Battery not as expected

 

Its fast, reliable, lots of ports. Screen is nice, light.. pretty much everything we could want. I purchased this for my wife who typically likes macs, and said it was very comparable to what she would expect in a mac (with better specs)

Batter, no matter what settings I have in windows 8, I can't get more then 2 hours out of it

$600 Ultrabook, nothing better in this price range

 

Overall this laptop is great for everything I have used it for. Gaming, rendering, movie watching, and school (CAD, C++, etc). Very happy with my purchase and would definitely recommend to my friends.

This is by far one of the best laptops I have ever used. Here is why ; The price. You get a one year warranty, just as if you bought it new ; 1920x1080 15.6 inch screen, amazing quality, colors are really good ; Function keys are reversed ( you have to...

Shift key is a bit small, takes a while to get used to ; Battery is hard to replace/change ; Vents are on the bottom, will get hot if you lay it on something that blocks it ; Brightness adjustment is very sensitive at high values ; Not a yoga ; Sharp...

Great for the price

 

People complain about this laptop being "flimsy" and not solid. I think that if you expect something as solid as a macbook, you will need to spend more then half of the price. This is a great machine I bought for college and after building a few...

This is a great buy for the price. The i7 4500u processor and 8gb of ram running at 1600mhz makes this a very speedy laptop and gives it a great experience. Also I have not seen a 1080p screen in this price range. The colors are good, it is very thin...

It might be a con for some people that it does not have a disc drive. I like it though. Also if you really want a drive for this laptop, you can purchase an external one for about $30. Because of Windows 8.1, if you are looking to use google chrome,...

Fast and feels very sturdy.

 

Slim laptop with a touch screen. Feels metalic and of good quality on the outside. Boots up quickly also.

Consumer review by: Hernan (bestbuy.com)

Very good, some design details to improve

 

Overall performance is great, only 2 details to enhance. MousePad is extra sensitive, when you try to click, the mouse always moves. Instead you have to tap it. When you open the laptop, you have to push the laptop down with one hand, while opening the...
