I use it as a laptop more than as a slate, but fortunately, it works very nicely as both. The only real downside I’ve found so far is that it is a bit on the heavy side for using as a slate. If you really want to be comfortable sitting reading in bed with a slate-form tablet, you might be better off with the tiny HP models where the keyboard can be completely removed.
