Very fast and reliable. Looks well built if a bit too austere. Boots almost instantly, programs load almost instantly. Good battery life and has space for a 2.5" HDD or SSD since the 256GB drive is a M2 stick. There's also space for another stick of memory. The only problem I have with this laptop is the screen. It's Matte, which can be a plus or minus on your preference, but the colors are terribly washed out, the viewing angles are also terrible. I bought this as a gift for someone who doesn't much care about such things but if I were to have purchased this for myself, the poor screen would have been a deal breaker for me. It's a great laptop for a great price it's just such a shame the screen is so terrible. So if that's something you won't care about get this, if you do care about screens definitely be prepared for this to disappoint you, even if you prefer Matte screens.
I would recommend this to a friend
It was great while it lasted but quit in 8 months! We bought it as a gift for my teenager at Christmas and then it just quit working! We googled it and found out that it is common, Buyer beware
No, I would not recommend this to a friend
