You get what you pay for.

hydrofarmer, Amazon
1 July 2015
  • Summary: You get what you pay for. It is only used at my business for running quickbooks and it does that just fine. Besides minor web browsing and maybe an office application here or there, you would be better off saving more money and buying a higher grade laptop. The display is fair.

Excellent budget notebook

Joshua D. Washburn "jwashbur", Amazon
7 April 2014
  • Summary: This laptop has been great for our school. We purchased 8 nearly identical to this model. All of them are still running great, now with Windows 8.1. The only negative thing I would say is that I don't like how the hard drive and RAM are very difficult to access.

Great for class

Jack Kerr, Amazon
30 March 2014
  • Summary: This lovely little thing is super portable and light weight. The headphone jack and power outlet are on the sides, which is a little inconvenient, and it comes running Windows 8. It makes a great class computer, because it can run things like word and chrome. It isn't powerful enough to run Netflix.

Better once i put Lubuntu on it.

MichaelSeebach, Amazon

  • Summary: I grabbed this from warehouse deals where it was obviously returned by an unsatisfied user. With the somewhat limited processor Windows 8 felt fairly crippled. The AMD APU helped make up for the slow processor when it came to playing high definition video so the laptop was okay.

This Computer is a POS

Shaanon Lindauer "Shaanon M. Lindauer", Amazon

  • Summary: Yeah, you get what you pay for, it's true. However, this computer's keyboard only works intermittently and it couldn't be any slower in processing activities. I really feel like I wasted my money on this POS. I can hardly use it.

Happiness

Jay Pande, Amazon
6 February 2015
  • Summary: Great laptop for everyday use. Updated to win 8.1 in no time. Works like charm. 5 stars all the way to the seller for delivering next day although it was a standard delivery. Best of all the bargain price of £189 for a brand new machine.

Think twice

L, Amazon
28 November 2013
  • Summary: I have never written any review on Amazon before, but I felt so compelled to do so for this horrible little laptop. Even typing this review I need to punch the space bar with my index finger between each word in order for it to avoid grouping all the words together and the track-pad randomly loses...

NOT ONE FOR THE LADS

Robbo, Amazon
22 January 2013
  • Summary: Good functional laptop despite its effeminate aesthetics. I would be reluctant to take this model to my public library though is great for home use.
