Chesterfield Area GB General home user
This is good laptop for anyone buying a laptop for the first time.
Easy to use therefore good for starting out.
I bought this laptop in addition to the 5735 I already had.
This one not as good, only two usb ports not three.
Battery life very poor. Windows 7 not as good as XP or
Vista as far as I am concerned.
