Yes I know its only got 1gb ram and runs vista premium but for a 17" screeen and warranty its cheap as chip. Was about to buy a net book for the same price when I saw this.
Took a while to load all the updates but now it works well.
Now just need to work out what RAM this needs to make it a tad faster!
