Fast and Beautiful

Everything as advertised. I did quite a bit of research, and ended-up with this computer. It literally has everything 95% of what I think anyone would need. The i7 quad core processor allows me to have many windows open, with no slow down.
Keyboard LED's with adjustable brightness is not only cool, but functional. The "instant-on" feature is something I could never live without from now on!
The external sub-woofer is very good - not overwhelming but just about right for listening to iTunes in the background while working on other stuff. And it's small enough to not get in the way.
Also, I don't use the Touch Pad - prefer a blue tooth 4.0 mouse - and I can disable the Touch Pad with one button.
The "360 Degree" Wi-Fi radion is also a bonus....my internet speeds increased by 25% over my last comparable notebook.
The HD display is excellent to say the least..a real WOW factor when I've showed my friends.
Summary: Great computer that meets my needs for at least two years, and the price is worth it. I bought mine from the Amazon Warehouse, as "used very good condition" and it had a couple of small scratches on the top lid that were hard to see. and saved about $800 over the new price. I prefer Windows 7 64-bit over WIN 8, even though the newer version has WIN 8.
