|Lg screen, beautiful vibrant colors, fast, laser scribe, great price If you are going to carry this around, it is rather big and clumsy. So far, this computer has been returned 4 times, including right now. In July when I picked it up from those Geeks at Best Buy the battery was ajar. This is a great machine. I have had it for about 3-months so far and have experienced no problems. Speed, Size, Reliability Runs a little warm. This is a great machine.
