4 out of 5 eggsFaster than expected

Pros: Thin and lightweight. Feels solid compared to some flimsy Acer netbooks of the past. Haswell based processor (not Bay Trail!). Upgrade-able hard drive and RAM. Gigabit NIC, fast WiFi.

Cons: Keyboard isn't the best but just takes some getting used to. Access to the motherboard, hard drive, and RAM is possible but it requires about 8-10 screws and the entire bottom panel to be removed. It's not impossible but harder than the traditional 2 screw panel. Be careful with panel after screws are removed, you have to gently pry around the edges.

Other Thoughts: This was purchased from another online retailer that had a much better price. It was purchased to replace an aging netbook that was terribly slow. This is light years faster than a traditional Atom based netbook. I was shocked at how snappy the Haswell based pentium processor is. I did a fresh install with a windows 8.1 disc I already had and this thing is super fast now. I also upgraded to a SSD. The RAM at 4GB is more than adequate for office work. Very pleased with this model. It's hard to find a haswell based 13" ultrabook that isn't touch screen at a price as low as I found it.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat value for a highly portable laptop, but there are caveats.

Pros: Lightweight and very portable, surprisingly comfortable keyboard, fully featured Windows 8.1 and price, price, price.

Cons: Plan to upgrade the hard drive with a Solid State Drive otherwise performance will be very slow. You need to be very tech savvy to bring this laptop up to speed.

Other Thoughts: I would only recommend this laptop to a very specific audience. You need to be tech savvy enough to perform the hard drive upgrade yourself, and also you need to understand networking to troubleshoot the WiFi adapter.

My biggest motivator with getting it was the price. I needed a lightweight and portable laptop that I could bring with me to meetings and that would fit nicely into my designer bag. This laptop set me back under $500. For me, this laptop is really a poor man's version of Lenovo's X1 Carbon ultrabook that is sold for around $1800.

So if you look at this laptop in the context of it's price and what I needed it for, it';s a great deal.

I had a very specific use for this laptop; I got it to run the Microsoft Office suite and besides that there was little else that I was interested in.

To make a laptop this portable at this price point Acer had to cut all sorts of corners. The biggest place where this is really felt it's the touchpad. It's practically unusable, and I haven't found Acer native software to configure it yet.

The other glaringly bad component is the WiFi adapter. I'm a seasoned IT professional, and this thing is among the worst adapters I've seen. After extensive troubleshooting, I still couldn't get it to connect to my home Netgear router, that is until I changed a setting on the Wireless Port Mode to operate at 145Mbps.

The hard drive had to be replaced with a SSD that I had laying around, so once that piece was in Windows 8.1 really started to fly.

This laptop has a laughable "Pentium" CPU, but you know's actually sized just right to support the workloads that I'm running on it.

Overall, this was a good deal compared to shelling out $1800 on the Lenovo, but if I wasn't a technology pro I would never buy it.
