Astonishingly powerful. Faster than most desktops.
But in a slim, light and elegant package.
Mix of 128GB SSD and 750GB HDD is absolutely perfect. Means the system runs rapidly (SSD) but still have huge amount of storage.
Minimal bloatware as well.
This machine is amazing value.
Very little. Bit too much movement in the keys, maybe.
Ideally would like a longer battery life - but given the systen spec, it is pretty good
