looked around for best lightweight laptop, and after trying many different once, this is the best choice for the small, lightweight, and long lasting battery laptop. the price is little too spendy, but its worth it in long run. i travel a lot and you can get up to5-6 hours on single charge. it has XP so that makes it even faster. one of the best things is that it has 3 years of worannty, which makes it awesome too.

super light weight, fast speed, good wifi , bluetooth and fingerprint. Only complaint is the touchpad, it is too high so that you always move cursor by accident. I use wireless mouse and disable the touchpad, so it doesn't bother me.

The touchpad is too shallow and located in such a way that when touch-typing the base of the thumb on the right hand contacts the touchpad and relocates the cursor. I had to return the computer, because it was impossible to work around this design flaw. Suggest that the touchpad be lowered the same amount as on every other laptop/notebook.
