Summary: Pros: - it does the job, works quite well, with no internet drop; - it's fast (at least 2 months after purchase); boot time is real quick; - it's quite light - even though you'll need to bring the charger with you at any time. And it's rather elegant. - quite a lot of space. Cons: - the keyboard is bad, I have to be careful that every letter is written; - the touchpad, even though not too bad, isn't amazing; - very little battery life: about 1h45 of autonomy - although I...
Summary: Overall, it's okay considering the price but the keypad does not have a good quality in terms of touching/typing, no scrolling function in the touch pad, longer boot time than i expected (of course it's subjective).
Summary: i know it's a refurbished product. But i think they can be better in quality. When I got it, the laptop shell wasn't properly closed together. It's as if someone opened it but didn't bother to check if it's put back together nicely. But the worst thing is that the recovery key button at the side was stuck inside, you couldn't use it. I tried fixing the button, but there was something wrong with the plastic that you couldn't touch the connector properly.
Summary: This purchase was a gift for my 10 year-old daughter. I think it is a great compromise between cost and performance and a decent first laptop for any child or teenager (as long as they don't have hard-core gaming ambitions). The Radeon chip will be just fine for things like Minecraft. The GPU will use some of the RAM, but there is enough left to run 2 or 3 applications at the same time without swapping. Plenty of storage on the 500GB disk.
Summary: Probably my mistake, I thought this was basically the same as the S4 so I expected a touch screen but it is not. Starting from this disappointment did lead me not to appreciate the unit as much as I should. We had difficulty using it for Skype with bad image quality and echo with the sound. It is very light though and I love how portable it is. For the use we are making, the battery life is better than expected.
Summary: This is a good little computer. It's very slim and light. However, the graphics aren't great: everything has a bluish tint. Also, the mouse pad is just ridiculous. Most anywhere you click it, a menu pops up. You have to be very intentional about clicking it very near the bottom if you want to click and highlight text, for example. I would totally recommend this computer for any day-to-day activities, but I would also recommend getting a mouse.
Summary: It is light weight and screen size is nice, but resolution is not fantastic. I would say the most annoying thing is the poor battery life, as I was hoping technology had improved. Something like the ipad blows it away, except that his runs all my software.
