With a 15.6¡¨ FHD IPS display in a 5.87mm bezel, you get more screen space in a smaller chassis.

    Oh, such kind of innovation. I never seen this in Lg Gram or Dell XPS 13. But, competition is always good.

    Bonus: 055: min fail.

  9. Alex Popowski says:

    What is the release date in the UK? We usually get screwed with laptop releases, some don't even release over here :(!

  14. Nick Ngu says:

    Finger print sensor not so good tho. Not very reliable. Sometimes it takes me a few times before it recognises my finger print. Battery life isn't that great as well. 4-5 hours

  15. Bugs says:

    no thunderbolt 3. garbage

  16. Nikhil Kohli says:

    Where can I get this wallpaper?

  17. prasanna says:

    What about keyboard and thermal performance,I guess there will be a trade off since this laptop is very slim

  18. Dipak Jadhav says:

  29. Torre Florim says:

    Touchscreen on a recessed display? That's weird, especially for peeps with big fingers. Hitting the Windows button in the corner will be hard.

  30. gamer dt says:

    Look how the screen wobbles at 1:28. I think the screen has a lot of flex to it.
