Nice size screen, love the numeric keypad, keys are responsive without being noisy, decent processor, and happy to find a 64-bit version of Windows 7 (not 8) at this price
It has everything I need out field guys to have on their machines. And it was very inexpensive for a decent machine
It was delivered
Price is good for the specs. .. .. it is a real ivy bridge CPU with true hyper cores(runs like a quad but is a dual). .. .really as fast as my desktop after it is booted. .. .. .8 comes as a disc and
Excellent processor (Ivy Bridge 3 2.4Ghz) and graphics (H 4000) for the money
Machine looks cheap and plastic-y, battery life isn't great
Not the lightest or the fastest. And they didn't pay me a new car
O ordered a laptop with windows 7 for a reason, and this was windows 8. Now to legally switch it i need to get another windows license
TAKES 1 MINUTE 15 SECONDS to boot 7. .. .. even after hack and slash on 7 start up and getting rid of bloat ware its still over a minute in boot. .. .. .. NO COA'S, none on the case none with the disc
Wimpy battery- 40 596 mWh. Still gets 2.5 4 hours because of Ivy Bridge efficiency
