If you can afford something else, don't buy this.

It's all right for the price. If you just need to to browse the internet and get some (school) work done every now and again then this model is fine. But if you want something fast, reliable and that will last you (hopefully) more that 4 years then this isn't the best.
I've had it for almost two years now and it's started to give me some problems.
It does not get better with time.
It freezes up, it's slow, it feels a bit flimsy at the base.
Why is it always doing updates?? It's like every other day it alerts me that there are updates to be done.
I can't seem to change the settings correctly to make this thing actually remain on sleep. I've tried everything. When I change the settings the computer starts up again after 20 minutes, is on for 20 minutes then falls asleep again, repeating the cycle.
I keep the computer on hibernate now but that just causes a slow down of the entire system after start up.
It has a nice display but audio sucks. Even at the highest level it can easily be drowned out.
Point is that if you want something for basic use, this one is fine.
But if you expect it to last a while and you can afford something a $100 more, skip this one.
