The computer, as you would expects with its compromises, has some demerits; one of which is the lack of an optic drive in its make up. The device can also not incorporate a large viewing angle and there are flaws in its design that, even if not critical, can affect performance. Its keyboard is somehow tracted into the deck and this affects the hitting on the keys. It also makes resting the wrist while typing a bit of a problem. You will also be required to use more strokes when navigating the cursor. The device provides less impressive gaming frame rates that are way below per. The device will set you back about 700 US dollars, which when mirrored with the WorldBench 6 score of 76, apears reasonable.
