Summary: It's a nice computer but there are some key annoying things about it: 1. The touchpad has a chromed edge with a 45degree chamfer which, if the sun is shining, will cast a very annoying glare straight into your eyes.
Summary: Perfectly competent home use computer if budget is any concern. The screen resolution is ok, not standard HD or anything like that. The touchscreen is responsive, and I would say that is a must for using the tablet-esque Windows 8.1 layout.
Summary: Mixed on this one. It's very annoying that the mouse pad is so easy to hit when you are typing. It is slightly offset from the center of the keyboard causing it to be easy to tap with your thumb when you are typing.
