Disadvantages: Short Battery Life
I'm currently using the desired laptop to write this review!
I've had it for about 4 months and I haven't encountered any problems at all; no performance issues, no graphics issues and no problem of any kind.
Though there hasn't been any problems, the laptop includes a few technical pieces of hardware which includes an Intel i7 CPU turbo-boost which can change the CPU limit from 2.2 GHz to 3.1 GHz if any programs require it. The only nitpick I had with that is the desired programs that I use constantly demand more than 2.2 GHz so I wanted a way to keep the CPU limit at 3.1 GHz. After a thorough search, I found that switching the battery-mode to High Performance fixed this however, the battery would only last 2 hours max. That's the only nit-pick i've had thus far!
Everything else about the laptop is amazing! The NVIDIA GeForce GT635M is superb; clocking in about 2GB of dedicated GPU graphics memory, this combined with a turbo-boosted 3.1 GHz of CPU power can run most modern games at Medium-High quality such as Call of Duty: Black Ops II and ARMA II.
The 6GB of RAM is suitable for most things but if that's not enough, there should be 2 free RAM slots so you can add more memory, the provided OS is already 64-bit so don't worry about upgrading that too and losing compatibility of your 32-bit programs.
The HDD is partitioned into 3 drives which includes the main C Drive, a spare D Drive and a P Drive for backing up your C Drive. This all amounts to 750GB of memory.
The laptop comes with a bunch of extra surprises such as a Blu-Ray drive for playing high quality Blu-Ray films and a whopping 15.6" screen!
Summary: A perfect pick for playing modern games and media!
