For the purpose of simple web browsing, this machine is magnificent. Briskly handles multitasking. I have yet to attempt anything very demanding of it, so I can't report on it's strength.
It's fans aren't incredibly substantial, so I would advise investing in a cooling pad with moveable fans, since it tends to generate heat most in the front-left corner.
Set-up was very easy, and the included programs are more than sufficicant.
I would definitely recommend this computer to any casual web user. The keyboard is very nice, and quiet. The machine itself seems rather sturdy, and is very sleek. The touchpad is nicely textured and pleasingly sensitive, and the scroll stroke works pretty consistently.
For the price, this machine is amazing.
