This was the best laptop i ever owned. My fiance bought it as a gift. It ran smoothly and i could do everything on it. From browsing the internet, playing games, downloading massive files, and writing papers. All with no trouble at all. Its very durable, well at least for me it was. It was in my book bag twice when the straps broke causing it to hit the ground each time. It took some major damage externally and internally. But, it still works. I still have it just in case of an emergency , but i had to pack it away since i have to prop up the screen just to use it

It's a OK laptop for people on a budget. Multiple applications can run but super slow. It will do the job of its not high tech job

I am a full time student, so I am on my laptop off and on all day. The SSD is VERY useful for someone who constantly turns their computer on and off. Boot times are only a few seconds long, and the computer doesn't lag at all once you unlock it. Apps are also pretty fast to load. (2-3 seconds) I was skeptical of the i3 processor, but it has worked flawlessly so far. But after finding out that it was a 3rd gen and a dual core, I felt more secure. I usually have at least four or so tabs open at once. Loading facebook, playing videos off youtube, having multiple tabs for homework, and running couple apps, while on the charger and with full brightness. I am happy to say that I have noticed no speed problems or lag, even with multiple youtube videos playing at once and a few other tabs open too. I havnt tried any photo or video editing or 3D games, but I probably will in the near future. But to be fair, this laptop isn't made for gamers anyway. Also, I havnt experienced any heating problems yet, other than just slightly warm. The trackpad is very easy to use, and It closely resembles that of one on a Mac Book. The multi touch is a big plus for me, for scrolling though web pages and such. But, this laptop truly shines with the touch screen. Windows 8 is basically made to be used with tablet, so I really diddnt want to upgrade unless I had a touch screen. But I will say, using Windows 8 on this touchscreen is an absolute blast! It's just plain fun to play with. Its basically like having a tablet with a full keyboard. The touch screen is by far my favorite feature, and I have had no problems with it yet. There aren't as many ports on this laptop as I would like, but that is an easy fix. It only has 2 USB ports, and I use a wireless mouse for one and the other is switched between my phone charger and a flash drive. But, a $6 adapter thingy will add ports instantly, so that's not a big deal. Also, the no CD drive is a bit of a con, but again, those can be found on Amazon for around $30. This laptop does have a VGA port, which I use for my dual monitor. The other ultrabooks don't have one, so that was a definite plus. My last con was that there isn't a back lit keyboard, but after talking to sales representatives at Staples, they all said that the back lit keyboard was just another thing to malfunction and I should stay away from them anyway. Out of the 4 they sold recently (6 months or less), all 4 came back with keyboard problems. I purchased this ultrabook through Staples, where it was on sale for $700 instead of the original $850. I am very happy with my purchase, and just wanted to post a review because I was having trouble finding some myself. So far, this laptop has been lighting fast and very fun to play with. I found one at a good price, jumped on it, and am happy I did so. Not to mention that my friends with the Macs can't stop playing with it

Major hit or miss depending on the year. All of the year models were generally pretty good, durable and reliable EXCEPT for the 2012 model. That design was super faulty due to the fan being at the folding point, causing the laptop to constantly overheat and eventually burn itself after 6 months. It was the crappiest one i ever had but other models my sister used to own generally lasted well for its worth

When I first got this laptop, I fell in love. It reminded me of a mac, with the ability to customize so much of the appearance, but it was a smooth performance. The only reason why I'm no longer using it is because one of my rambunctious children broke my screen.

One of the best laptops I've had the pleasure of using. My fiance has had it since high school and it was very easy for me to learn how to use, the keyboard is a nice size and even after it being 10 years old it still works like a charm.
