Summary: works fine for our 5th grader however the transformer is falling apart- its the big square transformer with integrated pop-out-plug. My buddy got one a month later with an improved transformer.
Summary: Great laptop for the price. My old laptop was starting to die on me and I needed something just to pay the bills, surf the net, maybe watch some Netflix. This works great so far. Keep your expectations modest because of what your paying, but it gets the job done. *The update to Windows 8.1 did take a while so the first couple of days were frustrating, but after that, all is good.
Summary: HATE Windows 8 AND 8.1 !! Space bar needs to be nit quite hard in order to register space. Words run on often due to this. Other than that it beats my paperweight HP Pavillion ( 4 motherboards in 5 years ) hands down .
Summary: I'm not a laptop expert, but I enjoy it. the only complaint I have is how close the touch pad is to the keyboard. my palm pads hit it constantly and muck up a LOT while I am typing. it's frustrating, but half my fault for how i set my hands.
Summary: had to take to a friends house to connect to his internet in order to get set up. I have wireless and had to install it but had to be connected to internet to install. Other than that I love it. good speed, and Windows8 is easier to use than I thought it was going to be.
Summary: Bought this to test it out and see if it would run the games I play, does just fine, runs Lord of the rings online just fine,the switch from xp to windows 8 has been allot of learning, but so far like it pretty well.
