-Speakers have excellent sound quality being a laptop
Cons: -Finger print magnet
-Both HDD's @5400RPM, quite slow for today's standards

-Touchpad is slightly unresponsive, although I just use my naga so this is no problem to me.
-Webcam has very poor quality, microphone is OK
-The keyboard has very small arrow keys, although it's not really a big deal.
Other Thoughts: I'm able to play Skyrim on High 1600x900 with the HD textures Addon at around ~40FPS average.
It runs Borderlands 2 maxed (Low PhysX) @ ~45fps
I recommend upgrading the hard drives to SSD or higher rpms and purchasing an external mouse.
Also, I reformatted to a fresh copy of Windows 7 64bit to save some time removing bloatware, which this thing came with a ton of it.
Overall, great price for a laptop.
