Has battery troubles


It's a nice computer to work on, for the most part. I wish it came in a smaller size, but you can't win them all. IT'S BATTERY LIFE IS ATROCIOUS. I get about 45 min to an hour out of it. I wish I had paid for the year-long insurance because the battery...

Nothing much, it's pretty average all around

I was looking for a light weight, reasonably powerful laptop computer for my wife as a birthday gift. Those factors were a bit more important than low cost.This product is... A nice compact size, easy to set upAbout me... Comfortable with technology
