Pros: well built, better then I expected by far. Wanted a good basic computer and it surprised me. I added a 840 samsung 126gb ssd and 8gigs of samsung ram this thing screams. Using windows 7 pro, performance is great. WIn scores 6.7 Processor and video lowest scores, 7.8 ssd and ram.
Cons: Windows 8! Locating drivers for windows 7.
Other Thoughts: Windows 7 go to BIOS boot section disable secure boot. I found good drivers for windows 7 but it was a very frustrating search. I finally broke down an got a free driver update program it worked like a champ. Even updated the drivers I found. Had to load some drivers on a cd to get internet access, from that point it was a snap. Windows 7 will not load unless youi DISABLE SECURE boot in the BIOS.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great laptop super fast after I swapped out the hd with a Samsung 840 128g ssd and swapped out ram to get 8gbs. Feels solid looks great, light weight and cannot beat the price. Running windows 7 pro. WIn scores highs 7.8 both ssd and 8gbs ram, 6.7 for processor & graphics
Cons: Windows 8, sorry I just do not like it. Might be better with a touch screen. Otherwise I see no benifit over win 7. Yes I am old, grummpy and set in my ways. So what I perfer win 7!
Other Thoughts: Windows 7, first go to BIOS boot section DISABLE SECURE BOOT. I searched for drivers for a while, found a few got more then alittle frustrated to say the least in the process. Finally I broke down after being unable to find the last 3 drivers I needed, I downloaded SlimDrivers, free and easy to use. Worked like a champ. Even found better drivers then I did in 2 cases. Running like a scalded dog now. Boot time is crazy fast, I like it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: What's not great about this. Opened the box, hook it up and forget it. Cannot ask for more then that. So far one week plus no dropped connections, no issuses.
Other Thoughts: Worked out of the box with Comcast even! Honestly I was not expecting such a simple install, quite the oppisite. Plus I am not paying Comcast to rent their junk.READ FULL REVIEW
