I received this computer about two weeks ago and it has surpassed by expectations. Let me say, first off, that I am not a heavy computer user. I use it primarily for school, as well as keeping up with news, and some social networking. Graphics, etc are not a big deal to me. This computer, so far, is going to be a perfect fit. I love the color, although I will say that I was expecting the outside of the computer to be somewhat textured. It is very sleek, smooth, and glossy in appearance. Its the PERFECT surface to easily acquire fingerprints and smudges. :-( This has been my only complaint about this laptop, so far. I will probably just purchase a shell to put it in so that the surface will be better protected and I won't have to continually battle the smudges. Finally, I was pretty worried about the transition to Windows 8. I had already resolved to put Windows 7 on instead, before the laptop even arrived. To my surprise, I actually kind of like Windows 8. It has taken much less effort to figure out than I had originally expected (although I did myself googling how to do a few things on the OS at first). You WILL still have a desktop. What you see in the pictures is actually your start menu. You can go to your desktop from there. Overall, I am very pleased with this purchase and would definitely recommend this product to others.
