Awesome Notebook, Mediocre Wi-Fi
6 August 2013
Summary: The internal wifi performance is acceptable in many situations. However, the wifi performance plummets when there are obstructions blocking the signal. The wifi on other laptops performed much better in the same challenging scenarios. I was willing to accept this flaw because the rest of the computer was perfect for me. I wanted the portability of an iPad with all the capabilities of a laptop.
Summary: Overall impressions: Eh, it's decent. Thickness, battery, screen, heat, all leave areas for improvement (they're alright, 7-8/10). Speakers are surprisingly loud & nice, as is the SSD. Keyboard, ports, build quality are all adequate. Must use two hands to open the lid. The wifi was downright embarrassing however. Initially the laptop was seeing ~0.67-1.0Mbps download and ~0.50Mbps upload (speedtest).
Summary: i am using it to write this review, there is noticeable scratch on right side of the lid, since it was a used so i let it go. over all the product working fine, but the hard drive is too little, bringing extra hard drive is a hassle.
Summary: The stats listed for this item are not false. This is one of the few 11.6 inch laptops that was manufactured with a 128 GB SSD drive, and 4GB of ram. I thought it was a typo, and was pleasantly surprised to see that it was exactly as was listed. The only disappointment, is that this came with the faulty wifi card that's usually associated with the Series 9. I purchased an Intel Centrino combination bluetooth and wifi card for this and replaced it right away.
Summary: I've had this for about 5 days now. I traded in the Series 3 11.6 (Princeton) for this one. Build: I can attest to the machine's toughness. While I have yet to drop it...I haven't exactly been delicate with it either. I was able to pry off the bottom to have a look inside. No problem.
