Not the most spectacular laptop, but it does the job just right

Summary: I've got it for about 2 weeks and even though it has some minor issues (mainly the bloatwares which can be *quite* easily uninstalled), overall it works great. Windows 8 is of course a pain, but Classic Shell got me through it. Touchscreen is intuitive and very helpful when I'm too lazy to reach for the mouse. Speaker sounds good enough for an average music listener like me; and webcam is high quality.
I give this laptop a 4 instead of a 5 because its almost perfect for my needs

Summary: This is sort of a hasty review...I give this laptop a 4 instead of a 5 because its almost perfect for my needs. So far so good, and i think it will stay this way for a while. If this is your first time getting a laptop with windows 8 or 8.1, then it will take a little while to become adjusted to the new setup. But again, im loving it so far, and really, for a college student, you wont need anything better than this.
Summary: 4.5/5 Starting off with the "negatives" so far. I have owned this laptop for a mere 11 hours yet I am satisfied. I know the screen is just average but I knew what I was buying so not complaint there. The only thing that has been bothering me so far is the spacebar. I am not sure if it is defective or if it is built this way but there are times when the key does not register me pushing down. I suppose I will just have to get used to it.
Summary: Windows 8 takes some getting used to, but this is definitely a solid laptop. The performance is great and was just what I was looking for to replace my old desktop. The only issue I've had is a driver issue with the video card that sometimes prevents the HDMI output from having sound. It's not something I've had an issue with a lot, but I couldn't fix it just with a driver update.
Great for gaming, but a bit lacking for the price. (PLEASE read this if you want to play games.)

Summary: This is more or less a first impressions review. I've put it through its paces, and I feel I can accurately review its performance. The review may change if the laptop falls to pieces over the next few months. ***EDIT AT THE BOTTOM, NEW INFO*** I'm perfectly happy with this laptop, and if the price I had paid for it ($750 used including a gift card) been the standard price, or $50 more, I would give it 5 stars.
Summary: I have only had this for about a week now, but so far it is great. The touch screen is a must if you are going to have Windows 8 operating system. The graphics are good and the speed is excellent. I am not much for gaming, but my son is and he put a couple games on here and they are smooth and clear. This is a great buy.
Summary: I've had this computer for almost 4 month. It would be a really good computer, but Windows 8 makes it impossible to work with. Every app that comes installed works around a single Microsoft password, and if you have an account with other mail like gmail, it would be a hugh pain. I had to stop working with skype, because it used my messenger account and not the one that I actually use. So had to uninstalled it and install other version.
