    I bought this laptop 2 weeks ago. I like it! Re-starts fast. Keyboard is quiet when typing. Only thing I wish that this doesn't have is keyboard backlight. Also this has only 256GB space, not sure if I would need more in the coming years. But overall, yes I recommend. I'm satisfied! Let me also mention that there's a wifi drop when I started using this but I searched online and read that it has something to do with Windows 10 and this is a common problem. There are different suggestions of workaround, one worked for me, this - Disable all adapter power savings modes by selecting the lowest power management setting, which enables the maximum wireless network performance. (Search it in Google for more guide how to do it.)

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

    I got this to replace my older Acer. Which still runs after 2 years with just longer startup time. I looked for a long time to find a laptop with a generation 10 Intel processor. This was on sale and you can't get anything better without having to pay a few extra $100's. Perfect for just surfing web and watching videos. Nice and light. The only thing I noticed that's not as good as my old Acer is the fan will will kick on and is audible but lasts only a few minutes. The speaker is deeper sounding from my old Acer. I just have to get used to the cramped number pad and some different key positions.

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

    It's a really sleek design, quite thin, slightly heavier than some others, but makes up for that with its ability to run multiple programs at once, for its price range. Also it doesn't make too much noise and the fan is quiet. It doesn't get too hot either. It can run Minecraft at about 60 frames per second, maybe 80, so also Roblox I think.

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
