  • It does the job
    Verified Purchase

    I am a Mac user and have not had a PC for years, but I needed one for some specific tasks... Nothing fancy. This works great and the price was right on, I have not idea of this laptop can stand up to greater usage but for me it feels fast and it looks pretty sleek. The trackpad is really annoying though ( maybe I'm too used to apple product) it feels awful and changing the sensitivity didn't help at all. So I use it with a mouse instead.

  • Exellent bang for the buck.
    Verified Purchase

    The screan is great -nice clarity. THe keyboard allows for finger space (not all pinched up). I am so pleased with the number pad on the right side of the keyboard. The computer is fast, responsive. I purchased for non-gaming purposes, but seems to do well with photoshop etc.

  • Great laptop
    Verified Purchase

    Ordered this for my son's 16th birthday. He absolutely loves it! My computer savvy hubby was so impressed while setting it up he got lap top envy and I went and ordered one for him! So both my guys are thrilled with the features this little computer has, which is quite a lot for the price. Now I'm contemplating getting a third for my 14 yr old daughter. This is a great buy and I would recommend to anyone looking for an economical lap top for homework, simple games, and surfing the web.

    Arrived w/in week. My techno geek friends were pretty impressed with what I got for the money. I did research on Consumer Reports first and this one was in the high middle of the pack. Only Apple was above. That did it for me.
