    Bad user reviews on TigerDirect
    Sufficient processing power for multi-tasking, internet, music, movies, productivity(Word, Spreadsheets, etc), advanced photo and video editing, 3D graphics, virtualization software(parallels), file and harddrive encryption
    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
    Solid state drive provides quick startup, silent operation, faster response compared to conventional harddrive
    5 hrs battery life is better than average
    Basic GPU allows playing less demanding games (WoW, Sims3, etc) at low detail settings and resolution
    GPU is not suitable for demanding games (Assassin's creed, Black Ops 2,) even at lowest settings
    13.3" screen suitable for portability; not ideal as desktop replacement or gaming
    No built-in CD/DVD drive; Reduces weight but watching movies or installing software from CD/DVD will require separate purchase of optical drive
    Integrated webcam for video chatting
    Processing power might not be sufficient for ultra high requirements such as running simulations

    I've had this laptop for two days so far and it's a pleasure to use as well as gorgeous to look at!It cold boots in six seconds and wakes up from suspend-to-RAM in two; the IPS screen is excellent and... First, let me say the laptop itself is great. Price, design and -- after a series of updates to the trackpad -- overall usability. It's an Air imposter, but a very good one with a nicer display. On it... Slim, solidly built machine. Uni-body construction. Fewer ports built in, but a VGA and Ethernet dongles are included in their own matching case. #1 feature: the MATTE Full HD screen. Feels like I'm w...
