So far, it's working great after one month. Played with the start up menu, dumped a lot of extra pre loaded junk and it's humming right along.
The mouse pad feels sticky at first... it just needs a lighter touch than my older dell inspiron 9300.
I got this machine for about 900 including tax and shipping. (Do your research on coupons!!) Being a DOS baby, I'm not ready to drink the mac kool aid and for the price, this meets my needs. Windows Vista is a non-issue with the nvidia gforce....
