"Functionality vs Size"4.5 starson by lewisliaw
Pros: Functionality wins most of the time; 14.1 is bigger than most tablet labtops and the performance is great for its price
Cons: yes, it is a bit heavy but doesn't bother me much
Summary: I've owned five labtops in my life time and I find this one to be the most useful for business use. After owning those latest tiny Sony with 13.1 wide screen I feel that small size and sleek design is a huge waste of money and sacrifice too much in utility. Yes, small size is convinient but for any average size male what's a different of a 3-4 lbs. Experience tells me I rather have a regular size keyboard(so I do not have to adjust between labtop and desktop.) the swirling screen is great.
I do not want to be a sexist but I start to wonder if the rating on labtops is affected by female editors on CNET because why would a few lbs make a huge difference in portability??? I think its more of an hassle to carry an extra drive than a heavier laptop. Sure if you are someone who has trouble lifting 10 lbs around then yeah this might not be great but if you are looking for functionality and a bargain then there are few other choices especially when one comes with 14.1 screen
