Quick thoughts – more later EDIT 12/1 – I have had a chance to put the PC through it’s paces with several full battery runs. That is, working on it (writing, web-surfing, email) a couple of times. The battery life with real world use is about 3 1/2 hours. Maybe a tad less. This is with setting the power plan to “power saver” and the screen at half brightness. Also I ran HWinfo and after 4 charges the battery wear is at 4.8% which is weird.Bottom line. This is a terrific slim laptop IF you can deal with the terrible battery life. Ultrabook specs call for 5+ hours of battery life so I don’t think it can be classified that way.–I received this ultrabook on Nov 28th and thought I’d give some quick thoughts then expand later. I’m a writer and I need a laptop with a good keyboard. I took a risk on this laptop but have been pleasantly surprised by the way the keys behave. They don’t have the same travel as your typical keyboard – it’s a bit shallow but I am a heavy typer and I…

Great value I’ve been using this laptop for 2 weeks now and I’ve been extremely pleased with my purchase. This is the best value for an “ultrabook-style” laptop. I was pretty close to buying a 13″ mac book air until I saw this computer. It has similar build, it’s just as thin, it has the same components but with a larger 15″ 1080 screen and it’s almost half the price. I was a little concerned when i purchased it because there were quite a few reviews of the older model complaining about the track pad and the keyboard. I guess they’ve changed the track pad because it’s one of the best I’ve used however the keyboard is still mediocre, not a deal breaker though.Pros:Basically a knock off mac book air that runs windowsprice!very fast. boot time is amazingcan do light gamingexcellent screenbattery lasts all day under normal web browsing/e-mail usethin and lightweightCons:keyboard is just okayOther thoughts:the…

Good except for keyboard Bought this for the wife for home and remote work.Overall the design is very good. Light weight is definite plus and it doesn’t get hot sitting on your lap. There is a small fan for cooling but it doesn’t run constantly.Display is bright and full 1080. This is a replacement unit though as the first one suffered a display failure in the first 30 days. Amazon sent out a new one with return shipping free in a day. 5 stars for Amazon service.Boots up in 15 seconds with the SSD. Performance is very good. Video doesn’t lag and HDMI output to flat panel works great. Wireless works very good anywhere in the house but then I put 7db gain antennas on my wifi router.Lack of SD reader is minor but I have an SD/USB adapter to remedy that.The biggest drawback is the keyboard. All the keys are flat hard plastic with very short keystrokes. I find myself having to retype for missed keystrokes and her nails are a problem for her. Definitely not a keyboard for…
