Consumer review (newegg.com)

Great computer but one thing

 

I do have to say its a pretty high powered laptop for the price, packed with the dual core I5. It plays most modern era games with much of an ease. It can multi-task pretty well too, switching between different editing programs is easy

Power is a little limited on the laptop. Keyboard has comepletly stopped working after just having it for a little over a month, touch pad and mouse buttons are unresponsive. Windows 8 has much of a simpler look than Windows 7 did

Good student laptop

 

Good laptop with enough speed to be efficient on applications such as MS Office w/ enough power for multi-tasking

Doesn't come with any free software, just a MS office trial and McAfee trial ; Glossy screen can be reflective at times
