    Very good user reviews on Amazon
    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.
    14" screen suitable for portability; not ideal as desktop replacement or gaming
    Built in CD/DVD drive; allows watching movies and software installation from CD/DVD
    No integrated webcam; will need separate webcam purchase for video chat (or camera information unavailable)
    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
