This computer is a PC World best buy...and for a reason. Boots fast as lightning. Since there's no hard disk whiring, it stays cooler, is lighter, and battery lasts longer. The only complaints are very minor. The touch pad isn't the best I've used but it's functional and you can always add a USB mouse. The other complaint is only 2 USB ports but you can add a port multiplier to solve that. Love the light weight & nearly 9 hour battery (which I'm finding to be closer to 7 hours). I also wish I could have bought this computer with Linux instead of that OTHER operating system. I checked out prices for this computer and WalMart has the best value. Add to that the free shipping and there's no reason to even shop elsewhere.
