Battery life short.

Summary: Battery lasts only a few minutes after a full charge. Not a fan of Windows 8, but the touchscreen is pretty responsive. Process is not as fast as I had hoped. Picture is good. Versatile laptop, and would be fine if only I could unplug it from the wall and take it with me.
Summary: I bought this laptop for my MBA in Singapore and I am hating it since the very beginning. It is extremely slow, even while writing in word, the letters take a while to appear on the screen. The "Start Menu" icon does not work and the connectivity to internet doesn't work properly. Some times the computer shows limited connectivity to internet and I have full connectivity on my iPhone and ipad.
Summary: Purchaed this as a Christmas gift and he absolutely loves it. He said the screen display colors and sound quality is very impressive and that it's very fast and light weight. He had asked for a Surface Pro but was happy he received this instead.
Summary: Works great for frequent travelers. Wifi was a REAL problem. Went to several blogs and found out the wireless card is a pierce of junk. There were all kinds of fixes listed but I found a real easy one: Go to device manage and disable the card and go buy a real good wireless plug in adapter like the LiksysDual Band. Now works great and lightening fast although I had to spend another $60.
Summary: I tried 8 computers before settling for this one. I love it and it is perfect for my needs. I wanted something to replace my heavy Acer and something to eventually replace my iPad and this seems to do the trick. I used a MS Surfae Pro 3 just before but it did not have anough memory for my budget, so I returned it. I love this machine and the 4 positions that I can use it in.
Summary: I loved the overall form factor. It's a remarkably small footprint and fit into the most convenient places (e.g. side pouches, backpacks, leather portfolio's, etc.). The screen was bright and crisp, the touch element very responsive and the keyboard comfortable.
Pros: Lite weight, innovative design, crisp display.
Cons: Sketchy touch pad, odd performance issues and the downward facing keyboard when in tablet mode is awkward.
