great value for a top quality touchscreen laptop
on July 5, 2013
you won't find a better 15.6" touchscreen for ~$500. Three usb ports, HDMI port, internal DVD, 500+ GB HDD, backlit keyboard - there's a long list of great stuff. it's fast, quiet, and doesn't put out much heat (no Dell thigh-burn here). i bought this for work and liked it so much after a few weeks that i bought another one for my family. expect maybe 3hrs on the battery. meh - but that's the market reality.
only real peeve is the physical spacebar response on the keyboard can be erratic when typing fast - it cangetannoying. also the trackpad is very sensitive. it can pick up a contact from your hands/thumbs pretty easily while typing and unintentionally move your cursor downscreen mid-sentence - super annoying. basically, be mindful of your hand position while you type - and be extra assertive with the spacebar.
overall though - this is a great buy for work, school & general family use.
