I love this laptop. It's lightweight, but fast and has a great amount of hard drive space. The two main problems I have are poor battery life, 1.5 hours on a full battery and the stupid expresscard slot piece falls out EVERY time I put it back in the bag. Other than what I would consider those two minor details, it's a great computer.

I had no problem with this laptop, i just didn't like the design, it gets dirty too easy and it is very soft.

I've had this machine for about a month now, and I'm overall pretty impressed with it. On High Performance battery mode it runs very very smoothly, with hardly any lagging. I will say, though, that I only use this mode when it's plugged in. The battery life is not quite as strong as other laptops (I get about two hours at best), but it's fine to take to lectures for notes. The design is very modern and sleek, with nice white lighted touch-sensitve buttons. The glossy finish looks nice but fingerprints and smudges develop easily (a quick once-over with a cloth takes care of it). Speakers are above-average, they can get loud if the volume is cranked up. Facial recognition log-on feature is impressive and works well. Video card makes for very good visual performance if you run games also. I give this computer a solid 9 out of 10. Highly recommended!
