"Outstanding Value and Performance"4.5 starson by rmaha65
Pros: I bought this machine and after 2 weeks have nothing but good things to say about it. Compared to my 7 year old XPS dual core with 4GB RAM, this thing screams with 16 GB RAM and a 250 GB SSD. Plays games very well and the screen is gorgeous.
Cons: My one nitpick is that finding the audio out jack for my Bose speakers was a bit challenging (turned out it was on the side, not the back) so now there's a plug sticking out of the side but the sound is incredible so it's not a bad trade.
Summary: I bought it with Windows 7 as I'm not quite ready to make the jump to 8. Many reviewers complain about the reflectiveness of the screen but I don't have a problem with it. It's almost like a mirror when it's off, but you barely notice the reflection when it's lit up and running. The system is extremely quiet, again a huge improvment over my old Dell that acted like a Japanese Nuke Plant going on cooling overload whenever I'd try to run a high graphics program. Overall, very happy with this computer.
