Fantastic laptop in all respects except for trackpad. This is the one to buy

Summary: We bought two of these for my wife's work and my daughter who is going to college. I have waited for six weeks of heavy use and travel by both so I know my review is accurate. These are FANTASTIC laptops. The internet is blazing fast, the size and weight are miniscule, they look and operate great. Pros: >Super fast AC internet is also backward compatible with N if you have an old router >Brilliant screen is 11.5" wide and 6.5" high.
Summary: Over all, I am very pleased with this computer. It has taken a journey and wasted money to get here, but this Acer Ultrabook is mainly what I have wanted. Last year when my large windows 7 lap top had a screen problem I acquiesced to the chorus of Apple friends who preach that Macs are superior to PCs. I figured that if I had to learn windows 8, I may as well move to Apple.
Fast, light weight, perfect for travel, nice battery performance

Summary: This ultra-book boots in a few seconds. The battery lasts 5+ hours of heavy use. At about 2.5 pounds it is great for backpack travel. I recently returned from international travel. Daily I downloaded photos from the day. By the time I returned home photo editing was 90% complete. (1200 photos in an 8-day trip.
