No one tests computers like we do. The key word in that sentence is “could”, because in reality this laptop is not able to sustain constant high-loads for a long period of time. The hinge is visually stunning, but the design is unfortunately not stiff enough, which impacts some of the usage modes negatively. is roughly 22 % slower, but still offers very acceptable performance. Since there is no maintenance flap, opening the convertible requires the removal of ten screws. The big battery, excellent keyboard/trackpad, larger 13.9" screen and splendid build quality are its main selling points, but the the speakers or the everyday use performance are not far off.

The former is a great, sharp option and the latter is a little more limited in terms of brightness and color coverage, but still a good pick overall, as well as a cheaper and less power hungry. The notebook easily handles even more demanding software titles. From a technical standpoint, the convertible convinces as well and offers performance on a very high level. Given that this is a convertible which can be used as a tablet as well, the viewing angle stability is of particular importance. frequency)Highs 2 - 16 kHz(+) | balanced highs - only 2.9% away from median(+) | highs are linear (3.8% delta to prev.
