Bored af, waiting on a computer to be installed, so let's do a review of a 19 Mk6:

The good:

Holy SHIT the screen brightness! It could easily cause blindness if I stared into it for too long at max brightness!

Awesome battery life due to the i5 3320M CPU, SSD and LED backlight.

Convertible mode is awesome for reading exploded views.

With the X-strap, I can hang it in the shower on the support beam for the shower cabinet, allowing me to watch Twitch streams or listen to music while showering.

It doesn't mind water or drops at all!

Everyone wonders what the hell this thing is when they see it.

The HD4000 GPU runs games like Automation pretty good!

The bad:

Throttling. That's the achilles heel of the 19, it's passive cooling makes it run hot. A SSD makes a HUGE difference tho!

Low screen resolution makes it somewhat hard to read wide PDFs.

Parts are expensive and/or rare.

Some USB sticks don't like the USB port on the side. (too wide)

X-strap doesn't really like the dock, and vice versa.

All in all, certainly a device I would recommend to mechanics!
