Thanks for the review. I have one and think it is great. Agree about the screen resolution and how windows handles it - I run it at 1920 x 1080 because an app I use simply doesn't scale at all and is unusable at full resolution. Other than that it does everything I want. I agree it works best as a laptop and that's how I use it most, but there are times when the tablet (and other hybrid modes) are really useful, thus it was the best device that I found that met my requirements. And it looks cool in orange! lol
A few errors in your review around the specs available though!!. The base i5 model (at £999) has a 256GB SSD (not 128GB as your mention). I don't think the 128GB version is available in the UK. Also there doesn't appear to be an i3 version at all (maybe there was at launch?) The top of the range is actually £1300 and includes a 512GB SSD (not 256GB as you state - there is a 256GB i7 version - but that is £1100).
surface 3 looks to be a better bet
Wow, what a great insight! Depends what you are looking for. And spec for spec the Surface 3 is more expensive. I think if you want more tablet than laptop rather than more laptop than tablet then you are probably right.
Got this laptop for my girlfriend and we are totally in love with it. Connectivity is an issue though, so we plan on getting a USB 3.0 dongle. We have the i5 128Gb version, which is a European model. Wi-Fi speeds seem to be sufficient, but range could be better. Shame about a lack of Ethernet dongle.
Strange thing is that the keyboard layout is different than the one pictured in your review, with the return key actually being double-height. Hence there's no real keyboard layout issues with the European model.
Overall, i'd give it a strong 9/10. It's light, slim, fast and good-looking :)
no it sucks
does text look blurry when you downscale it to 1920x1080?
