The laptop performs very well, just as expected from the upgraded processor and RAM. I'm an independent game developer, and I can easily run Photoshop, Unity 5, and Visual Studio Community 2015 all at
Quiet as a, well, as a spectre Even under full load I can't hear it at all
Well ventilated. Never gets more than warm, even under full load
Light, slim, easy to carry
Switching between laptop, tent, and tablet mode is easy and seamless
Wish it came with Windows 10 pre-installed, took me almost a full day before I could really start using it
The trackpad should disable itself by default when the machine is in tablet mode, like the keyboard does. Can be a little weird depending on how you hold it
Windows 10 virtual keyboard is sometimes weird in tenttablet mode. Like, pops up and then disappears when you start typing. Doesn't always happen
