Excerpt: Mostly its ok to deal with at its price level but the sound is terrible even compared to my 6 year old Compaq laptop !!! Wish they could get an upgrade for it. The battery gave out within a few months. They ultimately replaced it but as soon as I got it back it started shutting down on me. So send it back again. They replaced the fan and cooling cover. It does get very hot when being used for a while. I will get an HP next time.
