It has features other new laptops in this range don't have

Summary: I only buy laptops from Apple and Lenovo. I love the build quality on both. My daughter needed a new laptop and I didn't want to spend a lot, so I got her this one, because, crazily, one of the reviewers here said he could play WOW on it. I don't know how good what he was smoking was, but if this computer was sentient, it would cringe at the mere thought of WOW. I also got one for a friend of mine who is on hard times, and needs a computer with an optical drive.
Summary: This was a refurbished computer, which I was unaware of when I purchased it. I have had countless issues with its lack of adequate performance. It was bogged down with aftermarket programs that also caused it to run slowly. Constant rebooting needed as it will freeze in the middle of a simple task. And the bottom fell off with no way to reattach, so the computers guts are exposed.
Internet browsing is horribly slow even on a fast connection

Summary: This laptop is unusable for even the most simple tasks. It takes forever to open any application such as Chrome or Word. Boot up time is ridiculous. Internet browsing is horribly slow even on a fast connection. Also Windows 8 is horrible, but you knew that.
