Customer Reviews

It is a capable gaming machine, and a good looking one for that.
SelfContainedThinker
This computer will freeze up, will reset itself, will shut itself down, will not boot up, etc.
Joe
If anything, it falls just a little bit above the mediocre laptop audio if I were to rate it.

First off, I got this laptop at BB.

I have searched around for days on end looking for a laptop that is <$700 with good features and performance that can withstand some gaming and photo editing softwares with no problem. For a while I couldn't decide between this laptop and the Toshiba at staples (it has i7 quad core), but what ultimately led me to picking this laptop can be described below.

GENERAL
My first impression of this laptop is that it is very light compared to the traditional laptop/notebook style, however it is not light like you would feel in a sleekbook from HP or an ultrabook for that matter, but there is a difference nonetheless. The hood casing is brushed titanium and so is the inside. The bottom is plastic and is in black. The overall feel and look of the laptop was one of the reason why I fell in love with it (I love the look of brushed metals). The top part of the keyboard is a grill area with a "beats" logo on the far right. The great thing about this laptop is that there are more USB 3.0 here compared to the older USB 2.0 (It has 3 USB 3.0 ports and 1 port of USB 2.0). There's also a DVD-R drive for the occasional burning of DVD or CDs for your pleasure. The bottom of the laptop is very easy to take out if you want to upgrade the memory or the HDD. Also an FYI, it will fit a 9mm or 7mm SSD. The memory is PC3-12800 with a maximum memory of 16GB verified by HP and other memory websites (ex. Kingston and Crucial). There is a webcam if you're into skyping or google video chat, I don't remember the megapixel but the quality is adequate and not that amazing. If you're into security, it has a finger print scanner on the bottom right of the numeric keypad.

1 YEAR UPDATE

Although I first reviewed this item Nov 2013 I owned it since Mar 2013. So far I've upgraded the hard drive to a Samsung Electronics 840 EVO-Series 500GB 2.5-Inch SATA III Single Unit Version Internal Solid State Drive MZ-7TE500BW. BOY IS IT FAST. Windows 8.1 is booting in about 5 seconds.

I've also replaced the built-in Wifi with a Intel Network 6235AN.HMWWB Centrino WiFi Card Half Mini PCI Express Advanced-N 6235 Dual Band Bluetooth. There was nothing wrong with the Wifi it came with, but for ~$25 I gave my laptop Bluetooth 4.0 and dual band (2.4GHz and 5Ghz) Wifi for wireless-N speeds up to 300mbps. Upgrading it was as easy as upgrading my RAM to Crucial 16GB Kit (8GBx2) DDR3/DDR3L 1600 MHz (PC3-12800) CL11 SODIMM 204-Pin 1.35V/1.5V Memory for Mac CT2K8G3S160BM.

I've found a way to get 5.5 hrs of battery life by turning down the max processor speed to 60% while on battery in the AMD Vision Control Center. Very nice!

A year later this is still a great laptop!

WARNING: THIS COMPUTER WILL NOT RUN SMOOTHLY AND WILL CONSTANTLY OVERHEAT AND SHUTDOWN UNLESS YOU TAKE THE FOLLOWING STEPS:
1: Go to [...] and download the drivers for this laptop.
2: Go into power settings and scale the CPU Power to 75%. Note that you will have to do this for all the power modes, plus you'll have to either plug or unplug your power cable and do it again.
3: Purchase a cooling pad. I recommend the Cooler Master U2 which can be purchased here on Amazon at: Cooler Master NotePal Configurable R9 NBC 8PCKA GP
Now you should be good to go. I've had these steps implemented and have had no problems with my PC. But now that's settled, let's get on with the review!
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I've had this laptop for a couple months now, so I feel comfortable in doing a review on it. I actually got this laptop as a replacement for an Acer M5 ultrabook that kept crapping out on me, so I was pretty skeptical on how this one would perform. In short, this laptop is a very fast, well built machine.

A10 processor: The CPU in this laptop is very fast, and contains some on-board graphics. It has a windows index score of 6.9, and can handle games at least at native resolutions. However, because this is an AMD core, it generates more heat, and it is less efficient than Intel equivalents. And while it can play games, it only will for about 10 minutes before overheating, so getting a cooling pad for gaming is a must. On day-to-day tasks, it is fine.
