I don't mind the touchpad for regular use, I disagree with the review and find its a perfectly normal touchpad, and better than most.
One other unique thing to point out: the default configuration for the hard drives can be changed dramatically. the M2 SSD can be turned into a second regular hard drive, although the M2 form factor struggles with capacity, I managed to find a 128 GB M2 SSD and used it to install and run Linux Mint on a second drive. It boots just fine from both. Considering I bought the laptop refurbished for 900 bucks, its a good upgrade. I now have a gaming machine that will smoke most MSI rigs sold at 1200 for a hair over 1 grand. Best purchase ever.
