  • Summary: I like this laptop, my only issues are my web browsers. I have all the major ones and sometimes I get to check my internet connection even though I am connected to WIFI. So I have to switch between them.
  • Pros: 15.6" Touchscreen, Windows 8

Good value laptop.

  • Summary: It has some minor flaws but no deal breakers. Definitely not made to play games but can probably run Skyrim at low. Got it on cyber Monday for $399 with a $25 rebate which is an amazing price. Thanks Newegg!!

Certainly not for intense 3D gaming, but touch screen feature adds extra fun experience for games on MS app stores which unable to enjoy with traditional keyboard/mouse/touchpad.

  • Excerpt: Появилась необходимость купить новый ноут.
  • Pros: Тонкий, удобная клавиатура, долго держит заряд, есть SSD, матовый экран, дискретное видео, тихая работа, невысокая цена, хорошее покрытие корпуса как внутри, так иснаружи - не остается отпечатков. Есть возможность отката Windows к первоначальному состоянию.
  • Cons: Слабая матрица (характерно для всех бюджетных ноутов), большой (не влез в стандартную сумку для ноута, неособо громкие динамики
