What about on the Windows side what would be comparable?electric0ant wrote: ↑I just returned this laptop, I bought it when it had 15% off with SPC. (but no free galaxy buds)
just a few notes:
- This is an intel i5 SOC, it's only just marginally more powerful than the m3 on the surface go 2, and significantly less powerful on the current macbook air.
- It comes with a bi-lingual keyboard, no option for US layout. ke ytravel is also very shallow, This can be dealbreaker for some
- The keyboard backlight is very very dim, and there is no way of manually turning it on. While there is brightness control, the backlight itself will only come on when the room is nearly completely dark. Combined with low contrast between the letters and the keycap (thin off-white letters on a grey keycap) the visibility of the keys is pretty poor overall.
on the plus side, this laptop is SUPER light, about 900grams
TBH i think the macbook air back to school deal with free airpods is a better deal, MUCH better laptop pretty much in every aspect, except it is heavier than the galaxy book s. so unless you totally need windows, i think going with the mba is a better deal.

After my use I would be dubious that anyone would get even close to 15 hours. Even with the lid closed and in sleep mode it was still using up battery quite quickly. I don't think it even lasted a day with it in sleep mode.Bigboy16 wrote: ↑ The form factor is very compelling. That's what you really pay for. Otherwise you can get a $500 laptop with the same specs.
The LG is very comparable in terms of weight. However the Grams have crazy crazy battery life - like a 80WH battery for a 15in laptop while most competitors only go till 56WH.
I'm curious on how long the battery life is - is it over 15 hours?
