  • Summary: You are given the option of using the Windows 8 aps or the traditional desktop. I chose the traditional desktop. The problem is, on the traditional desktop the computer reacts to the mouse movement as if you are on the aps desktop. For instance when you move your mouse to the right side of the screen it thinks you are swiping something. If you put your mouse at the top of the screen it puts you into an ap from the other desktop.

  • Summary: I did the hectic wait in line for Black Friday, I mean Black Thursday. Waited for 5 hours. At least we didn't have to wait outside. Testing the product with only 2 gig memory. I like that it came with Windows 8. I decided to purchase more memory. Realized it only had one slot. I upgraded to 8 gig bytes memory. It's alittle faster, but at times, not always, tends to feel alittle sluggish on the videos.

  • Summary: Pleased with the laptop. Reviews had stated Windows 8 was hard to negotiate but I found it ok. However it recommended downloading Windows 8.1 which I did but started having a few problems with internet connection, not to bad now but I would advise think twice about downloading this.

Good but ...

  • Summary: Good laptop with a few drawbacks. Firstly, Win8 is an absolute pain. It may be OK for a tablet but is inconvenent for a laptop. The firsrt thing I did was run Classic Shell to revert to a more familiar Win7 interface. Secondly, it only comes with 2Mb RAM which is far too small for the machine to operate at an acceptable speed.

  • Summary: purchased this laptop after my other one got damaged and boy what a difference - my old cq58 was windows 7 this one is windows 8 it was a nightmare to start with getting use to the navigation (still annoying when playing a game and it drags the menu bar on screen for no reason) but the machine does all the tasks required without to many problems and the battery is more robust so all in all a good purchase
