It has a cut down processor - the Celeron - which will be fine for office work, internet and perhaps DVD viewing.

It has 256mb of RAM - another 256 would help a lot, particularly as 64 of them are given over to graphics. This will be no good for gaming.

If you post details of what you might want it for and the budget within which you are working, someone may come up with an alternative.

A good option is an offer currently on in Staples. It is an Acer laptop with a price of only £399.99.

The spec is good and it is a solid, stable and reliable computer.

Hope that helps!
