Runs fast, but shoddy hardware

Pros: Very fast processing and great graphics. Can run pretty much anything you ask it to. Great speakers for a laptop.

Cons: Have had hardware issues since the beginning. Specifically, I get a fluttery screen far too often and have to put the computer to sleep to get it to clear up. Also, the keyboard cuts out sometimes for no reason. There's an audio issue that gets very annoying. Specifically, the audio turns garbly and buzzy when running it through an HDMI cable. I've tried to run different programs and run into the problem with all. The only solution is to unplug the HDMI and plug it in again. This gets problematic because the audio issue happens about every 45 minutes or so.

Overall Review: Bottom line is that when it's running issue-free, it's a great laptop. Unfortunately, that is far rare than I expected. The trade-off you get with this machine is great performance but constant baby-sitting.
