Pros: I have loved this thing since day 1. Display is lovely, machine is light, battery life is great! This will play all the games I want it to play. TF2 runs great on med settings. Processor rips through everything I've thrown at it. The trackpad takes some getting used to but is great after you do. I use a mouse whenever possible but when I can't, it's not that big of a deal. Boots out of a long hibernation in less than 30 seconds. Plays HD videos with ease. I've installed some more CPU intense programs like Photoshop and Reason and have yet to encounter a hiccup.

Cons: The speakers are weak but honestly better than what I was expecting. It does fine for sharing youtube vids and watching movie trailers and junk with friends. I don't like the big spaces under the keyboard. I get a lot of dust and hair under there.

Overall Review: If you are looking for a machine that will multi-task, do some light gaming, watch movies (I would recommend headphones), or simply just browse, this is a perfect machine.
