Summary: speakers suck though...sounds like a phone speaker. 32Gb ssd is only enough for chach and not the whole system. beeds to be reconfigured. i will upgrade to 64gb but a great machine for its price: lidden keyboard, light whight, and fast.
Summary: I hate the windows 8 on it. My husband said "you are a smart girl" order it, ignore the reviews you will figure it out. Well, i have figured it out, but it did take some work and frustration. Now he turns on the computer every evening and gripes about how hard it is to use because of windows 8. The computer itself is sweet. Nice keyboard, nice screen and quality.... It was a bit of a pain to just get it running. It was not plug and run.
Summary: Great ultrabook for the price. I not get a chance to do too much comparison before I bought this. This is extremely fast and reliable. However can't say the same thing about Windows 8... Pretty annoying almost "android" wannabe features. The keyboard on this laptop requires a bit getting used as it is pretty slim but you'll get used to it within a few days use. The sound on this is not great but that is not surprising on an ultrabook.
Summary: What I had in mind for a laptop was something lightweight but with a full-sized keyboard, with a fair amount of storage space and a good battery life (as my old laptop no longer lasted through a class period of note-taking). I didn't particularly care that it be fast, as the 6-year-old, lower-end laptop it was replacing was performing just fine for my needs. Even so, I think I can tell that this one runs faster (although it's also configured differently).
Summary: Overall I'm very satisfied with my purchase. This computer is very thin and light, makes it easy to take anywhere. Performance is very good. It boots and shuts down very quickly. Screen quality is about what you'd expect at this price point. Colors are good. Viewing angles aren't too bad considering. The keyboard definitely takes some getting used to. One thing this model seems to sacrifice in keeping it so thin is key travel.
