Summary: It isn't advertzed as so, but its 32 bit. Also, the webcam isn't picked up by Amy program on the laptop (such as Skype), even after updating drivers. Its as if they installed a camera for show. Quite slow to load things. In a final hope to like this laptop, I installed Sims, which is pretty easy going. Even after altering graphics settings, it was choppy. Pretty disappointed altogether, and even more so that I have to pay expensive shipping to return this.
Great at First, but then Overwhelmingly Disappointing as the Days Went By (One Month Update)
3 April 2014
Summary: ONE MONTH UPDATE (MAY 12, 2014--SCROLL DOWN FOR OLD REVIEW) I ordered this product over a month ago, and I decided to return the laptop. I really enjoyed it at first. I loved the aesthetics of the laptop, the feel of the keyboard, the beautiful display, and the great speaker quality. Unfortunately, as the days went by, certain issues that I once was able to overlook continued to worsen overtime, leading me to make a direct 180 of my original perspective of the laptop.
It's a fast computer but I hope you like the Blue Screen of Death

Summary: I bought this a few months ago. Right out of the box it bluescreened but I blamed it on Windows 8. I was going to swap out the hard drive for my SSD and install Windows 7 on it immediately so I didn't think much of it. Stupidly, doing so voided my warranty and didn't fix the blue screen issue. So now I've got a $1200 doorstop that I can't trust to run for more than a few consecutive hours.
Summary: I'm exchanging it for another one, just because I'm thinking that the hiccups I'm having are specific to this particular machine. If the next one I receive has the same issues, I'm returning it. Overall, it's good value for $750, but if I'm buying a new laptop, I expect it to perform how a new laptop should.
Pros: sleek look, great resolution
Cons: Slow boot time, takes 10-15 seconds to boot from standby, has frozen a few times despite no software yet installed, no backlit keyboard (of course I knew this upon ordering, but still is important to mention), a few unresponsive buttons above the keyboard. The touchpad sucks. Left clicking feels like a thumb workout. Windows key is on the right side of the keyboard which is awkward. The AC Adapter on the charger is HUGE. I've never seen such a big adapter on a laptop ...
Summary: Gekauft: 12.03.2013 Bericht: 27.12.2013 Zu Anfang war das Notebook noch top, gelegentlich waren W-Lanabbrüche am Start, aber ansonsten lief es sehr gut. Nach und nach wurde es immer schlimmer! Neue Treiber etc. trotzdem keine Verbesserung! Ich schreibe aktuell meine Bachelor-Thesis und werde im 5 Minuten Takt aus dem Internet geworfen und das Wlan bricht komplett zusammen! Da ich aktuell noch auf das Notebook angewiesen bin, kann ich es nicht einschicken bzw. umtauschen!
Excerpt: Buenos días, A pesar de haber tenido un MSI con un pésimo resultado me lance al riesgo en comprarme este portátil. Tenía un precio genial en PC Componentes y viene con una tarjeta gráfica NVIDIA GT 765M fantástica (que era lo que yo buscaba). Si bien es cierto que 500GB de disco duro no son suficiente hoy en día para guardar todo lo que tenemos metido en nuestros ordenadores, lo que pensaba que sería la solución B de almacenamiento y rapidez (ponerle un SSD) no fue tan...
Pros: Atención al cliente bastante buena
Cons: Robustez, capacidad de disco duro, velocidad, precio, accesorios
