Low cost, meets needs, but could have been designed better.

Summary: For the price, don't expect speed. It is sufficient for my needs, which are mainly internet usage and MS Office applications. The touch pad is flimsy and tricky. The sound, whether through speakers or headphones, is very tinny.

Summary: Good computer for someone who is only browsing the internet and doing very simple stuff. The processor gets hung up sometimes but thats alright. The touch screen is great, but the trackpad kinda sucks.

Summary: The computer's' screen is fairly jumpy. It is prone to resize itself when your fingers or hand drags the mouse activation area. Some of the navigation issues between the desktop and the app menu page may be due to Windows 8.1 construction rather than a flaw in this notebook computer.
Summary: im not happy with this computer at all, it is very slow, makes grinding noises, the touch screen is nice but i have to click around one spot like 5 times before it hits the right spot, this is NOT good for games, i use the desktop mode all the time because i do work on mozzilla firefox and use java...
It's good for your kids first portable notebook though
27 March 2015
Summary: Yeah not much you can expect from a mini little notebook. It's kind of hard to work off a small screen. Has a bit of slow time but I guess that's something that would normally be desired from such small specs. It's good for your kids first portable notebook though.
Summary: Considering what I paid it would be worth it to add some RAM (if supported) or swap in an SSD.
Pros: This was a great buy at half-price when I purchased. Lightweight, touchscreen is nice.
Cons: It feels very underpowered for Windows 8. Hard drive was constantly thrashing before I made some tweaks to processes and services, and it still lags at times. Trackpad response to double-taps seems hit-or-miss at times.
Summary: I posted a review soon after I bought this, and would like to post an update. The hard drive on this thing is abysmal. After using it for a while, the wait times became unbearable. I purchased an inexpensive SSD, followed some YouTube instructions, cloned the hard drive to the SSD and installed it.
Pros: Small portable size. Responsive touchscreen.
Cons: Poor battery life, about 2.5 hours for mine. Very cheap plasticky feel, (you get what you pay for). Lousy hard drive.

Summary: Ordered this a few months ago... Think I received it in September 2014. Was great when it arrived but after using it for a few months, I can honestly say that i would not purchase this product again.
