I didn't notice when I ordered though, this unit does not have an optical drive for CD/DVD/Blue Ray. This might be an issue to consider, however, I can't remember the last time I had to use optical media anyway. You can get a portable self-powered unit...

I was very impressed with this unit, it has the best balance of price point, features, and performance (i5, USB 3.0, Bluetooth, backlit keys, touch screen, light weight) ; Upgradable to 16GB RAM ; No bloatware to speak of except the included antivirus...
