Our friends at notebookjournal (germany) were able to get their hands on it and they praised its display and spacious hard drive. Its chic design will also find its fans. Priced around 1000 Euros, the notebook offers an amazing package and a near perfect display. Thanks to its discrete graphics processor, even the newest games run smoothly.
The unit does runs pretty hot after few minutes of operation. Its alternatives include Macbook Air 13, Samsung 900X1B and 900X3B, but all are sold for a higher price. Lenovo X220 and Ideapad U300s 108026U are also nice alternatives but are let down by their HD (1366 x 768) display. If can settle for a bigger display, the Samsung NP900X4C-A01UK is a good option too. It comes with 15 inch screen that has 1600 x 900 pixel resolution.
