Summary: This laptop comes with windows 8. This is a very subjective OS and can't put this on either pros or cons seeing that I actually like it. The wireless card on here is weird with my wireless Linksey's modem while downloading games from Steam. If I download a game from Steam for a extensive amount of time it stops my Linksey's modem for the entire home.
Pros: The design of this laptop is very stylish. Dirty fingers will show up easily though. It is very lightweight due to the fact it has no CD/DVD drive installed inside the laptop. The price performance ratio is spot on for light gaming and school work reasons. If your going in for animation or video editing a laptop with a quad-core processor is suggested over this one. It has four speakers underneath the speakers and the sound quality is excellent.
Cons: The mouse pad is terrible. The left and right click buttons are combined in with the mouse pad. This causes accidental movement when attempting to click something.
Summary: I bought this as a Christmas present and it perfectly matched my expectation. Not all touch screen laptops have a responsive touch but this one impressed me. The fully metallic body is very nice and so is the Crystal lit screen and 4 way Dolby surround speakers. Very nice for home and personal use. Not to miss the backlit keyboard which makes working in dark a cakewalk. I would recommend this to anyone....
