Looks good, it is functional, feels good, and works fine. The sound feature is better than I have seen on any other laptop. The touch screen seems to work fine but I just did not have time to explore
I have owned this laptop for almost two years now and i still love it
The touch screen works great, it's light, it's sleek, and has a big screen
Fast, quiet, Windows 8, touchscreen
Light, powerful for its price. Has touch screen. Good for those who do a lot of work on laptops, and travel
Have to connect to my internet almost every time i turn it on
Barely ever the screen forgets it's touch screen and i have to close it and open it up again
Maybe this is a con but i don't mind it lacking a cd-rom
Touchpad is oriented left of center
Issues staying connected to wifi. Windows 8.1 cannot be loaded without several steps being taken. Not recommended for gamers or those who are looking for more power from their machine
