Lightest 15-inch business laptop, Excellent keyboard, Fast Core i7 processor, Big battery yielded very good battery scores, A plethora of current connectivity technologies.
Stylish, thin, durable case; relatively lightweight; strong performance; decent graphics; long battery life; three-year warranty
Great CPU power and gaming experience, good battery life for a 15.6" laptop and looks slim and attractive (this ain't your grandma's Tecra!).
AMD graphics doesn't offer that big of a lift in graphics power, Pointing stick feels like sandpaper, Higher resolution would be nice.
Dull display; subpar keyboard; low-resolution Webcam
Keyboard lacks travel, no direct HDMI port.
