Summary: I ordered this on a Thursday and received it the next day It is easy to start up and I have found it easy learn my way around both the touch screen and Windows 8 . I had a technician help me with security and he told me this laptop is a very good buy. I recommend it highly.
Summary: This is a great entry level computer. After customizing the unit I have found some things to consider: I have noticed the on board speakers are not the best but work. No bass and barely any mid-range. Funny thing is I attached a set of headphones and they sound great. So either hook up a set of external speakers or use headsets.
Summary: Picked this up as a gift for my daughter, for whom this is her first. With strong initial specs, Windows 8 and lots of room for upgrades, this PC is a winner at under $300. The first thing I did was upgrade the memory from the standard 4gb to 16gb using G. Skill DDR3 modules, which I'm sure will be of good use given her propensity for gaming. But even without the upgrade, this is a solid laptop for students, or as a family home PC.
