Summary: I did months of research because the only reason I needed a PC is for Photoshop. The display is sharp and the keyboard is great, I was even surprised by the sound quality. The only issue I had upgrading to windows 8.1 is that you have to do all the windows 8.0 upgrades before the 8.1 upgrade shows available at the Microsoft Store.
Summary: I am very happy with laptop itself, everything meet or exceed expectations.Like usually always something: I would like that come with Windows 7 instead of Windows 8, but again overall very happy. Laptop came on the time and was in original box. Happy camper !
Powerful and speedy workhorse -- worth every penny!

Summary: Heavy duty laptop for heavy duty work. I purchased this laptop as a secondary laptop since my primary laptop is getting older, but I find that I spend more time on this laptop than my other one, even much of my data and applications are on the other computer. I love the loading speed, touchscreen, backlit keyword, and just workhorse power of this laptop.
Great notebook computer, smoking fast with an added SSD

Summary: Followed the directions posted here for installing the Samsung 840 Pro series 256GB SSD and this thing works great. Boots to log in about 15 seconds (I've already loaded a bunch of software that slows it down too, before the added software it booted in about 7 seconds). Super slim, had to bite the bullet on Windows 8 and have had a few problems with USB 3.0 hubs crashing the OS but overall I'm very happy with this system.
Summary: I love everything about this laptop. The display is gorgeous Full HD. The JBL speakers are fantastic. The touchscreen is very responsive as well. I do have a couple issues with this Laptop though. It came with a dead pixel to the left center of the screen, it's only really noticeable when watching darker videos or darker backgrounds. But during those particular times, it can be quite annoying.
Summary: I must say, this laptop was a great purchase and I have zero regrets. Its a touch on the heavy side for a laptop this size, but the trade off is an easy one; its feels incredibly sturdy. There are couple of issues that are definitely not make or break, but are quality of life wishes and things to maybe consider: - Windows 8, while not as awful as it is made out to be, is pretty bad. The curve is somewhat steep moving from Windows 7, but not insurmountable.
Summary: **update 8/21** this computer screams...no junk..nothing! i took things a step further (i guess i was bored) the other week and completely formatted the laptop with a fresh copy of windows 8 via usb. this gets really kinda techie so if your not up to the task just skim over this part of the review. from Microsoft's terms of service. "May I make a backup copy? Yes, you may make a single copy of the software for backup purposes.." do the following at your own risk.
Summary: Love this new laptop. Affordable and durable compared to Apple Mac products and top-of-the-line brand that competes with any laptop right now on the market. Great battery power and life too. The audio is solid and the screen resolution is up-to-par. The only real challenge is getting on board with Microsoft Windows 8...which like all new operating system entirely on a different approach (this one--touchscreen) it will take some time to get used to!
Summary: I have been purchasing things on Amazon for years, and this is the first time I have written a review, although I have read thousands of them and I find them extremely helpful. I followed the advice of others and switched the hard drive with an ssd. I only had the computer for 2 days when I did it. I was very nervous about messing with a new computer. The hardest thing in the whole process was getting the back off the computer.
