Outstanding laptop with incredible screen resolution

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.
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!
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: 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: i love this configuration. It is super fast on boot up and all I/O related functions because of the SSD drive. I have had several laptops over the years and this is the best by far. The only weakness is the mouse buttons on the track pad are a bit flaky but all the other wonderful benefits of speed out weight that one limitation. The folks who configured this are pros because it set up quickly with little bloatware or issues. I give it a 5 star ranking for sure.
Summary: I have had this for a week so far and it has performed exactly as expected. I paid extra to have a large SSD preinstalled and it was worth every penny. The laptop is very fast and the boot time is under 10 secs from a cold start. It seems like instant on from hibernation.
