Impressions on the laptop in general - This is the best laptop I've owned among the following: Acer 602TER, Dell 9300, Sony, Toshiba U205, and the ultraportable Toshiba 602TER. The build is very nice, screen is bright, fan doesn't run often, keyboard is a fine size for me, though I prefer a larger IBM buckling spring keyboard which I use when I can.
