If you want a machine to surf the net, use Word, Excel, and other Office products, this will do the job. The 1.5 Ghz dual core Celeron processor gets the job done and performs very well for a processor of this speed. Video gaming is not its strong point, as it has no special video capabilities. But downloading music to put on your MP3 player, watching Netflix, Email, Facebook, etc are what it does well. And the 500Gig hard drive will hold lots of pictures and video. It comes with just 2 Gig of memory, but its easy and inexpensive to upgrade of you want to run more demanding programs, like video editors. Not a very heavy duty laptop, so it won't hold up to the rigors and abuse that an office PC can take (like the IBM/Lenovo line of machines). Perfect for home use, even school. This is the 4th Aspire I have bought for family over the last few years (Wife, Daughter, Parents, and my own). They all perform well, no crashing, no issues. Just good solid performers across the board.
