Most apt the crushed for its lightweight is owed to Samsung removing the other furniture of solid from the screen, which decidedly makes it a spot much responsive than astir different touchscreens. The keyboard felt luxurious and we truly appreciated however ample and responsive the touchpad was.

Port enactment is beauteous coagulated with an HDMI port, 2 Thunderbolt 4 ports, a Type-A USB port, an audio jack, and a mini SDcard slot.
