Summary: I wondered if it really had a top of the line processor and then came all the updates. I don't understand how I can have 8, 10, or more updates every time I shut down or start up the computer. However as I start using it more it seems to get faster so I will keep it.
Pros: I7 processor Compact
Cons: Initially ran slow Seems to have short battery life, 4 hours Too many updates
Summary: a little slower than my previous one, but, I had more ram on the other one. this was a cheap alternative to putting off buying a new one. I love the size of this laptop and the convenience. It does have some issues which I think are related to it's age and use not the seller.
Product was defective, but seller is doing an exchange.
7 April 2014
Summary: I was initially upset because I thought the seller had not responded to my problems with the item. He has, in fact, responded and has agreed to accept a return and provide a replacement. More on this later after I receive the replacement item.
