Pros: Price - was $455 shipped after newegg financing credit
Plenty of ram & Hard drive
runs quiet & cool on lap
Cons: No windows 8 ($15 if you want it although 7 will be supported for at least 7 years anyways)
NO 10 KEY - Wasted keyboard space & poor placement of mousepad. I'm CONSTANTLY brushing against it while typing
Other Thoughts: So far I can never type long without accidently bumping the touchpad with my palm causing stuff to happen that I can NOT replicate on purpose such as multiple tabs opening up, I type on line 3 and suddenly the text starts typing in the middle of line 1 etc. VERY ANNOYING! My Acer before this had a better keyboard and at the same size offered a 10 key by not having 1.5 inch borders on the side which serve zero purpose. I guess I will put a higher priority on fixing the defective screen on that unit so I can enter data easier and let my wife use this one.
Performance wise this laptop is fine, I might get rid of some of the "bloat ware" as others have mentioned because I don't notice any discernable difference in speed between this and my tri-core Acer. I thought this one would blow it away but it's definitely not slow either.
If the keyboard design wasn't so poor I would've given it 4-5 stars.
