So far this has proved to be a really nice product. Nice clear and large screen, fab keyboard feel and smart overall look. As per several of the other reviews we read, the mouse pad is very sensitive and takes a bit of getting used to, particularly with Windows 8. I am using a wireless mouse now, so it is not a problem. It had a small problem with loading updates to W8, hopefully this will go away. Loaded other MS products, which all went ok. Overall I would say good value for money.
