I bought this laptop after working my butt off at an awful part-time job I had while being a full time student. This laptop has a very nice design on the outside, has that touch volume thing and had great specifications when it came out.
Poorly constructed in so many ways from the LCD screen to the touchpad to the entire laptop case. Lacks USB slots. It only has two USB slots, so if you have a wireless mouse, then you'll only have one slot free.
I won't lie, when I first bought this laptop, I loved it only because it was my first time actually working for something and paid almost $700 for it. Now, it's only been two years. I bought this laptop in 2009 and already, I'm looking for a ... Read full review
I won't lie, when I first bought this laptop, I loved it only because it was my first time actually working for something and paid almost $700 for it. Now, it's only been two years. I bought this laptop in 2009 and already, I'm looking for a replacement for this junk. While the computer itself is fine and I don't have any crashes or operating problems, this laptop sure does have a lot of aesthetic and construction problems.
Just after my warranty expired, the laptop's LCD screen starts to jump and based on how I see it, it will cost me a lot of money to repair. Not to mention the fan is making a lot of strange grinding noises, and now that needs repair. The hard drive doesn't seem to be failing, but it makes this loud scary TICK once in a while. With all these problems to fix, I might as well buy another laptop.
What pissed me off the most the LCD screen jumping. And I didn't realize this laptop only has two usb ports. Other than that, the plastic casing for this laptop is awful. The right edge is so sharp that I can slice myself with it like getting a paper cut. And the touchpad? Ridiculously hard to control especially in warm/humid weather or when your hand is a bit warm. The touchpad has way too much friction to the point where I deem it entirely useless and it randomly jumps to places because the friction makes it too difficult to control.
It came with a little remote control but I haven't used it. Other than all this, I should have gotten another laptop because now I'm at the point of paying all these malfunctions out of my own pocket again and it's only been exactly two years. And I seriously just created an account just to tell people this and avoid this laptop. I hate it so much.
