Pros:

Solid performer for the price, very light, amazingly bright screen.

Cons:

Laptop was faulty out of the box with either a bad HDD controller or mobo. Windows would consistently lock up, read/write errors plagued the Event Viewer. After multiple OS reinstalls, updating the laptop's BIOS, and verifying that the HDD itself was good (WDDiags tool, HDD hot-plugged into my work machine). As an experienced technician, I ruled out the obvious by reinstalling/updating/reseating everything possible and can only conclude that it was having mobo/controller issues.

Luck of the draw on defective parts? Maybe. Otherwise, the laptop was completely great design-wise and feature-wise.

Other Thoughts:

I am a computer technician, and these are the experiences I dealt with when a customer brought this model laptop in for repair.
