10/24/2009 10:35:45 PM This laptop, in itself, is fine. I am able to do everything I need business-wise without issue.Have been noticing on, for example, facebook.com the computer slows drastically and nearly freezes. I know the specs and that such specs should have no problem running that site; even multiple instances of the site simultaneously. Been frustrating, but I'm a PC Tech and have been trying to fix it the only ways I know how.
