Summary: But I wish I had. I had a Pavilion Desk Top that lasted 8 years without serving. It ran win XP with SP2.. I'm considering resurrectin it with new software. Unfortunately I bought an Acer laptop for $439. The price was right. It's the OS I can't stand. I has windows 8. The. Latest thing. Take it from me - it doesn't work. I hear win 8.1 is a reversion to XP. But I don't know. It's hard to find.
Summary: I am very pleased. However, if I had known how long it would take to get it I would have opted to send more money. Also the laptop was not wiped when I got it and had all the previous owners Facebook etc on it. So, I had to learn how to set it back to original condition myself.
Summary: I bought this laptop at Walmart 1 week after retiring from HP. What a disappointment! 1. It's SLOW...even with 4GB of memory running Windows7. It's S-L-O-W! 2. There's no PCMCIA slot! No way to any option cards. Who would have thought a laptop would not come with a PCMCIA slot? I didn't, so I never checked before buying. 3. The keys are slippery and flat...not scalloped like on most keyboards.
Summary: My husband puchased a laptop that was loaded with Windows 8. Needless to say it didn't function like previous version of Windows. After listening to him complain and seeing how frustrated he was, I decided to buy a laptop with Windows 7 on it. He has not stopped raving about how much he likes it. He especially likes the way it handles slide shows. If you have stills mixed with videos, when it gets to the video, it plays it. Pretty cool !
