Cons

Glossy bezel and screen pick up fingerprints too easily.

1 agrees

Stand offers limited pivot movement, restricting viewing somewhat from different angles.

1 agrees

Gaming preset is set a bit too bright, resulting in washed-out colours.

1 agrees

Not worth the premium price--while the added features are nice, they aren't necessary as your computer can handle slideshows and USB devices on its own.
