Things I dislike about it:
Not the best designed laptop, but the body feels sturdy and the piano gloss finish is sleek. It would be best to get it protected though, as its prone to scratches and finger marks. The keyboard is weird, especially if you're switching from a mac. It takes time to getting used to. The touchpad is not my favorite either, it's not as responsive so I just always use a blue tooth mouse.
Things I love about it:
Performance is great considering the price I got it for (1299$). It's blazing fast and the display is above average - excellent. The resolution is great at 1920x1280. The colors appear clear and accurate. In fact I compared the colors with my macbook air and my macbook screen looks washed out. HD movies look great on it and the screen size is great for working. Sound is incredible. The Bang & Olufsen audio is worth it, and it comes with its own subwoofer.
Other things to note:
Battery life is average, 2-3 hours on battery, even 4 when on power saver. Doesnt heat up as much as my mac book, always in good temperatures .It's a bit heavy, but expected for its size.
The good: Good value for the price tag. Great screen resolution and colors. Amazing sound quality. Great for working/designing.
The not so good: A bit heavy. It's one of those laptops you leave in your office, not the one you bring in cafes.
The bad: keyboard is weird, takes time to get used to.
