I own this. It's fine. I'm typing this on it right now. Screen is big and bright. It's planted on my desk, so I'm not concerned about the weight.
The keys are spaced far apart, which is actually mildly annoying. As in, there's space in between the keys that your finger can go into instead of hitting the key. Never seen that before on a keyboard, let alone a laptop keyboard.
What else.. oh yeah. It's garbage for videogaming. That's fine. It's my work computer.
Windows 8 is total garbage. The default music player takes 45 seconds to load, then tries to get me to buy music.
I've learned to work around Windows 8 for the most part. Truecrypt doesn't have W8 support on this computer, so beware if that's your encryption solution.
Doesn't pump out a lot of heat, and the fan is silent.
For a dirt cheap laptop, what can you complain about?
