Great system, only held back by a 1080p display in 2020.

Cheap plasticky feel, doesn't feel sturdy while using, for the light weight and for the specs this should be $900

i have one of these non-touchscreen versions and this has been a great laptop. it is unbelievably light and the thermals have been really good. the screen quality is good, keyboard is decent, and the laptop supports usb C charging. for the people complaining about the cheap quality, yes, it "feels" cheap, but that's how magnesium alloy feels like for the sake of lightness. i.e., it is by design! it is hard to get a 15" laptop, make it feel super sturdy, and have it weigh 2.5lbs unless you pay a lot more.

That's an illusion though. It's really strong plus crazy thin and light. How it feels is irrelevant, unless you get emotional about notebook computers.

I have the 17 inch that was on sales at Costco a month or so ago. Similar specs with no touch screen but with better resolution.

I use it for work and I do a lot of Software Developer and IT related tasks. I am the guy that has 2000 tabs open and 10 different applications and constantly switching between them all.

This machine takes it like a champ with 0 slow downs and never gets hot. I can be hitting the CPU for 70% for hours and never gets hot.

The screen quality is great and it does have a slightly cheap feel for sure, but its sturdy and very light. I don't get the feeling it will break or anything like that. It fits in my 15inch laptop case ( even though its 17inch) and the finger print reader is better than the face recognition on my Surface Laptop 2 machine.

So far I am extremely happy and my only regret is that I don't get to use my Microsoft pencil anymore. I never really used it much anyways, but a shame I don't have the option anymore. Was useful the few times I did need it.

I would highly recommend it. I generally buy Surface Laptops for my company but decided to give this a try for myself and I've been extremely happy so far.

It is true is 'feels' flimsy, but it is actually sturdy. It is a side effect of the material used to keep the machine light and not a reflection of actual build quality.

As far as being on my lap and feeling like it will fall off, I've never had that issue. I do have the 17 inch model, so not sure if that makes a difference or not.

The relatively flexible magnesium alloy case contributes to that feeling of "flimsiness". The lid/display is really flexy. It even feels like plastic. Although that may be perceived as being "cheap" to some people, it is actually beneficial to the robustness of the computer.

Just as modern cars have crumple zones to absorb energy in a crash, the flexible nature of the Gram's case absorbs impact energy. In other words, it bends instead of breaks. (And of course, it bends back into it's original shape after impact.) There are some impressive videos where they beat the living snot out of them, and they survive in instances that would absolutely destroy conventional laptops. As long as the flexibility does not affect it's day-to-day usefulness, then the only downside is in the perception.

Yeah, yeah… just don't drop your laptop – I get it. But sh*t happens.

Do you use touchpad or external mouse?
I tried to type on it, but touchpad was under right palm while typing.
