Let’s review my new laptop. 🙂
- It features Intel’s latest generation Central Processing Unit: Haswell
- A nowadays basic amount of ram: 8GB
- An awesome M.2 PCIe-based Solid State Disk (not really a disk any more, but more fancy PCB)
- A a 1080p IPS display
- And a pretty good battery as well!
- An optional Trusted Platform Module (jej bitlocker!)
So, the first thing you notice when you hold it, it sooooo incredible light (<1kg!)! :-d
Even when you ever held a MacBook Air, you would be stunned. And that’s just awesome ❤
The carbon feels not that strong, but I’m always pretty careful with my tech 🙂
But I can imagine people could actually break the device…
The Hasswell I7 4500u (1.8GHz – 3.0GHZ, running at 0,677 volts and using between 0,93 and 8,78 watts of power), is just awesome. On high performance it’s actually really fast, on battery saver it’s really slow. 🙂
8GB of RAM is perfect! You can run multiple VM’s (of course using Hyper-V) simultaneously without any stuttering.
The touchpad performs great as well, it’s plastic (not glass like on Apple devices), so it’s not always that great.
Battery, runs around 7-8 hours. Which is pretty good! 😀
The presence of a Trusted Platform Module makes that bitlocker works fine 🙂
I’m currently using Windows 8.1 Enterprise x64 on it, it feels just incredibly fast, and that how I like it!
The only thing I’m actually missing, is an Ethernet port… I wouldn’t use it often, but sometimes, it’s just that little bit easier to get into a foreign network =)
So I ordered one on DX.com 🙂
