Good performance, average looks and a bit on the noisy side

Summary: There are good things and bad things about this computer. Pros - Performance. This thing is blazing fast. Programs load quickly, and browsing happens without a hitch. Streaming video plays perfectly, even multiple streams from different sites (though, one could argue that is a Flash thing, not a spec thing.). Photo Editing and spreadsheets fly by. Haven't really dug into games yet, but I'm sure they will be amazing.
Summary: After few hours of using this laptop, I seem to like it. Pros: Fast, small form-factor, matte display, SSD (super-fast) Cons: Keyboard is cramped little bit (13.3 inch MacBook keyboard better spaced than this.
Summary: Finding balance between a good gaming system and portable notebook is a difficult endeavor. There are plenty of 15.6" or 17" screen systems out there that are able to pack the highest performing components inside, but leave your shoulder/back aching. On the other side of the spectrum, there are a number of sleek, ultra book class notebooks that are easy to carry, but leave you wanting more performance.
