This device is one of the most gorgeous devices I’ve seen. Not only does it look good, it feels like a million bucks (it actually does cost a lot though). The sliding mechanism is the smoothest and most solid mechanism to date and actually tilts the screen slightly towards you. It works, and it works well. There’s absolutely no give to the device due to its brushed aluminum components. Heck, the battery door is fully aluminum, the base of the keyboard is aluminum, even the keys feel aluminum (we’re not sure they actually are though).
