The laptop is a great and updated version. The operating system is amazing and incredibly fast. It has a wide but big screen that is nice for playing games. The battery also last a long time as well. Ease of Use The use of this laptop takes a bit to learn. When I first used it, it was hard to navigate. Once I learned how to use it, it was easier to navigate than I thought it would be. However, occasionally I still hit the keyboards on the laptop and have to restart typing since I hit the wrong button or key. The mouse on the actual laptop is sometimes frustrating because it is very easy to hit or accidentally use when I don't intend to. Battery Life The battery life is significantly longer than other laptops. I wouldn't say it's the best but it does last longer compared to other types of laptops. Speed/Performance Speed and performance are outstanding with this laptop. The first time I used it, I was really impressed.
