Excellent laptop/hardware for the money but for Windows 8.
on 27 February 2014
Spent time researching laptops, this came out best after the Amazon discount. Sadly did not consider the mess that is Windows 8, or 8.1 once its is upgraded. The new Metro interface is an abortion, only made usable by third party application that enable you to avoid its use. Try 'Classic Start Menu - a flexible start menu that can mimic the menu behavior of Windows 2000, XP and Windows 7' But for this option the operating system is not fit for use. Many application do not work with Windows 8.1.
Basically its trying to turn your laptop into a pad with Google play like integration. I have a pad but still need a laptop for serious business.
