Summary: I dont know what all the negative reviews are about, but I paid less than $700 for this laptop on black friday nearly 4 YEARS AGO and I am currently writing this review on that same laptop. This is the first laptop I've ever bought or owned and I am so happy I got it. At first I used for standard uses like school and internet and storing my music collection and later I started using it with FL Studio for music production.
Summary: Hmmm. Mine works fine, running win 7 pro. Does get hot, I use a fan underneath when running intensive. I don't see more probs with this computer than with any I've owned, about 6 so far, 3 laptops. This is the best of the 3 laptops - have a toshiba, compaq and this. I upgraded the hard drive to 500 and also installed a bluetooth. Has a nice pci slot on the side so I installed usb 3.0. Too bad a lot of the computers now aren't coming with pci which is pretty handy.
Summary: I've had this computer for about four years now, and am relatively satisfied with it. It's a bit flimsy, but it holds up. I've had a few issues that I've had to deal with--initially the DVD-RW drive didn't work, so I had to replace it, and ended up replacing the replacement drive, and most notably, the display started to fail on me, so I had to replace that also.
