Source Amazon/BestBuy: FYI this link is to the same exact version I purchased (which is now considered a much older model). If you look around, if interested for the XM200M models, you will find a more up to date one, but to keep this review as original as possible, I am adding the link to the model I purchased. The link points to my second wife (Amazon, since I seem to give her all my money) but I originally purchased from BestBuy as it had the cheaper deal at the time.

In a nutshell:

Worth the price, it’s slim, light weight, long battery life, gets the job done, and so far has been a road warrior. Don’t spend your cash on any laptop over $500 bucks, not worth it (depending on what you do), save your money and go on a trip (with this inexpensive computer) instead of over paying for a shiny brick.
