      I bought this notebook because my 4 year laptop just couldn't cut it any more. The 3 Gen Intel Core i7 with 6MB L3 is FAST. This note book with Windows 8 fires up from a cold start in about 15 seconds. It also runs extremely cool. I thought a portion of the bottom was getting warm but it was simply my leg warming the notebook up. It's only been 3 weeks but I am extremely pleased. I've since upgrade the hard drive and RAM. Start up now takes 8 seconds. From sleep mode almost instantaneous. Super fast shipping by B&H.

      Previous to buying this computer I had Dell Inspiron 1505. I know IT people that say Dell computers have lots of problems, so even though my Dell lasted 7 years with minimal problems, I decided to go another direction. I bought this computer based on the good reviews and reasonable price. I'm not a gamer so I don't need the top of the line computer. I mostly use internet, Word, Excel, PowerPoint etc.

      I have had more problems with this computer in my first 6 months than I had with my Dell in all 7 years. The computer regularly shuts off without saving my work and, from what I can tell, for no reason. Most Google searches say that this is caused by over heating, but the computer doesn't feel hot when this happens. The built in camera also stopped working in the first couple months. I use skype regularly so this is a problem for me. The speaker is also very quite so expect to have to buy external speakers if you plan to play music or watch videos.

                I love the large screen an keyboard setup. The volume isn't great, but that's OK if you don't often use it to listen to classes or watch stuff. Windows 8 is just horrible. I'm really disappointed that they feel the need to look like an I Pad on the start screen. Even if you use the desktop mode, it doesn't fully revert to the old display. I went online and found out how to put an "old fashioned" start button and add what I wanted to it, but basically it looks like windows 8 was made to fix a problem that wasn't there. Oh well, I'm not going to return it because I can't find other fast computers (i7) with Windows 7. I guess I'll just need to get used to this. I was told that Windows 8.2 will be a free download and it will help negate some of the annoying new features.

                      Fast, best-priced laptop. The 4GB RAM upgrade is worth it. Boots up only in seconds. The Instant On feature is nice. The only drawback is the terrible sound design as it seems that the speaker is firing downward; you would have to lift up the bottom of the laptop to hear more from the speaker.
