Good OS but.....

Phillip P., Newegg
11 May 2015
  • Summary: For $139 dollars one would expect to be able to "own" the OS and be able to use it and upgrate the system. but you can't do that. Linux Mint is free and you can put it on as many computers as you want.
  • Pros: 32 and 64 bit program support
  • Cons: OEM version. Can not upgrade your motherboard or wifi card . Doing so constitutes the PC as a different computer. Cannot reactivate OS legally.

Backside pain

mark t., Newegg
4 April 2015
  • Summary: when I resolve the update issues, I'll retool my review.
  • Pros: good price
  • Cons: having issues with registry errors. update function is cranky. might be virus related. had to hook up with Microsoft to resolve the major issue of: after updates, the OS would not start. Have had to do numerous restores. Also, getting the OS to id my graphics card so I can 3D, has been fruitless.

Hard to get away from M$

David L., Newegg
13 March 2015
  • Pros: Most stable version of Windoze available; I can leave running (standby when not using) for months without problems.
  • Cons: Cost is ridiculous, especially considering that Linux, BSD, and Haiku are free & OS X costs 20 bucks. All these other OS'es are superior to Windoze. I need this to run CAD software; eveything else I use is available free.

WIndows 7 Pro

Scott J., Newegg
21 January 2015
  • Pros: Windows works for most things, even dual screen, and programming.
  • Cons: Windows is slow to load and its programs like Word are also slow. Windows is also more expensive than Linux and prone to BSOD (Blue Screen Of Death). It is difficult to disable features such as Internet Explorer and Media Player, which are just too much trouble to use. Recently, I have noticed th...

Disappointed

David M., Newegg
12 January 2015
  • Summary: It found 188 updates & tried to install them all at once. Thirty or so crashes later, it still can't install IE 9, 10 or 11, but that may be due to my hardware config (AMD A8, no video card yet). Another 8 or so updates don't apply to x64 machines, had to hide them.
  • Pros: It's Windows 7. Product support in effect for a few more years. Lots of eye candy. Lots of software available. Fast.
  • Cons: Glitchy, doesn't update well, still can't fix itself, can't brew coffee

Wireless card is missing

NYCTechie, Amazon
15 January 2014
  • Summary: "Trying to help out my school, I ordered this laptop recently. The good? It arrived 3 days sooner, it's not installed with garbage software, the hardware feels good and strong. The bad? Spent 4 hours of my life only to find out it doesn't have an internal wireless card.

Buyer Beware...

squirreljuice, Amazon
17 October 2013
  • Summary: Just because the page says that it is not a re-install dvd, does not mean that it isn't a reinstall dvd, because I did indeed receive a reinstall dvd. Contact the seller before you buy to verify that what they are selling is the correct item.

Windows 7 is Windows. Nothing more and nothing less.

Jason U., Newegg
4 October 2013
  • Summary: Besides the set backs or delays of downloading the drivers and installing them. Windows is Windows. Windows is still is a single user operating system that tries to be secure by disguising it self with warnings when an installation process is going to be executed or any hardware setting medication.
  • Pros: Its is Windows. What is more expected.
  • Cons: I use Linux for several years and got spoiled that all my hardware works after installation. Windows on the other hand still requires drivers to be installed such as a network interface card. The other problems is as follows. * Provide some unified drivers for all hardware like Linux does. Does n...
