Great Laptop!

 

Purchased to replace an old HP dual core I sold. Wanted something smaller but still needed an optical drive. Have had it for a couple of weeks now and experienced zero problems. Did come with some bloatware, but was easy to remove. Ended up keeping...

Great all around PC

 

This computer has so many great aspects to it, a lot of witch I didn't even notice until after I bought the machine. Physically, it's slim, sleek, and beautiful. The screen is vibrant and easy to look at, and the bevel doesn't take up a lot of the...

Affordable Performance

 

Overall this a really good machine for the money. If your looking for portability, performance and on a budget look no further.

Best laptop I've seen

 

The keyboard is just the greatest I've ever felt on a laptop. The keys are nicely separated and have a very pleasant texture and key action. I like it more than most dedicated keyboards. The layout of the keys is nice as well. The machine itself is...

Superb keyboard, great look, fine performance, great feature set
