Summary: This is a fairly good, bare bones laptop. It comes loaded with a windows 8 operating system which isn't really made for non-touch screen devices but I got used to it fairly quickly and there a lots of free apps available in the store (which comes bookmarked on the start menu) which is nice. There isn't really any software so you'll need to either download freeware like open office or buy something.
Summary: Meh...but cheap. I bought this so that I could sit on the couch and surf internet with a larger screen than iPad was offering. The reviews at the time in late July 2014 were mostly positive and it was the best selling laptop with almost 4 star review...The first thing I can say for positive is that the laptop is very light- makes it really portable..this with a relatively clear screen is a bonus. Now the graphics are not HD..

Summary: I've always sworn by dell. My very first laptop was a dell and it never failed me. It was stubborn as hell, no amount of dust or slipping to the ground phased it. It worked super fast and got the job done. So with this new order, all the upgrades and windows 8 really caught my eye and I got this for the long haul. I am not ultra tech savvy but I can tell when it works slow!
Summary: I find the keyboard to be stiff and backlighting would be good. You have to hit each key on top and firm for it to work, especially the space key. The computer has locked up on me several times and I have to turn it off and restart. When this happens nothing works except for the cursor. Seems slow for the system included, I know it is not a game computer, but I hoped for a little faster computer. The touch screen is great, the first one I have ever used.
