Great music computer!
General
What is your overall opinion of this product?
This is a first-class laptop optimized for music and multimedia.
Ease of Use
How easy is this product to use? How well are the controls and connections laid out?
It's a pretty standard laptop layout -- anyone familiar with Windows computers will get around it right away. One nice touch -- a hardware button to quickly switch between high-performance graphics and Intel graphics (slower but lower power for battery).
Features
Are the features on the product what you were expecting? What are your favorite features?
Great things: 1). It really is blazing fast. 2). The screen is gorgeous, bright, spectacular. 3). High-performance graphics, dual drive including one SSD, quad-core cpu, all lead to excellent performance. 4). Some high-performance "gaming" computers are very noisy. The fan on this one is relatively soft and unobtrusive and the computer stays cool. I would say the keyboard is very good but not great. I'm not fond of the touchpad -- it's small and has a rough texture -- I am using a Logitech T650 external touchpad and like it better, but the built-in one is fine for when I travel.
Value
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
The price is very reasonable for what you get.
