I'm visually-impaired, so I hate laptops. Just can't see what I'm doing on most of them. This one surprised me.

My Mother retired this year, so I had to get her a new computer for use at home and while traveling. She mostly uses one for internet browsing and emails, etc. So I didn't have to get something with all the fancy bells and whistles. Didn't need top-of-the line speed, etc. Just something solid and basic.

I set this computer up on a home network, and was pleasantly surprised at the ease if was to operate, once I configured the display so I could read it. Streaming video via internet was smooth. Downloaded and installed all new updates in about 15 minutes.

The keyboard is solid, easy enough to navigate. The touchpad is a little different, solid plastic, not LCD. So I did install a wireless mouse to make it easier for Mom to surf. She's having fun learning what all the new little icons stand for on Win 7 Home Premium, instead of the older XP. Still prefers the old look of Solitaire over this one.

Overall, with the included features, like the DVD/CD burner, 3 USB ports, the built-in webcam, 250 GB hard drive, built-in card reader, and wireless networking, I'm pleased with this computer. and Mom loves it, too.

I bought this same laptop from Walmart for $100 less on 10/13/11. The picture in the ad on this site is incorrect. There is no separate number key pad. The software, memory, processer is a great buy for the price. The low cost is probably because the laptop hardware itself looks a little cheap such as the casing and keys. But if your main focus is cost for value, you can't go wrong!!

I got this from an Amazon seller for $200. At a cost of $300+ I would probably set the rating at 4/5 stars.

I have an iPhone and I use it as my primary computer for media and internet browsing. I really just wanted a simple PC I could use for a few tasks a smart phone cannot accomplish (or do so easily) such as downloading files, using iTunes, and creating documents.

Don't expect a high end experience. Programs will take at least a few seconds or more to begin but they run well once they are open. The battery lasts a few hours but not enough for long periods of use away from a plug-in. If you know what to expect and it fits your needs I certainly recommend this computer.

Okay, I am 14 years old and always dreamed of getting a laptop for my room for I always hated using the computer in the hallway, this was simply due to lack of privacy such as my lil bro watching me play World of Warcraft. It got really annoying and I've had enough. Christmas came and my parents got me this, and I was very pleased!

Okay, lets get on this straight, if you ARE looking for a gaming computer for modern gaming, don't even bother for this has to one of the worst for modern gaming. Games like Left 4 Dead 2 run OKAY on lowest graphics possible, as for games such as Battlefield, this will not run it at all! Luckily though, I play a lot of old school games such as Half Life 1, Quake II, Shadow Warrior, Duke Nukem, ETC. Games from 2005 such as Half Life 2 actually run really good on medium settings with very few lag drops in between. So if you like classic fps and games from the 90's and 2000-2008, than this will do just fine. Unfortunately though, still many games even from that era such as Call of Duty and Garry's Mod lag a lot with a lot of action happening on screen. This laptop IS NOT for gaming if you are a serious gamer, so don't expect this to even run BF3 on low settings.

As for the hardware and speed: It is okay as well but it still runs slow in a lot of areas, especially Firefox. Luckily though, I downloaded Google Chrome, and its running VERY fast in-browser now. Also, many of the office apps work fine as well such as MS Excel and MS Word. The hard drive is also a little low in memory as well which sucks because I download lots of old school games like Fallout 1 and Dungeons and Dragons and my laptop is running low on memory now.

This is the slowest computer EVER!!! Think it's the internet connection? Nope. Great price and easy to use but literally as slow as a laptop from 2001. Only buy if your broke/cheap and have a TON of patience. Only reason I got it is bc I have a work computer but didn't need anything except email/music etc. Shoulda spent an extra 50 bucks for the nicer one

This is without a doubt the slowest laptop I have ever used. It runs Windows 7 slower than my almost decade old Thinkpad T42, despite having twice the processing cores and twice the memory as the T42.

The laptop has a nice exterior, but the touchpad has the same hypersensitivity problems I'm used to seeing on mid-90's models.

The fan runs constantly for a 9w chip - which shouldn't even have a fan. This product is for people who don't know anything about computers. Total disappointment. I don't like to give bad reviews, but this laptop begs for it.
