I've been waiting for (stalking) this laptop since it was announced at CES, so when word came out that it was finally going to be available in June, I was thrilled. Unfortunately, Amazon kept saying it was still a pre-order, even well past the June 24th release date that Amazon published on their site (as of writing this review, Amazon provides for a 3-4 week shipping time). I was able to order it from another online retailer on July 2nd, and with overnight shipping had it in my hands on the 3rd.

At this point I've had the S5 for a little over 24 hours... but here is what I've seen.

The Good:
-Super fast load times, fast install times, just overall snappy response.
-The metalic case has a nice feel. Much nicer than the last Acer laptop I used (an Acer One Netbook)
-Video is clear and sharp to my eyes. I saw some of the forums complained about the resolution, but I use my computer for work and browsing, not gaming or watching hi-def videos.
-Comes with a blue-tooth mouse. This is probably in the product description someplace, but I hadn't noticed it. It appears to be the logitech V470.

The Mediocre
-The keyboard has a bit of a weird feel to it, though I understand this is a common issue with ultrabooks due to the lack of depth in the case. Doesn't feel bad, just weird.
-A couple times I've come close to dropping it when it started to slip out of my hands, may need to add some grip tape or something. This may just be me though.
-The Magic Flip I/O port is surprisingly noisy. I was expecting something a little more refined.

The Bad
-The screen hinge is a little soft, causing the screen to move back and forth when I type. More of an annoyance.

I got this laptop yesterday. I was in the market for an Ultrabook with all-SSD storage, which, it turns out, narrows down the options quite a bit. It turns out that most Ultrabooks have regular spinning drives for mass storage, plus a small SSD for quick booting, etc.

One unique feature is the "I/O door". Basically, during normal use, the USB, etc. ports are hidden. You press a button on the top-right area of the keyboard and a little motor activates and sort of extrudes the ports. The whole back of the laptop lifts a quarter inch or so. I didn't even know about the I/O door before I opened the package, so it wasn't a selling point for me. Seems like a decent idea--the ports should get less gunked up if they're hidden during normal unplugged use and when it's sitting in a bag.

- Very fast.
- Very nice screen.
- Boots hella fast.
- All SSD storage, and enough of it for this to be your primary computer (256GB)
- Good power consumption, although I haven't really tested it yet. It lasted several hours last night, and it was downloading gigabytes of updates and email the whole time.
- Light (just over 2.5 pounds)
- Thin
- Comes with an HDMI-to-VGA adapter for older monitors

- Fan is somewhat noisy and runs most of the time. I guess that's what you get with so much awesome inside, but I feel like the cooling could be better designed.
- I/O door is noisy. Not a big deal, but it surprised me the first time I opened it. If you have pets, they might freak out.
- Could be a little sturdier. I was coming from a MacBook Pro, which was really solid. I don't expect problems with this, but you can tell it's made a little more cheaply.

This is possibly one of the fastest laptops I have ever used in my life. With its usage of Solid State Drive and an Intel Core i7 Processor, its turning on time and shutting down time is blazing fast. From sleep mode, it will return to where you left at within 1 second and from a shut down mode to on, it takes less than 10 seconds. It's a ready when you need it laptop. A perfect one for business and school/college work.

It's slimness is fascinating considering the automated usb drives and such. The 250GB is a no problem if it is planned to be used for work instead of any media heavy/video game heavy files.

The Good/Benefits:
-It's ultra fast (1 second boot from sleep and 6 second boot from off)
-It's ultra slim
-Has Thunderbolt (Although there really is no purpose for this)
-Has 2 3.0 USB Drives

The Oks...
-Good enough screen (Not that clear, not that pixelized.
-Good enough Keyboard (The keyboard is a bit noisy when typing up in the night, and it could possibly disturb someone sleeping)
-A solid 6.25 Hours of Battery life

The disadvantages:
-Hot! Hot! Hot! (This laptop's temperature increases like crazy compared to others with just browsing)
-The screaming noise when you turn open and close the USB port thing.
-USB port thing opens and closes when it gets too hot for "more ventilation"
-Very noisy fan

Overall: If you don't mind the noise and put in ear plugs whenever you work, then you are completely find with this ultrabook. Just like how I'm writing this review with this laptop, you want to get more out of this speed!
