Summary: The purchase price lets you know this is not a high end product, though should be a good value for the $. While the system make-up seemed good, there were several problems with the machine. I returned the laptop to Amazon. The keyboard and mouse were awful. The space bar worked only sometimes, and the keyboard itself was difficult to type on. It seemed you had to press hard and reach for the keys. The mouse pad design and function was the worst I have used in memory.
Summary: I have been using this laptop for over a year now. Started to have a screen flickering issue. Apparently there is a wire/cable that runs across the laptop where the screen is mounted. I thought maybe it was the LCD, screen inverter or maybe the backlight, well it's not - After opening and closing so many times the cable deteriorates and the flickering begins. People are telling me that you need to replace the entire screen to get the cable.
Summary: Overall laptop build and performance is good. But there are two major issues because of that it becomes a no buy 1. It makes too much noise and heats up very fast. 2. Audio output is not audible with all the noise process makes. This can't be called an entertainment laptop if you can't even hear a thing in it.
