How is it as a primary/only computer?

Say for doing "ordinary" tasks, with the odd bit of media transcoding and light/medium gaming?

The only real gaming i do on it apart from internet tower defense addictions is on Lego Star Wars / Indiana Jones, and it performs well in both. Granted neither are demanding games per se but i think they're amazingly well suited to notebook gaming, due to being keyboard controlled.

Couldn't tell you about transcoding but my 2.2Ghz zips along nicely in day-to-day tasks.

I'll have to search around for some expriences running TF2 then since thats a real dealbreaker. And could always get an external monitor for use at home anyway. thanks for the responses.

Depends on your usage, it's the main reason I have to switch to another machine because the screen resolution can be too limiting at times.
