  • Nice and light
    Reviewed by Denis B. - November 17, 2021

    Not super perfect as I've noticed that at the start that the wifi was dropping when it shouldn't. But seems that was only temporary as everything settled down. I'm also not a fan of keyboards that light up. Now that everything seems to have settled down it seems great. Good speeds, Windows 11 doesn't use the hard drive like Windows 10 and not noisy. Battery life is amazing where I went almost a full day with low usage without plugging it in. Higher usage I still got many hours out of it before receiving a message that the battery was low. Overall. I'm very satisfied with this purchase and would highly recommend it.

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

  • As good as it gets for the money.
    Reviewed by Ross - January 16, 2022

    This is a solid value and you really cannot go wrong unless you are really computer illiterate. The fingerprint scanner works fine. Very powerful CPU and integrated graphics will allow you to play games like Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Horizon Zero Dawn and Assassins Creed Origins. Play them on medium to high settings. I do and its perfect. Both Ram and ssd are upgradeable. If this comes on sale, its a steal. Backlit keyboard, nice and quiet and great screen. Good sound. I know computers, and laptops, and i recommend this one, 6 stars, especially if you can get it on sale. 6 stars out of 5.

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

    Use it like a desk top with a 32" monitor. Fast start up with finger print. Can change to 80% charging to extend battery life. Can't go wrong when it is on sale.
