Other Thoughts: I have owned and operated this laptop for a bit over 7 months. I mainly bought it to tune my car from the driver's seat and not have some huge brick to deal with, but I started school FT and now I use it every day. It has been sufficient for most basic programs such as Microsoft Office.
This laptop does leave me wanting more now, such as more drive space, more video capability, and a touchscreen. I will, however, use this until it breaks, so that I can be forced to upgrade.
Knowing what I know now, I would've spent just a bit more for a slightly more powerful laptop., but not bad for $199.
Pros: -read "other thoughts"
Cons: -read "other thoughts"
Other Thoughts: This is in response to Chase B. saying that you cannot install Win 10...I just did about 3 weeks ago. I downloaded it from Microsoft, the 32 bit version, and started over fresh. At first, it didn't fit, but I believe with the SD card I had in there, everything fit fine.
Another weird thing was Win 10 was running extremely sluggish at first, so I was just going to do a fresh install of 8.1, but I installed Bit-Defender's Free edition and everything was fine. I don't understand how installing that made a difference, but I am just going to go with it. I would compare it to a ram upgrade!
I have had -0- problems with this little laptop so far. It still starts up quick and serves its purpose for me- which is for school.
Pros: It does half of what it's supposed to.
Cons: The other half, it fails. The scroll wheel stopped working.
Also, upon opening the package, this thing felt cheap instantly. The plastic feels like it'll break the first time you drop it. The USB dongle receiver is very cheap as well.
Other Thoughts: Newegg basically refunded my purchase without needing me to send it back. Obviously the it's not worth the price to ship.
Newegg is awesome!
