Summary: I have so far enjoyed this laptop. Easy to set up, great looking and easy to use. I too have had to make an adjustment to windows 8, but it comes with a free upgrade to 8.1 which makes it tolerable. I have not had the problems with the keyboard and touchpad that others have. Actually, I rather like the keyboard, its very smooth and comfortable. Each laptop takes a little adjusting too with their touchpad and this one is no different.
Summary: This is a sleek slim form factor laptop for the light to moderate user. Not ideal for any kind of significant multi tasking. Needed to copy office to a flash drive then install on this (as it came without it and there isn't a CD drive) Overall a great buy for student/teacher/new computer user/FB user/etc..
Very solid ultrabook. Nice looking, sturdy, good touchscreen, easy to upgrade RAM. Screen is a little dim. GREAT VALUE!!!!

Summary: I got this ultrabook and because my old laptop was starting to struggle with videos on YouTube. I wanted a touchscreen to play with, a thin computer, good battery life, easy to upgrade RAM, an illuminated keyboard, and a fast processor. In this ultrabook, I got all of those things. Windows 8 is better than I expected...once you run all eighty-something of the updates required before you update to Windows 8.1.
Summary: I like it, but I need to get use to it. The touch screen seems sensative, and sometimes I can't figure out how to get to where I want to be. I contribute a lot of this as my being used to a dfferent style of computer, with a standard desk top. This has a lot of features I'm not use to. Once I get a use to it, I can say for sure if it's a good buy or not. For now it is.
Summary: Laptop is great No heating after hours of usage - biggest plus for me.. this feature is better than mac Great touchpad Windows 8 is pretty good - negative reviews may be because folks are just not ready to accept a radical transformation.. p.s: my last 3 years have been with mac, windows 8 is pretty good "so far". Sleek. A little high priced..
