Summary: I bought this lap top so I would have some thing to get my work done on and to be able to put job apps in. What I really wanted it for was video games and such it plays most of the ones I want, but it has started glitching out a bit it could be the game or the computer itself. Like the internet some times the computer goes rather fast and other times its slow. Once again it is more than likely the internet. All in all I love this lap top and it is well worth the money.
Summary: The product itself was very good, however the same can't be said about the description. This item as you see states that it has a 80GB Hard Dive , however the full descriptions states 160GB hard drive, after contacting Amazon we found that the 160GB was correct. 2) The description states XP Home edition, not so it came with XP Professional, all very favorable mistakes, however, not stating that there was no power source in the description wasn't.
Summary: I bought it for my daughter. She just wanted to play some of her online games. And it seems to be great for that. She's having a lot of fun with it. It's fast enough for the websites she plays on. Even though there's not a ton of memory, for w...
Summary: This is a great laptop, solid, easy to use, I like that it locks when closed. I didn't find it to be slow as others have said. The keyboard keys are slightly raised, which I liked. The only minor things I didn't like was no numbers pad, so I had to use the numbers across the top, it's a very HEAVY laptop, but worst of all, the battery life was really bad. Two hours max, and it wasn't just my battery, I ordered a backup and it was the same way.
Summary: My 12 yr-old step-son needed a laptop for middle school. I have a Latitude D800 myself, so setting this up for him was all very familiar. It's not a speed demon, doesn't have all the latest and greatest, but for doing homework assignments it is more than adequate. And not being "all that" discourages him from installing web-enabled multiuser games that could get him hacked and leave me cleaning up the mess (he's not a computer geek; I kind of am) I'm a Windows XP fan, so...
Summary: For the most the part I really like it! The thing that bothers me a little is the battery life. Most of the time I have it plugged in. Other than that programs and everything are great for a great price!
will be given to elementary school kids with no worries about failure.
