In fact, this is not exaggerated thickness (17.89 mm), but bear in mind that in the previous model thickness was 16 mm. Also the weight increases, and happens to be of 2 kg instead of the 1.8 kg of the previous model.
Where if we win it is in the width of the product which is 2 cm lower through the use of frames especially thin screen (4.65 mm) on the sides. It does not get to be like the “Infinity Display” screens of the Dell XPS 13, but it certainly helps to compensate in those dimensions.
