Evaluation

The styling of the sheet metal's smooth curves is really gorgeous. One particularly creative and unique feature of the product's construction is the way that the sheet forming the top of the lid does not curve around and connect with the base. Instead, its design corresponds to the keyboard section and connects with the touchpad section. Going out of their way to preserve the product's external appearance by recessing the connector ports, the designers ensured that it transcends the conventional image of a mere notebook PC and enhances its value as an aesthetic object. We gave high marks to this sophisticated design approach, which aimed not just for thinness and lightness but also to the pursuit of an advanced, forward-looking image.
