I got this a few weeks ago for $299 for my daughter. Not bad so far, FYI though the C drive for the OS is only 30GB I think and the D drive has the rest of the 300 something GB. Not a big deal, but I had to remember to change the default install locations for programs so as to not fill it up. No CD-Rom drive, but light weight. It does come with a zippered sleeve.
When I started out in the H/W Field that's how I did it and that's how I suggest partitioning a drive which is essential in data recovery.
