Using the P34W v5 – Everyday Musings
The size is a real positive here with the P34W v5. It's slim and comfortable to use on your lap when you need to get work done. The keyboard is more comfortable to type on than you might think, too. The slightly (only very) mushy keys make a good impression of a mechanical keyboard. There's a certain amount of slack and an actuation point that's easy to predict each time. Whether that's by design, or not, I don't know, but the effect is pleasing to type on. Using it every day is a treat. It does what it's supposed to and when you ask it. The battery life isn't exactly mind-blowing, but it's enough endurance to let you get through a normal work day without having to be tethered to the wall.
That size again is what makes it a more useful laptop in everyday life. Too thin and it's weird on your lap, too big and it starts getting uncomfortable. Here it's almost a perfect blend though you're greeted with the slightly annoying sounds of tiny fans that are (efficiently, however) moving heat away from those precious parts are onto your lap.
It gets hot when in actual use, but at least that hot air means that the components are being cooled efficiently. The cooling system they've designed here can move a lot of heat very quickly, but it all ends up on you, which is great when it's cold outside but quickly becomes pretty terrible. The exhaust is located on the back, which doesn't pose any problems.
