    Great review. Seeing something like the flawed keyboard backlight on a high-end product that's marketed based on the quality of its design is completely disheartening. Even sadder are the plastic "gear" hinges, or the fact that the device cannot be comfortably used while on the lap.

    I find more and more that the "premium" 2-in-1 devices are worse than the "workstations". The T904 was branded as premium with its brushed aluminum and glass trackpad and IGZO display, but like the Porsche Design Book One, it died the death of a thousand cuts, full of small but significant flaws that detracted from its premium features. Then there are devices like the Surface Book and the Surface Laptop which are arguably even worse, despite their high-end premium branding.

    The only device that ever came close was the Vaio Z Canvas.

    Yeah, what’s wrong with the Surface Book besides its price? (And Microsoft’s unwillingness to sell the performance base as a standalone upgrade).
