update (4/1/2015) Attached the mouse pics. The volume of the speaker is very nice. I really liked the trackpad
some very minor things which i didnt like:
There is no dedicated End button (had to use shift+ num 1 key in the num pad)
Finger prints :-( right from the day i opened the laptop, finger print was clearly visible.
The keyboard light doesnt come up unless we login. I have seen some posts regarding this in the internet.
I would have preferred a caps lock light on the key itself rather than below the trackpad
But i am not concerned about these, as these are just minor things.
i liked the feature of switching of the laptop screen off (fn+ f7) without turning off the laptop, helps just in case you need to step aside for few minutes.
The OS is installed on the SSD and therefore the boot time is very fast.
On full charge of the battery i am getting around 5 hours runtime.
* SSD version has all the OS on SSD and starts up fast. First ever restart took 45 seconds (after I installed the 3 things I didn't want including McAfee, and WebStorage)
* Hard disk (1TB) pre-separated into two partitions
* Not a touchscreen, but most touchscreens I've seen don't have the same quality.
* Perfect viewing from any angle, even from the extreme sides
* Keyboard includes small bump on "W" so you don't lose finger placement during online WASD games
* Comes with a few pre-installed apps that I removed, including TripAdvisor, Netflix, Games - you might keep Netflix, but I use Amazon Prime instead. Interestingly also come with LINE - most popular messenger in Japan - which is weird, because I've almost never seen it used in America
* Price to value is incredible, I haven't found a better deal on Amazon yet. Get the SSD version.
* Incredibly quiet and cool during web browsing and simple stuff
