      Answer

      I think it's a personal preference. I love my MacBook but my daughter insists on a PC. Many of the documents that are sent to students in high school and college are in Word or excel which is compatible to pages to some extent but not completely. I'm sure there are programs you could purchase to help with the conversions. I think you also have to consider what you are going to be doing in school. My niece is taking digital art in college and purchased a really nice PC and a very expensive program for a course, then learned she could have downloaded a very inexpensive app through apple and completed the project both quicker and easier on an iPad.

      Its an APU, which with it being an A12, means it has 4 cpu cores(quadcore) and 8 gpu cores. You wont find anything stronger at this price.

          Is the open-box option the 7th gen (i7-7500u), or is it still the 6th gen (i7-6500u)? These are relatively new, so I want to make sure that they're actually the new version as the open box. Thanks   (1 Answer)

            Best Buy would not sell you something that you did not purchase. What I mean is that if you put this model in your chart and purchase it this is the model that you will get.

                I'm not sure I fully understand your question. If you're asking if it is a gaming machine the short answer is no. It does not have a dedicated graphics card. It would be equivalent to a Surface Pro or a MacBook. You can make it into a gaming machine by purchasing their product called a Core and a graphics card. An easier thing would be to purchase the 14 inch model that they sell the "Raezer Blade"

                What's the battery life? I noticed it's conveniently absent. Doesn't the 4K display use more battery power than the lower resolution model?   (2 Answers)

                • Answer

                  They higher resolution definitely leads to lower battery life, there's a lot of ways you can play with the settings to adjust that but for the most part its 4-6 hours (lower for sure compared to other ultrabooks, but the screen is gorgeous). However, these Razer Blade Stealth's have a hardware issue with the battery where they sometimes die after they run down and will not come back up. Google "Razer Blade battery won't charge" and you'll see TON's of posts on this issue.
