I have been in the market for a new laptop for months. I have shopped every site imaginable for the most ideal laptop for ME. Unless you have one custom built for yourself forget looking for 100% of what YOU desire. I chose this machine for a number of reasons. Price, reliability, needs, how close to me to go get NOW???.. I read the 2 reviews and laughed at them. Who would ever compare the shell and casing of a laptop with the interior of an auto? It's a laptop NOT a high tech piece of machinery. This laptop has everything you need for daily needs. The complaints about costs, get REAL. price the operating system first, an Windows 8 upgrade ALONE is $120.00. That's just an upgrade, not whole new system. You get to view and kick the tires in the store to see if its you or not. This has speed, power, memory, storage enough for me. Packed and do I mean packed with great surprises for YOU. A week ago I plugged my Kindle to charge it. Later I looked and screen cracked. Never dropped it or neglected it ( it's 2 years old). Always covered. Decided not to replace it ($199.95 new.). To my surprise 2 nights ago, this system contains Kindle. I thought no way will have the hundreds and hundreds of dollars worth of books bought. Guess what, every single book is now here. Music choices, endless. Sound is better than a Bose system. I have been buying laptops yearly until 3 years ago so this is my first update in awhile and I am glad I bought now. These laptops are less and less expensive yet faster and faster in speed, more versatile for your every day life. Lightweight and durable, even though NOT same as interior of car. Can download a whole list of you-tube videos in less than 5 minutes and all with a click or 2 (Firefox browser along with download extension, both free). Transfer all to an external hard drive and I pod for enjoyment. If you are serious about a new laptop this is for you, originally I limited my cap at $350 yet decided to spend the extra 50 bucks and glad I did. Have owned all different brands and all work the same. You are only buying a brand name. Look inside and no 2 parts will say laptop brand name on them, no laptop ever will. Trust your instinct. Every brand has negative and positive reviews. Think neutral and think for yourself as no 2 opinions are the same. Enjoy... I do... Thank you Walmart for providing me with high quality products at super fair prices. The wait in line is well worth it. Oh almost forgot, a little good luck. I bought this the past Saturday ( back to school rush) , I don't have kids. I bought and took home along with my $50 worth of other merchandise. Today I dig up all paperwork and put in a big heavy duty zip top bag to protect it and keep where it's easy to find. I look at receipt and had to look again, only less than $3.00 tax for all. Hit me with a brick, tax free week here in Florida to assist students and family. Had no clue, but wow what a break... Did I say intelligent shopper?? Okay ignore that part... Have fun all and enjoy life and each other...
