It will make a good replacement for my lovely Thinkpad, which broke my heart to give back to my company when I left. This is no Thinkpad (those puppies are expensive!), but it's ultra-portable and runs a browser just fine. It's about 4 years old but refurbished.
I mostly see myself using it for connecting to the internet from my couch or when traveling. I think it should be able to do that without problem, and I'm hoping it will last a good long while.
This is great, I'm so glad it arrived before I left town for Chicago!
