Pros: I have had very little to no problems with this laptop, i am able to multitask on levels i have never reached before, for instance i was able to run world of Warcraft on the highest possible settings, with all necessary add-ons, while streaming a video from netflix, on top of having multiple tabs on Firefox open. the sound spit worked without problems, and i experienced no lag at, from a wireless connection at that. Im not to updated on all the new hardware and software, but this PC plays NE game from BF3 to wow, runs any video, has four descent speakers and the whole beats audio by Dr. drae or whatever lol idk the metal sounds good anyhow.
Cons: the finger print scanner did stop working but i reinstalled the driver and wallla lol
Pros: Extremely good features for the price.
Excellent CPU, good Hard Drive capacity, and while the integrated graphics card is not the best you can get, it is more than good enough to run anything and everything that 90% of users will run (including me).
The Beats audio took some getting used to - about 5 seconds. I did not expect that high of a level of sound quality out of a laptop - especially at this price.
Another very nice feature about this laptop is that the RAM is scalable - a laptop that will handle 16GB of ram (without hacking the motherboard) for under $1K is NOT easy to find.
Cons: About the only "negative" I can see if that the placement of ports seems a little wonky to me. There are 0 ports on the rear of the laptop - everything is on the left or right side. The 4 USB ports are all the way at the front edge of both sides (2 per side), and while I have not had any issues with them, it seems weird...
Overall Review: So apparently I got one of the last of these that Newegg had...almost as soon as I got mine it went out of stock. I was a little hesitant because of the first review (the 1-Egg), but decided to take a chance because this was the only laptop I could find that had the combination of features, price, and specifications that I needed.
I am VERY glad I did, and I don't know what the other reviewer was thinking - he might have gotten lemon (I know that even excellent products have duds come off the factory line. Welcome to the real world....) or possibly his was damaged somehow in shipping...I've seen weirder things.
