This may have to be the worse device I've ever owned
1 March 2015
Summary: it was good while it lasted, right away I started noticing little flaws. firsts the trackpad would go out from time to time,it would freeze and that wasn't the beginning of it, one day I sat down with my laptop to write an essay and I wouldn't open so I tried not to force it open and be genial with...
Summary: This machine is pretty decent for the money. I originally bought this for starting school in the spring. It was time to retire the old Latitude D520. Pros: Very sleek, lightweight and thin. Something you should definitely look for if you want the ultrabook style, but not the ultrabook price.
Summary: When I bid on mine, I failed to notice that it does NOT have a DVD read/write drive, nor does it have a network port. Fortunately, I have a spare USB external drive. I needed it to load much of my software. The lack of a network port is another problem.
Summary: Didn't have an instruction manual with it. Windows 8 is not easy to use and it wasn't touch screen. Bought as a gift for my daughter who is fairly tech savvy, and she was uncomfortable using it. Returned the item. Seller imposed a 20% restocking fee!
Summary: Bought this for about 400 bucks on special from a big box retailer (hint, the initials are in the model number). Out of the box, the performance is middling at best. The design is nice and sleek, and the laptop is light and easy to carry.
Summary: I love it! I had to do a RAM upgrade (16GB) and install a backlit keyboard (I know it DIDN'T come with one!?) I also install an SSD. Now for less than $400 I have a sleekbook that can play Starcraft 2 on ultra, and is comparable to my friends $1600 Gigabyte Ultrabook. It's still more stylist too!
Summary: This laptop is way beyond my expectation. Before bought this laptop, I had a Dell Inspiron 17R-6472DBK. Since the Dell 17R is so heavy and slow for my daily use, I have to buy a affordable new laptop. I only spend 580 on this one. And the performance is just great. This laptop is thin and light.
