Screen went white after 6 months


Get a laptop with a better track record.

Got it cheap at a big box store, worked well for 6 months (although I hate windows 8)

After 6 months of normal use, booted it up to find a white screen. The computer seemed to be functioning normally and it was just a display issue ; Did some research and found that it's a common problem with this model. Took it apart and reconnected...

Only 2g ram ,means not installing office, Photoshop or any ram demanding program. For upgrading the Ram need to almost take apart mother board since is located under the keyboard, if doing so be veeeeery careful since any extra force will bend, brake...

Not sure about the brand


Very slim and lightweight, has a number pad on the keyboard, very large and workable trackpad, comes with windows 8 for those who are adventurous

Seems to have trouble maintaining itself. After one windows 8 update it wouldn't boot up properly...I had to remove the battery and let it sit for awhile. Then it came up. I began worrying then... and winced everytime I had to shut it down knowing it...

Just Ok


It has a low price and you can tell why. Slow HD doesn't help and abundant use of cheap plastic hammers the point home. I swapped out the HD for a SSD (minor bios tweaks needed) and loaded Linux on it. Works well as a Linux hobby machine which is what...
