    Great laptop While it might not look like anything special out of the box, this is an incredibly versatile computer. There is an m.2 NGFF SATA slot inside, so one can install an additional SSD (up to 42mm in length, i I think 128gb is the max capacity available in this size) alongside the 500gb stock drive. This will allow you to have a blazing fast SSD for your OS and programs while using the stock SSHD for storage. The included 4GB of RAM is not soldered onto the board so you can remove it and upgrade to an 8GB stick.

    Overall very pleased! 3 week in review as of 6/11/14 I have to say that overall I am pleased with this ultrabook.
