Useful as an everyday computer

Wennie, Amazon

  • Summary: I have had this for a little over a year, and it still works nicely and fast. Pros: - It runs Ubuntu nicely, though the disk is partitioned strangely (granted this was the first time I attempted changing operating systems) - It's so thin and light that other laptops feel like bricks - Load and install times are fast. I feel spoiled by it in that sense - Metal outside case looks sleek and is a nice texture.

A really nice computer.

Soren DK, Amazon

  • Summary: I got a bargain on this computer (not on Amazon though) but at first I was a bit worried with all the mediocre reviews it had recieved online. It turned out that I had nothing to worry about and again it proves that the internet experts are not always experts. What I really like about this computer is of course the speed as it is lightening fast and it also has a very nice build quality and overall it looks nice.

perfect lightweight ssd hd embedded ultrabook!

  • Summary: Perfect laptop for my needs. Arrived on time and works wonderfully well . Just one downside is the acer supplied bluetooth mouse which seems to have a mind of its own. Often I have to reset its drivers for it to work properly.

Very good in price/performance

  • Summary: The only reason I will not give it five stars is the way the ports are hidden. I am afraid an accident could come and the mechanism would be broken

cute product

  • Summary: What ejegi by its very light weight. I like the speed of the processor core i7 I recommend it for travelers. the hard drive is very small additional recommend purchasing an external drive to store photos, music and videos. Sounds a bit when opening the hidden USB ports should improve the gear to make it quieter.

Got it running Ubuntu but it involved some hassle

Riskable "riskable", Amazon

  • Summary: LINUX This laptop comes with the dual mSATA SSDs in a fake RAID 1 configuration. Meaning it isn't really a RAID--it just looks like one from Windows' perspective (in fact, all of Windows was stored on just the first SSD). This fake BIOS RAID garbage has plagued the PC industry for quite some time but I myself have never encountered a machine that comes pre-configured like that. This feature caused me some trouble getting Ubuntu loaded...

Very good!

canonizer, Amazon

  • Summary: Other than being a touch loud and "only" have 3-4 hours of battery life (at very power hungry settings), I love this laptop. I just wanted something light and reliable. An apple with these 'specs' would have been roughly $1800. Hope to remain this happy. Leaving off a star for for the noise and having to play with the sound features extensively to produce any reasonable volume.

The most portable and fast ultrabook ever.

Patrick K., Amazon
15 October 2012
  • Summary: This is possibly one of the fastest laptops I have ever used in my life. With its usage of Solid State Drive and an Intel Core i7 Processor, its turning on time and shutting down time is blazing fast. From sleep mode, it will return to where you left at within 1 second and from a shut down mode to on, it takes less than 10 seconds. It's a ready when you need it laptop. A perfect one for business and school/college work.
