've only used about 10% of the 911 GB so far on the hard drive. Overall, this is an excellent computer which looks great, doesn't take up too much space, has lots of storage, easy to use, fast and has good video and audio. I'd say for the quality of the computer it's good value for money. I would say this is a good computer for any sort of student work (e.g. uni), watching movies, listening to music, internet use and general computer use. Use- 5/5. Design- 5/5. Value for money-5/5.
