Lots of things to like about this laptop

Summary: I rated this 4 starts instead of 5 because (1) although it supposedly has a 20GB SSD, I don't see the SSD on the explorer list of drives, and (2) I've had it lock up on Mozilla Firefox a couple of times - although that may be Firefox and not the computer.
Summary: I bought one of these refurbished PC's and recommended one to my brother, who also bought one. I didn't get a chance to do anything with the one I purchased right away, but when I did, all was good for about a week, when I got a blue screen with a message that indicated the hard drive had issues.
Summary: Had this for a year now and am quite satisfied with the epic performance regarding gaming and 2D/3D creativity. Keyboard feels really bad though (gaming fine, typing not), and adding to that I have a few keys refusing to respond and a malfunctioning battery meaning no portability.
Pros: Light, powerful all-round
Cons: Things you don't normally expect to go wrong
Summary: I got this computer last summer. It is a very good computer, at least I think this way, and it can run many games with high graphics settings. One of the negative things about this computer is the fact that it overheats very easily.
Pros: Lightweight, great for gaming, relatively small to be carried around in a backpack
Cons: Overheats easily when playing games, air comes out at the bottom and not the sides, trackpad is not that good
Summary: First machine arrived dead - would not charge or power up. This was returned to Amazon and replaced but I was left with the return cost €48. The laptop is well made and the screen reasonable for the price. It is reasonably fast with good battery life. The pre-installed windows 8 is terrible.
Summary: I have found that this laptop is perfect for school, cheap for what it can do, and runs well i recomend rent one to see if you like it then buy it if you do. the one bad thing is that the trackpad isn't great but that aside it is a perfect computer
Pros: Good For School: light, compact, easy to use, awesome features
Summary: First of all, I would like to mention a few things about the Amazon service that I received with this order. I placed an order on a Friday, and paid extra for next day guaranteed Saturday before 1pm delivery.
Summary: I've got this laptop for a while now, and one of main things I bought it for was gaming performance, and I think it does great. I've been playing Borderlands 2, X-COM ET, Civilization V on it with good graphics settings.
Pros: Battery life, Decent GPU for gaming, CPU Speed
Cons: USB Ports on the back, Overheats when gaming (fixable), Sound (tin can tinny)
Summary: A decent laptop if you are looking for something that just squeezes into the 'ultrabook' dimensions/weight criteria, has a decent enough processor, a dedicated graphics card and a relatively good battery life (for light use).
