Advantages: Bluetooth keyboard for easy typing
Disadvantages: Only available in windows 8
At first I was a little dubious about buying a non apple product as I have always been drawn to the apple family but I must say that this machine does exactly what it says on the tin. It is very responsive and compatible with many of my favorite apps.
I spent some researching notebooks as the prices vary wildly and as I needed a machine that was going to be used by the whole family it needed to fulfill a very demanding set of requirements.
I booted up the laptop and its connectivity was incredibly good instantly recognizing my wireless network and connecting straight away i was online within a matter of seconds!
The children watch movies and play games online so it needed to have a good processor speed which it has. The content downloads very quickly in comparison to other laptops that i have owned in the past.
This product has the windows 8 operating system which as a smart phone user i find very user friendly (if your an XP user it will take you a bit of time to get use to the new format but after time i have no doubt you will be won over).
It boasts 4gb of RAM which makes this laptop very responsive and switches between applications rapidly with no waiting time.
Battery life for this machine is difficult to rate. For standard use such as browsing and low CPU usage programs I would say that 6 hours would be the maximum you can expect from this product but with movies and game I would reduce this down to 4 hours.
I would recommend this product as it is a slim line, neat attractive and practical piece of technology. Its very user friendly and has a very vibrant and clear 1920 x 1080 full HD display.
I would recommend the purchasing of a blue tooth keyboard as it is an absolute dream, it immediately connects at the touch of a button and has never lost connectivity during my usage.
All in all, this laptop has it all, cutting edge technology and with a reasonable price tag. Top Class.
Summary: Great peice of technology and very easy to use and navigate
