Fast...quiet....windows 8 can be made to be like windows 7 in an hour or so.Great screen....all good...but beware..it is heavy....not to be tucked under the arm. It is a desktop replacement. I will keep it for a downstairs 'desktop'...but it wont be coming on holidays with me!!! The 0.9 mp camera needs to b tweaked in low light..backlight. Window 8metro apps are a nightmare!
