Most helpful reviews

Arifa, England University student

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
Very fast and generally just easy to use. No real problems or glitches- works pretty well.
Price is good for an ultrabook of its spec.
Looks very sleek
Slim and lightweight so very easy to carry around and take your work with you.
Bad points:
The size is awkward- hard to find laptop sleeves etc in this size, also it says its good for wthing movies but because its so wide you still get the black bars on the sides of the screen-even on youtube videos. Also its hard to get a good wallpaper as they stretch and just get pixelated.
The screen and keyboard also seem quite flexible and not strong. Also hard to type on it, need to press the keys quite hard.
