Summary: I love the size and form of this laptop. The screen is superbright and I love it. But I'm having some memory/display driver issues. It struggles when the display powers off....something is hogging memory and preventing the display from powering back on. I've only installed sugarsync, MSOffice, and syncing.net. 3 programs I've run on all my PC's for years with no problems. So I don't know what is causing the issues yet.
Summary: I originally said in this review that "this laptop's optical drive bay --- not the Blu-Ray drive shipped in it, but the bay --- is likely to fail (outside the warranty period) due to an Intel design flaw" (the infamous Sandy Bridge SATA problem). Having investigated further, I now think I said that in haste, and retract it with apologies to those it may have misled.
