Windows 8 Ruins It

Philip Nowers, Amazon
28 February 2015
  • Summary: This is probably a fine laptop computer. Unfortunately, it is burdened with Windows 8.1 which is the worst operating system I have encountered in over 30 years of computer experience. Windows 8 is a total dog - slow, clunky, loaded with unwanted "features". It is also loaded with unwanted advertising and commercial product lures that have no place in any operating system. I use my computers as tools not toys, a concept Microsoft seems to have forgotten.

Computer is great, but buzzing noise

Stetson, Amazon
25 February 2015
  • Summary: Just received and already there is a weird internal buzzing noise. May be because it is refurbished, but if it lasts much longer it will drive me crazy and I will have to return it.

Lowered Expectations

Edgar Allen Crandall III, Amazon
14 February 2015
  • Summary: Have been somewhat disappointed by the product. Had to get technical help to fix bugs that were installed on the computer. Feel that the quality of this Lap Top was inferior to my previous Lap Top. The keys are extremely sensitive have to slow considerably down otherwise you get spelling errors. Hopefully the experience will get better. The box also arrived in a beaten up condition and it took 5 days to arrive on a 2 day ship.

Received on Monday, Returned on Wednesday.

MKoz "Faith Under Fire", Amazon

  • Summary: I usually buy laptops knowing that I'll need to do some improvements on it. Adding Ram is on the top of that list. 2nd- getting rid of Windows 8 and replacing it with Windows 7, but that's another story. I was so taken by the price of this laptop that I neglected to check how much Ram I could add to it. This laptop only allows for 8, which is fine. I believe once you "up" the Ram, the speed will be just right for everything this laptop advertises.
