Summary: I ordered this at £340 as a replacement for my mother's old Toshiba which had suffered a broken screen. At that price it's a steal! Very high spec for the money I paid, but at the £426 it is as I write this review, I'd say it has a lot of competition, so shop around.
Excellent Laptop but annoying secure boot is an annoying feature
25 April 2013
Summary: Great laptop for price and specs, great if you just want to use windows 8 as a standard and dont have the need to run another OS's or other out of the box discs to boot from as this computer comes standard with secure boot switched on which means its very difficult to boot from any disk that is not...
Summary: Bought laptop for my daughter for college. The internal speakers stopped working after a few days use. She phoned the helpline and after 30 minutes on the phone to them and 2 reboots later it eventually worked.
Summary: This. Laptop has very good specs. for the money and is well put together (ie.sturdy) although aesthetically the black matt plastic finish is a little basic, that can be overlooked at the price.
Summary: Bought this for my mum several months ago. The only thing she's had trouble with is windows 8 as it's not as intuitive to use as Windows 7 was and sometimes jumps around the screen, e.g. randomly deleting text. Very frustrating!
Summary: i cant begin to match any of the other reviews because im no whiz on computers. i dont know enough to give it 5 stars so dont want to give people the wrong message. But 5 stars may be very fair. never used the new windows before, yes its different but you get used to it and its better.
Summary: A quick mention of Windows 8. It is the most appalling system that any developers could have compiled. I could write a book on all it's weaknesses, but I won't. Microsoft should not only be ashamed of themselves but sack everyone in their I.T. development department responsible for Windows 8.
