    On forums you generally will hear complaints most the time. I would expect that in the real world the problems aren't nearly as bad. It does come with a warranty so you can get any problems fixed if anything comes up.

    mine is fantastic.

    no dents, no dead pixels, no backlight bleed, it goes to sleep and stays a sleep. the screen is bright, it is fast!!

    being super picky, sometimes the black plastic on the hinge creeks, a TINY bit.

    and when the cpu gets hot, the fans do not move, like ever above 2001. but i have smc fan control.

    but you will not regret buying it, i was worried about it hearing all the complaints around here, so inspected it before i even turned it on, then have tested everything else out.

    i will have had it one month this thursday and its all good on my end!
