One can spend twice as much elsewhere and not be satisfied. Check out this unit...

Very reliable manufacturer with a strong pedigree. Excellent battery time--fast enough, both in clockspeed and what have you. Feels substantial, keyboard easy, touchscreen versatile. Has Webcam, mic,
Excellent value
Sleek design, does what a computer should. Touch screen is fun, except when the kids are around
Little bit of bloatware, but after running freeware IoBit Uninstaller no probs still much storage and much to recommend
After about 35 days of ownership, the left mouse button sticks in the "clicked" position and the track pad operates erratically
