Pros: No dead pixels. Big beautiful display and makes games look great. Can't speak for overclockability compared to the Korean 1440p monitors. 60hz is fine for me and it's response time is good for games.

Pros: This APU quad core has excellent performance for day to day use. A smidge over five pounds. Overall build quality is excellent for a $380 notebook. The gpu actually performs quite well all things considering. I bought this mainly for mobile productivity, but it was able to play CS: GO on high settings smoothly (no AA, 16x AF) at 1366x768. That may have a little to do with my immediate upgrades to it. Speakers are adequate.
Cons: The battery life is decent, not great but decent. Supposedly, it has 5 and a half hours worth. I hovered around 4 on power saver with normal use. The wireless card has below average range.
Other Thoughts: Before I even powered the machine on, I added another 4gigs of ram and replaced the disk with an 256gb SSD. Honestly, those two additions alone make it a much different machine. Those two additions could be a big reason why the gaming performance surprised me, especially since the memory is shared for graphics. Still, that shouldn't make THAT much of a difference so the GPU is more capable than I was originally led to believe. I bought all of that for $600 even. Not too bad IMOREAD FULL REVIEW
