3.0 out of 5 stars Excellent battery life, 23 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Pros:
Excellent battery life; upwards of six hours
Very light weight

Cons:
Extremely slow; often struggles with basic web-browsing using chrome at around five tabs
Touchpad often freezes; can be easily fixed each time, but still frustrating
Will not install Debian (Jessie or Wheezy) nor Ubuntu (14) so stuck with Windows 8.1

It's the speed and lack of OS support that I find problematic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Weird and wonderful, 19 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Imaginaerum (MP3 Download)
With the exception of track 12 I feel this is a fantastic album. Each track stands well on its own, and they gain from being listened to in order. It is sometimes strange, often surreal and mixes styles together beautifully. The repetitive nature of the genre combined with unusually strong melodies does tend to get stuck in your head, but it's worth that annoyance and I still listen to it when I want to ignore the world.

4.0 out of 5 stars Scottish Pirate Metal, 19 Dec. 2013

"Scottish Pirate Metal" is how it was recommended to me, and it's pretty much what I had hoped for. Great for an energy / mood boost. Listen to the samples of the tracks - they give a pretty fair overview.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's working, but not very well, 19 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The outlet tray doesn't work at all - pages just fall off and end up jumbled
I've had two paper jams in eight print jobs
Attempting to Duplex went horribly wrong - it printed pages 1-56 (of 112) then printed pages 1-56 again on the back, not 57-112.

Apart from that it's small, cheap, wifi works well and the print quality is great (when it works).
