Summary: Two months after I got it, I got a blue screen of death after some automatic updates. I had a hard time getting used to it at first, because it is SO different from Windows 7. I missed the START menu greatly. It works better as a touch screen than a desk top.
Summary: My 17-year old loves this machine and has used it daily for 10 months. My teen uses it to play video games, skype, word process, lots of internet surfing, etc. He has done some research and figured out how to increase the memory although he isn't even close to needing to do so.
