At a Glance

The pretty red color and solid build are not enough to make up for the x360's chunky form factor, lackluster display, and poor battery life.

Price when rated: $410


  • Good keyboard
  • Lots of ports
  • Hybrid drive (an available option)


  • Thick and heavy for an 11-inch laptop
  • Too-short battery life
  • Poor off-axis viewing
