Summary: I have owned this model laptop since 2012, and it hasn't given me a single issue. It gets used on a daily basis. After two years the battery should probably be replaced, but other than that, this is the best laptop I have ever owned. Plenty of speed and memory to do a lot of things on it.
Summary: Though I didn't buy this laptop. I have tried one from a friend of mine. Good CPU. Basic graphic card which is enough for most of games. Screen is ok but I feel foggy when gaming. Fan is not good. This laptop basically starts to get very hot on the fan part 10 min after in game.
Summary: So far I am satisfied with the performance. The boot time is indeed less than 20seconds and multitasking is well handled. Though windows 8 is a drawback, I can always remove it. The audio is decent. It can get quite loud but loses richness. The screen is not as bad as I expected. It definitely has limited viewing angles but gives satisfactory viewing. I havent tried any games as yet but I am hoping for a good experience. NOTE: The USB ports are a VERY tight fit.
Summary: Love this laptop. 3rd gen i7 and GeForce 630m video card are great for my needs. For the small amount of gaming that I do, it looks great. No problems multi tasking, watching videos, and playing music.
