Worked well before the dying in less than a month.
7 September 2011
Summary: I ordered this laptop on August 19, 2011. It is now September 7, 2011. The laptop worked decently from day 1, it had a dirty problem of taking "forever" to boot up and/or awaken from Sleep mode. Despite the claims of a 2x faster boot speed the system felt like a 3x longer boot speed (Was actually longer, upwards of 3-4 minutes to load windows) I've only used the laptop a few days at school to type out notes, etc. and once when visiting a friend.
