Summary: Pretty happy with this computer, one complaint -- the touchpad is poorly installed, the bottom right corner of it sticks up above the normal surface of the computer. So buyer beware of that. Otherwise it does everything I need it to, good purchase.
Summary: Got it on Ebay second hand for $450USD. I am a canadian buyer so it worked out to be $6xx plus I need to pick up at point roberts. Fresh out of the box I put in a 8gb ram , adds up to 12gb ram. with that 12gb ram it runs pretty fast . (though the spec said ram not expandable, it's not true) The next thing I also put in a ssd and it flies. Love it. run smooth. Two things I do not like is . there is no dedicated graphic card and also no HD screen.
Summary: Awesome laptop for many purposes, but I have to restart the wireless adapter because it stops working, also the touchpad is really bad and unresponsive I prefer using the touchscreen. The laptop itself feels responsive and the speakers are really good. From the back side of the laptop feels like its going to break apart.
Excerpt: I Wanted one in the I7 configuration for a while now. I Have the I5 version and was happy with it. The I7 went on sale so I pulled the trigger. Not a real noticible difference in performance between the i5 and i7. Exterior is nicer on the i7 configuration. If you can get the i5 version for less money you will be more than satisfied with the performance.
Great touch screen laptop kills two birds with one stone
26 February 2015
Summary: Great touch screen laptop kills two birds with one stone. Only drawback is that there is no Dvd drive. I know, downloads are the way of the world, but sometimes it's nice to be able to pop in a D&D for the kids!
Summary: I would definitely buy again but it can be improved. I bought this Laptop on Black Friday for around $700 with the idea of running software that needed great processing and graphics requirements. I works for me but these are my 2 cents. PROS: - 12 GB ram memory - Pentium 7 4th Gen. - Great graphics and processing power. - Good Cam. - 1TB HD is plenty for me. CONS: - No DVD,CD or Blue Ray - Touch pad is non responsive.
Excerpt: I purchased this computer approximately one month ago, and so far, I have been pleased with my purchase. Getting used to Windows 8 has been the most difficult challenge, but it hasn't been too bad. The only other negative I feel worth mentioning is that there is no CD/DVD drive. It's not a huge deal in today's society because many things are downloads with activation keys; however, I do have a few programs to install that are on CD-ROM.
