Meh

DANIEL K., Newegg
19 September 2014
  • Summary: Overall decent for its price. But not very good for watching videos or gaming. It keeps making this buzzing noise when it freezes and it's not because the laptop is overheating.
  • Pros: Nice Keyboard Decent for price
  • Cons: Touch screen keeps ghosting (pressing by itself) Keeps freezing randomly when watching videos or light gaming. Windows 8 Side power button

Bad Problem

Nancy Solomon, Amazon
8 September 2014
  • Summary: The computer seems to have come with some kind of a virus, etc. I can work about it to a point. I was able to download antivirus and firewall protection. Both say that there is nothing wrong, but it still has the same problem. I guess I am stuck and will have once in awhile LIMITED use.

Disappointment

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Cons: Very difficult to connect to wifi. Internet speed is very slow.

Have to reset on day 1

Ehan, Amazon
12 May 2014
  • Summary: The price is great for a computer with settings like this one so I bought it. Shipping is fast. I got it the second business day after I bought it. The design is new, Windows 8 works well. The first software I installed was Chrome and this laptop dead after the first time I open the Chrome.

Loud and annoying fan, windows 8 deserves the hate

Jimmy W, Amazon
25 April 2014
  • Summary: This computer is fine for what it is. It is generally fast enough, does what I ask it to. Two BIG problems to be aware of: First, all the hype is true, Windows8 is absolutely horrible. I am an average computer user who got this for work.

Touchpad issues

Michele R. Ferrari "Josh's Mom", Amazon
2 January 2014
  • Summary: I was super excited when I ordered this laptop. I had previously owned an Acer and never really had any problems with it. This one, however, has been a constant source of frustration. Within a month of having it, the touchpad hasn't performed right.

Awful.

I. O. Grau Fay, Amazon
18 November 2013
  • Summary: First and foremost the power button is on the left edge of the lop top instead of above the keyboard. This makes moving the machine a pain. It constantly gets turned off when I move it due to my hand going over the power button when I pick it up.

  • Cons: Not durable
