If I was looking at a new laptop at the moment, this would be well up on the list. Despite its failings, the fact that I could potentially replace my tablet and laptop with one device is a big win. The weight and lack of battery in certain circumstances are the biggest drawbacks that would make me seriously look elsewhere. I would like to have seen the screen delivered with higher resolution and a bit more a of responsive touch to the keyboard, this is my personal preference though – not a specific problem with the hardware.

All-in-all we’ve got a great experience with this laptop. We love to see more and more convertible devices, as this would generally mean that the technology is improving, as there is more competition. However, we were most impressed by the performance of the laptop, as well as its looks.

Intel UHD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2, 24 EUs) found on some Kaby-Lake-Refresh CPU models (15 W ULV series). Technically identical to the previous Kaby-Lake GPU called HD Graphics 620.
Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.
i5-8265U: Whiskey Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Kaby Lake but produced in a further improved 14nm++ process). The four cores are clocked between 1.6 and 3.9 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.
The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
