It is a good computer if you take care of it, but if the computer starts having problems around the hinges and the product is not under warranty. Good luck...

All the hardware is good for any type of gaming or other intensive computer uses
The keyboard is easy to use
Speaker system is clear and plays a wide range of frequencies
There is a major design flaw that causes the entire top half (essentially the monitor) to fall off. The computer continues to work as a computer afterwards with an external display

Overall, excellent product and I am very happy with it...

Easy setup to allow to surf the web quickly
Haven't had any issues yet
Connects fine
Small, light, and easy to install. Downloaded drivers ahead of time so all i had to do was plug it in a start enjoying the Internet. Get 54 mbps on router downstairs and through 2 walls. Router is set
Works on my old windows xp desktop
I had to manually find and activate the need Setup file for XP OS. It didn't auto detect it. Though I didn't have any such problems with Windows 7
Just does not connect 802.11n, 802.11g instead
The included network configuration software isn't great, I ended up disabling it and using the built in windows networking utility
I get slightly worse speedtest results with this than I get with my laptop's built in wireless adapter
The screen, fingerprint magnet, slow hard drive, and bloatware
