Fantastic deal

Chris, Newegg
2 weeks ago
  • Summary: Definitely worth my money as I bought this as a refurb for $550 after rebate.
  • Pros: -Fantastic screen: once you try a full 1080p screen on this 15.6'', you'll wonder how people even get work done on those typical 1366x738 resolutions. The extra screen space is amazing and definitely worth the money. The brights are bright, and the screen is incredibly sharp. There is an immense amount of screen real estate to utilize despite this being on 15.6''
  • Cons: Touch pad is a bit disappointing as its definitely feeling cheaper than the rest of the computer. It's not a deal breaker as there are wireless mouses, or you can even satisfactorily use the touch pad as your main means of moving the cursor, the only problem I have is that it does not feel incredibly strong, and pressing down the buttons does move the cursor- maybe my touch pad is a tad too sensitive? It feels nice in the hands otherwise, definitely not a huge issue.

1080p touchscreen of awesomeness

Ben W, Newegg
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: Overall close to how I would custom configure a laptop for me.
  • Pros: So far, pleased with this refurb. Shows no signs of past use. The 1080P screen is great. Touchscreen is nice to have option. All the USB3/HDMI/Ethernet ports are there. None of the silly stuff -- optical drive, discrete graphics -- that tend to add weight and battery drain.
  • Cons: Manufacturers should be using SSDs in laptops. Takes about 12 seconds to boot Windows 8.1. For me hard to justify upgrading now, but glad to read others have had no problems swapping in an SSD. Comes with Windows 8.0 installed. Get ready for a half day running windows updates. Luggable weight, but not for those looking for an Ultrabook.

The machine looks good but it came short on a few items

ElRicky, Newegg

  • Summary: Per the previous review suggestions, I will try putting an SSD and see if this quiets down the machine.
  • Pros: Nice 1080p screen, lightweight enough for me. The construction is sturdy enough where I feel like I am not going to break with my larger hands. I think it's quick at processing most of what I need. I am by no means a power user but like responsive systems, slow ones just make me anxious.
  • Cons: I am a bit dissapointed by the amount of noise this machine makes. Now a days, I expected something quieter but maybe I should have gone Apple instead of PC. The fan comes on when it's idle and just the OS has been loaded or I've closed all applications. When I am doing things on the computer it can be quiet for a long time and the fan never turns on.

  • Summary: This computer is incredible. Best $800 I ever spent. This replaced my wife's older laptop. This type of laptop with last a very long time. The 4 gig video card and Touch Screen are the best features.

Great Engineering Laptop

Sam Stone, Amazon
18 June 2014
  • Summary: I am currently an engineering student at Chico State and bought this laptop because it had the most to offer for the price in a lightweight package. It is light enough to carry around and fits in a backpack easily. I was nervous about screen resolution, however i was pleasantly surprised at the pixel density. The touchscreen works great, and the touchpad is nice and big.

A Linux User's Dream, A Great Laptop

tdrusk, Newegg
14 June 2014
  • Summary: You will want to purchase a 16 gb usb drive to make a recovery disk. This disk should not be used for any other purposes.
  • Pros: I have been in search of a nice laptop with 1920x1080, Intel graphics (for Linux compatibility), and i7 processor, good build quality, and planned-out construction and I have found it!
  • Cons: The two cons are the fan and the hard drive.

So far excellent

Giuseppe M., Newegg
6 June 2014
  • Summary: I'm not sure why the other reviews had so many problems. If you're somewhat techy the "rough" transition from windows 8 ->8.1 shouldn't be such a problem. I ran into an error "Failure to update windows - reverting updates" the first time I ran the windows update, but I hadn't uninstalled the video drivers like many reviews on the net said to do.
  • Pros: Great Price $730~ shipped
  • Cons: None so far

Great Performance and Optimal Portability

Logan, Amazon
5 June 2014
  • Summary: I would definitely recommend this laptop to anybody in the market for a Windows 8 touchscreen laptop. This computer can be great for a wide range of computer users - from the social media elite, the programmer, the internet multi-tasker, and the big time gamer. I haven't had this machine 'hiccup' once on me, and it can handle games like Battlefield 3, Borderlands 2, and Tomb Raider on medium~high settings. With a Cooler Master fan, this beast is unstoppable!
