Verdict is still out

  • Summary: I was really excited to get this laptop, I am in the Technology field and work with it all day every day. It is heavy but I knew that going into it. It is a processing beast. Great Screen , many power options. The one thing that has been bugging me is the sensor in the lid that lets the laptop know the ids closed I should go to sleep. Going to sleep isn't a problem, Opening the lid and hitting the power button is.

Fast laptop, so-so compatibility, shoddy case

  • Summary: As others have said, the case for this laptop is a bit flimsy, although I've gotten used to it by now. The screen is great, and flawless. CPU is really fast, and the GPU is nice, but since I am running Xubuntu on it, I have had issues configuring it to utilize all it's power. WARNING: the "optimus" technology supposedly switches between Intel integrated and Nvidia graphics for performance, but is not supported well on Linux.
