Definitely glad that I choose this laptop... I checked out several different models and reviews and this laptop was said to be the best bang for the buck. The display is sharp and crisp, the keyboard is quick and easy to get used too, and the touch pad despite what several reviews stated is smooth and consistent. In truth I really did not buy this laptop for the purpose of gaming even though that is what the manufacture intended. I just wanted a new laptop for everyday use and so far I have nothing to complain about, all the speed I need, plenty of space (256SSD) and good RAM (8GB). Plus has the added bonus of being easy to increase either should I wish or need in future. I would definitely buy again.
