nice but not the best


I bought this computer because my HP was literally falling apart. The back side had a huge crack and the frame around the screen was coming off. This PC also had a considerably larger amount of GB for the hard drive and RAM. Plus the processor was...

Nice design, enough hard drive space for files, has wondows 7, doesn't have tons of extra apps and things that load automatically like other computer brands

It freezes too much when trying to download large numbers of files. Also the battery life is very short

Excellent computer for the price.


Great laptop for the price

Mainstream laptop. Fast and light. Great color. 4 GB RAM, international warranty and LED back light. New key board design. Quite when on, does not heat up and therefore no need of a laptop fan. Great computer

Wish it could be 13

Extended Warrenty is worthless


Called for the warranty service. They don't cover anything. Complete waste of money. SAVE YOUR MONEY. Don't use the warranty service through NEWEGG or Service Net Warranty LLC. I am a consistant customer of NEWEGG. I always come back. This one...

Good laptop. Good CPU power and nice set up

After 11 months of use. Touch pad is querky, doesn't work all the time. The Headphone jack broke on the inside so it isn't usable with nothing that could have caused it. No didn't leave the headphone jack installed and then bang it on something

Awesome Deal!


So far everything worked right out of the box. Also, the box it was shipped in was very secure.

Decent i3 with a big HDD and 4 gigs of Ram. This is a high quality product for a great price. Newegg is almost always the best place to buy from

The only complaint i have is that when the HDD was formated and windows loaded it was partitioned right down the middle. Not that this is that big of a deal, but for people who dont know how to either change it or work around it it can be
