How we test

Design and use (35%) includes status lights/indicators, connections, laptop design, general use as a laptop, overall style and mobility as well as evaluating its security, manual and recovery options (if provided). For hybrids we also test laptop-to-tablet conversion and general use as a tablet. We also assess the audio quality of the speaker.
