Pros: Everything you'd expect - size, weight, performance. [Of non-wifi components] Some of the trackpad gestures for Windows 8 features irked me, so I appreciated that you can turn them off.

Cons: The wifi connectivity suffers immensely - enough to completely ruin the entire experience. The wifi drops out and credentials must be re-entered or the adapter must be reset, and it happens VERY frequently. In streaming a 1-hour show I disconnected 11 times.

The whole design of these kinds of devices assumes a connection to the internet - I don't store things on the SSD that I don't need to, because it's got limited space. But if I'm taking notes in Google Docs and the connection drops, I'm not able to type in the document anymore.

This drawback, sadly, manages to outweigh everything beautiful about this computer that I've wanted to love so badly.

Other Thoughts: I'm the kind of guy who will put up with some minor drawbacks if it means getting something bigger that I really want - for example, I don't mind having an OS that is kind of annoying because this machine has a stunningly gorgeous form factor.

But the ONE issue that has the power to just pull the rug out completely is the wifi. This issue permeates just about everything I want to use this computer for. It's the "minus" that just flat out-weighs all the "pluses."

I would give 5 stars [eggs, whatever] if this cursed beautiful thing could just hold a signal. But it simply can't. It disconnected on me once already while typing this.

It's a real shame.
