Summary: So far so good...My first window 8 touch, a lot of earning to do. Computer quite fast but the keyboard is a little flimsy..I am learning this Window 8 as I am used to Apple product and sometime it's a little clumsy moving from one program to another BUT in time, I am sure I will learn and make it better...
Summary: I have had the computer for about a week, and will divide my experience into 3 categories: (1) Software: Like a number of other reviewers, I dislike this operating software. For anyone familiar with the excellent XP, the excellent Windows 7, or some of the other excellent earlier Windows versions, using Windows 8 means starting over again. Translation: Loss of productivity and inability to take advantage of past experience.
Summary: Got it on Black Friday for $280+tax. The very first thing I did was unscrew the bottom panel and swapped in a Samsung 840 SSD (not the 840 Pro). After a few BIOS tweaks, installing a fresh copy of Windows 8 via USB flash drive was smooth sailing. This also means no bloatware, so the system is snappy and responsive. No worries regarding the Intel Pentium processor. While downloading the 3.6GB Windows 8.1 update, the wi-fi connection never dropped, so a good sign there.
Summary: I wanted a reliable computer to be able to watch my videos, fb, play runescape, ect. This fit the ticket as I do not lag at all even at max detail. Only thing I hate is windows 8 doesn't let me use chrome unless in desktop mode. The mouse pad itself is too slippery, which does get on my nerves at times. That and idk wtf is up with the battery but it dies way too early.
Pros: price for a fast touch laptop
Cons: battery life, multiple touches to open a link, internet explorer crashes a lot
Summary: It's a great touch screen laptop I got on cyber Monday and got to do same day pick-up from the local BestBuy but what I didn't like was that it didn't come with product key for Office 2013 and Office 365 Home Premium, all my other laptops that I have bought have came with the product key for activating Microsoft office...
Pros: easy setup
Cons: that it does't come with product key for Office 2013 and Office 365 Home Premium
Summary: It's a nice little laptop. I found the keyboard and screen to be just the right size for having something nice and portable. Also, it seems to have enough horsepower for it's intended use. It will primarily be used for writing and light data analysis in Excel or InfoPath. The good: Small, light and good speed The bad: Battery life. While the battery life may not be ideal, it will get me through what it needs to do.
Good deal...parts costs more than the computer itself...

Summary: Pros There are no problems with this laptop, easy install easy to move around Good deal under $300, quick math give or take on the rough estimate: windows 8 = $100 500 GB laptop hard drive = 70 touch screen = $40 Screen itself = $70 4GB ram = $30 Cheapest CPU you can find = $50 wifi module = $20 if you put everything together yourself, without Power supply / case / UPS shipping / Tax / your valuable time, it will run you about $380...
Summary: I really like this computer. I snagged it during Cyber Monday on Best Buy for a measly 279.99. It was a great deal! So I picked it up today and so far I like it. The design is really nice and I wanted a laptop that wasn't too small or too big so this one fit the bill perfectly. It's 11 inches so if you're not into looking at small screens then, this is not for you. The touch screen is really responsive.
Summary: Please note that rating have to consider both Price and Quality. Bought this laptop on cyber Monday sale for just $270. For that price, I would say this is an awesome laptop. Also, the power adapter provided supports universal voltage (110-240). So we can take to any country and will have no problem. Pro: Price Size/weight 10 figure touch screen Processor - Most of the low end laptop run celeron, but this one has pentium which is better.
Summary: If you're only looking to play movies, listen to Spotify, and browse the internet, then this is a perfect laptop for you. If you want to run hardware intensive programs like Excel, photoshop, or any video editing software, then you should keep looking. PROS: -The overall look and feel of the laptop is great for less than $300. It seems like the hinges are sturdy and the keyboard and screen are made from decently durable materials.
