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?
Summary: its an okay laptop. it was slower than I would have liked. The microphone that is built in is terrible. No matter what setting I tried, the other side could not hear me during my Skype calls. They complained that if they could hear me speak, they could also hear tons of background noise. If there was no background noise, they could not hear me speak.The screen was also temperamental and sometimes would flicker or not be able to be seen upon login. I returned it.
