The most notable feature, however, is the touchscreen capability, which takes advantage of the new touch interface on Microsoft’s Windows 8 operating system.

The 11 inch model also has the ability to fold over to a completely flat display, and comes with an aluminum lid rather than one covered with Gorilla Glass like its 13 inch siblings.

All models come with 4GB of RAM, SSD drives configured in RAID 0 arrays for ultrafast read/write speeds, and integrated Intel HD 4000 graphics.
