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.
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.
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.
Summary: This computer was purchased to be smaller than my 15.6" so I can work while on flights, but not be small enough to require an external monitor. I have used an android tablet in the past and couldn't get enough compatibility to get my work projects done. This computer does everything that I wanted.
