So far, it has been running great. I looked at all the brands that came close to what I was looking for. I purchased this model as it was the most economical for the features I felt I needed. I have found the capabilities have exceeded my needs. The display is fantastic. I had to decrease the display configuration for the software I was using. The color reproduction is excellent. I like the physical size, I'm getting great battery life. I wish I would have purchased more RAM memory. I purchased the 16 GB model, I should have gotten the 32GB. I like the M2 memory. It responds very quickly (I was interested in the M2 as I have recently change my desktop over to M2 and saw a big improvement over the SSD that was in it . Over all, a clear 5.
