Just got it up and running today and very pleased. SSD despite being non-cutting edge is very fast. Startup in 15-20 seconds, apps open superfast. Glossy screen does not appear to be a problem for me I was a little concerned with that. Scored over 10k on geekbench. I'm very pleased so far - nice looking screen, no dead pixels. Machine runs VERY quiet. For anyone considering one I would highly recommend based on my observations so far.
