Fixed this computer for my brother - buyer beware it comes loaded with junk

John Mahoney "jhmblvd", Amazon
4 February 2014
  • Summary: I'm a tech and was asked to clean the system by my brother. First it has a 1 GHz AMD CPU so it's sort of slow running a Windows 8 touch system. However there is so much crapware and bloat on the system that the little thing is completely bogged down when you boot it. The process of just cleaning up the bloatware takes a long time but if you don't do it you are left with a system that crawls along!

Don't purchase without good warranty

Karly, Amazon
14 November 2013
  • Summary: I liked this laptop at first. It's a little on the large side, but I guess this is the new standard for laptop sizes, disappointing because it doesn't fit in my bookbag. backlit keyboard is nice and touch screen in a definite plus. However, this laptop began to crumble quickly. The mousepad stopped working within a few weeks and I've been using an external mouse since. Then it would shut off or not turn on if unplugged. Now today, its not charging at all.

I have something negative

Amazon customer, Amazon
21 October 2013
  • Summary: A lot of good comments from other customers. Overall, the i5 processor allows the computer to run relatively fast. I gave 2 star because I don't recommend it to other customers for three reasons: 1) the touchpad is very tardy, even after changing the setting to FAST mode. I used different brand of laptops, this is the worst touchpad I have ever used. 2) The screen is terrible. When I looked at it for about 10min, I felt hurts with my eye.

Not impressed

9 October 2013
  • Summary: I'm not a fan of windows 8. My 1GB RAM netbook that's fizzling out ran faster. The computer didn't seem very sturdy or well made.

  • Pros: touch screen, sound is fairly good, picture clear, light weight
  • Cons: it doesnt have any software only has windows on it.

Below expectations

  • Pros: Touchscreen, thin, keyboard
  • Cons: sketchy wireless adapter, WIndows 8

Poor performance

C. Palanisamy "salsa boy", Amazon
19 May 2013
  • Summary: I have three acer laptops which includes touch screen. This laptop is junk! Mouse pad is not working, if I play three videos it starts slowdown. For this price I would prefer to buy iPad. Seller is the best, they refund my rerun item immediately.
