Great Ultrabook with some Flaws
By Ultrabook Lover
from Dallas, TX
This is a great ultrabook at a great price, unfortunately the screen resolution is subpar in my opinion. If they can increase the resolution, i'd pay a little more for the same laptop.
from San Lorenzo, CA
great ultrabook, light and powerful.
