Excellent multitasking laptotp. 11/19/2013
This is an excellent laptop for the price. Loads fast, is super cool (Never warm to the touch on the bottom), and the screen is excellent size to have it lay on your bed and watch a movie.
The screen resolution is easy on your eyes and the laptop feels like an 800-1000 dollar laptop like another reviewer said.
The laptop comes with a quad core that seems to be able to handle most things I throw at it; while still staying cool and EXTREMELY quiet. I never hear fans or anything turn on.
It's not a gaming laptop however I was able to run Simcity on low settings without a problem.
The sound is really great also.
Overall I would just say this is a perfect laptop for anyone looking to get someone a present or gift this year.
I compared many laptops within 100-150 of this price (350-400) and even though I can't review them all I think this was a great choice.
I know a lot of people are going to not like this laptop due to the missing drive. You have to seperate order a drive for this laptop.
However I'm not going to count that as a con. Spending an additional 50-100 would make this laptop out perform the rest of the laptops within 100 of it's price (Laptops up to 400).
I think one of the con's could possibly be that the laptop didn't come with any factory restore or cd's to boot from if you need to due to malware, etc.
I would recommend creating a restore point right as you get on for the first time.
I personally don't like Norton, the laptop came with internet security and I feel it's a processor hog. Although it wasn't a problem I removed it and got avira.
Other than getting used to the new OS (Windows) I would say this is a perfect laptop for the price.
There really are no con's.
If you are looking for a laptop on a budget to watch movies and play basic games this is your laptop.
No point in spending 350 to 400 for a laptop when this is a steal.
