A:AnswerI can confirm that this is using the GDDR6 version of the MX450, however it is the low power variant of 12 watts. It's also strange, because the ASUS website lists this model as the GDDR5 version, but it's clearly wrong. Check attachments below.
You can set the laptop to "Performance" mode to enable the MX450 to boost to 25W using myAsus (software included). However, the GPU will not sustain a full boost clock and will fluctuate. The power adapter must be plugged in for performance mode to work.
A:AnswerYes the keyboard is backlit. I dont know what your use for this laptop would be so just a few things to be aware of. The screen is not extremely bright and can have a pretty bad glare so outdoor use or working with a window behind you can be a little weak, however viewing angles are very good and color is quite pleasing for a cheaper panel. If you plan on doing any heavy gaming or video editing this would probabaly not be the laptop for you. The graphics chip is not very powerful and the memory is soldered to the board and cannot be upgraded.
Overall for web browsing streaming office/school work some light video or photo editing it's a pretty solid machine for the price. nice rigid construction very lightweight and good battery life. Sorry for the long bloated answer to a simple question. I feel like anyone about to drop $700 deserves more info then the dopes at geek squad will give you
