    "pros: - expand storage with micro SD - dedicated HDMI port, two USB-C, one USB-A - integrated graphics is enough for older or less demanding games, or programs named after citrus fruits, without sacrificing much battery life - manjaro linux runs great - I did not notice coil whine when using the laptop - fingerprint reader if you want it cons: - a bit heavier than other laptops in the same category - yogas pretend to be tablets by letting you flip the screen all the way around, but I find it impractical - fan is a bit louder than similar laptops when running under heavy load on battery, I got about 6 hours by streaming a video through the browser with brightness and sound at 50%. this is with the charging protection enabled, so it started at just 80% battery. with other tasks like light browsing you could probably get a lot more than 6 hours, and you would get the most by not enabling charging protection.
