We highly recommend it. - EngadgetEngadget Reader40March 5, 2014Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!Oh my, I can't control this computer!! I love the concept and was excited to get it. But let me tell you, I've had it a couple days and it is going home. The touch screen is confusing.....it doesn't work. I have to press multiple times to get it to do process the application I want to open. I swear the computer is possessed because the computer randomnly moves and processes pages and so forth. The right click on the mouse is useless, because when I right click a link or anything, it wants to left click, The bottom of the computer, when the screen is open, is sharp, so it cuts into your leg when it's on my "lap". When you write on the screen with the pen in full flat mode, you can't put your hand on the screen, so you have to write with your hand in the air. As i write this review, I'm surprised a new page hasn't opened or that the mouse jumped someplace not intended. Maybe I have everything set incorrectly, but I'm sending it back anyway. The uncomfortability on my lap, is not good. I did calibrate the system with the pen, it worked temporarily and then an hour later it went back to jumping everywhere on the page and opening all these windows. I did a virus check (although I only had the system for 2 day), just in case, because as I said, I thought the system was possessed. I have windows 8.1 professional. When typing, also you have to go and hit the keys several times, because it frequently doesn't recognize the key unless you press down hard on it. Hmmmmm........don't know what else to say. I saw so many great reviews, so I wanted to send this out there so people do NOT buy this system! It does process fast, so that is good. (I have the i7, windows 8.1 pro, 8gb ram) But probably too fast if I can't even manage the computer. Oh yeah, another positive, it doesn't get hot on my lap. The screen is bright. But webpages are blurry.....but I'm not sure what that is all about. Really great idea....tablet that's 14" and computer......but I don't wanna be the guinea pig on this until they perfect the systems. I'm better off sticking with a less expensive computer I can upgrade in a year. Oops, forgot one thing. Somehow in the random opening of applications the computer frequently does, it opened the camera. I could not get it out of camera mode at all. The only resolution to this was to finally power the whole computer down completely and restart. Hey the pro?? The computer started fast woohoo!Engadget Reader90January 7, 2014Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!The best in its category.

Light weight with great screen are perfect. Touch screen comes in handy for the times when a laptop isn't necessary.I purchased the Core i5-4200U CPU, 8GB RAM, and 500GB HDD model. Will likely look into upgrading to a SSD later, if possible.
