Summary: I bought this for a friend who needed to replace an ancient dying machine. If you are looking for a cheap laptop to watch movies, browse the web, listen to music, and handle documents- this one is capable. No complaints. It works, and looks nice. If you are looking for a machine for gaming and large format image files... then why are you looking at this model? :P I bought a refurbished model for less than $250. A whole laptop for less than one paycheck! Whoo hoo!
Summary: just rec'd this item. Already not happy with it after just 2 hours. It's clumsy to use, comes with a European ac cord. :>( It still has windows 8, :>( but can't do much about that anymore. it's not easy to use. I wish i had not bought it!! Maybe next time I'll just got to a store and try one for an hour or so till I am satisfied.
Summary: The laptop listed skips.. so when you start typing the next letter you typed would be an I but a u or o or some other letter would show up.. also they sent me the battery plug for Europe I am in Seattle.. Standard plug.. I had to buy one and this it skips and the screen is so small.. it would not support any other application to essentially it is only good to play some games with.. buy an abacus,, you would get more use out it.. what a waste of money..
Summary: The laptop itself seems to be ok (bought for wife as gift). Windows 8 is a pain in ass to navagate through. I she would have told me at first how she hated it, I would have probably returned it. I think we will install windows 7 on it.
Summary: I bought this laptop because of the low price but was really disappointed at how slow it is. My 4 yr old desk top pc is probably 3-4 times as fast as this laptop. I wonder if I uninstall a bunch of the unneeded programs if it will speed it up some?
