Expert Reviews

10 October 2015

There is not much more to say about Broadwell-U at this point. Skylake is literally already announced. Acer sent me this notebook a couple of months ago, but it was still going to be tight with...

Well made and nice looking, thin body, decent keyboard and trackpad, excellent touchscreen, runs mostly quiet and cool, fair battery life, cheaper than the competition
Highquality build
Extremely slim casing
WQHD screen
Multitouch screen
Annoying keyboard layout, quiet speakers, very sharp metallic edges
Glaretype screen
Reduced brightness in battery mode
Only few maintenance and upgrade options
Comparatively short battery life
