Just feast your eyes on that metal frame, with its edge-to-edge backlit keys. At a minimum, there's a Core i5 processor and 8GB of memory in there, plus a blazing fast 256GB solid state drive.

...and a single full-size USB 3.0 port on the left. Plus a headphone jack.

Particularly since it's not thinner and lighter enough (2.85 pounds, 13.8mm thick) to use in tablet form for more than a couple minutes at a time.
