This is a very nice laptop for the $350.00 price tag. After shopping around for several weeks, came to the conclusion this was a good choice. Initial impressions (about a week of ownership):
External: Great finish overall on the outside. The sparkling silver color & finish on the lid makes it look classy like other much more expensive models. Hinges are tight and screen feels sturdy enough. The chicklet-style keyboard has the right key space and layout. The top function keys now work like the Mac keys with the media functions ready instead of the old-fashion "F" functions. To access the F function assigned you have to do a Fn+Function Key instead -it was about time!-. Access to USB, HDMI, and Card Reader ports is perfect, and DVD drive tray is slim, not on the bulky side.
Internal: The AMD A6-5200/HD 8400 Processor/Graphics is great for everyday computing, browsing, office, Windows Apps, etc. Windows 8.1 (it comes with 8, you'll have to do the upgrade yourself) feels surprisingly snappy and responsive. For the tasks at hand, the 4GB RAM feel adequate but I'll be updating this review as other apps are tested.
This is not by any means a High-End Business or Workstation class laptop, but for the price you pay is a great unit. There are other brands that have similar offers, and maybe a little cheaper, but compared physically and functionally to those from Toshiba and Dell, honestly the quality on this one feels better.
