Overall good laptop to replace the oversize desktop with wiring. Windows boot time is about 20 secs. The plastic casing is cheap verses the T models. You can easily crack the casing. The resolution of 1400x1050 may be awkward as does not fall in the 800x640 ratio. The 15" is not a considered to be a widescreen but when viewing widescreen dvd it works well. It has a generic burner software. Battery time is about two hours. This really a desktop replacement unit. It is almost too heavy to carry around. The T models are better as it serves to have more battery time and weight. I wanted to get a fast machine without the mess that normal PC comes with. The 54 mb wireless card has excellent range. IBM provides a profile for you save your settings. The laptop generates a fair amount of heat. The four USB connector are awesome; two in the back and two on the left. There is no serial connector. You will need to get a USB to serial cable.
