Unbelievably Amazing

 

Another thing, I haven't had a single crash or melt down or even tiny virus threat, thanks to Panda Security, which is super great fro the price and provides just the essentials with options for more. I got this computer just before windows 8 was...

The battery is still holds at least a 6 hour charge after six years, provided you're just using it for basic tasks like documents and web browsing. Yet, it's still got a decent three hour charge if you're doing intense online gaming, which it supports...

Built in speaker isn't that great, it doesn't get very loud at all, but its a laptop after all! Same with the mic, you have to talk with your voice slightly raised, but it's better than any HP laptop i've used.

Literally the best computer I've ever had.

 

This has been the best computer I've ever had, and I'm honestly afraid if buying a new laptop. Its tech is slowly but surely becoming outdated, but I believe I could have it for at least another three years. (about 10 years total!)

I bought this laptop for around $300 when I graduated high school... I'm now a college graduate and STILL use it as my main computer! - Built to last( I accidentally threw it 6 feet across the room... still works) - Graphics are top notch. (truly shows...

Okay, back when I got it, it had pretty great specs, so bare with me. Over the years, its become bulky, so its heavy compared to new laptops. I've never changed the battery, so now it last about 2 hours. That's not bad, considering how long I've had...

Still Ticking....

 

The only issue is, after years of wear and tear, I can no longer see the Windows 7 key on the bottom of the laptop. It wore off and now I need it. I have no idea if I can get another one seeing as it's been so long.

Two new screens and a few drops later, this laptop is still running really well

The touchpad is very sensitive ; There's no light indicator for number lock or caps lock ; The space bar sticks or you have to press hard on it

So far i am really impressed

 

Newegg was spectacular in shipping this out, came one day earlier than stated. I will be using this mostly for school and will give updates in time when I actually use it more. giving 4 eggs because the wireless wasn't properly connected.

Great looking and sleek laptop. So far it is has been fast and easy to work on. I love the keyboard and touch pad. they work for me

The only problem was when I first started it up there was no wireless. As a reviewer on this list stated his wires were loose, i figured that might be my problem. I looked at the wireless card and it was hangin half way out. popped it in its slott and...

It's a quad core AMD A6 for less than $400...seriously?

 

This laptop never ran Windows in my possession. I immediately installed Linux Mint 13 Cinnamon on the first boot up. Therefore I can't tell you how well Windows runs on it. I can tell you that the BIOS recognized my USB by manufacturer name (which I...

1. It's a $600-$700 laptop (depending on where you find it) for $360. Win ; 2. The processor is above average ; 3. The video card is at least average ; 4. 500GB HDD, 4GB RAM on par with laptop averages ; 5. Runs Linux Mint 13 Cinnamon like a champion ;...

1. Small, permanent nick in the screen. Only noticeable when the screen is off ; 2. Where the keyboard meets the plastic is warped a little bit on the right side. Not noticeable looking down from birds eye, but noticeable if looking at it from a...
