Cons: CPU throttling under full load, GPU throttling under full load on battery, Even tough the hard drive is not particularly slow, we expected a faster model for this price. An mSATA slot, which would allow the user to optionally upgrade the notebook with a fast Solid State Drive without replacing th...
