Great Laptop for a Great Price 01/14/2014
I bought this laptop just before New Year's when the price was all the way down to $547. This laptop perfectly fits everything I need for college and the games I play at a really good price. I was afraid that when I got it it wouldn't work, however, I was pleasantly surprised to see it did. Plays games like Fallout at high settings very smoothly and it is very fast overall.
The only thing I can really complain about is the keyboard, as someone else mentioned, it is French so a couple of the keys are in a different spot than you would expect which would throw me off, but I have gotten used to it now. My other complaint isn't really about the computer but about Windows 8 in general. It takes a long time for the initial updates to install, however, after all that, it runs really fine. Another problem I ran into with Windows 8 was, if you wanted to make a backup/recovery disc, you MUST do it before you make the free update to Window 8.1 because, for me, it won't recognize the disk in the drive to make a back up disc with.
Overall, this is a really good laptop. Nice size, charges quickly and lasts for a while, everything is clearly labeled. Definitely a good buy if you are in the market for something good for both work and play without being too expensive.
