Quick and light.

 

Very light for the screen resolution. Power brick is fairly light, touchpad is responsive, not too much bloatware. Auto-backlight on the keyboard due to lighting conditions is nice, but doesn't always work when you expect it to. Overall, feels very...

The fan used to be incredibly loud, but the latest BIOS updated fixed it - make sure you download it ; Runs fairly hot. The fan is at the very back, so the screen blocks it a little bit
