I bought this laptop last year for my little sister who is currently going to college for her everyday use. It's been great so far without any problems. The only blemish/weakness I can think of is the battery life of this laptop, it only last around 3 hours after a full charge. I would advise to get a spare battery for this laptop if you are planning to buy it or just replace to a more powerful one as your main battery if you are planning to use this away from an electric outlet for a long while. Other than this problem, the whole laptop is very good in terms of price-to-performance ratio. With this budget, it's hard to find a similar setup in this price range. The video quality is great without any stutter doing most daily chores. Also, the processing power of the cpu and memory are both great to be able to handle most of everyday jobs we are doing. Even could play video games that don't require a brand new videeo card, this laptop can do it all. I recommend this laptop to anyone looking for a budget yet powerful laptop.
