Good, I guess. We need more competition for things like the LG Gram and Acer Travelmate P-series.

People at work have been demanding Surface Pros which are underpowered, overpriced, completely non-serviceable, non-repairable, have pretty dated connectivity, and more importantly - have poor reliability and toughness ratings IME. I buy them only if pressured from above and "I told you so" is usually rolled out within a couple of years when they fail due to manufacturing defect or a small bump that most other laptops would have survived.

Nothing concrete, only "less than 1kg".

Yeah, under 1kg is pretty light and the competition from Acer and LG is in the 950g range so we can assume it'll weigh about the same.

If it weighed less than a surface pro (775g), they'd brag about it - and the surface cheats anyway because it's just a tablet and weighs 1070g if you add the (mandatory, IMO) keyboard cover.

Nice, 2560 x 1600, perfect laptop res, no need for 4K IMO even at 17". And more glorious 16:10 screens.
