Pros: -Great processor (best for the money in my opinion)
-Multitasks like a boss
-Great for video editing
-Good feel to keys
-Nice looking screen. Lots of colors
-Lots of functionality (sleep key, off display key, touch pad off key)
-Great video card, though I haven't tested it too much. Relying on research here
Cons: This is my second one. First one had a weird battery (shut off randomly around 20%), speakers didn't play right (sounded more to the left than the right, out of the box)
Second laptop still has issues:
-touch pad doesn't work right (left button is hard to press. You have to press near the center). Also not level, deeper on left end
-Keyboard lights are dim even at brightest setting
-speakers sound better but still not very good for my taste
-power button feels plasticy, while programmable button feels fine. I don't understand this at all.
-Screen is quite glarey, but that's my opinion
-When lid closes, it feels cheap. Noticed a very slight warp in the body near the DVD tray. Again another small thing...
Overall Review: I know maybe I'm being too critical on a computer, but I really would like to love this. Performance is amazing but there are just lots of small things that add up and when you are paying close to $1400 on a computer, you just expect a higher standard on build quality!
