Summary: Mixed on this one. It's very annoying that the mouse pad is so easy to hit when you are typing. It is slightly offset from the center of the keyboard causing it to be easy to tap with your thumb when you are typing. Start typing away and look over at the screen and discover that it is not even close to what you wanted. Mixed on the speed. Somethings seem to smoke along and others run slowly. Definitely get rid of the McAfee.
The track pad is super sensitive so it sends you all over the screen

Summary: Just recieved this today and it looks and feels really cheap. I always buy budget laptops so it's not the pricepoint. The track pad is super sensitive so it sends you all over the screen. On every pc and/or laptop I've worked on, the mouse pad/mouse has to be depressed to click it, this is so sensitive that if you roll over it, you've activated it. It is made of really cheap plastic.
Summary: As other reviewers have noted, this is a fast computer, and for me it has been a huge upgrade over my older Acer desktop running Intel Pentium CPUs. This one comes with Intel i5, which is a fantastic processor. The touchscreen works really well, which is nice, however, for me, it has come with a huge trade-off as the trackpad did not work correctly out of the box.
Summary: Pros: - Keyboard is really good. Has good key response. Backlight is useful in dark areas. - Touchpad is good. Not as good as a macbook but works ok. - Body material seems durable. It is a mixture of plastic and aluminum (on the back part of the screen only). Although it flexes when you apply a little force diagonally. Cons: - Screen viewing angle is very small. If you are not looking exactly from front, even the slightest angle changes colors.
