4 out of 5 eggsPretty Good

Pros: Pretty good specs. Nothing overly special, nice dedicated graphics card, definetly worth the price. The Intel Core i5 and 6 gigabytes of ram work well with the set up. The texture is nice, not to pronounced. The touchpad is ok. The HDMI port is nice too. Can run quite few good game fairly well. (See other thoughts.) Newegg also shipped my package extremely fast.

Cons: Although a very nice computer, there are a few cons. The button set next to the power button is a bit childish looking, and they aren't very useful. 2/3 of them require a program already open. One of them is to open the disc drive, which is ridiculous because there is also a button on the side for that. There is also a airly large fingerprint trap by the speakers and buttons... Seriously? Why did they make it high gloss around there? The keyboard is also a little small, could have been a little bit bigger. The right shift button is so small, its practically worthless. Also can get pretty hot while playing games, cooling pad definetly recommended.

Other Thoughts: This computer is definetly worth the price. There aren't many laptops for this price that have a dedicated graphics card. It runs games fairly smoothly. I've played Just Cause 2, Sid Meiers Civivlization 5, Borderlands, and a few others. The textured coating isn't exactly scratch-proof, but it adds a nice finish. The textured touchpad is also nice, the texture isn't too pronounced, but I still prefer a normal mouse. There is also a small physical button to turn off the touchpad, which is a really nice addition.

2 out of 5 eggsBroken

Pros: The specs of the computer look great for it's price range. Little to no bloat ware and lots of usb port that I would need. Awesome.

Cons: Web cam and wireless didn't work. I sent it back to New EGG for a replacement RMA which was suppose to be resolved in 5-10 business days. Instead I was sent in a bit of circles and it drag on for three weeks. With no working properly computer/work station for my graphic design gig, I lost out on a job offer. Eventually I received a full refund.

Other Thoughts: This laptop was selling for $750 around. 2/15/2012

Now you can get the same laptop for around $150 dollars less. I went a head and bought a nice desktop instead from another store.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat price for a good laptop

Pros: Sweet price for i5 + dedicated graphics card + 6 gigs of ram.
Size is good. Key board is a little tight for big hands, but fits mine just right.
Textured cover and wrist rest is a nice touch.
Very little bloatware.
Lots of different ports. The rubber cap on the traditional phone line modem is cool.
Overall size and weight are good.
Seems to run cool with good ventilation, but I haven't had it very long.
The hard key for turning off the touch pad is good.

Cons: The power brick is enormous. What is this, 2002?!

The screen is just ok. Not bad, but not great. Looks sharp, but the viewing angles are kind of poor.

The quick launch buttons past the top of the keyboard are not that useful and look childish.

Other Thoughts: Can't comment on the battery life yet.

Overall, this is a very nice little machine.
