The most important thing for me is that it's perfectly balanced, feature-wise.
Very silent, screen is large enough, battery life is great, fairly open hardware set, repairable, perfect.
It has a great keyboard and no trackpad! With a fast SSD and the bigger battery for it, it gets me a whole day of research and writing. A true joy to use while traveling.
