Very good system
By KBC on the go
Keyboard is lower than most making the wrist strain less!!No problems for me as far as the additional keys on the left.Fingerprint reader VERY useful.With a wireless mouse the need for the less than desirable pad is eliminated.Keypad is a closed system making the dirt almost impossible to fall through the cracks and the keys are spaced very well,much easier than the last one(Presario V5000) I had)This is a Pavilion dv6 3230us,I am actually proud to show this system to others,would have liked a higher i core,but costs were an issue,,if you can,an i5 or i7 would be great if you can afford it.
