Love the brushed metal look and color, matte mouse pad texture (I can't stand the glossy ones), touch button volume/heat dissipation controls, storage space, 4 USB ports (including two 3.0 ports), SD card reader, bright display, power brick is relatively small, expandable memory,
Had to uninstall a few extras I didnt want, but kept quite a few that seem pretty useful, I wish the mouse buttons were separate from the rest of the touch pad, and wish the keyboard was backlit, wish the hard drive was faster -- limits the transfer speed of the USB3 ports,
Having only had it for less than a week so far, I haven't had the chance to put it through the wringer as far as running multiple Adobe programs at once, but I have loaded some MMOs to it and it runs fine (obviously not maxing out the settings but not minimal either). The battery life seems fine so far; it's not as long as my husband's ASUS (which is a smaller laptop though) but definitely longer than a previous work laptop (17" with comparable hardware).
Overall, it feels like a well-rounded sturdy machine and for the price I'm really happy with it.
