Cons: Display became scrambled 3 weeks into owning laptop. When I first received the unit, I ran a full battery of tests on the hardware and everything came back fine. Now the HDD is coming up with smart error, hdd failing. . Sending laptop back within 30 days of purchase.
Summary: I wouldn't hesitate to buy this again. It was a replacement for a friend, made me want to get one.
Pros: GREAT deal for a really good laptop. Body is metal, keyboard and 10 key works great. 7200 RPM hard drive is much faster than the 5400 RPM drives most new laptops get. Dual-band wifi and bluetooth, bonus AMD Radeon 7xxx (I forgot the exact model, but better than Intel graphics) dedicated graphics ...
Cons: The only damage to this laptop was on both rear corners and did not effect functionality. However one of the USB ports was busted. Only knocked one egg off for that and that only.
Summary: The return process is terrible. If there was a cross-ship option, I might consider a replacement. No guarantee the replacement would be any better though. I could have done better on CL.
Pros: Great specs. Fast and responsive. No bloatware.
Cons: C grade condition max. Metal screen shield painted a different shade of gray. Several obvious dimples on it. Bottom scratched badly. Battery does not seat correctly. Screen resolution not published. The model and processor class would make you think the screen resolution would be better than 1366...
