I like the computer and its compact size, but the screen stretches and compresses images, distorting them. I'm far from expert and my attempts to rectify the image problems have been fruitless. Perhaps someone more computer-savvy could fix this. Otherwise, I am pleased with the purchase and the price. The computer has dual controls, the touchpad and an IBM style joystick in the keyboard and right and left mouse controls below the space bar as well as at the bottom of the touchpad. If I can figure out how to correct the image distortion I'd up my rating to 5 stars from 4.
