Great laptop for my daughter

 

I bought this for my pre-teen daughter about a year ago and it's been perfect for her. The colors are of course the initial draw to it, but it's more than just cute colors. The brushed aluminum pink front makes the color stand out, but also keeps it...

Pink and white colors, build quality seems high, lightweight, runs cool, well spaced keys

Very nice. I really enjoy it. I work in a office and I am always on the laptop. So I love the color, that's my favorite thing about it.

I love that it's pink and white. I am enjoying the screen and the options it comes with, Its a nice size for traveling. I enjoy taking it home and syncing the ipads to it. Enough room to nicely store 60 gigs of music and my pst outlook email archives...

The only problem I have had right now is getting this webcam to work properly. I keep getting a error that another product is using the webcam. But it isn't. I installed Skype, Gmail any application that will allow me to use the web cam but I can't get...

Be ready for a scavenger hunt

 

I would have rated this computer in at 5 eggs had it come equipped for all my needs straight out of the box. Once the driver was updated, the laptop worked like a dream. Despite the initial headache, I would still recommend the computer--I just wish...

I was obviously seduced by the design. I typically don't look for anything high powered since I don't do any gaming. I am a teacher and I needed the notebook strictly to do word processing, excel, e-mail and gchat/skype. This computer offers all of...

This does not come equipped with microsoft office (have a copy ready). Also, Pentium makes great processors, but poor wireless cards. I found out the hard way when I tried to do a skype conference and the wireless failed miserably. Save yourself some...

Never received the lap top.

 

I don't think I will ever buy anything online over $50 that doesn't require at least a signature at pick up.

None, UPS apparently delivered the package to the wrong house (I was sitting by my front door watching the tracking page as the package was scanned "delivered" with the note: Front door.). This was supposed to be a gift for my mother.

This has been a massive headache. UPS sent me back to newegg to start an inquiry, which I did. Newegg asked me to wait 7-10 days for a reply. It's now been 2 weeks and still nothing - not even a reply as to whether the inquiry even began or an update...

wow, pink & big keys

 

i purchased an extra power cord to have in my bag while one at home.

I consider myself blonde non techy kinds person. this so faris faster than my desktop. has large easy to see keys, a plus for me since i cant type and a numeric keypad. makes entering passwords easier. I really like it so far

battery life not nearly what is listed.

Nice!

 

I purchased this notebook to replace my wifes Macbook notebook that had gone out. This is perfect and she is happy! Sound/speaker quality is great, plenty of storage room, I installed 8GB of RAM to make it even faster but it is pretty good stock....

None so far...

My first PC and I love it

 

This is my first PC and I love it, it works great, it's fast and very well priced for the specs it has. I love the color, the contrast of white and pink is very pretty as a girl owner I really like it. The screen is large and the keyboard is also...

Doesn't have a lot of storage but you can always get an external hard drive. Keys are smaller due to the added number pad, about the size of a Mac's. (In fact it looks almost identical to Mac minus the number pad.)
