So why would ANYONE in their right mind pay at leas 1500$ for a laptop that offers absolutely nothing in return for your investment?
I mean it would become handy in case you travel a lot and you are limited in terms of carry-on weight, but that is an extremely isolated case.
Yes, it looks great and it has the laptop-tablet convertible gimmic, but that is it.
 Up to 12 hours of video playback. Testing conducted by Microsoft in September 2015 using preproduction Intel® CoreĀ i5, 256GB, 8 GB RAM device. Testing consisted of full battery discharge during video playback. All settings were default except: Wi-Fi was associated with a network and Auto-Brightness disabled. Battery life varies significantly with settings, usage, and other factors.
It's more expensive than laptop competitors. It also needs track point to gain ex ThinkPad users.
This is amazing. But my Surface Pro 3 is still working great so I won't be upgrading to this.
JD, 06 Oct 2015those 12 hours is actually 12 hours of video playback at 50% of brightness!! learn to read the... moreMost movies are around 2 hours so at 5-6 movies on a MACBOOK PRO that about 10-12 hours of play and 50% brightness, this seem to be on par with that.
Srb Srb, 06 Oct 2015Yes but now with Windows 10 being free i think Microsoft can catch up,free for first year, and free who upgrade from 7 or 8. If u want get win 10 itself, u have to buy it.. Next year ,who upgrade from 7 or 8 also need to buy the license

I could easy watch 5-6 movies on my macbook pro 2015 at 50% brightness!
Again, Microsoft apart from sky high prices is coming up with stupid claims
The funny thing is, I'm running both OSes (Win 10 and OSX) on my Mac and i paid for my Mac much less than some people will pay for this overpriced "Lenevo Yoga 3 Pro Copy wannabee"
Microsoft will never learn

The only problem is mac is wayy more finished .. than windows . Battery life on macbook air just rocks . 9-10 hours with moderate usage . Windows ? I doubt would get that kinda battery life along with balanced power . Thats said , it cannot be achieved with unoptimized OS . Mac has done far commendable job in terms of OS optimization than windows .
I don't know how they pulled it off. This is the perfect laptop (depending on screen size)
Great screen, great battery life
It's like 2 opposite things in one, I freaking love, I can't really afford it, but I still feel the price is somewhat justified
More expensive than a MacBook. I thought Apple were the greedy ones!
Srb Srb, 06 Oct 2015Calm down, the pc industry shrink a lot in the last 2-3 years while Mac grow. Still users tha... moreBut the only touch enabled Apple products are the iPhone, iPod/iPads. I can't use USB on those. They are not powerful enough. As a media player, yes! But for productivity, NO!
