To soon to tell about performance, but the pc is sleek and built solid. Really like the brushed aluminum and color. Lots of features to use and explore. Looks like it will live up to my expectations.
I really love this laptop! It's fast enough for all my editing programs and the screen is HUGE.My only drawback is that windows 8 is kinda annoying and since it is a widescreen the browser looks a bit funny
