Consumer review (newegg.com)

Adequate

 

Used about 3 to 4 hours daily. No issues to date. I'm satisfied.

Sleek and simple. Surprisingly good audio. Minor pre-installed fluffware easily uninstalled (some may consider this a Con I suppose)

Glossy touchscreen (glare of course if your back faces a sun lit window). No 5Ghz WiFi, but so far the 2.4Ghz hasn't sucked
