Style Name: Celeron B830, 4GB, 750GB HDD Verified Purchase
5 months on from purchase I can still throughly recommend this laptop. It has taken a hell of a bashing (in use not physical abuse) from my 14-year-old son and it is still fast, has plenty of capacity, is fast at tasks and is structurally sound. When we first bought it we were a little apprehensive given that some reviews said it may not handle high-end gaming; actually it wasn't purchased for that purpose but said teenager has not complained once about slow speeds on the very odd sci-fi games that he favours. More importantly it is speedy with homework tasks and office applications, the screen is crystal clear, and the hard disc nowhere near being gummed up with all the teenage detritus with which such machines are forced to cope. If you want a criticism (which also goes with 90% of all laptops) it is that the sound of the speakers is not adequate to fill a room space when playing a film on DVD - however it is cheap and simple to get amplified speaker systems for under £20 that do the job admirably, just plug them in to the headphone socket, or connect via Bluetooth.
This laptop has been an excellent purchase. Steve Riches, Northampton, UK.

I generally bought this laptop for programming (I bought from PCWorld though) and it is very good at it.
It has 4GB RAM but is Upgrade-able to 8GB.
The setup was probably the simplest I've ever had to do... You turn on the laptop, windows 8 configuration loads up.. really clean, simple, easy to go through.. You'll be on Windows 8 within like 2 minutes.
Windows 8 is very easy to get used to (I usually use linux on my desktop PC) and is very quick and smooth and I love the metro design.
The webcam is GREAT for skype calls, really good framerate etc.
Overall, great laptop. But price is a bit high here,
I got this laptop for £279.99 from PCWorld.
GREAT LAPTOP. (I typed this up on the laptop,)

Style Name: Pentium B980, 4GB, 500GB HDD Verified Purchase
I like the touch pad being in the center bottom of the keypad. I am left handed and most computers are putting this slightly to the left, forgetting there are left handed people in the world. This gives me more room to place my wrist and this is the reason I picked this computer. I have had HP or Compaq laptops since I have been buying laptops and they tend to be good computers. Where this computer drops the ball is it has Windows 8 operating system. I knew this when I bought it, and I expected a simple upgrade from Windows 7 Home Premium, not a whole new method of using the computer. It requires logging in with email address instead of a separate log in name, which I did not like. Then once logged in there are tiles rather than a toolbar to get to a desktop page, etc. Shutting down involves new fewer than four steps rather than hitting the familiar round button on the toolbar. It is completely different from a functionally standpoint. I hated it, and my husband, who is less computer savvy than me, hated it. We ended up buying a Home Premium disk, and took it to a computer repair shop and downgraded the system back to Windows 7 Home Premium. In the future, I will physically go to a shop to verify what the operating system is like before I pick a computer. Hopefully, Microsoft will go back to a Windows 7 type operating system for the future. Everyone that has been exposed to Windows 8 that I have talked to hates it.

The only thing "wrong"...........is that windows 8 is on the laptop and it is not very good, they still have to iron out some of the operating functions......C'est la vie!
