Great Customer Service 10/12/2013
Starts ups very quickly with Intel Rapid Start. Price is right, for sure.
What I really liked most about this laptop is that after I did my best to mess it up while trying to downgrade to Windows 7 (don't... windows 8.1 comes out in a week) and I had to RMA it, they fixed it right away and had it back to me in a week. I'm in CA, but they only had it for 4 workdays before then sent it back to me. If you RMA anything from the big companies it will take you 2 weeks or a month to get it back.
I'm not a huge fan of the color or the logo, but that is not why I knocked off an egg...
As much as I really do appreciate the RMA process and personal customer service and support, I can't give it 5 eggs, because after getting it back from them I noticed the Microphone/Headphone combo jack is messed up and only works with my headphone/microphone combo if I have it plugged in half way. Seems the solder job was a little shoddy there.
However, I am certain if I was willing to part with it for another week (or maybe two since it isn't just a software issue this time) Avatar would be glad to fix it for me.
Avatar support is really great. I hope NewEgg pick up more of their stuff in the future. I would give them 4.5 eggs if I could.
