    To be honest, I tend to shy away from anything that has the term "celeron" in it, even if it's a Dual-Core one. And the Intel Integrated Graphics are a real put off too.

    But for some reason they've given it 4GB worth of RAM, so I think that'd make up for a few of it's shortcomings.

    Saying that, I still would try and get a better one.

    It would be a nice everyday laptop for checking emails and watching movies n stuff. Don't expect to do any video editing with that or playing any video games.

    The notebook would be great for those uses.
    Notebooks are not really designed for those uses anyway.

    I agree.

    That's going to be a can of worms.

    well, it was put aside for me last night, but when i went into work today some silly teenage girl went and sold it before I got in, even though it had my name plastered all over it.

    Stupid girl, thanks for the advice anyway.
