Pro Large Battery, 57WAh
Second largest battery in an ultrabook next to Dell XPS 13 60WAh (as of late 2017). 8 - 10 hours with medium brightness and TLP on ElementaryOS. Watching video drains it quite a bit faster though.
Pro Slim and sturdy build
All metal, 2.6lbs, 0.5" thin chassis that feels solid and well built through and through. Screen hinge is also very strong.
Pro Excellent linux support
Elementary OS and Linux Mint both work without issues. The only thing that doesn't seem to work is the fingerprint scanner.
Pro Inexpensive for the great build and specs
Slim, light, metal build, strong hinge, large battery, great keyboard (soft, good key-travel) 7th gen core i5, 8gb RAM, 256gb SSD, 1080p IPS display and back-lit keyboard for $700.
Con Display is decent, but could be better
1080p IPS that isnt reflective nor touch screen. Enables lower brightness in bright rooms and saves battery life, but quality of screen could be much better.
Con The touchpad is good, but not great
The touchpad might work perfectly fine in Windows, but in Linux, it is not that great.
Con Occasional fan noise and coil whine
At times there can be some coil whine (as is common in ultrabooks), but it isnt terrible. The fan isnt and issue in normal browsing or document editing, but in anything remotely intensive it will spin up and is noticeable.
Con Bezels thicker than some modern designs
When compared to new screen designs on phones or the XPS line, the bezels are quite "old school" in comparison.
