Summary: Before I start though, kudos to the Eluktronics for amazing customer service. I ordered the laptop a week before it came out and chose to pay (a lot) extra for one day shipping to be sure I got it before leaving on a business trip. To my surprise it showed up a day after my order. Thankfully I was home as it arrived signature required. Soooo, despite the fact that it isn't officially released until next week I've already had a couple days to play with it.
Summary: Very good quality laptop, a little heavy but have great performance. The only negative spot is the Windows 8.1 that is more complicated and unusual operating system of the previous ones. Microsoft instead of make it easier ........
Summary: Buy it. It works well. GT740m is weak but i knew that. Windows 8.1 gets 3 or 4 stars out of 5 however. I need to control oscilloscopes and power supplies and other lab equipment for the research I'm doing, and this laptop has a problem communicating with the instruments. I blame it on Windows 8.1. Until they do something about this, and if you need a work/education laptop, get something with windows 8.0 or windows 7.
Summary: It's a nice computer. I gave it four stars instead of five as I really dislike Windows 8. It does have Windows 8.1 though - so it has a Windows7 icon you can go on from the main screen. I'm still learning how to use it. I miss the back arrow to get out of a screen. It's frustrating. The company I bought from is a good company. Delivery was fast and the company was very professional. I like the blu-ray cd/dvd drawer. The computer runs fast and the keyboard is nice.
Definitely an upgrade in speed, but the touch screen has a ways to catch up with true tablets

Summary: For my needs, this computer definitely is an upgrade from what I had before. But if you are looking for a true speed upgrade for a hard drive, although the hybrid is more stable, the SSD is a much better buy.
Summary: I really like this laptop, you can use all the potential when you use it to edit videos. I like the USB 3.0 ports and the Blu-Ray burner. I use the touch screen and is great! Something that I disagree from this laptop is that if you would like to use the F1 to F12 keys you must press Fn key, that's crazy!
