Pros: Light weight, decent screen, very good touchpad responsiveness and size, advanced close-the-lid standby or sleep mode, decent battery life (3+hours with screen at full brightness). Windows 8.1 upgradable. Fan is quiet, unit doesn't get too warm. 14" laptops fit way better in most backpacks, in my opinion. Allows VGA or HDMI connections.
Cons: The physical click portion of the touchpad requires a bit more pressure than I like, and makes a loud clunky click--but it works. I just got used to touch-clicking, rather than using the left physical button. The rubber bumpers around the screen bezel are the kind that are prone to damaging the display if your notebook gets very compressed inside a backpack with a lot of books--be careful or slide some sort of spacer to prevent bumper-to-body contact when the lid is c...
Pros: This laptop was a great deal for the price tag. Dual-Core Celeron and Intel HD Graphics run games like World of Warcraft on normal graphics settings with no lag and 25-30 fps. Way better than my 4 year old Toshiba Netbook with Intel Atom 1.66Ghz CPU with 2GB RAM and Windows XP Home and $80 cheaper than the netbook that I bought here on newegg back in November 2009 for $350
Cons: Paid the extra $2.99 to have this in 3 days. Ordered on Friday 11/1/2013. As of Monday 11/4/2013, I didnt have my laptop. I contacted Newegg via chat and asked why in the tracking info it shows that it didnt even ship until Monday 11/4/2013 when payment cleared on Friday 11/1/2013. I was told that it takes 1 to 2 business days to process orders and that you have to add 3 days onto that... so I said, so the 3 day shipping that I paid an extra $2.99 for is really 4 or 5...
Summary: A nice little computer for the price. While it's not a super-mega gaming computer, it competently handles Windows, email, web browsing, most recent games on medium settings, and most general office work. It can play HD videos well, too. It tackled Blu-ray movies just fine with my own external USB BD drive and a copy of Cyberlink Power DVD. It's lightweight for its generation, considering that it doesn't have an optical drive built in.
Summary: I have owned this laptop for a little while. The touchpad is very sensitive, like other reviewers it is an issue. I think mainly because how wide it is. But, I just put an Sandisk 8GB Sd ultra class 10 and am using it for readyboot. It has made a pretty good improvement. This laptop is very hard to upgrade ram. I am running it this way and it seems pretty good.
Summary: I bought this laptop for work and after several months of owning it here are my impressions of it. In terms of external features, this laptop seems to offer a good bit, sporting an HDMI and VGA port, USB 3.0 port, multitouch track pad and a Webcam. Overall, the features are very good for the price you pay for it. Internal's on this laptop are on par with other budget laptops.
Summary: For a price you cant ask any more. I have an i3 model with 500gb HDD. I admit its not the most powerful laptop out there but it does the job. The biggest problem I have ran in to the keyboard, its very poor quality.
