Summary: Got this for my wife for Christmas, 2012, and she loves it. I have the 855, but then, I actually work with mine - she uses hers to keep budget, emails, etc. A nice computer at a nice price, and be sure to get the accidental coverage with it.
Summary: I bought this computer over a year ago, and its still working. So I say thats enough reason to get it. I haven't had a single problem. And I travel ALOT so this computer has been through the ringer and its survived. I love the screen size, its great for watching movies. I'm not a techy kinda person, so I can't spout if its good techy wise. But i like i and haven't had any problems. So that makes it 5 stars in my book.
Summary: I bought this laptop a year ago and haven't had any issues. I use it for school, streaming movies to my tv via hdmi cable, and gaming. I really like how light weight it is and the picture quality. The only complaint I have is the cheap feel of the keyboard.
Summary: I have always been a fan of AMD powered computers and this one is no exception, works great as an all round home laptop, shows movies with out any issues, I upgraded the memory to 8 gigs and it works great and never runs low on memory. The problem with this laptop though is that the rubber feet below the laptop are not secured properly and easily comes off. Be sure to notice when it drops off or you will have the feet missing after a while.
Summary: I bought this laptop and I have not problems with it. It is nice with a big screen and the RAM and hard disk are good. When you buy this for first time you may charge the battery for a long time, so do not panic if the battery icon does not move in a short time. I was sad when I saw that the computer was plugged in and the battery did not start to charge, give it a time.
