Really a good bargain ultrabook if you're looking to get into the mid-level and don't want a touch screen (which I did not). Don't expect hi-res graphics though...

Large screen for an ultrabook, really excellent battery life considering the screen size, easy on the wallet
The max screen resolution is 1366 768. I wish I had paid better attention there, because it's noticeable how bad that is
