1   +   6   =  

I would pay more for the 8GB/128GB version for two reasons. First, 8GB gives it the headroom to run more programs.

Second, the 128GB SSD is hugely faster than the 64GB eMMC. Given that we used about 25-30GB before downloading the music or video library the larger storage makes sense. Although with 64GB of microSD card costing under $20 well it may be attractive – $599 versus $839 – plus keyboard and Pen (if you need it).

We rated is 4.2 out of 5 and while I don’t see the need to change that let’s revisit the strengths

  • Small, light, thin and has a kickstand for desktop or lap use
  • Genuine full-fat Windows if you turf Windows 10S
  • Great screen
  • Does all a typical user needs (not for gamers or i7 users)
  • Great battery life and USB-C means you can use a USB-C Power Bank to charge it as well

Are there any downsides?

No if you know what you are buying and its limitations. It would have been perfect with one extra USB-C or USB-A port.
