Pros Great performance and features, beautiful design, great keyboard, fast processor and sufficient memory, wonderful battery life.
Cons Slow hard drive (upgrade to solid state drive and 7 Ultimate), blueish screen (too bright), modest speakers, USB cover is annoying.
Summary More than satisfied with this laptop. Replaced my Sony Vaio that fried in a power surge (moral: always use a surge protector, and unplug your laptop when out of the house). I'm pleasantly surprised at the excellent performance and design of a laptop I thought of as a low-cost replacement for the short term. Instead, I'll upgrade the memory and hard drive, and use it for the foreseeable future.
Pros Sleek design, fast start up, nice keyboard and screen
Cons Battery can't hold a charge after only 6 months
Pros Good bang for buck
Cons non-removable battery
Pros Bright 14inch HD screen, turbo boost start up. Brushed metal finishes, Island style keys, muti touch click pad. Intel core I5 processor, wifi conncetion, optical disk drive and the latest USB 3.0 and HDMI connectivity. NVIDIA Optimus graphics card perform
Cons No lights under the key pad. :(
Summary This is a great affordable laptop that looks much more exspensive than $600. Its lite weight, powerful and it effortlessly unites a stylish aluminium design with great features.
