PROS

  • The Full HD display is gorgeous to look at.
  • Compared with its bigger brethren, the Horizon 2s is much more affordable.
  • It has some fun gaming features in table mode.

CONS

  • Battery life on the Horizon 2s is poor.
  • There is no SSD option, so you're relegated to using a slower, mechanical drive.
  • The useful charging stand does not come with the Horizon 2s, but it can be purchased separately for $40.

An SD card reader and a pair of USB 3.0 ports are the only I/O ports on the system, which, frankly, is not enough.
