Pros: Good battery life when using the integrated graphics card.
Very sleek profile, great for a professional setting.
Very easy to switch to windows 7 64 bit. All drivers are available from gigabyte and work perfectly.
Beautiful display, surprisingly sturdy construction.
Easily mistaken for a macbook pro when open, but substantially better gaming performance in side by side comparisons I have conducted at lan parties.
Excellent hard drive performance and sizes. Very fast boot/OS SSD, and substantially larger secondary drive for storage. I actually run most of my games from the secondary hard drive and they work perfectly well for my purposes. I am also very happy to not be burdened by a pointless optical drive!
HDMI and VGA ports make connecting to projectors for work presentations a breeze!
Cons: Low battery life when using the secondary GPU, but that is to be expected for this machine, and you should really plug into a wall anytime you want to use that card.
This GPU will still slow down and chug along if you try to play games at high settings, or if you are sitting in bed to play, and don't give the fans room to properly exhaust the hot air from the card.
Other Thoughts: The perfect laptop for me. I needed something that would look professional around the office, but still be able to entertain me while I am at home or traveling.
Ideal for playing games on low settings when you are on the road and don't have access to a proper rig.
