Excellent value laptop A very good value laptop. We have used it for internet browsing and spreadsheets, and it works fine. It might struggle with intensive tasks, but you can't complain at this price. Windows 8 is fine once you get used to it. 29 May 2013
Keyboard issues Do not buy this laptop if you are a touch typist and want to type up anything quickly. I am a secretary and am not used to having to bash the keys down hard as I type or having to hit the spacebar in just the right place. I tried the keyboard out in store which felt okay but of course you can't actually see what you are "typing". Very disappointed. 12 May 2013
I'd avoid this product... I bought this laptop near the beginning of the year in the Oxford St branch, and it's been incredibly disappointing. Only a few months after buying it, the touchpad has stopped working, making it pretty much useless. I'll have to try a separate mouse for it, but using a mouse surely defeats the object of using a laptop - it's supposed to be portable. I'm very disappointed with this product, and wish I hadn't bought it. 24 April 2013
