Evaluation

This hybrid notebook/tablet computer can be used as a laptop and a tablet. The dual hinges allow the computer to flip and open 360 degrees and the thin lightweight body with Ultrabook looks natural either as a PC or a tablet. The keyboard that ends up on the back side when used as a tablet is designed so it does not operate when inadvertently pressed. By bringing harmony to the design and engineering, it provides a solution to hybrid computers that tend to be overly complex. The minimalistic design that eliminates distractive elements is also highly regarded.
