Pros: Same as before
Cons: I just started getting dead pixels on the screen and that is the testimony right there to its cheap quality. The screen felt fishy from the beginning anyways.
The thing is also a fingerprint magnet, especially the outside logo side, where every touch is absorbed. The keyboard area gets bad when made contact with for extended time.
Other Thoughts: The thing ran fine, but the cheapness was evident throughout on the outside and it did not seem like a durable machine to last some time.
The battery ran up to good 4 hours when continuously streaming HD content on youtube.
I had to enable 802.11 "d" in device manager to get the 5ghz capability of WiFi to function as it is not turned on by default.
Returning it now and hopefully will be able to find a solid 6th gen i5 machine somewhere.
Pros: Thin, good weight, nice looking, high performance, good price, attractive!
Cons: To me personally, there are no cons, but a few minor issues.
The touchpad is huge but kind of has motion to it so it's not like USB mice or anything, and it makes a significantly loud sound when pressed since the whole thing gets pressed down.
The keyboard could have had capslock and numlock indicators, be backlit, and every key in the middle creates the "echo" sound as if empty underneath in the middle, but the keys themselves are fine.
The actual part that gets hot in the entire thing is to the right of touchpad which is supposed to be palm-cool or something, so irony right there.
The screen itself is nice but the text is warm and not as sharp as in 720p displays and might be annoying to others.
The speakers dont seem to be directed anywhere, so the whole thing is kind of vibrating and you feel it when listening to something.
Other Thoughts: All of the complaints that I have listed are not any major problems for me and I regard machines as you getting used to "it" then "it" adapting to you, so no deal breaker.
Additionally, I would really have liked to see backlit keyboard and some other features in place of the Nvidia GPU, which has added to some of the cost, and which I do not need and in fact is not even required for regular use, but for those wanting to game and such.
I have really been hunting for a nice 6th gen i5-containing laptop for past couple of days and this is the best I could pick on, so I would definitely recommend it to you, if you are not too picky about things.
I might update review later as I have more experience with the computer.
Pros: It works and charges stuff
Cons: Bad plastic material (easily gets scrapped/scratched)
The Small screw for dismantling the plug is useless, the plastic easily wore away and now there is no way to turn the screw to unplug the head. And it happened on the first try too, so....
Other Thoughts: Since it is heavy weight and still works, couldn't give it any lower rating, but that cheap bloody plastic screw ruined it.
I have a similar unit from Belkin, although it has two USB ports and three power, but there is a push button that is for disconnecting the head and the head also rotates, so this brand should learn from them.
