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.
