Summary: Nice choice for the money. I wasn't happy about the choice of colors ; I was hoping for something maybe silver??? Not to happy about the mouse pad, still trying to figure it out. I like have the nice speakers though, they rock!!!
Summary: A big laptop so get acquainted with its weight and size, but good for multitasking when it is not lagging, even with 8 gb of ram, i still got into lagging, could be because it is 64bits, but with i7, 2gb graphic cards and 8gb of RAM, THIS SHOULDNT BE A PROLEM, Still further OBSERVE.......
Summary: Nice big screen, which was my primary requirement (for watching video). And good price. However, Windows 8 sucks, the mouse pad is terrible, my wifi connection gets dropped at least once every time I use it (which the Toshiba Netbook I used to have rarely did with the same hotspot) and the battery...
I would not buy another laptop with this keyboard layout and Windows 8, they both make this difficult for me to reccommend.

Summary: I like most everything about this laptop except the Windows 8 and the Cloud. Why did they put the home button where the delete is on most other key boards? I find I miss having an insert button too. I do like the speed of the processor. It's my first AMD.
Summary: After waiting over a week to receive my new computer, I was anxious to get it up and running. To my dismay, I discovered that it was infected with 2 nasty viruses and it cost me an additional $150 to have the unit fully scrubbed and ready to be used.
Pros: it provided the desired windows 7
Cons: could be a used computer? 2 viruses on the machine is definitely not good.
Summary: Right out to the box, this turned out to be slower and almost as glitchy as my 5 year old i3 8gb Acer. I gave it 6 weeks and things did not improve. It freezes often while merely word processing or using Photoshop.
Pros: sound/volume is pretty good battery life is decent
Cons: slow glitchy freezes. poor keyboard and trackpad
