Does what it says on the tin? ... Nope!
on 21 February 2015
This laptop does not warrant the effort to spend much time reviewing it, other than to send out a warning to you ...
Firstly, the track pad is nigh on useless. It is temperamental and jerky. Downloading the suggested (by Amazon support) synaptics driver made no noticeable difference. Trying a work around I bought a Logitech Bluetooth mouse, but when the laptop freezes that is rendered redundant too. A usb mouse seems the only usable interface .. which kind of misses the point of having a track pad at all!
As to the construction? I came to use it this morning and noticed that it was rocking as I typed. When I took a look at the base, it had warped diagonally which was the problem. I stick the notebook in a protective neoprene sleeve and then in a carry case ... so trying to minimise the risk of damage. Basically its about as robust as a sheet of cardboard!
So why even two stars? Well, it was cheap, it mostly works and has not yet burst in to flames. But if one more thing goes wrong then (just for the personal pleasure of it) I will likely be setting it on fire!
My advice, stay clear and spend your money more wisely.
