Great computing power, solid battery life
Crisp monitor
Great hardware
Thin and light
Runs top of the line games well, though at lower settings (I've tested DOTA 2 and Titanfall - more in other thoughts
Trackpack leaves alot to be desired. Some bloatware installed
Power plug placement is a bit awkward, but not a deal breaker
Mouse pad is finicky, doesnt always differentiate between 2 finger and 1 finger scrolling
Topscreen is flimsy; when i run my thumb perpendicular to the top right corner of the screen the plastic movesseparates a bit
Personally, I wish the keyboard used a normal font for the lettersnumbers. I am also not a fan of the number pad, which throws off the entire keyboard layout for me
