My first impression was that it was huge. It’s thicker and heavier than I expected but for the price point it’s to be expected. I don’t plan to travel too often with it so it’s not a huge concern to me. Setup with windows 8 is unbelievably simple and makes it quick to get up and running. I’m not a fan of the new Metro start screen. I tried to customize it but it still just took up way too much space for my liking. So I ended up downloading a free app, called classic shell that brought back the start menu functionality for me. I think the laptop (which is what we are actually reviewing here – not windows 8) is quite peppy and the specs are more than adequate for any average user. If you primarily use your computer for homework, email, web surfing, etc this will be great. If you’re a heavy gamer you probably want something else.
So strengths are: Screen. Processing. Price. And audio: really good sound, even just through the onboard speakers.
Only weakness really is that it is a bit big/bulky for a laptop. So I guess that’s the trade off for a low priced, good running machine.
Ps – windows 8 isn’t so bad. kinda fun. Just takes a day or three and you have it figured out.
One thing I have an issue with–and I will bring this up to Amazon–is that the ad says it’s a 2.6 processor, yet the box says 2.2. That’s extremely frustrating considering the processor is a primary component I was strongly considering in whatever pc purchase I made.
Keyboard is responsive with hand placement being pretty much where I like it. The ctrl key isn’t where I’m used to but, no big deal. As a first time Windows 8 user, so far so good. I actually like it.
I do like the screen size; can’t go wrong with the large display. Perhaps it just seems large to me since my Mac Air is 13 inches.
Overall I understand that we spent $400-ish, not $800+, for this computer so i’m fairly satisfied. I don’t know how Amazon will resolve the mistake they made by advertising this machine with the incorrect processor power. Other than that, I think i’ll enjoy this computer
UPDATE: Amazon was more than willing to exchange the pc for me. Overall this purchase is definitely a worthwhile one.
