    "In Love...Thank u...good entry laptop...So that brings me to my this purchase, my sister was in need of a new computer (because of an old dead Windows machine) for her college needs, I saw this one on the sale and I jumped right away to buy it, so far the performance is great, it is not as great as the MacBook pro but then again this is thin and light unlike MacBook and is enough to fullfil the needs of a college student or even if you want to do coding etc."
