Summary: I have just bought this laptop two days ago. The battery lasts only 1 hour 40 minutes and, therefore, I will return it. Other than that it seems fine. It's true that I didn't have time to check all its possibilities in so short time, but the poor battery is annoying. I expected 4 hours, but it's even less then half for a brand new product. I don't like widows 8, but I don't blame the computer for this.
Summary: I would recommend buying a dell / apple laptops which are durable. I had lenovo before where the motherboard got corrupted and the laptop became useless. I promised myself not to buy lenovo ever but again i got caught up by the cheap product 279 with a decent configration and a touch screen which doesn't come in this price range. Opened the box, called on skype and after 15 minutes the camera stopped working. I am going to return the laptop soon.
Summary: Could be a wonderful laptop - light, quiet, fast, compact, if it were not for the fact that I have had TWO of these laptops sent to me by Amazon.co.uk. Problem with first - Hashtag key did not work (at all) and the Backspace button only intermittently. Kudos to Amazon they sent a replacement overnight and I opened it to find (pretty much) the same problem - hashtag button not working + the Backslash button.
Summary: There was a fault on the key board several keys not recording. I returned the laptop to Argos who exchanged it with no trouble. The replacement had the same keyboard fault I returned to Argos and received a full refund.
