Summary: Great battery life, fast, light, etc., but the up-to-date wifi driver causes very frequent (and frustrating) disconnects. The fix that worked for me was found on the Microsoft Community site (titled "wifi keeps disconnecting on windows 8.1").
Summary: This is the biggest piece of sh*t ever. My son's leap pad literally has more processing power than this thing. 1 star is about 5 too many but what can you do. Avoid this machine at all costs - even if someone offers you one for free, don't take it.
Summary: I'm confused about some of the reviews - no DVD drive - um, yeah, that was in the specs when you bought it. If you wanted a laptop with a DVD drive, then you buy one that states it has a DVD drive. Also a 1 star because of Windows 8? That has nothing to do with the actual laptop.
Summary: I like this model! It came with Windows 8.0 (Yuck!), but I upgraded it to 8.1, and then added a product that gave back the start menu and the Desktop. Now it works just like Windows 7. Also, this model had more memory that others at the same price. Great value!
