Let me start by saying that I use my computer to surf the internet, for classwork, to stream video, to watch DVDs and Blu-ray, to listen to music, and to occasionally play games. I configured my model to be super fast and to be able to handle the wealth of videos I watch. No problems so far, everything's been up to par and beyond. The only complaint I have about the model is that I mistook "viewing angle" to mean that the monitor could be tilted and am a little disappointed that you can't tilt the monitor. For the perfect viewing angle, I like my eyes right at level with the center of the screen, which means I am practically sitting on the floor.
