Summary: I am posting this review although I realize that the problem might be specific just to my individual laptop, and not to all laptops of this model. I bought this laptop brand new at the end of August.
Summary: Great laptop so far! Just a few minor issues that I will have to get used to like the NUM LOCK key not having a light so you know if it is on or off and my hands hitting the Control Zone when I am typing which causes other boxes to pop up.
Summary: It runs programs like a champ, but the cons far out weigh the pros.The system runs well for the most part, but I've had problems since week 1 (I've had the laptop for 2 years). I've had issues with wifi, ports not working, the hinges breaking off in the first 2 months!
Summary: REALLY BAD touch pad (as others have said). Still can't figure out house to click to drag. Supposed to come with Windows 7 (per title) and showed up with Windows 8.1 (the OpSys that has killed computer sales, and easy to see why). Son had to leave for college so he was stuck. Look elsewhere.
