very good deal 01/07/2011
This laptop is excellent for people on a budget. It's very well built with soft aluminum shell. The laptop is both 14" and has a dvdrom which is not common. For the price, the performance is very good due to the Core 2 Duo cpu.
Mine included an XP Professional disc incase one needs to reinstall.
The touchpad on this model is terrible and hard to use, but I knew that before I purchased. Use a wireless mouse instead.
Only one ram slot is exposed in the bottom so you can only upgrade one stick of ram. The other stick is hidden somewhere inside the case.
I managed to dual booth Windows 7 and Ubuntu on it. Both are running great without problems.
To get the wifi working on Ubuntu, the laptop uses Broadcom wifi adaptor so I had to get internet by other means first, then install the Broadcom driver using "Additional Drivers".
