The Pros:Much lighter than the average laptop, easy to carry around. HDMI input works well, no drivers or special setup, just plug it in and it works. Heavy computing power, can handle multiple apps and browser windows easily.
The Cons:Runs very hot, feels uncomfortable if you rest it directly on your lap. Battery doesn't last very long between charges.
