Advantages: LOUD VOLUME, 4 USB PORTS, QUALITY SCREEN!!!
Disadvantages: THE LAPTOP CHARGER WIRE WAS NOT LONG ENOUGH IN LENGTH!!! CHARGING TIME COULD BE LONGER!!!
I bought this laptop for my University studies because I was on a low budget and needed to find something that suited my requirements. I also needed something that was going to respond well to plenty of use over the course of the years to come and also something that had an adequate screen and ran very smoothly. This was perfect because it had just that it was very fast and was at an affordable price range. It also has wifi so being able to connect to my wireless network both at home and Uni was not going to be a problem. I never had any issues connecting wirelessly over the 2 years that I had this and I found it very reliable indeed. Another feature that I found extremely useful was how loud the volume actually is on this. I was expecting it to be low and distorted and was not at all expecting it to sound like a top of the range laptop. The sound was superb and I had crystal clear sound when using it to listen to my music tracks from my iTunes library. I also used it a lot for watching movies on and once again the sound felt very top of the range almost 3d like surround sound. I also liked the chunky keys on the keyboard. They were the perfect size for my fingers and I never experienced any issues with it. With 4 USB ports it once again proves how good and cost effective this actually is and the typical laptop would only allow for 2 USB ports so I must say I was well impressed with this. Also the quality of the screen was exceptional for a budget laptop and the picture looked exceptional when watching movies and also playing my favourite PC games. The laptop charger wire was not long enough in length and I felt I could have done with a longer one, however this was easily resolved by using an extension that I had in the house. I was finding myself charging this laptop an awful lot so please be wary of this and it may not be an issue for somebody who constantly leaves thier laptop on charge. All in all a very good laptop for £249.99 and a must have for anybody on a budget...
Summary: All in all a very good laptop for £249.99 and a must have for anybody on a budget...
