Summary: I have only had this laptop for about a week now and I would recommend it. I can honestly say that this is the best keyboard I have ever used. I type non stop daily for school and for work. It just feels amazing on my finger tips and the words just flow beautifully. The processor is super fast and with the I7 chip there is really no need to get a graphics card unless you do heavy gaming. The screen is decent.
Summary: Bought this laptop a week ago and I'm lovin it! 1080p screen looks nice although it doesn't have the best viewing angles, super fast with the new 4th gen i7 quad core processor and 16GB of RAM, never experienced lag so that's great. Not a heavy PC gamer so im pretty satisfied with the nVidia GT 740M graphics card. Only pet peeve is the short battery life and how some of the keys aren't lit up.
Summary: I have had my P50 since November, and have used a variety of other laptops over the years from work. This replaced my personal desktop, which became very unreliable. I have fiddled with the power settings and am frequently getting upwards of 4 or more hours on the battery. The power transformer IS heavy, though it is kicking out 19 volts versus 5 for others and provides a quick full charge.
Summary: I got this laptop on January 2nd. It's a good laptop. It would be 5 stars but this morning when I started it up, it deleted all of my desktop icons. I had to shut down then turn it back on 3 times before they came back. But other than that, It's really fast, 15 second startup, and it can run games fairly well. I can run TF2 at over 100 FPS which was really surprising considering the gaming specs.
Summary: I needed a laptop that was going to be good for personal and business use. I did a alot of research and was looking for a good laptop with great connectivity (HDMI, 4 USB ports - 2 of which are 3.0, not too heavy and decent battery life). The screen resolution is fantastic. I even dropped a 250GB Solid State Drive into it and the computer is super fast.
Summary: The fine print is the shoddy video card (GT 740M), instead of the far superior (GTX 765M) found in more expensive machines that host the 4700MQ processor. Unless you're an avid gamer this shouldn't be a significant factor. It does have full HD 1920 X 1080 and 2 GB dedicated video which is a surprising plus for a machine so cheaply priced.
Summary: Bought this Dec 29 and has met all my expectations so far. Use the Skype for Desktop as the preloaded Skype for Win 8.1 is a pain (never got it to work). Took two days to transfer/load files and software from my Toshiba P205. This P50 laptop is highly recommended. Would have liked to see the review that gave a 1.
Summary: Great laptop! Best one I've had! Really fast, doesn't over heat. Battery is lasting me 4-5 hours, using the internet and other everyday things. Appearance is great, looks like a well designed, expensive laptop, very thin, great keyboard. Starts up fast. This laptop is also Energy Star. The charging cord is really big though, bigger than any I've seen. In my opinion, the biggest problem with it is that it has windows 8.
Summary: I always look for reliable CPU and Graphics Card when buying laptop, for the very reason that these two cannot be upgraded, and this one the bomb. Pros: Fast CPU at 2.4GHz (4 cores) (8 cores on boot), dedicated Graphics at 2GB plus the 16GB system memory. Fast and excellent for almost all of the current software and games out there. Quiet fan also though it is located to the right side. Great 1080p viewing.
