Summary: This laptop has really decent specs for its price point. The backlit keyboard is a huge surprise. The stuck pixel was another huge surprise. This laptop would have been perfect with an IPS display. I took this laptop apart and saw that it uses a EDP type screen. You can exchange the screen to an IPS if you would like for around $85+ more. I did the dirty work so the future buyers or current owners can make a decision to upgrade the screen.
Its actually slower than my previous 3 year old laptop with worse specs when multitasking

Summary: I don't have much else to add that others haven't already mentioned, but mine has had issues with saving settings. I have turned off needing a password to sign in 5 times in 7 days. The display power saving technology option that messes with the brightness will not save through a reboot. This means you have to manually turn it off each and every time. Its actually slower than my previous 3 year old laptop with worse specs when multitasking.
Excerpt: THE GOOD: - Light Weight. - All the modern features are included. - Good battery life. - Plays video games as well. - Built in Microphone and Web Cam are both good. - Tiny little A/C adapter, very energy efficient. THE BAD: - Speakers are built into the BOTTOM! - SPYWARE was found on it! - Needs some screen adjustments. OK, so this is a really NICE and GOOD little laptop for the price.
Summary: This is a very detailed and long review. I owned the laptop for three days and decided to return it. At the bottom is my overall pros and cons and recommendation on the laptop if you want to skip the details. First and foremost I am a former mac user. I switched from a MacBook Pro Retina (15" model) to this laptop mainly to save money since all I was using my computer for was internet, word processing, email and music/movies.
Summary: After spending a week looking for a new laptop that would be good for schoolwork and lightish gaming, this looked like the best prebuilt laptop for my budget. I've had it for several weeks now and can say that it has completely satisfied my expectations. It has a great display, keyboard, battery life and build in my opinion.
Summary: I named it B.A.M.F. for reasons you'll figure out soon after turning it on. This thing has some power. With the i7 and the Nvidia Grphx card it hauls some balls. I've been able to stream modern day games while using other apps with almost no lag to my viewers. I've read the reviews talking about screen issues and I'm crossing my fingers as I had not seen them prior to purchase.
