The is also lightweight at under 3 lbs (less than 1.35 kg.)

The size and weight of a laptop might not seem like the most important concern to some people. If your laptop never leaves your desk then it's probably not important. But a lot of people are increasingly taking their laptops with them, not just on business trips, but to work at a coffee shop, or meet up with a colleague for a meeting, or to do homework at a friend's house, or even just to a meeting in another building at your work location.

Portability is very important in these scenarios. I have used up far too much energy lugging a heavy laptop around with me!

      It is very nice, but I'm sure it's very expensive at the same time too!:(
