4.0 out of 5 stars Must get an SSD with this, then this is great., 12 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Beware that when I first received this laptop, it was.... slow. The laptop literally took full 2 minutes every time to boot up, and everything else seemed very laggy. After a couple of days, it got better so it might have been partly because of program installations. Another problem was that even though the fan was very very silent, there was always this annoying buzzing. Not super loud but always noticeable in the background. Then I've decided to get a SSD (Samsung Evo SSD 240GB for those wondering)...
And now this thing flies! Everything is super smooth now, and it's completely silent! The keyboard, even though a little shallow which prevents very fast typing, is very pleasant for normal typing. The trackpoint is also handy from time to time.Touchpad is very smooth and feels premium, and the additional two keys keep the productivity up. It's very light, but feels like it could take a hitting, as it's rock-solid sturdy. The anti-glare screen is very helpful as well, as I get quite easily annoyed by light reflections.
On a last note, bearing in mind that you may pay additional money for an SSD or RAM, I wouldn't recommend buying this for the full price. However, if you happen to find one for below 700 (like I did here) and you really value sturdy productivity-machine that's gonna last you a looong time, then I'd definitely recommend this as one of the very top of its category.

2.0 out of 5 stars OK look, but terribly manufactured, 2 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
On the outside it looks not bad, but the left ear-hanging didn't bend to the maximum and you had to use quite some force to bend it at all, so if you look at them closely while wearing them, they're asymetric. One-wear sunglasses I guess, you get what you pay for.
