Summary: I had high hopes for this computer, assuming I ever got past learning to use Windows 8. As other people have said, having a touch screen makes 8 easier to use. The catch was, mine came a few days ago with a defective touch screen that acted like someone was tickling it along the right edge as soon as I powered it up.
Summary: the wireless connection continues to disconnect even though other computers on my network still have an internet connection. The keyboard and mouse pad suck. there is something wrong with the spacebar. window 8 sucks and continues to crash.
