Summary: Bought this laptop but put it through something like Virtual DJ and the whole laptop gets hot. I don't think that this is a laptop that can be able to do hardcore things but if you want a laptop that sticks to the basics, this is the one for you. Just don't overwork it.
Summary: Its light, sturdy and well designed. It is quick too. However because of windows 8 I use my wife's Chromebook whenever possible.Also I spend most of my time inside chrome browser on the notebook because the windows 8 tiles are just a huge, slow, advertising space for all things Microsoft. Discovered an app on Chrome that gives a virtual start button to all Google apps from the desktop.
Summary: I bought this for my daughter for christmas to use for college. it does not have the basic microsoft words so i had to add it ..windows 8 is for touch screen use, this is not touch screen but is set up like it is . It was tough for her to get use to but she has mastered it.
Summary: I bought this for my dad when his old laptop dead. This computer is a bit slow, but it is very cheap. So if you are on a budget, this is not a bad choice. Cons: - Not a touchscreen (Windows 8 is really not designed for non-touchscreens), but again at this price, I was clear what I am getting. - Wifi is somewhat unstable, it took quite long to find my home wifi. It showed all my neighbor's wifi except mine. My other laptop had no problem finding it.
Summary: This computer was perfect for my 11 year old daughter to play Minecraft...which is the sole purpose of this PC. However, the touch pad leaves more to be desired. We solved this problem by buying a wireless mouse. Otherwise, great little computer!
