Initial thoughts


Very quick, what I expected so far. I plan on using this to develop with so hopefully it can meet the challenge

Corners are pretty sharp, there are pieces of plastic in the upper corners that dig into the skin if the laptop is resting on your legs (they keep it off of the ground I assume for airflow)

Excellent Machine


I have had this machine for 2 months now and love it. The performance is awesome. Boot up is in seconds, no crashes so far, touch screen changes the whole interaction with the computer (not sure you need a mouse anymore). I can't see why anyone would...

Fast, excellent display, great battery life, looks great

Touch pad sensitivity
