I was pleasantly surprised with this laptop . Very good value for money . I had looked at a similar model at PC world .But the same old excuses , none in store , none in warehouse , don't know when they are getting any !So I bought it here . But the windows 8 is perfect . I know it was developed for touch screen but it works perfectly well with a mouse . Won't go into technical details as the product information says it all . Very pleased with it .
