A Very Nice Laptop

 

I bought this for my son-in-law for Christmas and he really likes it. It looks new, is pretty quick and was a good overall deal.

Superb Deal!!

 

random junk was on computer (this is normal). just take 15 mins to remove it all.

Very good for the price!!!very reliable! everything works great! It has a feature on the keyboard to turn off the mouse pad.If you use a mouse you can type with out any problems!I have Linux as well on it for work. NO problems at all!I have before used...

Usb ports are close together so it's difficult to have 2 usb devices in at the same time. but not really a big deal at all

Great first laptop for Jr. High Grad!

 

For the price, this is a great laptop. Boots fast. All the features you would need for basic computing. Webcam. An SD card reader would have been a nice added touch but it's not a deal breaker. The size is perfect. Very portable and light. Only time...

Very nice purchase

 

This is your basic 14" laptop. Nothing special here. Except the price. This is a great value. You'll get exactly three things in the box: a laptop, the charger, and a sheet of paper stating you need to make Windows recovery discs. If you're the sort...

Price, light, n-wireless, feels very peppy despite 5400rpm hdd, hinges seem sturdy, bright crisp screen, no dead pixels, looks brand new, good battery life, no real issues at all. (It will take an 8GB sodimm if you want to replace the 4GB.)

Only two USB, no BT, speakers won't win any awards, a little setup knowledge needed, no recovery/setup discs. A bit of clucky-plastic feel to the touchpad buttons. Didn't care about any of that: perfectly reasonable compromises
