  • Pros: Respectable battery life on Intel graphics, Reasonably portable form factor, weight, Easy-to-switch graphics, Modest gaming performance, Solid touchpad and keyboard
  • Cons: Loaded to the gills with bloatware, Below-par webcam quality, Low-resolution screen, Cheap-feeling plastic lid, Weak speakers
