    I just got this laptop about a week ago. I had my last laptop for about four years. I knew it was time for an upgrade but wanted a laptop that would last me and serve me well. I am an online university student and spend over 30 hours a week on my laptop doing school work, not to mention the normal watching movies, FB, ect… I love this laptop! It has a beautiful silver body with a textured top. I love the textured top because it makes it a lot harder for it to slip out of your hand when your carrying it around. The 15.6 LED screen is beautiful and I love watching movies on it. For the size of this laptop it is incredibly light. It has a great sound quality. I love the keyboard. It has a number pad to the right of the keyboard, which helps me tremendously wiht my statistics classes. The laptop works great and runs well. I would definitely recommend this to a friend.
