Summary: I bought this for my wife about 3 years ago. It's just not holding up to daily use. The power supply has been replaced. I'm on the 3rd battery for it. And even when the battery is fresh it doesn't last very long before draining completely. I've had to reinstall Windows twice due to hard drive failures. The screen has held up well as have the hinges, but the rest of the machine is falling apart.
Summary: I purchased this laptop about a month ago to replace an old eMachine computer desktop.I was pretty impressed by the speed and the power the i3 core had. I really don't care for Windows 8 that much but all in all still a great laptop. I can run my music programs with no problem without a pause or freezing up so all in all a pretty good laptop I would recommend.

Summary: I'm a high school student who takes college level courses and i need to use really heavy running programs like photoshop ect. ect. ect. and this laptop runs flawless any time of the day. the battery life is decent and Ive put this thing threw hell, with dropping it and rolling over on it. and when when the screen cracked( which mine did, due to my fault not the computer it self) it takes less then 5 minutes to replace.
Summary: I bought this laptop about a year and a half ago refurbished. I am still using it today. the hdd fried the day after my warranty expired, which was sad, but I replaced it with a better one for $40 on ebay. I also upgraded the apu from the original A6 to an A10 4600 for around $40. I also had to replace the fan. All told I'd say I've been pretty happy with it considering the price.
