    Very identical to a macbook air but with windows 7! I’m an IT professional and VERY picky when it comes to my laptop. I read the reviews on this and was mixed between the good and bad on here, so I decided to visit a Microsoft Store and check it out on my own. I immediately was amazed how thin and light this was just like a MacBook Air (which I used and had before). I compared this to the Samsung series 9 laptop and although yes I wish it had a non-glossy screen it still beats it in price tag and performance.Pros:-Laptop does not show any traces of fingerprints (which annoyed me with other laptops)-Screen is very crisp and clear. Yes, its glossy but its a “comfortable glossy” like the macbook air-Keys are very responsive and comfortable. You do have to press a bit more but I easily got used to it.-The touchpad is the best I’ve ever used on any Windows laptop. Very smooth and responsive like a macbook.-Great performance as it has the i5 processor-Super fast bootup and screen on/off…

    Excelent!! I had this ultrabook for a week now and I can say it’s amazing so far. It’s thin, light, fast and comfortable. It looks good, it’s quiet and cool (I mean temperature). Before I bought this I read all the reviews available online. I completely understand the reviewers have to criticize something but for me this computer works perfectly well. For example, many people say that the keys are too short. In my opinion the keys are comfy. The screen is not the best, but it’s very good. This is not a gamer computer; it’s for the ones that need to carry it from one place to the other. Taking into account its size and weight, I couldn’t expect more from this machine. I come from a ThinkPad that is a heavy duty. I can see this computer is not as strong as the ThinkPad, but it’s on a different league if you take into account the price you pay for one of the smallest computers available.The Core i5 it’s powerful enough for the tasks I perform (Web, Excel, Word, some Photoshop). The SSD for…

    Defective Hardware — Be Wary! I bought the laptop for $799 on around Jan 2012. After it arrived, it worked OKAY. The track pad was not nearly as responsive as in a larger laptop, or in a MacBook Air, but no big deal. I can adjust to that, and I did. But there were significantly worse problems.First problem – Defective Wireless Card. (See also, e.g., the 2-star review by “The Inveterate Scofflaw ‘J'”). On random occasions, perhaps once every one to three hours of use time, the wireless adapter just goes out. *POOF* No, it is not that I went out of network range, etc. Rather, the computer acts as if I had manually disabled the wireless, and there is nothing that can be done to bring it back. Rebooting will work, and I realized later that putting the computer to sleep, which takes much less time, will also cure the nuisance. So I have had to do that, usually once every several hours, randomly, whenever the wireless card craps out on me. This was not a big deal, as it usually takes no more…
