Summary: The highlight of this laptop is very convenient to take it with you elsewhere. Windows start speed is really fast no more than 20 seconds. Thus this is the best choice for students and people who need to start and shut down computer frequently. Moreover, the touch screen is very agile and accurate. However, this computer is not designed for games. At least, I haven't found any problems.
Summary: I am disappointed with the performance of the laptop, it is slow and hangs up frequently when using a chrome browser. The touchscreen is responsive, although adapting to windows 8 is difficult at times. The battery life is as advertised ~3-4hrs. Overall the design aesthetics are great, it is light and compact. I really only use it for browsing the web, and I am disappointed that it cannot even handle web browsing.
