I purchased this laptop to get me through until I found the 'right' desktop. It has been three months and I realized that this laptop is everything I have been looking for. It was easier than easy to set up. I had all my files transferred and programs uploaded in under two hours. This laptop was purchased for my office/studio and being able to get back up and running was very important. Now that I have decided to make the laptop my primary computer, I am able to take my office with me when I need to be away. The speed and performance is very impressive.
