Pros: Affordable and performant. This laptop is well built and runs Linux Mint 13 flawlessly (with Intel Wifi card). The keyboard is great. The i5 model is fast, quick to boot. The screen looks great.
Cons: Fan behaves strangely sometimes. No charge indicator light. Mousepad buttons above the pad take time to get used to.
Other Thoughts: I did not want Windows 8 so 7 was perfect. I dual boot with Linux Mint and use Linux 95% of the time. I suggest you make sure to get the Intel wifi card model if you want to run Linux. I almost did not buy it because of reviews complaining about flimsy build and noisy ill fitted screen. I have not experienced any of this. It looks and feels rugged to me. I am glad I bought it. I wish there was a charge indicator light for charging the laptop while it's off. I don't play games so I can't comment on that. However, for work and Internet use, it is excellent, especially with Linux Mint on it.READ FULL REVIEW
