"all manufactures seem to sacrifice performance for tiny. This laptop, bought refurbished, is one of the best purchases I have made. This is the sixth in a line of laptops over the last 15years. I do not miss the lack of disc drive, most everything gets downloaded today; or transfer to usb.
I did not get the extended battery and was concerned; needlessly. I have enough power for 4 to 5 hours.
I agree with other reviewiers re the control/function key confusion...still trips me up after 7 months."
"I had a difficult time choosing a notebook style laptop. Due to the size, each manufacturer seemed to think they could move keys around on the keyboard without anyone noticing. As a writer who spends a great deal of time on the computer, I was particular focused on the pgup/pgdn/home keys and wanted something that simulated my other laptop and a standard keyboard. This one, though more expensive, fit the bill. Little did I know they swapped the function and ctrl keys on the left. It makes cut and paste extremely frustrating. Keyboard layout is sacred and should not be messed with.
Other than that, it is the perfect portable laptop and I love the extended battery. It is solidly build without having the cheap plastic feel of some netbooks."
