Pros: light weight for its size; nice keyboard; fast shipping; quick web access feature
Cons: touchpad sensitivity issues; screen very glare-prone; display color not brillian
this computer looks like a great deal given the specs (RAM, Processor, HDD), but after using it a couple of days, there is a few annoyances that makes me wonder if i should just return it.
the biggest problem is the touchpad (Alps pointing device). even with the latest driver installed, this device has no sensitivity adjustment. so what happens is, it senses the heat from your other hand maybe resting on the click button, or maybe the palm hovering over the touchpad, either way, it seems to start lagging, sometimes locks up (as if you have two fingers on the touchpad) completely. each time it takes a couple of seconds before the range of motion comes back. and this happens about once every couple of minutes, so the annoyances adds up. especially if you play online games and your pointer is never where you want it to be. I've researched extensively on the internet about this problem, but so far it looks like unless Alps pointing device get an updated driver for this model, there's no solution for it.
The other problem that i noticed was the screen. for some reason the color displays on this varies from really dull at 9/10 brightness to overly bright at 10/10. so as a result the color display is never quite brilliant. Also for whatever reason, this screen material so SUPER prone to glare to light in comparison to my dell laptops.
So overall the computer itself runs fine. Shipped and delivered super fast within 24 hours. Pretty light weight given the 15.5' size. and doesn't seem to overheat too bad like some of the dell i owned.
