Pros: Overall this laptop performs well. The power of the i5 processor and the solid 8 GB of RAM is noticeable. I am a graphic designer and this computer so far has handled the Adobe Creative Suite software like a champ. I uninstalled some of the pre-packaged bloatware, just as another reviewer did. I also used CCleaner to clean up the registry after uninstalling those programs and used AutoRuns to determine what I wanted to auto run at startup. Both are great, free programs. Everything being considered, the bottom line is if you can get this for the $479 price tag, it's a good deal.
Cons: Having a little better screen resolution would have been an added bonus.
Other Thoughts: Previously, I had been using a MacBook Pro for almost 6 years and while it's different going to a Windows platform after years of using a Linux-based system, I really enjoy Windows 7 so far.
