1 out of 5 eggsWould have been great if it kept working

Pros: Great value laptop, the purple color was pretty fun, not bad specs for the price

Cons: stopped working after less than 3 weeks of use.

battery can't be accessed without opening the machine.

Other Thoughts: I'm upset that after a month of use the machine just crapped out. We purchased this as a gift for a friend going back to college for nursing, now she's out of luck. Her ebooks and homework are on the machine and summer classes don't leave much for error. The battery can't be replaced and doesn't seem to be charging. Tried with multiple chargers, all of which were confirmed to work with this laptop before (roommates). Laptop won't even turn on when plugged in. Charging light doesn't turn on, nothing.

Pretty upset that this thing stopped working within such a short amount of time. Feels like a scam at this point.

5 out of 5 eggsboom goes the dynamite

Pros: The price - I got mine for $300 and that's great for a 15 inch laptop. The fact that it comes with 4gb of RAM is also a plus. It's also very quiet - I can just barely hear the CPU fan when it speeds up during gameplay, but only if I make a point to listen for it.

The keyboard is nice. The keys aren't all mashed together like on other laptop keyboards. Each button is spaced out with it's own square hole on the board, and it's a lot easier to type on.

It runs cool and quiet, which is a distinction from my last laptop, which sounded like a jet engine and felt like a radiator when I gamed on it.

Overall a great value on hardware for the price. Just keep in mind what you are getting - a dual core with cheap intel graphics that uses shared RAM. It's not a "gaming" machine by any measure, but it does what I want it to do, and I'm happy with it.

Cons: Nothing so far. The only issues I have had are learning to use Windows 8, which has an abysmal user interface. But that's not the fault of the laptop, that's Microsoft's fault.

Other Thoughts: I replaced the mechanical drive with an SSD and did a fresh install of Windows 8. I got a bunch of UI mods by Stardock that remove the Metro UI and give it a Windows 7 desktop environment. It's much easier to use now.

The integrated graphics are bad, and you won't be playing modern games on this. However I can play Star Trek Online at the lowest possible settings if I also tweak a couple of the in-game troubleshooting settings - like turning off framerate smoothing and turning on the option to slow CPU speed to reduce overheating. I have played 8 hour sessions on STO like this, and it seems to be holding up okay.

I also play a lot of old games from GOG, which this handles stellar. But old DOS games you can play on pretty much anything.
