    Very good user reviews on Amazon
    Sufficient processing power for multi-tasking, internet, music, movies, productivity(Word, Spreadsheets, etc), advanced photo and video editing, 3D graphics, virtualization software(parallels), file and harddrive encryption
    Memory sufficient for multi-tasking, internet, music, movies, productivity(Word, Spreadsheets, etc), basic photo and video editing
    Memory may not be sufficient for simultaneous editing of large number of photos and videos, virtualization software(parallels), engineering and simulation software, etc
    Solid state drive provides quick startup, silent operation, faster response compared to conventional harddrive
    Battery life is unknown.
    Medium GPU allows playing most demanding games, but only at low detail settings and resolution, and less demanding games (WoW, Sims3, etc) at high settings and resolution
    GPU is not suitable for latest, demanding games (Assassin's creed, Black Ops 2, etc) at high or medium detail settings and resolution
    11.6" screen suitable for portability; too small as desktop replacement or gaming
    No built-in CD/DVD drive; Reduces weight but watching movies or installing software from CD/DVD will require separate purchase of optical drive
    Integrated webcam for video chatting
    Processing power might not be sufficient for ultra high requirements such as running simulations
