Does everything you need for home use. Purchased similar laptop 2 years ago for teenager use and that has hundreds of photos, coursework etc stored without any problems. Has better wi-fi connection than a more expensive laptop we have.
Can sometimes be a bit slow loading. Marked it down on design purely because it is not much to look at but I purchased for cost and reliability style was not important
