Summary: Five hours of HD movie playback before conking out might fall short of an ARM tablet’s battery life, but it’s a good deal longer-lasting than a similarly spec’d Ultrabook. In the final tally, though, we’re not convinced that this is the ultimate dual-purpose device. Instead it seems like it’s trying to be too much, and falling short in both of its purposes in the process.
Summary: Runs and runs and runs. While Windows 8 tablets powered by Atom SoCs are literally flooding the market, ones with a Core i processor are still scarce. Some users doubt whether a Windows model can compete with the ARM competition particularly when it comes to battery runtimes. We took an in-depth look at this.
Pros: Strong battery, Very good viewing angles, Decent performance owing to the SSD, Pleasant feel, Agreeably slim design, Good keyboard, Quiet, The really good touchscreen alongside its crisp colors and great viewing angles.
Cons: Moderate build, Mediocre screen brightness, Poor cameras, Few interfaces, A second USB port should have been a must.
