Pros: Pretty good specs. Nothing overly special, nice dedicated graphics card, definetly worth the price. The Intel Core i5 and 6 gigabytes of ram work well with the set up. The texture is nice, not to pronounced. The touchpad is ok. The HDMI port is nice too. Can run quite few good game fairly well. (See other thoughts.) Newegg also shipped my package extremely fast.

Cons: Although a very nice computer, there are a few cons. The button set next to the power button is a bit childish looking, and they aren't very useful. 2/3 of them require a program already open. One of them is to open the disc drive, which is ridiculous because there is also a button on the side for that. There is also a airly large fingerprint trap by the speakers and buttons... Seriously? Why did they make it high gloss around there? The keyboard is also a little small, could have been a little bit bigger. The right shift button is so small, its practically worthless. Also can get pretty hot while playing games, cooling pad definetly recommended.

Other Thoughts: This computer is definetly worth the price. There aren't many laptops for this price that have a dedicated graphics card. It runs games fairly smoothly. I've played Just Cause 2, Sid Meiers Civivlization 5, Borderlands, and a few others. The textured coating isn't exactly scratch-proof, but it adds a nice finish. The textured touchpad is also nice, the texture isn't too pronounced, but I still prefer a normal mouse. There is also a small physical button to turn off the touchpad, which is a really nice addition.
