John, Birmingham General home user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
All round, this is an excellent ultrabook. The price is very affordable for what you get. The laptop boots to the log-on screen in about 5 seconds and all tasks on the computer are carried out very swiftly. The laptop, so far, also seems to be able to cope very well with high performance tasks such as video editing. The touch screen is very responsive and the display size, at just 13.3 inches, makes this laptop highly portable and very light to carry around. The design of the laptop is also very chic and smart and a pleasure to work on. The brushed aluminium finish makes this a stunning laptop but unfortunately means it can be easily scratched/damaged if used improperly. In terms of ports and jacks, one of the reasons I chose this laptop is that it is one of the only ultrabooks out there to have a VGA port, which is very useful to me.
Bad points:
There are only a few bad points to make about this superb laptop. The keys on the keyboard are relatively small and not particularly deep but you will soon get used to this new feel and then it actually becomes very pleasant to type with. Secondly, there are only two USB ports on this laptop which is slightly disappointing. A good tip to overcome this issue, however, is to use a Bluetooth mouse rather than a USB one as this will free up a port (I brought the Logitech M555b mouse which works wonders with the laptop's built-in Bluetooth). Windows 8 will also seem a bit foreign to begin with but, again, you'll soon get used to this new system. The glossy screen is unsuitable for use in very light conditions and the screen resolution is not at its best, but no worse than what you would expect from a standard laptop. The battery life is certainly not the 5 hours that is described but it still lasts a good 3 or 4 hours.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Nice looking laptop. Is very fast and easy to work once you get the hang of it. Touch screen is usefull and works well most of the time and really speeds up changing between apps and pages. Overall I am very pleased with it and is a great spec, reliable and definetly worth the money.
Bad points:
Jumps between different apps at times. Touch screen doesn't always work first time but overall works well. Isn't as light weight as other laptops available, but is a great sturdy computer that is still light enough to be carried in my bag.
