Summary: I have had this laptop for a little over a year and I must say it has been a positive experience overall! I have used high performance software such as Photoshop, Lightroom, Premiere Pro, and After Effects and although it is not lightning fast, it manages to run these programs with no issue. For the price, this is a good value. My biggest issue with this computer is the build quality. The case is honestly trash and it cracked within 6 months of use.
Summary: I bought this laptop before I graduated from High School. I got it from Office Depot for about $570 all together with tax. The employees there said it would be good for gaming so I took their word for it hoping that they would be honest. Well here it is a little more than half a year later and I'm having some troubles with it. Ever since I got it, the mouse pad was always bugging out for some reason I don't know why but it just does.
Summary: Great budget laptop (touchscreen) for the price. With 8 GB RAM and 1 TB HDD, it can do great things. Also it has the DVD-RW drive. It came with Windows 8 but Windows 8.1 update was free. After installing the Classic Shell Windows 7 setup, the laptop boots with classic Windows 7 startup menu and it is a breeze to use. The screen resolution is only 1366x768 and it could have been better. That is the reason for 4 stars rating. Battery appears to be performing as advertised.
Make sure you're getting the correct configuration

Summary: Was very much looking forward to this laptop based on its combination of good specs and great price and I'd love to review it. Unfortunately, Amazon sent me a refurbed laptop with much lower specs (i3-4010u cpu, 500 GB HD, and 4 GB ram). Now I'm unable to return it for a correct replacement because it's out of stock and my only option is a refund. Meanwhile the price for the laptop just jumped up about $80. Oh well.
went from desktop to this and love it. I also wanted something around the $500 ...
