Summary: Bought this as a replacement that cost the same amount 4 years ago and this one is much better. The speed, memory and graphics are great for a "Basic" laptop, it is lighter, build quality is good with a great keyboard.
Summary: Powerful laptop especially for the price. The huge 1TB hard drive is very useful, however I have an external hard drive which keeps the laptop clear from all of the music, documents etc. Purchased for my dad who uses it mainly for work purposes. It's lightweight and the battery life is quite good too.
Summary: Ordered this laptop for speed, overall looks & the price. I am very satisfied with everything this laptop has to offer , the one little thing that is irritating at times is the click when wanting to do something , i have to click a second time it seems a little firmer by hitting the main pad.But aside from this & the fact of getting used to windows 8 which at times is a little maddening this laptop is an excellent machine.Recommend.
Summary: I've owned this computer for a couple of weeks now. It performs adequately, but does not blow any socks off. For and I5 unit, it boots slowly even with all bloatware removed. Battery life is disappointing.
Summary: Powerful and fast with tons of memory. Use this as replacement desktop with HDMI connection to monitor and wireless keyboard + mouse. Unit is ergonomically designed for productivity with great graphics. Suitable as portable office unit on the road. Great buy!
