Pros: I am thoroughly impressed with this machine. I bought this for school as well as some gaming on the side. However, my gaming on the side is not "light" by any stretch of the imagination. I bought this in order to play games such as Battlefield 4 when I'm not at home. So far through some light testing this machine is able to run BF4 at low at 1080p at about 60 fps.It can run it at a higher setting but I'm a competitive player so I need at least 60 fps. At 1600x900 (which doesn't look bad at all) my framerates literally double. The included mSata ssd is very nice and fast alongside the 1tb HDD. Overall this laptop blows all the competition out of the water at this point. When using a cooling pad the fans actually stay relatively quiet even after hours of gaming. Also, the screen is very bright and vibrant with fantastic viewing angles. And of course it is EXTREMELY thin and light!
Cons: Battery life is slightly below average for a Haswell. Fans can get a bit noisy when doing everyday tasks. Touch pad is average.
Overall Review: I would definitely reccommend this to anyone who's looking for a great gaming/productivity laptop in a small package.
Customer Service Deserves a Lawsuit
Pros: The mouse was by far the best mouse I've ever used while it was working properly. After about 3 months the mouse decided to shut off randomly.
Cons: After three months, out of nowhere, the mouse began to shut off constantly for no apparent reason. Through some investigation I realized the wire end that is connected to the mouse is loose and will shut off the mouse when it is bent in a certain way. So I contacted customer service, which was no small feat since they make you create an account on their site then you have to search through multiple pages to find the email to contact them by. It is never a good sign when there is only an email to contact a company by. After a few days I finally got a reply, which simply said they think the mouse is defective and told me to contact yet another email. It has been two weeks since I sent my second email and still have yet to get a response.
Overall Review: I absolutely praised this mouse when it was working due to its amazing ergonomic design and button layout. But after spending 80 dollars on a mouse that only worked for 3 months and finding out that customer service is atrocious I DEFINITELY DON'T RECOMMEND THIS MOUSE TO ANYONE.
