Have mine for a couple of weeks. Great laptop for business (get a usb bluetooth for this model) and school. Has a nice carry weight and has an expensive feel and look about it. For those who are not aware of MSI, they have been a leader in PC component& hardware supplies. I had a HP DV1000 before...sweet laptop... and that was $750 3 1/2 year ago. I think this is just as good. You can't go wrong with these spec at $430.

I was concidering a netbook that would have cost $339 when I came across this full blown laptop.
Now I thought hmmm! a net book with a single core prossessor and 1 gig of ram with a single core chip with no optical drive or the MSI 420 with a dual core chip, 2 gigs of ram, dvd burner, 14 inch screen, only about a pound heavier for $60 more.
Let me think. Yes the MSI.
