"I was upset before buying this because it's the only laptop my money can afford, and I am a gamer. After buying it, I tested Minecraft, CoD Modern Warfare, NFS Most Wanted, and NBA 2k14 and I was wrong! It was able to handle these types of games. I also like the keyboard, its not hard to press plus the gaps between each key is a good factor. Even if I play my hardcore games it stays silent every time. The Intel Rapid Storage Technology might have helped in Fast Boot-Up. The One-Key Recovery is also helpful if I want to access the BIOS Setup. It takes 2 Hours to charge and 4 hours to play even in High Performance Power Plan Mode. If you don't have that much money for a premium quality laptop, I suggest to have this one because it can do pretty much with its price."
