CPU fan is loud, when it's on ... total 68gb free after 8.1 upgrade ... resolvable wi-fi issue ... very nice build for the money
3 weeks ago
Summary: edit: I ran into the "limited connection" (no internet) deal again, so I went back to the link (below) and did the first thing (which I skipped previously, for no apparent reason) ... we'll see if that's the end of it I immediately upgraded to 8.1 ... it went fine I also bought a 24in monitor to extend to ... that's also been working well I'm also using a Logitech K810 bluetooth keyboard and Logitech M525 mouse ...
Summary: Wanted a "state of the art" computer that I could still afford, and I found it! VERY fast, lots of style, a great keyboard (back lighting with an on off option would be nice, but still)the display is brilliant, "folded back" "tent style" great for watching movies, speakers surprisingly good, hey whats not to like??
Summary: This would get at least 4.5 stars from me if they can fix wireless issue. I have got Intel Wireless N-7260 adapter.
Pros: Fast,, great build,, responsive touchscreen,, lightweight,, long battery life
Cons: The wireless keeps disconnecting after 30 min use. Tried all kinds of drivers but no luck., Don't like the way touchpad is built. The right and left mouse clicks also function as touch surface and that drives me crazy. I use wireless mouse instead.
Summary: I've had this laptop about a month (after finding a great deal at Staples) and I am completely satisfied with it so far (especially being such a big upgrade over my 8 year old laptop). The touch screen is very responsive and clear. Videos look great and it is very fast with internet activity over my wireless network.
Pros: Fast performance, Touch screen is responsive and easy to use, Good battery life, Clear and vibrant screen
Cons: Took some research and effort to learn how to disable the screen's auto brightness adjusting., Screen doesn't fold completely back.
Summary: A good ultrabook with good spec in this price range, thought is an older version of this model series but it already fits my need when I considered a balance between price and spec. The speed is not as high as I have expected for an i5 device in some occasions but generally it has done its work. The resolution is relatively low but does not bother me much.
