Summary: Other than for the windows 8 to get used to, this computer runs great! It can play games pretty well, for me the sims 3 series. I really like it. It also showed up a week early and packaged very nicely.
Summary: It was a positive experience.iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii
Summary: $229 at BEST BUY. So, that's over a $100 cheaper. I have a Toshiba Satellite. It runs pretty good, though the sound quality is not as great as I would like. Had very few problems until I dropped it. That's not the computer's fault. Would buy again.
Summary: This laptop works great for what it is. It's not designed for lots of fancy graphics editing or video editing or amazing game play it designed to do all of a computers basic functions efficiently. ( type, Internet , music, videos etc.). I would recommend and USB external drive with this unit to keep the interal hard drive free of clutter because after you put about 250gigs on unit it becomes VERY slow. But it you use and external drive it functions perfectly.
Summary: The laptop does a good job "so far" since we only purchased it on September 21st 2013. The only thing is the mouse is (realy) sensitive hard to get it where you want it without bringing up all that you don't want . Color is good . Windows 8 isn't that bad at all . I would recommend it to someone that wanted a everyday computer but not to someone that wanted to play games on . Good price.
Summary: I bought this as a new school laptop and it works great. The new windows works great with old programs. You just have to go into properties and change your settings to be able to use old programs. This is not a gaming laptop, but great for school.
