Summary: Do yourself a favor and don't buy this. Mine is about 2.5 years old now and I've had so many issues with it. The keys are raised, so everything, and I do mean everything gets stuck underneath them. It overheats and shuts off constantly, and the newest issue is blue screens.
Summary: Ever since we got this laptop we had problems with it - and they never stopped!!!. Very LOW QUALITY product that I couln't recommend even to an enemy. First speakers stopped working, no sounds were coming at all.
I would only recommend this to someone who had killed my dog or slept with my wife...

Summary: this computer would be fine if it would turn on! this is the second time that i have called customer support for the same problem( who by the way barely speak english) so the first time they said it was the battery so they sent me a new battery which works for about two weeks until now it wont turn...
Summary: Two things annoyed me about this laptop once I bought it (new) and started using it. One was that the CD/DVD drive was extremely flimsy, and the other was that the fan for the motherboard was constantly turning on and off, on and off for no reason, and was very loud.
Summary: FIRST ONE DELIVERED REPLACED AFTER A WEEK DUE TO NON FUNCTIONING KEYBOARD...SOME LETTERS NOT TYPING AT ALL. NOW A YEAR AND 7 WEEKS ON AFTER HAVING THE NEW ONE AND IT'S DEAD ON ME, LAST WEEK REFUSED TO LOG INTO WINDOWS..
Summary: Im guessing the majority of people gave this laptop a review as soon as they got it, ive had mine 7 months now and im missing quite a few keys and can feel from pressing another few that they will also fall out soon too.
