    Anyone buying this one or interested in it? For $1200, 8th gen Core i5 and they supposedly boost the clockspeed a little higher.. its not a bad deal. Also a full size ethernet port and VGA port in an ultrabook that weighs 2.3lbs.. in 2018! I guess thats a huge plus for business users but no T3 :/ its got old ports but a modern design interestingly. Competes with the X1 Carbon, Macbook Pro, XPS 13, etc

    Its a worse culprit than the HPs with that screen/keyboard lift. Its an issue if you want to use it on your lap. From experience with one of these types of machines, it either digs in uncomfortably; or any movement of you lap can push the lid forward.

    Also if you wish to use the screen at any angle other than the full open position, it can close on your hands.

    Otherwise it has good build quality, and probably same performance as Lenovo X1, HP Spectre 13, and Dell XPS 13 competition (they all throttle under sustained load down to the same numbers).

    If only they had a higher resolution. Reminds me of my old Z21.
