I must admit that I personally like the Carbon. After all, I write for a living, so a great keyboard wins me over. But I have a hard time figuring out a reason why I would recommend it over the HP Envy 14 Spectre or Zenbook Prime. Neither is as suitable for travelers, but truth be told, the Carbon is also a poor choice. A serious traveler should buy a T430s or X230 and deal with the added weight. That leaves consumers, who will prefer the Envy 14 Spectres better display and far more attractive exterior. And while the keyboard is not as good, its not bad either."
