Purchased this laptop as a Christmas gift for my oldest son who is going back to get his MBA. It came with Windows 7 operating systems and no other software, but that was okay as the college he is attending provides Microsoft products at a greatly reduced cost. The laptop has a screen large enough that you can work with easily, yet its total weight is very light so easy to carry.Read More
