Fantastic Processor and capable to a 2gb memory upgrade. Has a very good cooling system and a stable set up. Nice design and value for money. Power pack has a strong rectangular jack point so wont risk mother board damage to solder of the jack pin, unlike others.
Cooling fins clogg very easy
Had this for 5 years, it has never failed even when I spilled beer over the keyboard! Processor is rapid and is more than capable. Will run good basic games , but the only real down side for me is the graphics card it just standard but thats to be expected. Came with a 30gb hard drive which is still as quiet as the day i had it. I have had this on EVERY day for many hours so in total over 5 years I'm still on the same power pack. Battery as expected died of about 2 years ago thats because I kept it on charge in the laptop. 4 USB ports and a DVD cd Rom. I actually bought another last year expecting mine to soon end its life... BUT sold it as its just keeps going!
Comes with a great set of recovery disks and, basic bios set up. I recomend this laptop is simply simple but very easily upgradeable to max of 2gb memory. It will also over clock but avoid that. One advice point to keep it lasting... KEEP IT COOL. in the power pack, and clean the cooling fins of lint every 6 months and it will last... Try it for your self you wont be disappointed.
