Pros: It's a good laptop for the price. It comes with some bloatware but that's not really unexpected or problematic. I just use it as a second computer so I can still do homework and internet stuff while my main computer is tied up with hours of 3ds max rendering. It handles all of that stuff perfectly.
Cons: There aren't really any cons that wouldn't be expected from a $550 laptop. It isn't the most powerful machine, if you want something with more power get a more expensive laptop.
I hate the track pad, but I can't say much since I generally hate all laptop track pads and I can't really tell if it's harder to use than other track pads. I plug a real mouse into it and disable the track pad so I don't accidentally bump it while I'm typing.
Other Thoughts: The speakers are always going to be laptop speakers, but if you crank up the bass boost at 550 or 600hz in the speaker settings it sounds much much better. Bass boost gives no benefit at lower frequencies because the speakers don't even produce those frequencies. But, as I said, laptop speakers. $550 laptop speakers.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus - CPU Cooler with 4 Direct Contact Heatpipes
Pros: My i5 760 is overclocked to 4Ghz. 21c @ idle and 70c at load with prime 95. Also used arctic silver 5 thermal gunk in a coolermaster HAF 922 case.
Cons: If you're replacing your CPU cooler with this one you will have to disconnect everything and take your motherboard out. Not a con, just an FYI.READ FULL REVIEW
