The keyboard layout is a bit wonky. Although the keys are responsive and feel nice to press, the delete key and the arrow keys are not what I'd call intuitive. And the numlock does not boot to on (though there are workarounds if you are willing to funk with regedit--Google is your friend if you are so bold). Windows 10 is not wonderful, but the kinks are being worked out, and I've resolved to embrace the upgrade and abandon Windows 7 (I never opted in to Windows 8 or 8.1). The trackpad is nice and responsive at the stock settings, but I'm not used to the L/R buttons being integrated into the pad itself (no discrete buttons), so that leads me to resting my fingers on the trackpad, which registers as a multi-touch. So it is taking me a while to adapt to this habit. The multitouch is interesting, but it is not fully programmable as I'd like. You can set a 3-finger tap to summon Cortana (Microsoft's equivalent of Apple's Siri, or Google's "Okay Google," or Samsung's "Hi, Galaxy"). Four fingers swiped up or down can toggle between windows/active programs, which I've found is a slight time-saver. I'm still getting used to it, but I'm learning to like Windows 10.
So, assuming the replacement is fully functional, the rest of the machine is AWESOME and represents a terrific value. The laptop cold boots nearly instantly, around 10 seconds to log in. Wowza! Battery life seems to be about as advertised.The graphic processor will be another feature to boast about, but I haven't tried that yet. Still impressed with the SSD performance compared to a regular spinning hard drive.
