The laptop has a very nice screen, very good speakers for a laptop. Seems fast enough, added 4 GB memory to up the total to 8 GB. There is no provision to go back to Windows 7. My personal opinion is that Windows 8 is almost unusable. I purchased Win 7 Pro and redid the the whole thing , a real hassle. Rakuten's price is low enough to be able to do that. Shipping was quick and cheap. A great deal overall. BTW, this not a touch screen laptop.
Wow! I am very glad I bought this laptop. It has most of what I need. I bought it mainly because I need a computer capable of running Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom since my old computer was inadequate for this task. This computer has the power and speed that I need. Thanks.
