The keyboard has the shift key abbreviated and the arrow keys smashed, which takes some getting used to as a developer. The media keys are well positioned and easily accessible, and the trackpad is smooth and efficient with palm rejection and Windows Precision drivers. The device's smudginess is mentioned, especially for those with greasy fingers and those who enjoy eating while working. Overall, the impressions of using the device as a laptop are good, despite its weight compared to other laptops.
