Summary: The first laptop had four keys which didn't work so the laptop was returned and replaced very quickly. I have not had any emails to say the returned laptop has been received so I am hopeful that I will not be charged twice! The new laptop seems OK and I like it and from the start seemed to work much better although it is identical.
Summary: As of the time of writing Amazon's info probably undersells this. It's a 4th gen i5 4200 processor with win 8.1 installed. Not too much bloatware and elegantly thin. Not a touch screen, but who really needs that in a laptop? Pro's: Feels solid in the main, lovely form factor, plenty of storage, adequate RAM Cons: Heavier than I expected, slower start up than I expected, touchpad feels a bit flimsy - if anything fails this is it. Overall: Glad I bought it.
Summary: It turned out to be a very good purchase for its money. I was a bit uneasy before buying it, because of negative comments in earlier reviews concerning the quality of its screen. Having watched several films, in addition to long-hour daily use for professional work, I found out there was nothing wrong with it. For the time being (I have had it less than a month) it works perfectly. A lightweight laptop with 1 T HDD and 6 GB RAM is hard to find at this price.
Good value for money, but the screen has very poor viewing angles

Summary: I bought one of these for a friend and set it up. It's good value for the money (and note that the price fluctuates wildly), but the screen is pretty awful. I work in IT, I'm using a variety of a laptops, and I wouldn't want to use this for any amount of time: although it's quite sharp and bright, the viewing angles are terrible.
Summary: It has been said before. You get what you pay. Of course this product cannot be compaired with the expensive 1k+ laptops, but for what you pay is it perfect. The biggest minus is the monitor. The viewing angle is crazy bad with lots of distorition if you don't look at the screen in a straight angle. Also, build quality feels cheep sometimes, but not a dealbreaker. Apart from that, I don't have any problems and I am really happy with my purchase.
