What I like: It has most of the ports that you would need and its strongly built. It also very slim and light weight.

What I don’t like: It only has Windows 7 option, Who wants Windows when Ubuntu works nice reliably and doesn’t have the virus blues? What would be nice if this model had a Linux option, right now you are forced to purchase the Windows even if you don’t use Windows.

It also doesn’t have choice of colours only black. Who says Business users don’t want a choice of colours?
