Pros: This is my first laptop, so I'm probably easy to impressed. I got advice from a tech genius on this laptop, so I'm confident that it will do the job for me. I do typical internet surfing and research, and some object-based website development. I store most of my files on a thumb drive. The speed seems great to me.
Cons: These aren't necessarily cons, but something of which to be aware. Windows 8 takes some getting used to. The Start screen relies on apps rather than the usual sites.

Cons: This model has a design flaw in the trackpad that causes the curser to jump randomly around the screen. Unfortunately I did not read the user reviews before ordering this machine however New Egg accepted the return since I had the machine less than 24 hours.

Cons: Still getting used to Windows 8 - I will give it another week or 2 and see if I adjust. Not really a con on the machine, I knew it had Windows 8 when I ordered it, and I can always downgrade it if necessary.
Pros: Good price very powerful laptop. saw a lot of negative on this. But I'm just not seeing all the complaints. yes the keyboard does flex a little it's not a big deal for me. I dj with this laptop with a pioneer controler. runs will great laptop for djs.
Cons: Not a fan of windows 8. really thinking of taking it back to 7.
