Very good user reviews on Amazon, Newegg
Most powerful processor available
Memory sufficient for multi-tasking, internet, music, movies, productivity(Word, Spreadsheets, etc), basic photo and video editing
Memory may not be sufficient for simultaneous editing of large number of photos and videos, virtualization software(parallels), engineering and simulation software, etc
Uses conventional harddrive. Higher power consumption, lower shock resistance and longer startup time compared to solid state drive(SSD).
Battery life is unknown.
Medium GPU allows playing most demanding games, but only at low detail settings and resolution, and less demanding games (WoW, Sims3, etc) at high settings and resolution
GPU is not suitable for latest, demanding games (Assassin's creed, Black Ops 2, etc) at high or medium detail settings and resolution
15.6" screen provides good tradeoff between desktop replacement and portability
Weight of 5.6 lbs is typical for this screen size
Economy display with resolution of 1366 x 768; screen space sufficient for most purposes but less than ideal for graphics design, gaming, programming etc
Built in CD/DVD drive; allows watching movies and software installation from CD/DVD
Integrated webcam for video chatting
Processor is more powerful than necessary for typical tasks such as multi-tasking, internet, music, movies, productivity(Word, Spreadsheets, etc), basic photo and video editing. Could downgrade to save money

So far, this is a nice machine. However, the specs on the disc are not correct on the listing. Here is what the disc actually is:Hitachi Z5K500 SpecsInterface: SATA 3GbpsCapacity: 500GBSector Size: 4K... Laptop has been great, only real issue is that is switches boot options at times and has difficulty booting up. Easily fixed. Macafee is a serious nuisance as always.... I have been using this laptop for half a year. The best thing about it is it does not get hot. It also runs fast, and rarely crashes.The screen is nice and big.Good value for money.... This is a great computer, it worth every penny. Just the keyboard sounds a little weird, but everithing else is just great....
