This lightweight laptop has everything needed for traveling on business or for general home use. The wi fi works like a charm and the processor speed is great!

I recently purchesed this laptop for medical school use. I absolutely love it. It has everything I need, speed, memory, lightweight, and all the other extras ie webcame, FM tuner, and XD slot for digital camera memory card. My favorite part is that it is small and lightweight, I wouldnl;t trade it for anything else. The only thing that I am slightly concerned about is the estimated battery life. THey say is it should get up to 6 hours but I think that is if you aren;t doing to much. Not to big of an issue cuz I try to keep it plugged in anyway, Just an observation. Oh and the keys are nice and smooth, I absolutley love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It has a very good battery life (about 4hs and 30min) under W7 64bits, wi-fi always enabled and common usage, but it would be better if it had a 12-cell battery. The processor and memory are simply great, but the 5400rpm disk is quite a bottleneck (i.e. as windows startup). I use Linux too and there are almost none driver problem. The graphics performance is acceptable, but it would improve A LOT if it had a discrete VGA, so no system RAM is used. The drivers of the fingerprint unit aren't the best, so I would say that is not a deciding point for this particular model. The lack of a LED-backlit keyboard really sucks, but with a little practice you get used to this piano-like keyboard. Oh, I almost forget... The LCD display is just acceptable, because it is too sensitive to viewing angles. I don't know if that would improve with a LED-Backlit LCD, but that is definitely a medium-low point. The sound is mediocre (not just the standard speakers but the soundcard, it is a little noisy). Why in the world aren't Harman/Kardon speakers available in 13.3 inch models? Hope my review helps. Bye!

The password bank is the only feature that I've had unsatisfactory results with thus far. The laptop is really beautiful and powerful.
