Consumer review by: Jim Wildes (newegg.com)

Not bad

 

I had to buy a copy of Windows 8 for this laptop because the pre-installed OS didn't work. The product didn't have any detailed information about the OS. On the bottom of it there was Win 8 logo sticker but No authentication sticker was present.

One of thinnest laptops ; One of RAM Banks is user accessible ; Easy ssd upgrade ; SSD can be installed either in SATA bay or mSATA port

Non touch screen ; The other RAM bank is not accessible ; The installed Windows 8 didn't work(already registered by other use) ; Price was dropped by 75 bucks after purchase
