Pros: I don't write a lot of reviews, but considering how much research I did prior to buying this laptop, I figured I should give back. I heard that this laptop was loud and hot, but I also liked the form factor. My thoughts are below: The laptop does get a loud and hot while playing games, but not unbearably loud. It plays games well and the screen is nice and bright. I replaced the hard drive with an SSD, which required removal of quite a few screws (be careful of ribbon cables!) Not a lot of bloatware, but I installed Windows 7 from scratch.

Cons: Laptop does get hot, but that's to be expected I don't really care for the keyboard (takes a little getting used to) and really don't care for the trackpad. I am spoiled from using a Macbook however. I also didn't buy the laptop to write a novel! :)

Overall Review: Thin form factor with a 765M and I7. Sweet!
