Not living up to sadly lowered expectations

Gothamesque, Amazon
17 August 2015
  • Summary: Afraid this laptop has not lived up to even what could be described as reasonably lowered expectations. Could have easily put up with the plastic feel and build of the entire laptop but the overall performance has been abysmal and disappointing.

Disappointing

Noelgasm, Amazon
28 May 2013
  • Summary: I recently purchased this item, yes it looks pretty and well thought through. But personally I think Windows 8 is a massive mistake. I would describe it as a load of wank. It is incredibly confusing to use and completely counter intuitive. Especially when it comes to downloads.

good screen but poor keyboard and touch pad

ramraj, Amazon
16 May 2013
  • Summary: I bought this laptop from one sale a day. It looks well built, screen size is enormous. Screen is bright. Charge holds for more than 3 hours while working. But the keyboard has issues. The space bar does not space unless you hit it in the center hard.

Hate this thing

  • Summary: Thirty days after buying it, the spacebar stopped working. Apparently this is a common problem with these notebooks and I am unable to find a fix.

I Thought it Would Be Great . . . . . But Alas.

You've Got To Check It Out, Amazon
23 December 2012
  • Summary: First the Good: * It's light & thin, easy to carry around. * It's got a better than average CPU Chip. Now the Not So Good: * No doors on the bottom to access the RAM or the Hard Drive. You have to unscrew & unclip the entire bottom of the machine to get to the HDD.
