Pros: Windows 8 operates great with this touchscreen. Boot up is fast enough. This lap top is great for every day use. Thin and easy to carry. Does not heat up too much for now. Cools down very fast
Cons: Figured there would be no disc drive for being so thin. had problems with the mouse pads not being able to scroll with two fingers sometimes. Can't play much high graphic games on it! not a laptop for gamers.
Summary: Overall, this notebook is great. Only a few glitches with installing. 1) 98 updates were needed before I could upgrade to WIN 8.1, so I was on the phone with tech support for hrs 2) Learning 8.1 takes some effort! 3) Bluetooth devices would not work until updated But now things seem to be running smoothly.
