Summary: The laptop is okay. Drivers are way out of date and you need to mess around with the gpu driver a good bit to get semi-decent performance. The graphics switching is a pain. I recommend disabling it. Also the lights on the laptop do not turn off and can be an annoyance when watching movies/tv on it. Otherwise it is a solid device at a decent price. Still probably not worth buying in 2013. I got mine when they were a much better deal at this price.
Summary: I travel a lot and my computer receives a great deal of handling. Overall, this computer meets my needs in terms of processing. However, the form factor has worn a great deal in four months. I don't expect the computer to stay together more than a year.
