I got this laptop even after seeing the other 1-star review since every laptop gets 1-star reviews. Every manufacturer has a few miscues, and every kind of laptop has some problems once in a while. It happens.
I had literally the same problem as the other 1-star review, except I took the time, over a 3 day period, to try to resolve the issue. The memory problem was somebody at Cybertron leaving on a huge 360+GB file on the computer (which I think was like a testing version or something, but I'm not a computer guy), and there was no OS installed on the machine, which is obviously a problem if you've read the specs of what you're paying for here.
So after a three day, hours and hours long ongoing conversation with Cybertron support (which is actually a great support crew, so cheers to that), I was told that my machine just wouldn't work and I should return it, so that's what I'm doing, and I will be sticking to "known" laptop manufacturers in the future,...
On first power up it ran their imaging software. Already a bad sign - I ignored it and attempted to launch the start menu to do things such as updates. The start menu didn't work - a fundamental feature of the operating system and they somehow screwed it up. Do they not test systems before they ship?
From the description:
- All systems are expertly assembled by hand, integrated and run through a rigorous set of stress tests for quality assurance.
That is BS.
Looks like I'll be wiping their OS for a fresh install. It's probably a good idea anyways in recent light of malware that manufacturers sneak on their systems (read up on superfish). I'm keeping it for now and see how it performs after installing a fresh copy of Windows.
To make matters worse - it looks like they even left a copy of the image on the system - a ~450GB file in the root of C. As a result I only had 12GB free. Extremely sloppy!
I bought this computer and an MSI system with similar specs (the only difference was the MSI has two drive (1 TB HDD and 128 GB SSD) as opposed to single 500 GB SSD on this computer) to run the same demanding biostatistical software that takes hours (sometimes days) to run. This system consistently completes the identical tasks quicker than the MSI system. The only issue I have is it does not have an optical drive to load software from CDs or DVDs. I did not notice this until after purchase.
