Pros: Fast startup, not a lot of preinstalled bloatware, comes with a free trial of Norton Antivirus, big screen, reasonably sized keys, number pad, volume keys above number pad, can turn off screen brightness without putting laptop to sleep, can run anything I've thrown at it (although I haven't done any high-intensity stuff like newer PC games), CD's and DVD's don't need any special setup to play.
The tl;dr: Has nearly everything I need in a laptop.
Cons: No lights for caps lock, etc (Just shows up temporarily on the screen), touchpad is in the right place to accidentally hit while typing (although think that's pretty much universal)
Other Thoughts: I'm about to head off to college, so we'll see how this does there, but as of now, I think it's perfect.
