Notes

Bad battery status report, it seems a firmware issue. It causes reporting low charging values even if the battery is perfectly ok. It seems a defect independent on the o.s.

Summary

Very nice laptop at a very reasonable price. All hardware works at the best. Its only true problem is the battery status that is reported randomly as low charged.
