Editors Didn't Like

  • All USB ports are clustered on the same side, Speakers are loud, but tinny and annoying
  • Needs an extra battery for real endurance, Small touches, like the keyboard and touchpad, felt unrefined
  • AMD graphics switching still tied to clunky physical switch; without the extra slice, battery life is merely OK
  • Uninspiring construction, Gesturehating trackpad, Subpar battery life (no slice)
