My Opinions- I bought this Laptop about 7-8 months ago and have had absolutly no regrets. Although this fact alone might suggest you should buy a more reccent model.

Fast, plenty of space it ticks all the boxes (If you don't understand the specifications- they are above average and unless you are downloading loads of content you will be fine).

5.0 out of 5 stars The Climbing Handbook, 6 Oct 2007
This is a definite buy for anyone either starting out or have been climbing for a bit. Topics covered are: History of climbing/climbers, equipment, styles of climbing, knots, belaying techniques, placing runners, climbing techniques, training/exercise tips, diet info, first aid, places to climb and more. Very good general book on climbing. Has information about both indoor and outdoor climbing. However much more relavent to outdoo climbers.
