I'd look elsewhere.

Randy StClair, Amazon
31 March 2014
  • Summary: I do not like this computer. It feels very slow. My recently crashed 8-9 year old HP ran WAAAAY faster. Even to keyboard lags frequently. I have broadband internet and it takes MINUTES to load simple textual web pages like recipes. You have to pound the space bar to get it to work.

It was hacked to pieces and looked like crap when I bought the computer

Aaron Prebenda, Amazon
9 June 2013

There was a large sticker in the center of the top edifice when the computer is closed. It was hacked to pieces and looked like crap when I bought the computer.
