Editors Didn't Like

  • No blu-ray drive. Bloatware. Short battery life
  • A little bulky; Below-average battery life
  • Weight, Battery Life, No SSD in the configurator
  • The thick, inelegant body won't impress anyone. For the money, I'd rather have a high-end GPU and midlevel CPU than the other way around
