Ive not owned a laptop for many years, having decided to use an iPad for most day to day things. And as good as an iPad is there are many things that you simply cant do. So I took the plunge and bought this one. Its light but feels solid, the keyboard is as good as you can get, graphics and sound are quite adequate. It can run image/video processing whilst doing other things more than easily which was my reason for purchasing it. I have rated it at 5 stars as I think it warrants that, certainly by comparison with some other well known makes that for the same money only come with half the amount of memory.

I am only giving this expensive paperweight one star because Amazon won't let me give it a negative star rating. If I could, it would be -5 stars. I never thought I could be this disappointed with a laptop purchase from Amazon. I have no idea how this item could have such high reviews from so many other users. My experience has been nothing but bad from the very beginning.
I had owned this "laptop" (and I use that term very loosely, since it seems to work much better as a paperweight) for only a week when they keys started coming loose from the keyboard. I was a bit disappointed, since it took my last laptop a good four years to start losing keys, but I thought it's not the end of the world. I bought this laptop in May. By the first week in August it was making very funny noises. Then it stopped working all together. That would be a THREE MONTH OLD laptop. The hard drive was completely gone after a mere three months and the keys were all coming loose on the keyboard. We sent it away to be repaired. When we got it back, it still did not work. My husband spent some time talking to some tech people online and after seven hours, we finally had it "working" again. Again, I use the term "working" very loosely. It starts up and I can do stuff online with it as long as I have all day to keep messing around with it to get it to do what I want. In other words, it does not work well at all. It still takes a good 30 minutes to start up and it takes ages to do anything on it.
If you decide to purchase this expensive paperweight, do not expect much. And expect no help at all from the manufacturer. Amazon was even less help. If you only want a laptop that lasts a few weeks, you won't be disappointed.

I am very pleased with the computer, once I had got rid of the awful Windows 8 start screen (replaced by Stardock's Start8 Windows 7 style opening) I soon got my head around it having had a similar model only recently.

My main problem is, as always, with Microsoft. How a company can make their own products obsolete requiring mind boggling and time wasting work to make previous files compatible beats me. If only everything I have was not tied to this awful company I would jump ship and get a more sympathetic operating system.

Only had to change its 5400 rpm hdd that really bogs down this otherwise superb machine. Upgraded to a Samsung 840 Evo and it truly shines now. Will definitely recommend it for business and causal user.

This is, however, not a gaming machine and it has no discrete card to power up any decent game. I tried playing Mass Effect 3 on this game and it could barely operate at minimum settings. But this is just information for future customers. I have no reason to deduct a star because I knew it wouldn't be able to play games.

Its well worth the money (I bought it for £379 though I see its at a discount now) and would definitely recommend as long as you understand that it doesn't have a gaming graphics card in it and you should upgrade its pathetic hdd to an ssd (something like even a cheap £50 kingston ssd investment will go a long way) to really unlock its potential.

If you are going to upgrade to SSD, one point to consider is: this motherboard is limited to SATA II - most new SSDs are backward compatible but just in case you're looking at an SSD that isn't (technology moves so fast!), you won't be able to use it with this laptop.

Bought this to use at home. It is a bit bulky and heavy to use daily as a portable. Uses windows 8.1 which was a big learning curve for me and now that I have got used to that I can appreciate this lap top's qualities. Good RAM makes it very quick and there is an abundance of storage space for photos, music, etc. It works very well using Skype for Skype to Skype chat and Skype telephone calls. The speakers are of poor quality when watching video or listening to music but the sound is good through headphones. However this is common feature of many laptops. I connected it to two high quality stand alone speakers which made a massive improvement to the sound. The HDMI facility is good. If you connect it to a modern TV you can set it up so that the lap top screen cuts off thus not distracting you if you want to watch something via your TV screen. Overall for the price you get a good lap top.
