Summary: I am very happy with this. In fact, i gave away my newer laptop containing Win8 and purchased this one. It is a great value for the money. I owned this exact model prior to purchasing the Win8 laptop. After dropping it one too many times, it still ran great but had a problem with screen. I looked and looked for a good deal on this one and found it.
Summary: I brought this product for my 16 year old son. It is to replace his old laptop which was windows xp,it only had 80gb. He saved his allowance money for months. He wanted more space and wanted to upgrade to windows 7. He loves it and is happy. Can't quite compare to others as yet, we just got it. But performance is good so far.
