Editors Didn't Like

  • Touchpad is still finnicky, Few ports, Cumbersome as a tablet
  • Uncomfortable temperatures when stressed, Could use a third USB port
  • The accelerometer can get confused when flipping the screen around and the fan gets very loud. It also lacks an SD card slot and HDMI output
  • No SD Card slot; Heavy for a tablet
  • Noisy, screen flicker, no HDMI out
  • Battery life is only OK, More fan noise than we'd like, Slightly heavier than some 13inch Ultrabooks on the market despite smaller screen size, Port selection is a little light, and there's no SD card reader
