What is wonderful about this hybrid is that is defiantly more of a laptop with the convenient option of becoming a tablet when you need it. Whereas most other hybrids are more of a tablet that can click onto a keyboard and "look" like a laptop. The quad core i7 makes this a nice powerful laptop and the SSD (although still skeptical of the technology) runs very fast and seamlessly. What I think I love best about this laptop is that all you have to do is close the lid for it to light up into a tablet. No twisting motion, no flipping the whole thing backwards and possibly damaging wires over time and inviting disaster. The design is very simple and I am sure will prove to last longer than the more creative laptop to tablet transformations.
The tablet screen is obnoxiously sensitive; one spec of dust will "x" out of what you are working on. Since the tablet screen is on the opposite side of the laptop screen it is very vulnerable to damage so be very careful with handling and traveling. The tablet screen also starts to lag and freak out if you switch from stylus to touch too frequently or too quickly.
Overall, wonderful product. This has been invaluable with my school work and storing of my notes. The screen maybe sensitive but it works well enough to work with Photoshop if you are illustrating or with one-note for taking notes. My biggest recommendation for anyone considering buying this product would be to keep the soft sleeve it comes with and travel with a hard laptop bag/case, not a backpack or a messenger bag or anything else that would allow pressure to be put on the screen my accident. Also, keep the screen as clean as possible.
