We have no problems and it's very fast
Bad points:
My main concern so far is that it wouldn't be totally staraightforward to get the back off if we ever want to add more RAM or even replace the battery. It's sealed up, and you have to remove the trim etc to do this. I'm sure this would be possible, but it's more hassel than just unscrewing a cover to shove the upgrade in.
Ideally, I would have bought a machine with full 1080 pixels, but this upgrade would have cost a lot more, and the standard monitor is fine for normal use, and there's HDMI output to plug in a monitor.
The drive is not Blue Ray, but this doesn't matter to us, and again you could plug in an external drive.
If you want sheer maximum performance you can buy a higher spec machine at comparable price. This laptop seemed nicer though and we opted for a balance.
