Pros: Very very quick. It boots up from off in about 10 seconds. I feel as if turning it on and off completely is faster than putting it to sleep and waking it back up.
Screen is big but not too big.
Touch screen is responsive and the physical screen is very smooth.
LED backlit keyboard is awesome.
All in all a very good laptop/tablet for a student.
Cons: Alright here we go:
1-The battery could have been bigger but honestly I get about 5 hours out of it.
2-Windows 8 has issues with google chrome. When I installed and used google chrome the touch screen became unresponsive and would work sporatically. I uninstalled and then it worked just fine. Unfortunately, I have started using IE :(
3-Kinda a small hard drive, but honestly if you are just using this as a school laptop or something else you really don't need a huge hard drive. For those of you thinking of purchasing this as your sole computer then you might want to think long and hard if 128GB is good for you.
4-Honestly the design is very cool. The only problem with it is when in laptop mode the screen pretty much does a 90 degree angle which when laying in bed makes it very difficult to use that way. Any other time though (for example on a desk it doesn't have much of an affect) I usually just use it in tablet mode so there are no big issues with that for me.
Other Thoughts: Unfortunately Google Chrome seems to cause issues with the touch screen. It could also be microsoft office 2013 but I have office installed and no chrome with no problems so far!
All in all, great laptop and really cool design! Wait for it to go on sale. I got it for a good deal $7XX with a 3 year warranty so if you are in no rush just keep an eye on it! Good luck!
Will update if any other problems arise!
