5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: Super fast, awesome graphics! It outperforms anything I've had before by a long shot. Cool colors too. SSD makes it boot up in about 5 seconds.

Cons: Sound is a bit subpar, but you can hook it up to your Bluetooth headset, so I don't mind so much. Also, if you're doing anything that requires a high level of graphics processing, the battery goes dead pretty quick.

Other Thoughts: Overall, I am really impressed and would buy it all over again.
