"Best ultrabook laptop at this price point"4.0 starson by paganop
DVD player in an ultrabook
Cons: Colors are washed and reproduction isn't great
Touchpad can be finicky but you can shut it off
Summary: I bought this to replace a 3-4 year old Sony. I am pretty tech-savvy but I don't need an annual upgrade!
Look, this isn't a Mac and it's not supposed to be. It's also not a high end, expensive unit and shouldn't be graded as such. The unit runs around $699 at Best Buy and for the price, you get quite a bit: 500GB of storage along with a small SSD to keep the thing fast. A DVD player/burner is included. You get 6GB of ram which is more than most others. You get a decently responsive touch screen to run Windows 8.
The only bad thing I can find is that the color reproduction really isn't good and the colors are washed. This is not the best laptop for photographers or movie buffs but the screen works and I've seen worse. The resolution is not the best either but for the most part, it beats my 3 y/o Sony Vaio.
All in all, if you want some decent specs along with function in a 14" laptop that looks pretty sharp and has some old school flair, this is probably your machine. I looked around to find a better screen and at this price point, you can't really get one in an ultrabook type laptop.
I'm happy with mine.
Thanks for your submission!
