This is an amazing computer...

Amazing Speed on start up and the keyboard is slim just the way that i like and the touch is amazing never seen anything like it before
Fast, responsive touch, decent battery life, and looks nice
I love the way the keyboard types and everything is very accurate, the touchscreen, the mouse, the apps. I really like using windows 8 but only with the touchscreen it's kind of a hassle without touch
Hardware is perfect, except the hard drive. The read and write speed is horribly slow. That is the only draw back. If you get this laptop get an SSD with it and it will be great. Hardware wise, it is
Dis-assembly was difficult, but expected with the style of device this is. Knocked an egg off for the cheap keyboard tabs. Two broke on both of these I had during reassembly
Windows 8 isn't the best operating system but they keep updating it and it is becoming more fluid
HD, Screen Resolution and Contrast. The biggest con of all is Windows 8.1
