The lower side of mediocre.
on February 6, 2015
I don't know how to put this kindly, but for almost $400, I somehow expected better quality. The touchpad sucks. When you click, there is no solid feeling, but a flex followed by a loud plastic 'click'. Scrolling doesn't really work well, but I place partial blame on Windows for that as well. The body of the laptop is entirely black, unfriendly plastic. The bottom is a single piece, which hampers RAM upgrades or quick battery swaps. The screen is decent, but very pixelated. It does have plenty of ports and expansion options, so I can't have to drop any stars for that. The one virtue is the charger. It is a single wall brick and a slender cord, instead of a brick midway through the cord.
I may just be biased, coming from HP and Apple, but these are my impressions.
