Excellent laptop, good battery and strong performance.
When doing simple things such as word processing or reading a pdf you can easily reach over 18 hours. It is fantastic to go to uni without a charger.
Thin and light, with a good screen. For those who are concerned about non retina - 13in has a higher resolution than the 13in non retina Mac Pro (In fact it is the same as the 15in non retina pro). So for those coming from a standard macbook pro, you would have no issues. Plus there is only so much work that you can do on a 13in screen so that's when you add a second display (which works great by the way).
I find that there are enough ports. Just get a USB HUB and you'll be good to go.
The IO is fast. Dead FAST.
From USB 3, Bluetooth 4, 802.11ac, thunderbolt, sdxc card reader and the SSD.
This really boosts performance on whatever you are doing.
In conclusion, this is a fantastic, all rounded laptop. For college, work, every-day.
As far as thin and light goes, it is more ultrabook than an ultrabook.
Additionally, it is cheaper than some of its competitors (like the vaio )
