5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant laptop! 28 Dec 2013
Style Name:Core i5 3317U 1.4GHz, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD|Verified Purchase
This was bought for my 18year old daughter who needed a laptop that was not heavy or bulky for travelling. It wins on these as it is narrow and lightweight. I have seen her demonstrate the touchscreen and it is brilliant, very easy to use and responsive. She is very impressed and is quite knowledgeable about PCs etc so this is not the view I'd someone who knows nothing. There is no DV/CD drawer but everything is downloadable now anyway and this facility would have added weight which she did not want. It is really a great laptop at a brilliant price and I would be happy to recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding 30 Dec 2013
Style Name:Core i5 3317U 1.4GHz, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD
This laptop with the Intel i5 is an excellent everyday machine which is only restricted by the integrated graphics Intel 4000. Having said that, as a test I installed Rainbow Six Las Vegas 2 on max settings and it works perfectly smooth. It is a very solid machine and worth every penny.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but could be quicker 21 April 2014
Style Name:Core i5 3317U 1.4GHz, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD|Verified Purchase
I really like the laptop, in fact I'm writing on it now. It looks nice and does everything I need, The only downsides are that when you first get it there is a lot of software updates that need to be done before you can start using it. This takes about a day to work through all of them then it is a bit slower on some functions but is still very usable.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great computer! Shame about the bloatware! 12 April 2014
Style Name:Core i5 3317U 1.4GHz, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD
Have no doubt, this is a great machine. I love the touch screen. The display is crisp and bright with great colours and the processor handles all my stuff seamlessly - admittedly, I am not throwing processor hungry games at it, but HD videos are great. The speakers are good, too. So listening to music is a pleasure. Windows 8 needed updating to Windows 8.1 but that was no hassle. The real downer was the amount of bloatware that came with it. It really spoiled the experience of having a new computer and took me about a week to sort. If you are not reasonably computer literate, the bloatware this came with will really be more than just a major irritation. Running spybot was a great help and sifting through the start menu and closing down all the stuff you don't want also sharpened things up.
Now it's cleaned up, it's great. A really nice machine. But you should not have to clean up a new computer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for the price 8 Feb 2014
Style Name:Core i5 3317U 1.4GHz, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD|Verified Purchase
slim, elegant, touchscreen, i5 processor for 449. Bought just before Christmas 2013, seemed like a bargain and has performed well so far, but don't expect it to be as good as a 1000 machine. No optical drive, but not a great problem nowadays.
