Summary: I've had mine for a year now and use it mainly with a thumb drive that keeps all of my files and information. There is plenty of memory left on the hard drive. After a day of use, however, I usually have to shut it down or it is lagging terribly. I use it mainly for surfing the internet and Word documents, so nothing that should make a computer lag to this extent.
Summary: It was great for the first year, then monitor started to malfunction. When turned on, half the screen was gray, the other gray striped. When I called it would have cost half as much to have it looked at as to just replace it.
Summary: I have used this laptop for three years - mostly for personal use limited to internet and Office. This laptop does the job. My only complaint is that it heats up extremely hot to the point that it feels dangerous to touch at and near the fan when this laptop is in operation over 8 hours straight. I sometimes leave the laptop on overnight; and the DM1 doesn't tolerate such continuous operation.
This is a great little laptop I bring it with me to my customers to show pic.

Summary: I love this laptop, it's light fast, and clear. I bring it to customers to show pics. from other jobs, and I run my accounting package on it, it's a little slow starting up, but after that it runs very smooth.
Summary: This is a great Notebook/Netbook! I highly recommend this format! This is my 3rd netbook. I usually used them more than my main laptop. This is one is so good, that it is promoted to be the main laptap.
Summary: Using it for about 3 months and loving it. Very fast on win 8.1 , beautiful screen and great battery (4 hours least). With an ssd and 4 gb more ram the computer is silent and lasts longer.Using also bazos tweaker to set cpu profiles helps manage the battery better.
Summary: Got this for my brother. He loves it as it allows him to use the internet at his cabin. Ergonomics are good, display is sharp. It took a bit of tech support to get the 2 years of included T-Mobile service to be recognized (validated) and up and running. 100% improvement over his Intel Atom based laptop (which he promptly gave away)...
Summary: This is a very nice notebook. The sound is even great and it is compact. Does the job very well with many features. Windows 8 has a lot of pluses, once you get used to it. It is worth taking the time to learn. The only reason I did not give 5 stars if because I have not tried the 4 g yet.
