This portable computer has saved my life.I have it for over 3 years now (bought it when i graduated from high school ).I am not a professional user, nor a computer specialist, but a university student who uses this pc a lot.I have a lot of assignments and general uni work and research to do and this pc has been a saver!Has never crushed, (although when deadlines are up i use it 24 hours!!!), never had a problem, has always been really quick, compared to my classmates' and friends' computers.Also downloads automatically updates really often, which helps people like me who don't want to worry about stuff like that.I can't imagine my life without it....it's been 3 years and still doesn't have anything to be jealous of the new computers.I remember being between this model and another one that had an intel core instead of an i3, but as it turned out, a little more money was worth it.The battery has also been a miracle!Most of my classmates' batteries lasted maximum 2 years, but mine is on its third and is still a keeper, although i use it reaaally much!The only two issues that might occur to someone who owns this computer are the following:
1st) the keyboard is a little strange, the buttons having a little too much distance among them.This results in little tiny garbage getting stuck in between , which sometimes makes it difficult to type unless you remove them.The solution is easy, you just clean it often with a soft adhesive rubber( like power tack)
2nd)Once i tried to play my favourite pc game and it worked fine at first but when i started adding patches it would really get stuck and sometimes the game even shut down.So, i think that the pc isn't for those who want to use huge programs or games.
