Pros useful to go between tablet and laptop
great travel work computer
battery life is sufficient, better than surface pro
Cons none, although I have had limited time with this.
Summary I've only had my 11s for one week on a business trip to India, but I don't have any complaints. I logged onto cnet to check out glowing reviews and was surprised at the 3.5 rating, because to me it is a 5 star product. I have been in meetings, traveling in a plane, riding in the back of a taxi, and I have found the ability to go between tablet mode and laptop mode extremely helpful. I understand that in reviewing products one has to be critical, but this is a tremendous product. The built quality is excellent, and I have yet to have the battery life be an issue. I suppose the sony vaio and air are excellent products, but they can't become tablets. I am 6'3" and have long arms, and it is very useful to convert this into tablet mode when on long flights. Yet this is a much more powerful "tablet". It actually can run full office applications and has a longer running battery than the surface pro, plus functions as a better laptop than the surface pro. If you are into specs (the fact that this doesn't have the latest processor or the highest resolution) then I can understand if you want to downgrade the rating, but if you are into real world functionality, then there is nothing like it out there! Great product.
Pros Excellent battery life, good quality keyboard & trackpad, good quantity of ports, speaker sound quite reasonable, super quiet fans, cool operation
A very fast machine, virtually no delays on anything as a heavy business user.
Cons No complaints really, other than the first one I had did not fare well when a glass Chianti found its way into the interior via the keyboard. So a better moisture barrier would have been appreciated, but not necessarily a machine issue.
Summary Highly recommend this device as a laptop alone, but with the added benefits of being able to functionally use it as a tablet particularly when in flight or in other less optimal working environments.
Pros light, fast, and very versatile
Cons none yet, maybe the screen resolution being one step down from the MS Surface
Summary I was looking at the MS Surface 2 pro then this came out. This version has better specs than the Cnet review.. its got a i5 4020 processor (4th gen), same as the surface. Laptop or tablet mode and more is a plus when you need it. Only one pound more @3 pounds than the surface and just a bit bigger. Only small drawback if the display res is one step less than the surface.. But since I'll be using this mostly for work, it didn't matter. Not worried about watching videos on a 11 in screen. Oh one more big factor.. I picked this up for $750 at BB., the Surface +have to buy a keyboard is more than $200 more..
