Top Customer Reviews
The 6GB of RAM is more than ideal for browsing, playing mp3/cds, completing Office tasks and using Photoshop and a great addition at this price! The E450 processor is far superior to other AMD processors and outperforms Intel's Pentium Dual Core processors in benchmark testing, but more importantly it has so far coped with all the things I've asked it to do such as watching Flash/YouTube, surfing and letting the kids play online games. If you want to play some serious gaming then a better graphics card can be added as the Radeon won't cope with anything too heavy.
The pictures here don't really do it any favours as it's design is modern-looking if not spectacular, whilst the numberpad is a useful addition and something you wouldn't get on anything smaller. It feels robust and does what i want it to do, and at £299 this is the most pleasing aspect for me. We use this as an entertainment device with a bit of data processing and for this i have not seen anything better for the price. Certainly when i compare this to my old HP laptops it is far superior. If i have to find fault the keys make a slightly heavy clicking sound and the initial power saving setting needed some adjustment but apart from that, couldn't be happier! Speakers are ok and cope with video audio, but stick to using external speakers or headphones when playing music.
open the box and you get a recovery cd start guide, battery and power cord. It was really straight forward to setup and within 10 mins i was away.
easy to setup
easy to use
Particularly when watching dvd's, the screen resolution is excellent, though like any laptop the speakers are basic, so use of external speakers or headphones is recommended to get the best sound.
It's fast, it's a great price (it has come down in price from when I bought it), it's got a dual core processor, so when I do add Microsoft Office I know it will handle it with ease.
Perfect for home use, a great little machine!
Amazing screen quality
Loads of memory
More than worth the money!
Slightly heavy clicking sound with keys was noticable when I first started using it, but now it's only a minor issue and I hardly notice it any more!
Webcam quality only 0.3mp, still makes skype calls well!
Having now setup all the software they required with a wi-fi connection for the internet they are finding it very easy to use with a excellent screen image.
For myself the laptop will provide them with all their needs for quite sometime to come.
For these reasons I can throughly recommend this piece of kit.
I have an ipad which I use constantly but still find a laptop is needed occasionally. I thought a cheap laptop would be okay as I wouldn't be using it very often but wish I hadn't. I seem to have various problems every time I use it. It is slow and "sticky" and keeps losing wireless capability. I am pleased it was cheap!
