Very fast for an older computer, esp w/ an SSD, it does everything I need.
5 April 2014
Summary: I bought this computer to write Android phone apps on using Eclipse, and to .NET programming on. This is a decent computer with a large, clear screen, if you install an SSD it's really fast, plenty fast enough for what I need. I'm very happy with this computer.
Summary: I bought the computer as a parts or repair, so I replace the HDD and memory and it's still the highest rated computer I have (windows has a system rating). I took it to work as a work computer and it is a little too fast for that. So far the co-workers who have used it can't believe how fast it is.
It is a great product, and very well worth the money.

Summary: I bought this laptop because I needed a newer one than I had. This one was a one owner, and in a clean environment, and seemed feasibly priced. I don't have any dislikes at this time. It operates well, and has all of the features I wanted in a laptop. It integrates well with what I use it for. I was using a Toshiba, which was also a good laptop, but I like this one better.
Summary: the laptop is awesome, and is great for gaming. it has a large hard drive, and a large screen. the mouspad is offset from the center by about an inch, so I would recommend a wireless mouse of some sort. other then that, its a great computer.
Summary: I've had this laptop since July 2013. Most of the software I use for work (automotive dealership)is not compatible with windows 8 but I still need a great processor. It's larger than I wanted but it's not hateful. I carry it between jobs in a laptop bookbag. My computer is often the only one that works for me. Very pleased. I haven't even touched all the features yet.
Summary: The battery design can sometimes feel weird when using the laptop on your lap as it can feel uncomfortable with the battery sitting on your lap, but while sitting on a desk it curves the keyboard to make it more comfortable to use as it tilts the keyboard toward the user to make it easier to type. The keyboard itself is nice and sleek with the keys and it can make typing faster and more precise.
Pros: Clear screen, barely any bloatware that came with the laptop. I got this laptop August 28, 2012 and today this laptop does not slowdown for anything. The performance is excellent for doing almost anything and I have gotten the battery to last 9 - 10 hours off a full charge using power saver mode.
Cons: The only downside is that this computer doesn't have a dedicated graphics card. The graphics run from the processor itself and sometimes doesn't stabilize the FPS, but for just on-board graphics simply running from the CPU itself, the game performance surprised me. I can run Minecraft at 60 on max settings, and some 1st person shooter games vary by game.
