I had a few minor issues.
There was a loose screw rolling around the inside of the laptop within a week of receiving.
The number 1 key worked sporadically.
Other than these slight issues my 9300 has run like a champ.

I really have no...
iBuyPower was remarkably easy to deal with. I just returned it for a refund so I am not sure if they found anything wrong with it or not.
I would recommend rjtech.com or the 2 listed above by AzN if you are looking to purchase this particular machine.

Ya I did that and just as my luck would have it, My backup drive was the one to crash
You would definately save space though
The 78.11 driver has been out for a few weeks. Looks like Dell just finally chose to utilize them as a release.
From what I have read the temperature bug is back with this set.
Dell countered this by lowering performance of the driver.
Only what I have read over at laptopvideo2go, I chose to bypass this set and stick with what I currently run so I have no actual results.
I am giving up on the Uniwill. Well to be honest I just dont want to play games with iBuyPower. Given their track record I would easily be without a computer for at least a month trying to get their depot service to fix it. In the end I decided to just go back to the i9300 from Dell.
After reading other reviews I would recommend this machine. My experience seems to be affected by a bad cooling system on my particular machine. Other than that it really did run pretty...

Anyway I'm starting to really enjoy this notebook, having taken it on a trip with me. Battery life is more than I need (I can confirm 4 hours with Intel graphics) and performance is really good. It's sturdy and silent, and not too hot.
I actually bought this notebook with 3 other people and they too enjoy theirs....

He is in Europe. Seems they have different screen options over there.
Since I shipped my laptop back today I put the final editting into my review. I also adjusted the score a little bit to be more fair. I think the cooling was not working properly on my machine.
Should you guys have any more questions I would be more than happy to attempt to answer them but you should probably ask Zozo as he is keeping his laptop and can answer better than I could at this point.
