Great upgrade from smaller computer!


I bought this computer for my freshman year of college, and I am extremely satisfied with it! This computer has an above average battery life, a very clear screen, and is a bargain for the price they have it as. The web cam responds very quickly, but...

The computer responds quickly to everything, great to watch videos on, and starts up very quickly

It is hard to find a case that fits this laptop and not good for games

Good solid system


This is an excellent 11.6", touchscreen, 2in1 system. Initial set up is quick and easy....though I continue to dislike Microsoft's emphasis on using your Microsoft Live ID to sign into the system under Win8. (You can work around that...but it's a pain...

price, size and form factor, reasonable speed, quad core processor

keyboard keys require firm strike, minor software bugs with touch screen

Great Desktop Replacement


OK, I just exchanged the AMD version of this laptop build. At $329 the Intel version wins. Not so sure at the $379 price point on the AMD build. So far, this laptop is a bit faster doing what I do in my business. Mostly tabbed browsing, FTP, GIMP, and...

Very Nice at a Great Price


Bought this laptop specifically to run Adobe Color Suite 6. I expanded memory to the full 8GB and this thing smokes. I accidentally opened 25 50+MB files at once in Photoshop. I just let it run and was very happy with the speed that it opened the...

Awesome PC and Price


This computer is used for business and it is plenty fast enough - I have multiple windows and tabs open all day and it's super fast. If you plan to use it a lot like I do, I would recommend upgrading the memory. I upgraded to 8gb and it's super fast....

BIG screen - full size keyboard with number pad - fast and upgradable memory

This is a BIG laptop and meant to be a desktop replacement - this is what I wanted, but be aware of what you're buying
