I bought this laptop for a friend at Walmart for a suprising $349 - for even less it was advertised. Pros:
- nice design
- anti-glare screen - not the bright, reflective ones
- good sound quality through headphones
- dual core, pleaty of RAM to multitask Cons:
- Windows 8 - this OS is so immature, probably fine on a tablet, but on laptops? What was MS was thinking?
- color gamut of the screen is rather poor, also colors change with the viewing angle
- no USB 3.0 ports -if you have some very high speed devices, these will only work at a lower speed. Mind you, portable plattered hard drives do not likely utilize the full speed of USB 3.0 anyway
- poor sound quality from the built-in speakers
- small-ish hard drive Other:
Overall, very satisfied with this laptop - for the money, it is a good value. Best used for web, email, multimedia, word processing.
