Pros: Had a 4+ year old Acer with an middle of the road Intel i5 . It was really slow even though I added memory from the original 8. At least I had time to make coffee before I could get to my e-mail. This one is on in 10 seconds vs 10 minutes. Very fast going from one program to another. Never had a laptop with backlighting so I'm enjoying that feature. I use the laptop for e-mail, surfing the web and checking out various business sites. The i7 CPU handles anything I need. It's also is light weight. I don't do games other than some basic card games, etc. The screen resolution is excellent. I'm very pleased. No cons.
Overall Review: I'm very glad I choose this laptop. Met all my requirements and more. I'd recommend this model to anyone who needs to upgrade from a slower model.
