Summary: I am going into my second month of using...and I am more than happy with its capabilities. No problems whatsoever right out of the box. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a good computer at a mid range price.
Summary: I love this computer for everyday type of activities. I actually own 2 of these! I bought one for my son to use for school as he was always using mine which I use for work mostly. Our old computer was impossibly slow, totally frustrating to use, which is why I replaced it for him. This is a perfect computer for general computer use like surfing online, research, writing reports, downloading music, pretty much whatever you'd want to do with it, it works wonderfully.
Summary: computer never functioned properly. I asked for a refund and filed a claim, but could never get my personal information off it because file explorer froze and i couldn't figure out how to reset it. Computer was definitely not "brand new" as described. The packaging was re-taped over, probably because some other poor sap had already returned it. Windows 8 is a joke, and so is this computer.
Summary: bought this for my room mate so she wouldnt ask to use my new laptop, what a bargain, windows 8 isnt a big deal once you load a start button from classicshell.net and with the one terabite HD and a powerfull processor she cant ask for more, it's fast and responsive, we took the trial version of mcafee off and got Defender up and running in no time and loaded all her favorite programs on the system.
