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.

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.
