Fantastic laptop at a great price.
on 19 August 2013
I've had this laptop for almost two weeks now and I can say it truly is the best purchase I've ever made on Amazon. The build quality is excellent and it is a very aesthetically pleasing. The specs on this laptop are excellent for the price; I have several resource hungry applications and Windows 7 running as virtual machine and everything is running smoothly.
As for people complaining about Windows 8 being pre-installed; you can upgrade to Windows 8.1, install Start8 ([...] to replicate the Windows 7 start menu, and change the settings to boot directly into Desktop mode rather than the Metro UI. After this Windows 8 will look / act almost identical to 7.
