Best in price range - Celeron packs some punch
on 16 July 2013
Only had this laptop for few days. Already loving it. It is sleek, solid and light.
After checking the specs and finding out it is Celeron powered I had not much hope. Boy was I surprised. Performs just as my Core2Duo 3GHz desktop. Quick to boot, fast to respond and will fly through everyday tasks. Battery life is excellent too. Obviously HDD will bottleneck a bit when launching demanding applications however, simple upgrade to SSD and you will be flying. Processor is more than capable and RAM amount is enough. If you buying to upgrade RAM - looks elsewhere. Procedure is very tedious.
In terms of software - you are getting the best, that is 64bit. Windows 8 itself is more of a joke in my opinion. However, with new update on the way you should be able to get rid of the Modern GUI and proceed as planned. Can't blame laptop on software though - you can simply install Windows 7 on it and proceed as planned.
Negatives? Can't think of any. Screen viewing angles are fine, CPU is fast, has enough RAM, HDD has decent performance, webcam is there, USB 3.0 and SD reader present, battery life is great, has full size keyboard.. All positive, especially considering it's price. Recommend.
