Summary: I purchased this laptop for work as a diagnostic tool. Almost immediately after buying it I was able to upgrade to Windows 8.1 at no cost, which is a huge improvement over 8. 8.1 has taken some getting used to over XP, but the touchscreen functionality is superb and works well within 8.1. I am so spoiled by the touchscreen that I find myself putting fingerprints on all my devices! The computer has been acceptably fast and very stable and dependable.
Summary: I normally do not write reviews, but wanted to voice my concerns. This item was puchased from Amazon Warehouse deals as "refurbished" stating that only defects were some visual blemishes. I can live with visual blemishes, but upon arrival I opened the box (which appeared in decent condition) and began initial set up. After playing around with it a bit, I noticed the tab key didn't work, no biggie.

Summary: I really love this laptop. I fit my needs - the feel of a laptop with the ease of use of a tablet. The touch screen is very responsive and I haven't had any trouble at all. The design is sleek. It's slightly heavier than other laptops this size but it's quite sturdy which is better for me. The speakers are also generally louder than other laptops I've tried.
Summary: Really nice laptop. Compact, touch screen is nice, and the sound is great. The only complaint has to do with windows 8 - the format is cool, but clunky and the apps aren't worth their handiness. Have had several issues getting used to the system.
Summary: Awesome laptop for a great price.. I ordered this along with a 120gb samsung SSD (7mm as it must be a low profile SSD) and an intel wifi/bluetooth card, knowing I'd want those two upgrades.. swapping out the stock hard drive and wifi card was a piece of cake - only took 10 minutes. To all those who say this laptop is too slow - upgrade to an SSD.. it makes a world of difference, and is completely silent (compared to a traditional HDD which you can hear).
