Summary: I bought this laptop to run some legacy engineering CAD software that wouldn't play well on Windows 8 machines and wasn't compatible with my MacBook; I don't use it for gaming, or for Internet access other than to update. That said, this machine suits my purposes and I am happy with it.
Good laptop, pretty good keyboard, reportedly good tech support

Summary: 4 stars, 04-2015, apx 470USD, Win 7 (thanksbetogott), Core i5 1.7/2.2, 500GB HD, x64 bit, DVD drive, but not WiDi (see S and P series lines for that feature). Good laptop, pretty good keyboard, reportedly good tech support (not yet tested). New battery lasts at least 6 hours. Ease of access options work as designed, unlike on the Dell Inspiron loaded with the hated Win 8. I am happy with it (but the night is young). HOWEVER....
Good Basic pc. Not lighting fast but gets the job done.

Summary: Good basic PC if you are wanting to surf the web and watch movies and check Emails. Not lighting fast but does what I need it to. If you don't want to spend a lot of money, this would be the one for you. Plenty of storage space, plenty of ram 4 MB. Lags slightly but not enough to slow you down. One other thing about this Laptop, it has a great picture when viewing. Best I have seen. Something else about this laptop. You might want to get you some cheap speakers for it.
Summary: Good for the money. It had MALEWARE on it which made windows start up again about 5 seconds everytime I shut it down. After I downloaded a program to remove the malware it worked fine. I turned off the automatic updating before getting on internet to avoid tying up the laptop with over a year's worth of updates. It has 2014 software. I updated it bit by bit then. The mouse pad is a bit small, but works ok. The space key does not work well.
Excerpt: For the price, it cannot be beaten. It has all the bells and whistles for under $300 (shipped). I'm am very satisfied the product. The only feedback is the material of the laptop easily get smudges. The Laptop can look unattractive and greasy. So I constantly cleans it ... All the time.
The computer itself is fine, but the Windows 8 really is irritating

Summary: The computer itself is fine, but the Windows 8 really is irritating, and I'm not super picky about that kind of stuff. I can't even get to the dang calculator in a fast or logical way. I just wish it had come with the previous version of Windows, but I'm just going to switch to Ubuntu because it's free. The only other thing I dislike about this computer is that the power cord sticks straight out of the computer instead of having a 90 degree bend.

After I received the laptop signed in Microsoft account I got blank screen and I was not able to get out the blank screen , I could not find much help on the internet and contacted the seller he could not help either.
