Bloatware. .. .. whats the point of all these ssds if youre gunna slow down boot time loading abunch of useless programs
Loaded with nonsense and garbage. It took several days to clean it up. It also has Windows 8.1 which only adds to the negative value of the otherwise great machine. Its a laptop not a tablet
For whatever reason it does not like the internet. Very slow and hardly worth the effort. Not sure why but it was like that right out of the box
