HOT Slim and Sexy Beast of 14" machine
Pros: - Awesome performance - Battery Life is a lot better than expected. I am able to play games on high performance for more than an hour and do work for around 4+ hours - Great look. I like the simplicity of the flat black - I was worried about the arrow keys but I have had no issues with them - Keys have a great feel but the space bar is a little stiff (not terrible) - Killer bang for the buck with the deals
Cons: - Biggest complaint is the power button and the only real one. First time getting this laptop it wouldn't turn on. After a while an repetitive panic of pushing the power it came on. After that, often times I press the button and the fan kicks on but the laptop doesn't. I have to hold the power button (force turn off) then do it again it works or i may have to repeat to get to turn on. - System runs HOT. CPU is 95C while gaming - The system needs larger primary hard drive than 120 gig - Fans are LOUD when running (especially when they are working their hardest)
Overall Review: Love the machine and would recommend it if the power button would work consistently but it is heart ache.
Disc that came with the device was very generic. I came with multiple applications including software for a phone. I can see why it was done that way but it is still confusing. After digging into the disc to figure which of the ODB2 software that I needed; I came upon read me files and instructions that made me decide not to use the disc at all. Read me had advertisement and URL's to inappropriate web sites. Instructions said that the software is 100% virus free.
