I purchased one on Friday but it has sat unopened while I research further. Anyone who bought this have any thoughts on the deal? I liked the smaller form factor and lighter weight but not sure about the build quality.
I happened upon this laptop while returning a Tablet at BB. I've been lightly using it for the past few days. I still can't figure out how to get a DVD to play. It continues to prompt me to upgrade the video software/bloatware to a paid version!

While the pricepoint is good, I'm not sure what kind of value it is if I have to do a bunch of stuff to get this thing functional. It should be functional right out of the box.

It does get a little warm, but not super warm. Of course, it is winter and average temps are in the 20's. I may have a different impression in the summer months.

Spaced out keys take some getting use to as does Windows 8. I'm coming from XP Pro and I'm not sure I'm a fan of the new platform.
