I needed to upgrade my tech for a low cost and this fit the bill. I considered Chromebooks and netbooks which were around the same price point. At the price I paid, $350, I got a full laptop. The screen is great, I was surprised that the size of it and that the keyboard had a numeric keypad.
Very nice entry-level laptop; something I don't have buyer's remorse about. I would not hesitate to purchase another one, should the need arise.

I needed to replace my 3 yr old Acer Netbook. I thought I liked small, but the old eyes didn't agree. So when I was visiting my brother and the Acer Wifi wouldn't work, I needed to upgrade. I actually bought an HP Compaq that came to a total of $338. Then I saw this one on Amazon for $349. It had more memory and a bigger HD. PLUS it had a numeric keypad on the keyboard.

However,if you are into playing a lot of computer games, it would be advisable to make sure you have sufficient memory and excellent graphics. I enjoy playing and downloading a lot of computer games and most if not all of them weren't very compatible with this system. So keep that in mind and just read every detail about the description of a computer system before you buy it. Overall,for the price I paid, it was an ex
