Thin, Often on the move

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Very stylish and light as I wanted. Performance is good.14" screen is very convenient for watching movies or studying. I used this laptop on my lap , it is not heating up.As I have to read alot on the computer, it is recommanded. Battery charger is not as hot as samsaung one. If it was window 7 installed , that would be fantastic.
Bad points:
Roaming noises only sometimes and some kind of gliding noise inside. You can barely hear it but I use it in my room and as it is quiet I can hear it. I think for a new machine, I wouldnt like it. I m not sure if it is because of the system recorvery and reinstallation has done on the machine when I bought it. It may not be the case on the other machine of that same kind. I had to exchange it with another brand as the store did not have the stock for this item. But I still would recommand to someone.

Good points:
PC is itself OK.
Bad points:
Windows 8 is a disaster. What on earth are M'soft thinking ? Wish I chosen Windows 7 which I use at work - far superior.

Reidy, Business user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
For the price including 16GB of memory it’s really good. I couldn't find another Ultra Book that can hold that amount of memory. I can easily run 5-6 virtual machines without affecting performance of using Windows 8 in the background.

At 1.8KG it’s not the lightest but by no means the heaviest and I can still take it around with me.

Keyboard is good with decent feedback.

Good screen resolution
Bad points:
Speakers are not great

Have to be careful with the mouse as it clicks on the Windows 8 tiles when working on the desktop normally which can be annoying. (With practice it will be fine I am sure)

Battery life is not the best

Comes with far too much “Toshiba” software preloaded.
