Criteria Comments Rating
  • Speed and features Very snappy performance with the Core i5 processor and intel HD 4000 graphics. great!
  • Design and form factor It works really well as an ultrabook, and although it is a bit heavy as a tablet, it is very usable while sitting on the couch or on the plane. great!
  • Battery life Not bad for a high performance ultrabook. Bad only if you compare with dedicated tablets. good
  • Display The 1080p IPS display is stunning. great!
  • Durability The carbon fiber shell and glass screen are quite durable. great!
  • Expandability Only 2 usb ports and no SD card reader. so-so
  • Noise You can hear the fan sometimes under load but nothing out of the ordinary for an ultrabook. good
  • Portability (size / weight) As an ultrabook it is ok, as a tablet it would be considered quite heavy. good
