Intel Haswell platform for ultra mobile devices is very good and offers a good combination of performance and autonomy that exceeds 8hrs. It has a 1.6GHz Intel Core i5-4200U dual-core processor with hyper-threading (up to 2.6GHz in Turbo mode), with 4GB of DDR3 memory, integrated Intel HD 4400 graphics and a 128GB capacity SSD. Although LAN is lacking, there is a built-in WiFi (it is supporting 802.11 a/b/g/n dual band at 2.4GHz and 5GHz), Bluetooth 4.0, and Intel WiDi technology that sends pictures from the computer to compatible devices (newer projectors, for example). The chiclet keyboard is comfortable to use, offering a spacious touchpad that can be used even when the display is not connected. This is an interesting concept that will suit those who are looking for an ultra compact laptop with 13.3" screen, along with the autonomy better than average, and a possibility to detach the screen of the keyboard and use the device as a tablet. Price is slightly higher, which is not surprising since it is a Premium model. This interesting device will certainly be popular.
Positive: Full HD screen; great performance. Negative: High price.
