Pros: First impression was great. The style and build quality are much better than I expected. The unit is light and slim with a bright screen and nice sound levels. The touch pad is large with multi-touch gesturing and the keyboard is almost full size. The performance hasn't been noticeably slow in any regard yet and actually loads web pages quite fast.

Cons: The battery isn't easily accessible and the RAM seems to be integrated with the mobo. The geek in me is angered by this but I think it actually works for this device. Windows 8 really needs a touch screen to be even close to bearable. Touchpad needs a little too much pressure to register a tap for clicking (that can probably be adjusted but the default setting isn't sensitive enough for my taste.) The keyboard does seem a little chintzy at first but it grows on you (now if I could only find the Num Lock key.) The power adapter is a apple knock-off type that needs a lot of space since the brick is not separate from the actual plug.

Overall Review: Cant go wrong for the price. I purchase many entry level laptops for customers and this one seems to be the next go to device for a short while at least. I really only have small gripes about it, other than that terrible Windows 8 OS. I mean it really is infuriating at times. Keep your stress level under check by installing Win7!
