    We use the laptop only for surfing the web, skype, and mail. We know the limitations of the laptop, but is enough to run these tasks properly. Windows 8 is not my favourite system. Probably, running the computer with w7 should be better.

    I have used this for a week. Windows 8 is slow with only 2 GB of installed RAM. I did't pay attention to this in the ad. Some websites say that extra RAM may be installed, but for the same price or a little more, you could buy an ASUS computer that already has at least 4 GB of RAM. Otherwise, the computer is fine. Note that setup time including all Windows 8 updates takes a day.

              I was very hesitant to purchase this laptop however, I am glad I did. It works fine.
              The only thing I hated was how WINDOWS 8 wasn't user-friendly! The pre-installed apps wouldn't update just stayed on pending. But made my own re-search and found out how to fix that problem. Now, laptop is working out great!

              Uses: Microsoft Office 2010
              Homeschooling
              And some gaming for kids around 6-9yrs.old :)
