Met my hopes/expectations and then some
This is the first laptop I've owned and I'm really glad went with Eluktronics despite being rather unfamiliar with the company. After using it consistently for around 4 months, I'm having trouble coming up with bad things to say about it. As far as performance goes, I have yet to experience any problems. I'm rocking a fairly middle-of-the-road build and I haven't had trouble running any games smoothly. Obviously it may run faster or slower depending on what hardware you decide to put in it. If portability is a priority, don't get a laptop with a 17.3 inch screen. I like the bigger screen and it fits in my backpack still (barely), so I don't really have any complaints there. The case looks really slick without screaming "I have money and I want to show it" like certain other brands do (cough cough). As others have said, the case does show fingerprints and whatnot, but I would never judge a computer poorly based on that. Just something to keep in mind. Out of the box, setup is easy and the computer comes packed with only the necessities which is really nice. I'd recommend this laptop and Eluktronics as a brand to anybody I know. Great experience.
