Other Thoughts:

I tried to rate this fairly despite the laptop dropping dead after the first week. A USB drive was plugged into one of the ports and the laptop shutdown. The next day, the same thing happened but then the laptop wouldn't power on after that. Before you suggest the battery died coincidentally - it was plugged in when it died both times. Tried other sockets on different breakers, blah blah blah. May have been a lemon, may be poor design.

A lot of the cost seems to be hogged by an unnecessary touchscreen. If you have a mouse, why use touchscreen? If you want a tablet, I'd get a tablet.

Not much of a con since it balances out, but no CD drive. Yeah,
yeah, who uses CDs anymore when you can use USB, sure, but it's nice to have if you need it. On the other hand, you don't have to pay for it if you don't use it. Decided it was time to own an external CD drive and got one discounted during Black Friday sales.

If I hadn't gotten this for 33% off, I would have been disappointed, even if it hadn't broken. Newegg had stellar customer service regarding the return.

Overall thoughts: I got this despite there being practically no reviews after searching google for about 30 minutes. If yours works, then it may not be a bad laptop. It seems like it can't make up it's mind if it wants to be a laptop or tablet.

Returned for a refund and looked at other options for a similar cost.
