    "The link did not work, but I found it on another website. This computer is rather slow for those who program and really need their computer to do fast processes. It is fine for an elementary or middle schooler who just wants to play around and mom and dad don't want them touching their computer. Basically an ok starter computer. This is not for a serious user or for someone who wants it for their business."

    "This isn't a great choice. It's a pretty small laptop. The specs seemed okay until I saw it has a very outdated version of Windows on it. I'm not sure if there is still a free upgrade available now. I'm going to keep looking for something else."

    "This is a neat idea. Customization of a laptop is awesome to be unique. I would say that it is a bit overpriced for what you get. Students don't need so much customization on their device. I think that the average student is looking at the hardware more than the software. "

    "This was an alright laptop for the price. For simple web browsing and lighter applications it works great. Unfortunately when you try to do something processing or graphically intense it heats up real quick and the battery doesn't last very long."

    "I own this laptop , i bought it but replaced all the internals. It is now the fastest laptop i have ever owned. For the price you are paying there is no doubt you should grab it up . The money you are saving you can use it to upgrade the memory and ram. And its so easy to do that you dont even have to have prior knowledge of replacing it. Awesome awesome laptop for 599"

    "This computer is good for the price point but not a heavy quad core computer. Keyboard is simple is comfy to use, the build is plastic but a strong sturdy plastic. Good computer and well protected from the vendor who sent it to me. "
