I set one up last weekend and if I wanted to buy a lappy I would be getting this one, PDQ. Very capable graphics onboard graphics (you can choose a separate graphics card but I cannot see the point) and very fast. It handled all applications easily and this one was only the 'lowly' Celeron model. Built like Darth Vader's briefcase and solid, feelgood keys. Excellent DVD play with the wide screen and for the fashion slaves, the DVD control buttons light up with a blue glow when you press them....fashionista heaven.
