"Stylish computer with fast boot up speed. The only problem that I have had with it is sometimes the mouse does not want to work when I first start the computer. To get it to work I have to put it to sleep and then open it up again and it works. Strange!"
"This is a no brainer compared to other Windows ultrabooks at the moment (March 29, 2013). The only comparable machine is the MacBook Air, which actually is comparable with small advantages in some areas while the Series 9 is better in others. Considering the MacBook Air is $200 more for the 256 GB SSD, it became and easy choice. I prefer its lighter weight, smaller size, nicer screen, and port setup better and I wanted a Windows machine where I didn't have to use Parallels or anything like that. Even if they were the same price, I would buy this one, but I wouldn't be able to fault someone for choosing the Air if you wanted Mac OS. I like this better though (I am a previous MacBook Pro owner and a programmer).
"I just purchased this notebook and what I like the most is the design. It's beautiful, high-quality and durable, and the performance is excellent so far. Another key factor is how light it is. You can carry it everywhere!"
"I bought this laptop for school since I quit lugging around my old laptop. It is super fast and extremely stylish, I get people marveling at it everywhere I go!! I very quickly got used to the multi-gesture trackpad and low keys, and the back lit keyboard is very handy! The screen is very sharp and I also watch lots of movies/TV on it which is great. So far I have had no issues with it at all! The only slight design flaw would be the fact that the USB port and the power plug are very close, but for the narrower USBs everything can still fit."
"I travel frequently - and I really appreciate the compact size and reduced weight of my Series 9 13.3". I especially like the small, light power adapter. Even better, the screen is rock solid: it doesn't vibrate or flop around on a jittery jet ride. The machine is fast! Boot, reboot, and return from sleep times are astonishing (for a Windows PC). I didn't want a tablet so I am very happy with Windows 7. This is the first laptop (of the six I've had) that I am actually proud to own."
"What immediately attracted me to this laptop was the design. It's sleek and simple, and is in my opinion the best looking ultrabook out there. After doing some research I decided to purchase this laptop, and I have not been disappointed. The screen has excellent resolution and is easy to see from any angle, it is great for carrying around, and the battery life is impressive. I take this with me to school everyday and have logged around 10 hours without charging (on the lowest screen brightness and average use). Only downside I've noticed is the track pad can be stubborn at times. Not an issue for me though. You'll spend a little more then similar spec uiltrabooks but it's definitely worth the money."

No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

"Problems with right click - sometimes disappears. Cursor jumps to other locations while user is typing, often. Basic restore does not fix. Nor full restore. Machine freezes, have to use command prompt sfc /scannow to fix - but it's temporary. Computer unusable."
