GREAT to see 1600x900. HORRIBLE to see shiny reflective screen :(

NICE to see full height cursor keys. WHY make the up/down so narrow? :(

Yet another "not quite good enough" ultrabook.

I guess from a business perspective, if the laptop encompassed every feature, there would be no path for subsequent models to upgrade, lessening the appeal perhaps.
