Summary: I ordered this because I needed a new computer for a job I was starting. The computer itself seems to be ok, but I have had lots of problems since starting it up, and it caused me to lose my job because I did not have a functioning computer. Shortly after firing it up, it wanted to do 17 windows updates. After doing the updates it said "failure configuring windows updates, reverting changes". This message never went away and the computer never started up.
Summary: We bought this laptop to live stream our favorite programs and news. It works great and we couldn't be more pleased. Yhe only thing we did not notice ubtil we used it to copy some pictures was that it doesn't have a CD drive, hopefully we can buy one and install it.
Summary: Set up fine, updated to windows 8.1 as recommended by other reviews. No problems for first 3 weeks and has now failed to start (screen is black upon powering up) and no way to proceed any further, currently in for repair.
