The screen is a HUGE plus. And I gutted the copy of Windows, I have 3 laying around and its not a big deal for me, which drops the price a bit.

Any negatives?

And is it worth the i5 upgrade?
 
The only think I can't find is an independent review saying the laptops are decent.

You probably want to visit the CyperPower forums and see what owners of the laptops - this model and previous models - are saying about them.

Maybe some VERY light gaming, but moreso looking for battery life and so forth for school, I'm trying to avoid making this a gaming laptop... I get too tempted.

So, again, final questions that I have repeated but other questions have been answered first.

What possible PROBLEMS do you see with this setup?

And are there any competitors that can come close to this?
