_
"There is no lag on normal Windows tasks, and you can play games on it (although there might be some lag until you adjust the settings down).The battery life is good but not great, but I often use it plugged in."
_
"Apple makes superb laptops and the 2013 Air (which I have) is just outstanding with seriously scary (good) battery life."

"I love the form factor, weight, screen, battery life and pretty much everything else about this machine, but the two issues above make it very difficult to use."
_
"The pros are:--lightweight--beautiful 3200x1800 display--good audio--decent design, nothing special--decent battery lifeBut the pros are irrelevant if you need something to perform actual computer functions."

"WHEN MY WIFI COMPLETELY FAILED AFTER A STANDARD WINDOWS UPDATE, SAMSUNG'S BEST ADVICE?"
_
"CONS (a Windows issue, not a Samsung issue)I only have one caution: the screen resolution is so high, so amazing, that Windows cannot deal with it well and it results in the desktop icons looking too small, and the many Office programs having buttons and writing that is too small."
_
"Asus zenbook failed me with often crash windows 8, maybe it is due to its window 8 OS."
_
"However, it works great with Windows 10 Preview."
_
"Great laptop although Windows 8 is a new learning experience."
_
"There is not way to downgrade to windows 7 ultimate because the drivers don't exist in windows 7.The computer is nice and thin."
