Ok laptop, but built in ethernet port failed after a couple of months.
4 weeks ago
Summary: Performance wise this laptop had no problems, however after a couple of months the built in ethernet port failed (wireless still works fine). I purchased a CSL - USB 3.0 Gigabit Ethernet / Network Adapters (RJ45) to use with it. Since then there have been no more issues with this laptop, which works fine.
Summary: Screen quality is ok, can be better. Coulours look bland and black levels are shocking. If your looking for a good quality screen, do not get this laptop. Build quality is good, love the keyboard, specs are very good and does everything with ease. Really like the hardware and how slim it is, just screen qaulity is a letdown.
Not bad - not great for those who use function keys a lot

Summary: This is just okay. If you are a software developer like me, using the function keys a lot, then you should think twice before going for this. The function keys can be used only by depressing the Fn key and the appropriate function key. So two keys to be used simultaneously. For example, if you need to press F1, you have to depress Fn and then simultaneously press F1. Otherwise F1 has an additional function on it (mute). It mutes the speakers on the laptop!
Summary: I purchased this on Amazon for £449, because the specs seemed good and it was about 100 quid cheaper than its retail price. It arrived promptly courtesy Amazon's excellent service. It was packaged well and it was evident that it is a brand new laptop. I opened the package and set up the laptop. In the looks department it is a fairly sturdy looking lappy minus the sleek curves that we see in some of the other brands.
Summary: The laptop was a surprise Christmas present and I only discovered recently that it had been delivered with one of the feet missing, which means my partner has to balance it with a post it pad! Unfortunately, he didn't tell me at the time as he thought it would upset me. Is it possible to have a part sent?
