Pros: When I bought the laptop I was not sure exactly of the configuration of the drives. It came with an SSD card and a hard drive inside. The operating system comes installed on the 120G SSD Card and the 1T hard drive is empty. The pleasant surprised by the multipurpose bay in the front of the unit. It ships with a plug in optical drive and a plug in rack that a 2.5 drive either hard or SSD is inserted into and then into the front of the laptop. Nice, for RAID 0 if you want too.
Cons: The unit I got has a very slight ripple in the keyboard upper left. I thought about gluing it down at the seam, but decided against it as I would probably mess it up or worse. Anyway it does not bother me at all when I type. Also, I did not notice it until I had modified the Laptop, so the warranty was already voided. Really not enough to send it back.
Other Thoughts: I removed the hard drive and replaced it with a Samsung 850 Pro SSD 256G and then installed Windows 8.1 64 bit as my main drive. The main drive also boots Ubuntu Linux 64 bit 12.04. I then installed Windows 10 on the 120G SSD Card. All works great. Just a note, if you remove the bottom panel to swap the hard drive with an SSD, be very careful. When you lift the panel there are two wires that if you lift more than an inch or two you will pull them off! The wires are for the speaker and battery. The only way that I could get to the last screw for the hard drive so as to remove it, was to very carefully unsecure the wire for the battery. What I mean is to untuck it not unplug it, as it is tucked around the battery. That gave me just barely enough wire so I could rotate the back panel just enough to get to the last screw on the hard drive hold down bracket.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Looks great. Is fast. Nice picture.
Cons: The built in speakers work fine. However, if you want volume and quality use external speakers.
The menu buttons are not easy to use. I keep pressing the wrong ones.
Pros: Works really great.
Cons: Durability. Probably would not last in shop work or someone who would change drives a lot.READ FULL REVIEW
