Piece of Junk with a Worthless Warranty

andrewms, Amazon
28 April 2012
  • Summary: A month after I bought this computer, the hard drive failed. When I sent it in for warranty repair, they kept it for 3 weeks (not including shipping time) before shipping it back and telling me that they couldn't replace the hard drive because I "installed Linux on it.

Kenneth R. Samuelson, Amazon

  • Summary: This is an exceptional laptop that is fun, easy to use. Light, fast and reliable. Got one for my wife, then I realized I wanted/needed one too. Bought another brand, returned it, and went with this gem.

Fancy, but with severe flaws

Xinhua J., Newegg
6 January 2012
  • Summary: I am not sure if I shall return for exchange for the camera issue or I shall use the shipping fee to just purchase a separate camera (by the way the builtin camera has only 3MP)
  • Pros: Fancy, wife likes the look
  • Cons: 1. fatal flaw: no "USB boot" option in BIOS. remember it does not have an internal DVD drive; and the restore partion is the only way that can be used to retore the system. However, if the harddrive dies (which is often going to in 1 or 2 years), there is no other way to reinstall a system 2. The...

Poor product and poor repair service

Kelly, Amazon
19 December 2011
  • Summary: I purchased this laptop 5 months ago. I loved the color and thinness of the laptop. At 33 days old, it would not start up at all and had to be sent in for repair. It was returned not properly functioning, so it had to be sent back. Now 4 months after that the hard drive has to be replaced again.

after 6 months of abuse...

Jeremy P., Newegg
12 December 2011
  • Summary: This machine is still the best laptop I've ever run. However... don't be an idiot and think this is a gaming machine, and should not be bought for this purpose. It's a super-lightweight laptop. While it handles older games just fine, don't try to play any new graphic intensive games.
  • Pros: After owning this laptop for over 6 months I figured it might help to get a review on how it's held up. Alright so I've run Windows 7, Arch Linux, and Ubuntu Linux on here without flaw, and I've even swapped out the internal HD with a solid state drive, and using the old HD as an external in an e...
  • Cons: One corner has become chipped and shows white under the brown. This chip is more of a testament to my mistreatment of the laptop that it is of the sturdyness however as I have dropped it many, many, many times. There is also places where the really nice feeling finish has "peeled" off. (mostly on...

Great for the right purpose

Anonymous, Newegg
8 December 2011
  • Summary: I decided to get this laptop for it's size and weight. Also, I'll be honest, it looks nice. I had already built my own gaming computer, so I didn't really need a whole lot of power. That being said, this computer isn't slow by any means.
  • Pros: Super light Durable -Was dropped down a flight of stairs and it still functioned perfectly despite some cosmetic damage. Good Quality of Materials -Leathery palm rests and metal case are great
  • Cons: Low Battery Life -I expected more because of the dumbed-down low voltage processor. I get about 3.5 hours on a full charge.

Graphics card died after two months of light use.

A.D, Amazon
11 November 2011
  • Summary: I usually disdain writing reviews in general, but I am compelled to do so on this one. This computer is a piece of junk, period! The video card failed on me after two months of just light use from doing basic research online.
