Everything about this laptop is pretty much perfect

  • Summary: Everything about this laptop is pretty much perfect... screen display is excellent. It's fast. It has linux pre-installed. Everything works. My only complaint is the keyboard. The layout is pretty bad. "home" "end", "page up" and "page down" all have to be accessed by a function key. That's just silly considering how wide the keyboard is. My old Lenovo managed a much more usable layout with 2 inches less space.

Great laptop for a great price!

  • Summary: This laptop is very well made and quite powerful. This would be perfect except for three issues: 1) the touchpad is very large(which shouldn't be a problem) except that even after selecting the "disable touchpad while typing" option, I still ending clicking on other areas of my screen while typing. I have installed other linux distros and even windows 7 to test the touchpad out--and the problem persists across every OS.

AVOID - please please avoid - By from a reputable company.

  • Summary: what rubbish. the speakers are essentially useless. the screen isn't bright enough and is no, by any stretch of the imagination rue HD - it remains fuzzy. I bought one of these and from the second I had it I was disappointing. For a start, the drivers dont work - particularly the wifi drives as they constantly drop connection. The speakers are useless... properly useless. The screen is not glorious like they tell you - its average. Now for the good stuff.

Makes a great linux/bsd laptop

  • Summary: Got the laptop so we could get DragonFlyBSD up and running on it. Didn't expect it to work perfectly since most of the hardware is bleeding edge. It is serving admirably in giving me a platform to get various things up-to-snuff on DFly and I assume it works fine with Ubuntu. The Haswell cpu is ridiculously fast. Operating battery life is still on the low side (~3 hours). Display is gorgeous though and the system is stable.
