Fast
Sleek
Good Battery Life
Delicate
You just have to remember that this is a laptop before its a tablet, but the fault mostly lies in Wi 8 and the lack of decent Wi 8 apps, hopefully these issues will be fixed soon
Heavy, bulky, and large for a tablet (not laptop
Sound buttons don't change based on orientation
Bottom line, it still seems to be in development stage: rushed out too early
