"It is fast, but has tons of design flaws."0.5 starson by taconerd90
Pros: The speakers are amazing for a laptop. It looks pretty. It's relatively fast.
Cons: Touchpad gets insanely hot. Webcam stopped working. Volume wheel is awful. The paint chips off on the click buttons. Wireless connection is glitchy. The USB ports are loose so cables are always slipping out whenever you move at all. Battery is dead.
Summary: A deeper description of the cons (10 reasons to not buy):
1. Whatever it is in a laptop that heats up was poorly placed directly under the touchpad. So after about 20 minutes of use, the touch pad is about 120°F and your finger feels like fire. I had to buy a wireless mouse: $50. 2. The bezel around the screen is not very rigid and the back plastic is very flimsy so my screen ended up cracking from carrying the laptop around in my backpack. Replacement screen: $100. 3. After two years, the webcam quit working completely. The computer doesn't even recognize that it has a webcam. New webcam: $40. 4. The volume wheel is highly inaccurate. Sometimes I scroll it 3-4 times all the way and the volume goes up 1dB. Other times I scroll it 1/2 time around and the volume goes from nothing to blaring loud. 5. The paint is half gone on the click buttons- looks terrible. 6. Memory cards have never worked. Period. 7. If I had a penny for every time I had to restart the computer because it said it couldn't find any wireless networks even though there were multiple networks and the switch was "On", then I could retire. 8. The USB ports are just not the right size. To fix this, I got a USB hub and taped it into my computer, and now I just use the ports on the USB hub. USB hub: $15. 9. After 2 years of declining battery life, it is now down to.. wait for it... 4 minutes. Wow. So basically it is always plugged in. New Battery I'm about to order: $80. 10. The lit up play/pause/back/forward/mute buttons across the top of the keyboard are very, very laggy. Sometimes when you hit the mute button it takes as long as 10 seconds for the music to shut off.
So as you can see, I ended up spending about 300 extra dollars on this computer and it's still a nightmare. Don't buy it.
