The S Pen on this laptop is probably the best digital stylus out there.  It has 4096 levels of pressure sensitivity and you can store the pen in the device, not something you see much of lately.   Good performance and a sharp 15-in FHD display make this a winner.  I like the fact that the 15-in version also has an AMD Radeon 540 GPU with 2GB of video memory.  Average battery life and mediocre speakers hold this back from being a AMDtech Editor’s Choice.
