Essentially, it looks like this is bound to become at $500 paperweight. In conclusion: BUYER BEWARE. I have had nothing but problems with this computer.

Summary: The touch pad is sometimes too sensitive and sometimes not sensitive enough. If you accidentally touch the pad with two fingers for a split second, all of a sudden you just zoomed in or out and have to readjust the screen. Also the cursor will get stuck and will not move around as precisely as my much older laptop. Others in this comment section have said the exact same thing. I'm not the only one.

After couple of weeks, it started having a blue screen problem: Suddenly, the screen was becoming blue and was shutting down, without warning.
