A great buy if you're just looking for something simple and in a lower price range. I get at least six hours battery life with it, a great improvement over my last laptop which could only get two hours back in its prime, and it's very lightweight and easy to carry around. The only drawbacks are that it doesn't have a disc drive, and it's not particularly fast (although, I find it fast enough for normal use, and surprisingly fast on startup, especially when you put it in hibernate rather than turn it off—of course, because it's windows 8, you have to go through a process to get the hibernate function added back to the list of options, but once I found out how to do it, it wasn't too hard), so I doubt it would do very well with anything that involves heavy graphics, such as video games, video editing, photo manipulation, etc (I haven't tried it, though). I also didn't have a problem connecting to the internet, the computer walked me through the process on startup, which was nice.
I'm very happy with this product, love the price and it's been working very well for what I use it for.
