Perfect for hobbyist photographers!
Not sure why someone gave this laptop a 1-star rating earlier, but I am perfectly content with mine. The 250 gigs SSD is perfect for booting up the OS. The 1TB HDD is ample storage space for most people though I usually use a portable one in addition to this. At the time of purchase, I wavered back and forth between a 32gb and 16gb graphics card, but finally settled on the 16gb that came with this product. As it turned out, per Adobe, 16 gb is more than enough for Lightroom and Photoshop. 32 gb is overkill and you end up paying more for something you don't need, unless the laptop serves a dual-purpose for gaming a well. I primarily use mine for photo-editing and the reason for my purchase. On a different note, indeed battery life is pretty short during heavy application usage and it's far from lightweight. It weighs slightly more than my 17.6" laptop, but then again, it's part of the trade-offs for the other stuff they had to cram into the frame. Sound is awesome...JBL. FYI: I have owned mine for about a month now and do not foresee any problems.Read full review
