bummed.

  • 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.

Poor Performance

  • Summary: Do not get taken in by the specs on paper. The real-world performance of this laptop is surprisingly bad. Bought this from another site. It was the model with the dual graphics AMD 8650. Theoretically this should have been a top-end laptop with blazing fast speed.

Cheap

  • Summary: Let me just start by saying that I was a macbook person and the only reason I switched to a PC is because I needed the money (from selling my mac) and I wanted to play games. That being said, my mac played games better than this computer.

  • Summary: Bought the same laptop previously from Best Buy, and didn't have any issues with it, but not sure if it's Windows 8, that's the problem. Every video buffers like another program is running.

Disappointed

Alaska, Amazon
12 May 2014
  • Summary: I was actually really disappointed with this lap top even though I've tried to give it time to get used to it. I was very excited to be getting a new computer as my old one was on it's way out. This one had so much better specs, but it's not nearly as good as my last laptop.

Slow slow slow. I should have gone for a better one.

  • Summary: I bought this for my daughter to use in High school. When I opened it, I was shocked at how slow it was. 15 seconds to open a browser. I when through and uninstalled McAffee and installed Norton. Better, but still horribly slow.

Very slow - can't stream video

Amazon
27 March 2014
  • Summary: I'm surprised at how bogged down this computer gets with what I would consider typical tasks. Streaming videos at HD causes the video and audio to get out of sync. I have to drop the video quality lower than HD to get it to run smoothly.

Low Quality

Dave, Amazon

  • Summary: I've owned this laptop for about six months for light computing purposes. This laptop is mainly used as a portable machine for school purposes such as Microsoft Word, Powerpoint, .pdf files, and so on. Nothing heavy. I did my research.

Not Worth the Bother

S. Daniels, Amazon
4 January 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this computer to "surf" the web so that my more important work computer could be kept offline thus avoiding to have an emergency virus removal session and miss work. Well I have to say, too bad I bought this on-line, because if I had bought it from a store where I could try it out first,...
