"Next day, the battery was dead and after charging for three hours, it will not come on."

"It has a 12-month (1 year) warranty on its battery, and I think on the device, as well (Its hard to tell the warranty period from the paperwork)."

Color

Color:
"- The keyboard isn't the worst chiclet-style keyboard I've used- For everyday computing (browsing the web, Word docs, email, YouTube, Netflix), it's fine- Office 365 one-year subscription is a great deal, too- Not a lot of bloatware, but there is some (the worst of which is McAfee anti-virus)- Super light, just about two pounds, so it's really easy to transport- The display size (11.6 diagonal) is nicely big enough to do basic computing tasks- I had no trouble using the touchpad, seems okayWHAT COULD BE BETTER:- The color display is a weak link."
_
"I chose the gold color ( actually more champagne than gold ) as I read the complaints of the blue one showing fingerprints."
_
"I didn't think I'd love the gold, but it is quite subtle and more of a sandy color, which I really like."
_
"Good color accuracy."
_
"Don't expect vibrant, true-to-life colors and great viewing angles."
_
"I love the color."
_
"this laptop is great for it's price, it's only 2 pounds and it's very thing compared to other $199 laptops, it brings a year of free office use and now a free update to windows 10, love this product and the color as well"
_
"It shipped fast, I love the color & works great."

"Minus: Doesn't work great for downloading connecting with my pictures on my i-phone thought."
_
"It took a while to get connected to wifi because the internal date is wrong out of the box."

"Point three: Notebook searched for available networks and the connection was easy."
_
"UPDATE: After exactly one month, the wireless card crapped out, and I was no longer able to connect to the internet."
_
"This what I need small dissent memory capacity I get my notes and document safety wi fi is not a problem to connect is faster."
_
"Overall, this is a great little laptop - it connected easily to our wireless home network (the faster port on the modem, too) and has plenty of storage and speed for our needs."
_
"If your computer is going to be constantly connected to the internet, you may as well take advantage of the cloud storage and synchronization Microsoft has to offer."

Windows

Windows:

_
"Windows 8.1 is kind of painful to use even with Classic Shell."
_
"its hard to load on windows 8 not windows 10 it will not load windows 360 at all."
_
"My recommendation is if you can't live with Windows 8.1, you should look for something with my storage space."
_
"At this point, this is all you need to do and just enjoy the trip as your laptop updates to Windows 10! "
_
"but it runs windows games really smoothly so I would recommend this product for anyone needing a cheap reliable computer"
_
"After uninstalling McAfee (Control Panel > Programs & Features > choose McAfee and uninstall it), do a Google search for McAfee Consumer Product Removal tool (MCPR) download to download a utility that actually gets rid of McAfee off your system (well, it's better than just doing a Windows uninstall only, anyway).9 2 15 UPDATE: My family liked these small computers so much, we bought three more of them!"
_
"It comes with one year of Office 365 subscription, it's upgradable to Windows 10, has terrific battery life and with flash memory, it's got relatively quick read write access."
