Other Thoughts:

Like many of the other reviewers, I purchased this in September 2013 when it went on Newegg-sale for $399. This goes above and beyond expectations for a laptop at that price-point. At that price, you just hope it works and won't die on you in a week. This not only works, it does neat tricks like starts up so quickly that the first few times, I was sure it was just waking from sleep and not fully booting from shut down. I wouldn't get too excited about it being an "ultrabook", but it is a very nice sub-$500 laptop.

My husband and I use ours for doing school work and for a little gaming. It performs better than most non-gaming laptops, though we have never tried to play MMO-style games on it. We play games through Steam like Borderlands 2 (it can handle co-op mode). We do not use it daily, however. We use it on average about once a week.

The battery only lasts about 3.5 hours if we're doing school work and less than 2 hours if gaming. Part of this could be due to the fact that we run a USB-powered laptop fan on ours due to overheating. Without the fan, it overheats no matter what we are doing within 15 minutes. We rarely use our laptop where we can't plug it into a wall, but it does not last very long without a charger.

Overall, it's still a good laptop.
