  • Just what I was looking for
    Reviewed by DiscoSmiles - November 25, 2021

    I was looking for a laptop with a backlit keyboard to use when watching crappy tv shows with my wife. This works fantastic for web browsing and other general duties. The keyboard and overall construction of the laptop is really good. It looks very easy to open it up to add a bigger hard drive. The aluminum case makes it feel premium, the keyboard is great too. I was using a 6 year old laptop before and the screen on this laptop makes the old one look terrible. I guess the negatives would be that the drive space is small and no USB C charging. The software shipped was 1909, which is old but it will update to Windows 11. Other than that it perfect for me

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

  • Great value, build quality and a BACKLIT KEYBOARD!
    Reviewed by Flowfury - September 28, 2021

    What I like - A premium feel at a reasonable price - 3 stage backlit keyboard - 1920x1080 resolution - IPS panel making for great viewing angles - The i3 processor has just the right amount of power for opening/running multiple applications and tabs with minimal slowdown - A pleasant and tactile typing experience, can easily do long typing sessions with comfort What I don't like - 128gb storage but can be solved using flash drives Overall a solid laptop at this price range especially when it goes on sale For those on a budget I recommend checking this one out

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

  • Good Midrange Compact Lightweight
    Verified BuyerReviewed by JohnnyC - May 14, 2021

    PROs: Bought as deal of day for $349 5/7/2021 CPU 2.1 to 4.1 GHz Good screen color and resolution. Backlit keyboard has several intensity choices. CPU good, mid-ranged though, imo Lightweight easy transport. One USB-C, but 2 USB-2 As a backup for basic work good. Battery life acceptable 5-8. CONs: 128 SSD has only about 45 GB free to user. 8 GB ram shared with integrated graphics slower response time. Per manual, RAM ungradable to 32. Only one memory slot, DDR4 3200 16 GB at $95-135 not cost beneficial for me. This unit seems to be an international version. 2W speakers ' volume too low. Specs say Discrete graphics adapter model. (??)

  • Bad Hardware
    Reviewed by J - January 28, 2022

    I bought this laptop and had to get it exchanged twice before finally giving up and returning. The first time I bought it, it wouldn't download the updates so I had it exchanged. Then, the second laptop all of a sudden shut down in the middle of updating and then kept showing error messages saying I needed to restart. When I restarted, it showed the same message saying there's something wrong with the computer and it needs to restart. This cycle went on forever so I decided to exchange the laptop once again. The third laptop I bought was good for about a week until suddenly the CPU started making weird noises as if something was loose inside. I finally gave up on the laptop and returned it for another brand.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

  • Mid-level ultraportable at entry-level price
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Alex - May 22, 2021

    I think as a budget laptop, this is good. As a mid-tier level system, it blends the best of quality build (without it being single-aluminum casing or whatever sure) it’s not an apple product, but it was less than 4 bills on sale total with an ssd an intel 10th, more drive space would be cool like a 256, but that and things like entry to mid level quality materials with mid level guts and in-between (REALLY DECENT SCREEN I mean I see these ips and rather high resolution screens in 6-800 laptops) so there are a lot of wins here. It’s msi too, you’re not paying for branding.
