Summary: Very troubled system. The biggest annoyance was issues maintaining WiFi connectivity with our Airport base station, with drop-offs every few seconds to minutes. Came with Win 8, but we tried Win 7, and Ubuntu Linux with little better results, if any. Second annoyance was an inexplicable resistance to starting up at random moments. This was only very occasional, but happened at some of the worst occasions.
Excerpt: First the touch screen died and had to mail it back to manufacturer. Then the computer would not start without removing and reinserting the battery. Then we had to reset the wi fi adapter at least every other day. Then the wi fi adapter died. A true lemon.

I think this laptop is a great deal for what it costs

Summary: I think this laptop is a great deal for what it costs. It has great specs. Well, battery life is just okay. The one downside is that it's not built to be super sturdy. So I would just make sure you don't throw it around and accidentally bang it on things. I've had this for about 10 months now. Still works fine. The battery life has gone down a little, but I think that's to be expected.
Excerpt: The screws continuously fall out of the computer. Put them back in and they fall back out. It will not stay connected to the internet. Computer is poor quality. Staples will not help with issues. Advised to contact the manufacturer. Good luck there.
