Technically a triple negative still makes a negative, but how about: a BIG NO NO: it's a deal breaker.
And it's still portable/mobile, but the market isn't that ahead in lowering weight of such standalone detachable screen size and its specs, also with counterbalance for laptop-mode. Emphasis on "screen size, detachable and rest of specs".
Other solutions is to lower screen weight, so the counterbalance is easy, but not a portrait-mode friendly because screen is then not detachable standalone tablet. The "yoga" designs are ideal as a laptop with additional flexibility, or for on the table mostly when folded, or even more total weight in the hands for portrait-mode, because not detachable.
And still other solutions have either a smaller tablet, or less sturdy, or no lapmode-counterbalance. If screen smaller, then less weight, then less counterbalance for laptop-mode. Lowering total wight noticably.
Maximum flexibility at that screen size/specs, at the cost of total carrying weight, not holding weight. Total carrying weight is optional, and is more temporary than usage time. If not, then a different product is better, with its downsides. Like no laptop-mode for sitting "anywhere" typing, or no portrait-mode for reading full pages "anywhere", or otherwise smaller screen.
The weight will go down with better material/design without becoming too expensive, happened all the time, but over time.
Any other solution out there right now, is either more limited in the ways the Hi13 is not, or considerably more expensive. Because that's the current market.
The adapter is clumsy though, a typical laptop charger design. I might need to figure out what to do in practice.
