Summary: I seriously love this computer. It's super easy to use and I really like the set up with the apps and such. It's also really light, which is another reason I purchased it. I'm only using it for personal use, so I don't get any lag really. I wasn't sure if I wanted/needed or would even use the touch screen, but I do use it and I really like it. It makes it kind of fun.
Meets my usage requirements but does not have disc drive

Summary: This little laptop absolutely does everything I use a computer for (personal finance, word docs, spreadsheets, surfing the net etc) but I was surprised that it does not have a disc drive. Had I known that, I might have chosen a different machine that HAS a drive. (We have a lot of music on cds that I want to download to my computer.
Awesome. My laptop came in 1 day and I payed for prime free 2 day delivery.

Summary: Touch Screen , Display and Audio work great. Perfect for Windows 8, which comes with an updated 8.1 for free. If you want your desktop mode to function like Windows 7 or earlier, Google Classic Shell and download it. There are videos on youtube for full instructions. Type in Make Windows 8 like Windows 7. It is free. You can donate if you want to. Doesn't come with a dvd or blue ray drive. I have a dvd drive with a VLC player that my friend downloaded for me.
Summary: This laptop is perfect for what I need - small, light, low cost computing. I am a freelance photographer and I submit photos after a shoot to the newspaper. My old laptop is several years old, heavy, hot and a little sluggish. This laptop, although not as highly polished or expensive as a MacBook, does what I need, runs well (after I uninstalled the various bits of trial software that come pre-installed) and upgraded to Windows 8.1.
