Summary: It seemed like a really good deal for the price, the processor was faster than most at that price and the hard drive was bigger however Windows 8 and 8.1 works well when you have a touch screen and this was not. Navigating was challenging and irritating and I am very computer literate so that wasn't the issue. I signed into Wild Tangent and unleashed the worse malware ever.
Summary: i love this computer. i am a college student. this is my second year having this and i could not find a better computer. only own fall is that the battery tends to die very quickly. i have to charge the battery sometimes 2x a day. and as a college student. very hard to find time to charge it besides at home. i can not find a extended battery either. it says a 6 cell lithium ion battery with 4hrs n 45min of battery life. my battery only lasts for bout 2 hrs max.
Summary: Other than having to learn to use Window 8.1, this laptop is incredible. The screen is bright, excellent for movies and games. The amount of memory is another excellent feature. I find it is a little slow opening a new application, but I believe that is a Windows 8.1 issue.
Summary: Great 17" hunk of laptop. The graphics in this computer are AMD which, is my preferred brand. The photo images on news sites are spectacular. The video on YouTube, Netflix and other video feeds is so bad that I returned this to Walmart after 6 days. I did update the graphics drivers and even made adjustments to the settings believing that it was the card settings. My second issue was the keyboard.
Summary: They didn't carry this model at my local store, which was inconvenient so I had to order online. I had to wait a couple extra days passed the scheduled delivery date for it to get here, I paid extra for it to get here quicker but I just wasted that money for nothing!! Good computer if you are on a budget, it gets the job done, faster than I expected!!
Summary: I absolutely hate Windows 8. It is ruining my experience with having a new computer. I have zero issues with the computer itself. Although I like a challenge, this is not one I care to repeat. I hope Windows 9 will be more like Windows 7. I am only recommending because others say they like Windows 8 and the computer itself is just fine.
