Summary: For the price this laptop has a lot of bang. 8 gb and 1tb of hdd is amazing for the price. It runs smooth with several operations running at once. The speakers are not overly loud but a pair of headphones fix that. It is built very solidly and the keyboard is very good. Worth the purchase.
Summary: I loved this laptop bought it on Boxing Day sale. My problem is that the charger cord stopped connecting and I brought it in for repairs. That was two and a half months ago. I have not heard back on it yet and not pleased with that. If that didn't happen I still would be in love with it.
Summary: Bought mine Boxing Day last year. Same issues as others: speakers are poor, and keyboard layout could absolutely be better. Should be laid out more like a "normal" keyboard. Would make it easier to use. Sometimes shutting down takes a while, but boot up is pretty quick.
