Love it!


Just bought this laptop last week, got rid of all the unwanted apps and replaced the HDD with a 120 GB SSD... Now, the desktop loads from 5 to 6 seconds, this is an amazing machine.

Nice laptop. Good value for money.


I am happy with my new laptop. It is fast and easy to use it. I am not sure if the processor enhancer to 3,4 GHz works. I just have seen 2,4 GHz speed. It would be better to have better speakers. No complaints, so far.
