im not a computer person, but the ultrabook is very sexy and sleek straight from the box. its a bit disappointing with the limited memory- after opening its about 50 Gb available memory- i will have to use an external harddrive for all my photos, and i should have considered that before i purchased. Windows 8 is driving me bonkers, but thats with most of these ultrabooks. Looks great but I think if i would have held it in a shop i may have picked a different book.
i got the slower ssd version. would have been nice to get the adata ssd, performance would have been better.
mouse PAD (not buttons) is noisy when you touch it, because it floats and when you touch it, it hits the chassis making annoying noise.
I would never pay 1k for this laptop, simply because i could build a PC with better specs for that much. This laptop is so slim and I find it amazing that all of these specs can fit into this one laptop. The IPS screen is simply awesome. I did have a frozen pixel but its not a huge deal and i rarely notice it. the speed is pretty good too.
