Very good user reviews on Amazon
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
Large amount of memory sufficient for memory intensive applications
Uses conventional harddrive. Higher power consumption, lower shock resistance and longer startup time compared to solid state drive(SSD).
Battery life is unknown.
15.6" screen provides good tradeoff between desktop replacement and portability
Economy display with resolution of 1366 x 768; screen space sufficient for most purposes but less than ideal for graphics design, gaming, programming etc
No built-in CD/DVD drive; Reduces weight but watching movies or installing software from CD/DVD will require separate purchase of optical drive
No integrated webcam; will need separate webcam purchase for video chat (or camera information unavailable)
Processing power might not be sufficient for ultra high requirements such as running simulations
