Summary: This computer is GREAT, now that all of the bugs are worked out… The wireless card in this laptop is very unstable, causing wifi to disconnect regularly, and is an extreme nuisance. The Intel 7260 has KNOWN issues, and more research can be done on the Intel forums regarding the fixes for the issue. Personally, my fix was to uninstall the Intel 7260 and replace it with an Intel 6205, although the 6205 doesn’t have Bluetooth.
Summary: I am very impressed with this! Performance is great tested a few games and it took it like a champ. Because the screen is much smaller than a desktop screen, the 1080p panel on this looks amazing! And when i purchased this i didn't really care about the dolby on this until actually started listening to stuff and the sound on this is monstrous. The sound is comparable to my bose soundlink mini. Check this link if your curious for gaming capabilities of this machine. [...
Summary: Mouse pad is really weak on this laptop. Hard to use click interface on the mouse makes you want to attach an external. They added a touch screen and let the mouse suffer. I bough this laptop as a supplemental to my desktop. I only wanted it to be able to play windows games here and there. It has performed that duty well. You won't be able to play a game while on battery for very long. When the Nvidia card kicks in the battery life drops fast.
I LOVE IT. I shopped extensively. This is the DEAL

Summary: The best IPS screen, super clear. AMAZING sound, better than any PC I've heard. Blazing fast with the on-board SSD cache (which is all but invisible to you.) Go read the positive reviews - there are many, and get yours soon. Yes it's true, you will accidentally hit the power switch which is on the side, but you'll learn not to. I wish it had two 3.0 USB ports where the two 2.0 ports are, but I'm OK with just one 3.0 port on the back.
Summary: Still haven't quite gotten used to the off-center keyboard (it is shifted to the left to make room for the numeric keypad I imagine) and I'm still trying to learn to like Windows 8, but I do like the computer itself. The battery life is awesome.
Summary: When I opened the box up, I thought this computer had a nice look to it. After awhile using it though, I have to say that I hate the trackpad. It's way too sensitive and overreacts to every touch. It's easily the worst I've ever used. I'd rather go back to the nub that my Thinkpad had 14 years ago. I don't think this computer is worth the price. Then again, I don't use the touchscreen. If you use the touchscreen, you might like this ultra book a lot more than I do.
Summary: It seems slow compared to the HP that I replaced it with. The touch pad is so sensitive that it is difficult to type unless you turn the pad off. The screen is like a mirror. If I have a white shirt on it is difficult to see what is on the screen, in my vehicle it is nearly impossible to see what is on the screen.
Summary: I've owned this computer for around a month now, it replaced a very broken 2010 Vaio Z, and although I have a few qualms, overall I am thrilled with the purchase and would absolutely recommend this computer to anyone considering it. The Good: The display is just fantastic, 14" 1080p IPS display, it completely blows any other similarly priced computer's out of the water, and was my primary impetus for choosing this computer over the other ones I was considering.
