    The specs of the laptop are really good and this shows in its performance.
    Build quality of the laptop was very disappointing. It marks to easily and never looks clean. I don't like the touchpad either.

    There's a serious USB related problem. Every 5 min all USB devices on a bus get re-initialized / dropped. This is regardless of what device you have. And if you are copying files on to or from USB drive, this is a kind of show stopper!

    Pretty good performance for the price

    Decent GPU
    Won't accept 3rd-party Wireless cards - meaning I'm stuck with an awkward proprietary Linux driver.

    If you put SSD it will be very fast. fine processor for notebook, fine quality, battery is good.
    video card is just trash. I upgrade RAM to 8 GB but cant give more memory to video

    resolution of screen is very small

    Enough power for everyday use and occasionally gaming
    Runs hot like every AMD unit. Body too much "plastic" and sometimes squeeky
