This is my first Ultrabook-esque laptop and it exceeds my expectations. I wasn't quite sure how it would perform since I'm using it for my web design business, but I had Photoshop, Outlook, and a few browser tabs open and it never got sluggish. Handled Photoshop as well as my desktop, even while populating my inbox in Outlook.
The computer also runs very cool, even when charging. I would notice my Macbook Pro would get extremely warm while it was charging, but this stays cool on your hands and lap. The fan is also super quiet. I've never heard the fan while using or the HD for that fact. The touch screen seems accurate as well (first time using one so I don't have a control to compare). Everything about this computer is sleek!
The touchpad may be a half inch too far to the left of the keyboard. I notice my left hand will often rest against it while I'm trying to use my right hand to scroll. Just sort of annoying but I'm getting used to it.
