great machine

Dick, Newegg
24 May 2014
  • Summary: I upped the memory to 16 Gig and replaced the Hard Drive with a Samsung 750 Gig SSD. Made a fast machine just a little bit faster. No problems with the original drive I just had $400 burning a hole in my pocket. I use it a lot for AutoCAD. finds and loads big DWG's in 2-3 seconds.
  • Pros: very fast great screen, haven't found anything it can't do. Barely gets warm in use.
  • Cons: Wi-Fi adapter locks up and has to be reset frequently while surfing the web. I keep hoping Intel will come up with a new driver, but it hasn't happened yet.

  • Pros: Fast & Light
  • Cons: I miss the built-in DVD burner on my older H-P notebook. I now have to carry around an external burner....but not all the time.

Second beast I have ever owned

TheDreamWatcher, Newegg
16 February 2014
  • Summary: I replaced an HP Laptop with Windows 8 with this laptop. My original one cost less and had more but this is by far the better computer. The speed of the system is great. A three year battery warranty another plus feature. Extra built in security. Windows 7 Professional. I used the original one for a month and never once was able to accomplish my work tasks without it taking three times as long. I was up and running with this computer the next day!!!
  • Pros: The absolute best feature was not having to uninstall a lot of junk from the computer. This computer was clean. Typically I buy custom built, but the price and speed of receiving this model made it my choice. I did not realize that this really was a Business Computer. How very nice to even be asked if I wanted to install the Norton that was available instead of having to uninstall it and many others after getting it set up.
  • Cons: My mistake entirely. I did not notice that there was not an optical drive in the system. That being said, I only had two or three programs that I needed to install from a disk and I just borrowed a usb external drive to do so. This is the only CON I have seen. Great computer and I will not be upgrading it to the Windows 8 - even though it came with it.
