Decent build;Excellent keyboard and touchpad;Slightly above average browsing battery runtime;An IPS panel suitable for more than just office work;No PWM above 70 cd/m2 (47%) screen brightness

Limited storage upgradability (no M.2 SSD slot);No LED keyboard backlight;A bit on the hefty side for a 14-incher
