    Great Laptop Bought this from another retailer with the i5 processor, which was more than enough speed. I hadn’t had any slowdowns even before I upgraded certain items. Windows 8 takes a bit to get used to but so far I like it. I’m getting more used to the app OS’s like Android so the mixture in Windows 8 is becoming more convenient.I still like the 15″ size over the smaller sizes so this was the way to go for me. I also find it convenient to have a keypad on the laptop since it cuts some inefficiency when doing a lot of accounting work. I also felt that if I were to get a new laptop with Win 8 I’d have to go touchscreen and that, I feel, has been a great advantage – makes surfing the web and other tasks much quicker than using a mouse.I’m used to an ASUS UL50VT so the screen was no drop off and thus I was still used to the 1366×768 resolution, some may find it lacking but for the price, you’ve gotta expect some shortcomings – I’m tired of seeing people posting how the screen is…

    So far so Perfect! Overall:Fast, responsive, lightweight, solid.Screen:720p is off-putting after being used to 1080p or better. I overlook it because I knew those were the specs when I bought it.The touchscreen aspect is solid, no lags, very responsive.HDD:Before I replaced the hard drive, I thought it was really fast. The use of the 24GB mSATA is key here. I don’t think the ultrabook would be any use without it.HDD upgrade to SSD:And I thought the hybrid aspect was fast, this baby is blazing. 5 seconds or less to get this baby running, 5 seconds or less to shut down. I loaded Win 8 without all the bloatware, it’s amazing. Very easy, the BIOS seems to have kept my Win8 license key, so the install of the OS was easy with a USB DVD drive.6GB RAM:Plenty of memory for what I need it for: browsers, word processing, pic/vid viewing, skype, eReader, etc. I might upgrade eventually, but so far so good. Windows OS handles…
