... few attempts at different laptops and this one is perfect for us
23 October 2014
Summary: It took me a few attempts at different laptops and this one is perfect for us. The only thing that's a little difficult to get accustomed to, is the numeric keypad on the right side. Great computer!
Summary: This laptop is performing very well so far, too bad the seller did not send the full 8GB of RAM as advertised, but they did respond and credited me for the missing 4GB of RAM. If the laptop doesn't stop working as some people have said, it will be a very good replacement for my existing old laptop.
Summary: Pretty much what I needed. I stayed with the installed Windows 7 rather than using Windows 8. This is a good basic notebook. It does what I need to do, which is mostly spreadsheets, word processing and web email. Still trying to figure out the touchpad.
Summary: Not a bad little case but if I had to do it all over again I would purchase the Rosewill or Masscool units for a few dollars more.
Pros: Very easy to use, four screws hold the drive to the inside assembly, the metal sides snap into place and can be removed by the touch of a button. Does what it's supposed to.
Cons: Inside tray is made of cheap plastic and doesn't line up properly with the drive screw holes without some effort. Plastic was warped on the one I purchased. But I got it to fit, not a great deal of room inside.
Summary: I added an extra 4GB of memory for fairly cheap, and it made quite a difference. My boot-up takes about 30 seconds.
Pros: - Comes with Windows 7 installed with the option to upgrade to Windows 8 if you want.
Cons: - The track pad isn't the best. It only works about 60% of the time for me. According to other reviews I've seen, the track pad seems to widespread issue. I use a wireless USB mouse, so this wasn't a major probelm for me, but it is a negative
Summary: Arrived with a big hole in the box, I don't think much of the seller. Newegg is making a mistake outsourcing sales to other vendors who don't care about packing sensitive electronics with padding around them...
