Pros: I just received this Laptop today and have been playing around with it. Even though the keys are not backlit they do have some sort of light surrounding the keys which will make it easier to game at night. The keyboard seems a bit light but makes it nice to type on. The IPS display is quite amazing, I've never had an IPS screen before and I can certainly tell you it makes a huge difference. The computer booted up and installed all the programs I could need pretty easily and quickly. I've installed about 6 games on the SSD so far and they all installed lightning quick with the SSD and 5GHz AC connection. I haven't gotten around to booting up any games and trying them but I will be doing that tonight and updating my review. So far I'm in love with the laptop. If the trackpad was a bit better I would give the laptop 5 stars.

Cons: Like one the users had mentioned, the trackpad is a bit awkward to use. The buttons are touch buttons and not physical button. This is making right-clicking quite difficult for me. I keep ending up left clicking something I intend to right click. It's not something that affects me in a very negative way since I just hook my USB mouse up to it but it is quite annoying if I want to use it.

Overall Review: Great all in all system, very fast and looks phenomenal. My only point of improvement would be to ditch the touch-buttons for the track pad and add physical buttons. Ot
