Pros: Fairly good audio, I really love playing muic on this machine. It starts up fairly fast, within about 20 seconds you'll be at the Metro screen. Decent battery life.
Cons: I gave this product two eggs because this machine really is quit terrible when it's not working, which is often.
Graphics - Games were automatically set to always use the Intel graphics chip - not sure why, but it was easil fixed...it's something that I shouldn't have had to deal with, however. Mid-game, my computer starts to lag incredibly badly and then just shuts down for seemingly no reason at all. I think it's a heating issue, because this computer can get VERY hot.
Screen - The screen is terrible. It looks good in-game, but any text viewing (i.e. web browsing, writing documents, etc.) is VERY blurry. I've had this computer for 2 months and STILL have issues reading text, and my eyesight is good. The plastic around the display is very cheap as well.
Build Quality - The build quality is pretty poor. After my first month owning this product, I accidentally banged it against a wall. It didn't hit very hard, but the right side of the case is now warped and dented. If you're clumsy, you should definitely not buy this product.
HDD/SSD - Slow. I expected some extra speed out of a hybrid drive, but it's as slow - if now slower - than the HDD on my old laptop. Lately it's been having trouble loading previews of images in my pictures folder which is, simply put, sad.
Other Thoughts: Overall, I am extremely disappointed with this product. It's useless for gaming. All it seems good for is music because of its nice speakers...that's the only thing keeping me from rating this one egg. I would never recommend this product to everyone.READ FULL REVIEW
