Computer works quick, also dies quick.Posted
I like this computer, but the battery dies within 1 hour of using it. Which I find ridiculous. I find it a bit of a hassle because the only way i'm able to use it is if it's plugged in. I have my brightness down extremely low and have also found ways to try and save the battery. It's currently on 94 percent and it's telling me I have 3 hours till it dies. I haven't even went on the internet. I've just been going through my settings and it's already decreasing my percentage. It even skips the percentage numbers, meaning it'll go from 60 percent to 58. less than a minute, skipping 59. Overall, It's a good computer, but the battery life is terrible. I've only had it less than a week and it seems to have gotten worse.
No, I would not recommend this to a friend
