This laptop exceeds my expectations! I cannot believe this great of a laptop came at this cheap of a price! In terms of pros, cons, and windows 8... Pros:
-Cheaper than most laptops of this size and capacity.
-4GB of RAM- functions very quickly.
-Lots of storage space on hard drive.
-3 USB ports
-HDMI Cable port
-CD/DVD Drive (that made me VERY happy)
-SD Card (Card from camera) slot
-Nice cord to charge it with (Yes, it is included)
-Ability to adjust brightness, volume, and wifi from the keyboard (the F1, F2, F3, etc keys)
-Ability to swipe the touchpad from left to right to switch (very quickly) between programs.
-Battery life is about 4-6 hours. Pretty good for this priced laptop! THIS COMPUTER RUNS WINDOWS 8. Just so everyone knows, Windows 8 is not a monster. It doesn't destroy your computer at all- it can even make your computer better if you can get used to it. The big thing with Windows 8 is that it's like a smartphone, with apps. There's an app for documents, for photos, for news, for games, etc. Also, for anyone who ran any other version of windows, Windows 8 just takes your "Start" menu and spreads it out on a nice long screen, where you get to go through all the apps (you even get to pick the color and design of the big long screen). If you're more comfortable on the regular desktop, you just go into the "Desktop" app right away. Some people might not like windows 8, but this is where Microsoft is headed, so please, give it a try. I liked it, and I think most people will too. Cons:
-Touchpad is a little touchy, but I've gotten used to it.
-No back-lit keyboard. Doesn't really bug me, but it might bug some people. All in all, this was a fantastic purchase. I think anyone that is looking for a mid-sized laptop that has power but isn't giant will be pleased with this product. I have been running it for almost three weeks now and adore it. I think almost anyone else will too.
