This notebook computer is most comfortable with general computing tasks and flies through them all without a hitch. There is some flex in the screen frame but I find that this situation very rarely occurs in everyday usage. Separate buttons and a more defined touchpad would be an improvement. On the plus side, the keyboard is very quiet indeed. The hinges are sturdy and the base of the system must be held with one hand in order to open the lid; there is very little wobble when the screen is open. This does not seem to impact performance so far however, with the system coping with all admittedly tame tasks I have thrown at it.
