Great for the price

 

I have had this laptop for over a year which is longer than most laptops I've owned. It used to over heat and shut down, but I got a nice cooling pad and that fixed it. Also upgraded to Windows 7 and you can run XP mode on this laptop, it also doesn't...

Cheaper than most computers

Overheats - fixed

Inexpensive but unreliable.

 

This notebook is a major disappointment. Reliability is poor even though we've always treated this computer gently and used a cooling pad. I sent my daughter off to college with this notebook two months ago and we're now spending many hours trying to...

When it's working, Vista boots and runs with adequate speed. Out-of-the-box setup and wireless performance were fine. It's an attractive package and we thought the screen, keyboard, and controls were OK. Word, Excel, and Firefox run fine

After two months of use, it looks like the file system and disk drive are already failing

great buy. not the best notebook out there but easily beats notebooks in its price range

 

this notebook was one of my best buys ever. i would recommend to anyone. for all those wondering about gaming its got a ati x1270(400mhz gpu & 400mhz mem) with 128mb video ram expandable to a gig. good enough to run most games that are a year old and...

Cheap can usually find it on sale. FAST!!! multitasks like a charm. decent at gaming (can play quake 4 on medium). best storage space for the price. love the shiny blue look. the list goes on

none really. needs a bit more ram but thats upgradeable. case attracts a lot of finger prints. doesn't clean house
