Mid-Range Device... That's being generous

"I bought this laptop with the idea that it would last a while, and I wouldn't be complaining. I was definitely wrong. Not only was it laggy, but even at it's maximum performance setting it wasn't able to handle any of the programs the sales associate said it would. The sad thing is that I purchased the most expensive model 59422158 because I wanted top of the line. The screen was beautiful when it was on it's brightest, and overall it's a good looking system. If you're looking for something that can perform more advanced processes, it's probably best to avoid this system."
"So we once again have a tablet mode (ideal for drawing) yet with no pressure sensitive stylus and palm rejection. Not sure how these guys continue to miss this. Back she goes. Who sits in on their production and engineering meetings?"
"I really LOVE Stand Mode! I’m an accountant always working from a stack of papers and I can get the built-in keyboard and track pad out of the way! Now I can put papers in front of me and a wireless keyboard off to the side – true desktop replacement but still portable. The built-in keyboard is nice and satiny smooth. The trackpad is not the best, but I don’t use it. Everybody asks why a 15 inch: It’s the number pad! I can’t believe the new 15” Sonys don’t have one. The i7 with the 1TB drive is fast and stable. The HD screen is beautiful, but has a brownish cast. Control Panel > Appearance and Personalization > Display > Calibrate Color and you can lower the red about half an inch and the green about ¼ inch and it will look better. You will want to run it at full brightness, and the battery will last about 2 hours. Things are tiny on the HD screen. But with touch, you can pinch-to-zoom! It works on browsers and MS Office, not everything. Zoom out for spreadsheets, zoom in to read."
"I bought one of these about nine months ago, it is a great computer and works great. But now the usb ports are breaking, I can't plug anything in or charge anything. I had a Lenovo before and I loved it and it worked perfectly, so I would suggest buying a Lenovo, but not this one."
"I got the version that had a DVD rom and backlit keyboard included.
It's a great laptop for the price! The keyboard seemed to flex a little at first and I wasn't sure how it would hold up, but after a week I can safely say I haven't noticed any issues at all.
It took a while getting used to the multi-touch touchpad, had pages zooming in and out at random, till I found out I was accidentally pressing on it with my palm while trying to click.
I also made the mistake of shutting down in stand mode (at least, I *think* that's what caused the problem, since it hasn't happened again since). My mouse and keyboard were not detected after restarting and the only thing to help was the "Refresh my PC" option.
Overall, my issues were actually more user errors and Windows bugs than a problem with the laptop itself. Which is why the laptop still gets a solid rating. Great features and specs for a great price!"
"The 1080p screen is gorgeous in person. The speakers sound pretty good for a laptop. The keyboard is adequate. It is plenty speedy for normal use with the SSD hard drive and an i7 processor. There is a fan, but it isn't real loud, and the computer doesn't seem to get particularly hot even playing 1080p video.
Build quality is fair. The laptop doesn't feel that solid in person. The touchpad actually popped out of the laptop and had to be pushed back in. If you push hard on the keyboard the chassis flexes a bit. Out of the box, the touchpad is almost unusable. Tweaking the settings gets it to the point that you can use it and it is ok. But you are not going to love it.
The stand mode is ok - I think its main benefit is that it turns the speakers on the bottom upside down so they face up."
