Performance and software:

However, it is unable to push graphics intensive games like world of Warcraft, league of legends etc. It also remains cool and Silent while operating. The battery life is average with it barely lasting 4 hours on a single charge with normal usage. The speakers are also underwhelming. It has 64 bit DOS operating system out of the box. Most of you who want windows will have to install it yourself.
