    • Buying new lap top computer.

      from South Windsor. on July 9, 2019

      I had two very nice salespeople. They were very helpful in pointing out reasons for purchasing the lap top I was looking at, also about the manufacturers warrantee and why I might like to purchase extra warrantee. I was impressed with how fast things were going.

    • very fast and efficient laptop.

      from London Ontario on July 7, 2019

      Liked the lighting below the keys, great for typing without light. Very well designed and overall layout is very good

    • Worst.

      from Edmonton on June 18, 2019

      This has to be one of the worst laptops I have ever had. I had it for 2 years an it died.
