"I'm not impressed"2.5 starson by SuperKellyK
Pros: The design is sleek. The keyboard is big and easy to use. Awesome wide screen.
Cons: It's slower than I expected. The hard disk is very loud and cranky. The battery is big and bulky. Freezes up frequently.
Summary: I was so excited to buy this computer after reading all the wonderful reviews. I don't get it...why does everyone think this is such a great machine?This is an update from the original poster. Don't be fooled by these reviews saying the volume control has "issues". There are no issues....it's a non-functional feature. It's defective. Another testimony of saving your files frequently. You will lose everything if you haven't saved your files once you hit that volume button.
The hard drive sounds like it needs oil when starting up. It sounds clunkier than any drive I've ever heard, to the point that I get worried every time I turn it on. \
I expected the battery to be big, but it's beyond bulky.
I couldn't install certain software because it needed a file from my Vista disk, yet the Vista disks didn't come with the machine.
My old computer was 5 years old and still faster than this one. Using this machine makes me wonder if I actually needed to buy a new computer. Maybe my expectations were too high.
