Great hardware internally, touch screen is nice, battery life is adequate, and the number pad is good to have. New Egg RMA process. Very quiet. Aluminum case

French Canadian keyboard takes a little getting used to using, REFERB IS JUST A REPACK AND SHIP! First one I received would shut down every time you sneezed... bad connections, like it had been dropped, second one has many signs of wear and space bar...
