Sure, this laptop does not have fantastic IO, the Alcantara fabric is uncharted territory (although I had a surface pro 3 with 2 type covers and they held up very well) and it is not exactly the fastest system out there, but this laptop hits a sweet spot for me. Its the 3:2 aspect ratio. I recently purchased and returned an XPS 15, and I have to say that this screen feels bigger to me because of all the vertical real estate. I do a lot of work in photoshop, I'll take height over width any day of the week. A lot less scrolling for documents and surfing the web too. I haven't had quite enough time to really get a feeling for the power of this pc, but I was able to get most of what I needed to get done on the go with my SP3, so this should do nicely. I have a desktop for all the heavy lifting. The keyboard so far is a dream. Best I have had on a laptop, and that's coming from a former Mac guy. And while we are on the subject of Macs, if you are thinking of trying out a PC, this could be the one for you. I loved my Macs, but Windows gives me a bit more flexibility I feel. This computer is the closest I have seen to a Windows PC matching the user experience of a Mac. So far so good.
