I first purchased or my parents first purchased I should say my current laptop right after i graduated high school in the summer of 2013. They took me to best buy and told me to pick out whatever laptop i wanted within a reasonable price. I saw a laptop on a commercial that was a PC. It doubled as a laptop and a tablet meaning you could detach the screen from the computer as use it as a tablet. To be honest I didn't know exactly what I wanted in a computer only that i wanted it to be a PC and I wanted it to be fast. Of course with the obvious that I wanted to take it to school and not have it be too heavy. I didn't know to much about computers, so my Dad checked to make sure the computer would be efficient. At first I didn't like my computer. It was slow and i wasn't quite sure how to work it. I would just use our desktop computer at home for all my work. My sister would use my computer for Netflix and all sorts of other things. What ended up happening was she put a bunch of viruses on my laptop which was the reason for its slow performance. So my Dad took it to get fixed along with my desktop computer, which would later crash and nothing could be done to fix it. So after the crash of the desktop I began to use my laptop which I now love and use all the time. I don't ever let my sister use it for fear of a repeat episode. I really love the touch screen on my computer. since my phone is a touch screen, it's out of habit that I touch computer screens. So I like that when I touch mine it actually works. My computer could use some improvements though. I wish it didn't freeze as often. Sometimes I wish it was a Mac, because they seem to be more reliable computers. However mine serves it intial purpose and for that I'm really thankful.
