Most satisfying buy ever

 

being a girl I always wanted a pink laptop...although the white laptop in the same series and configuration was £49 less than the pink one...I did not hesitate to puchase this one as it left me wtih a feeling for complete satisfaction.

Its is good design and efficient

It comes with alot of pop ups and trials that are really annoying ; I expected the speed of it to be faster since it was one of the better choice. However it is still good
