1 - Price - B - $468 - price is pretty good
2 - Performance- B - ok - i have to say when i first turned on the PC i thought it was going to be really slow because at first it was. then i realized that it was in power save mode automatically, you just have to turn it to high performance mode (same with all PC newer laptops) when its on its pretty fast. it has an A8 amd processor which is kinda in between intels i3 and i5, kinda. its really hard to say which is better, intel and amd i mean (if this is the breaking point) one really isn't better, then the other. though intel does control a larger market share then amd does ( if you dont know what market share is look it up) doesn't mean its better!! though the two brands do different things at different speeds you'll need to research it more if you need a powerful PC for a specific reason.
3 - Screen - B+ - the screen is pretty good, my last laptop(Toshiba satellite L675, which the screen failed reason why i got this laptop) had a screen with a higher resolution but it still looks really good. the hinges that connect the screen seem pretty solid as well.
4 - keyboard - A - it feels so nice, very high quality feel. best laptop keyboards i felt also the keys have a little space between them so you can avoid slipping while typing (wish it had a back lite keyboard, though that's only on the ultra book model and that's like a thousand bucks)
5 - mouse pad - C+ - i don't like the mouse pad too much,(continue reading for more) but its ok, just not what im used to (only negative thing about this PC in my opinion) the right and left button and joined as one which i don't like. moving the mouse around the screen can be a tad choppy but just takes some getting used to. there's also some features i like, such as; if you press down on the mouse pad with two fingers it acts a right click, similar to a mac. you can also scroll up down right and left with two fingers, similar to a mac though the mac mouse pad is alot better
6 - Audio/speakers - A+ - it has beats audio! its very high quality. if you use high quality head phones it sounds so much better then on a Ipod, or anything else. the speakers are really good compared to other laptops ive seen and heard. im a music person, play and record my own music and it sound great.
7 - structure/casing/outside - A+ - its mostly aluminum, which is great! looks and feels extremely high quality! it feels like it wont break which is really good considering how thin it is. 0.8 inch!!! that's insane!
8 - looks - A+ - there's pictures... it looks sweet! i like the red on the bottom.
9 - battery life - A- - ive seen people say different things about the envy sleekbook where some people say it have 4 hours of battery life where others say up to 9. i say the average battery life is about 4 and a half on high performance, 5 and a half on the energy star option and 6 on the power save option, though you lose ALOT of performance. you can also lower the brightness of the screen to save battery, turn of wifi and among other things, though for this size laptop and price pretty good battery.
10 - problems - i haven't encountered any problems yet if you don't count me forgetting my facebook password and thinking someone hacked my account. though ive only had the laptop for four days, but i don't foresee any problems.
