Bad Battery

 

I didn't think having an inaccessible battery would be a big deal, but after it ships as a defective product, it would have been nice to be able to just get a new battery instead of having to get a whole new product.

Good non-gaming laptop for a good price ; Back-lit premium keyboard

Battery doesn't hold a charge - because I kept the laptop plugged in while I did all the initial setup, I didn't find out until I had transferred everything onto it ; Battery not made to be user-accessible ; harman/kardon speakers sound like normal...
