    Much better than I expected

    I got this on sale today (around $350) and I've been pleasantly surprised with it. It's thicker than I expected, but much lighter as well. It certainly has that "cheap" low end plastic laptop design, but there are things that help raise it above others like the slim bezels on the side of the display and a keyboard and trackpad combo that work quite well. After removing programs I didn't need I had almost 100 GB of storage available. The display, while having the standard low end resolution commonly found in cheaper laptops, didn't look as bad as I expected and didn't have too bad of a washed out feel you usually see. I've been surprised with how nicely the machine runs given the specs it has, but that's most likely due to running Windows 10 S. I have no need for full Windows on this device and have been able to get by with Edge and apps from the Windows Store, but I'd still recommend a PC with 8 GB of RAM if you want to multitask and use full Windows. 4 GB is cutting it close. The only time I noticed any terrible slowdown/lag was when playing videos and attempting to type documents. If you're expecting to watch Netflix or YouTube while doing other things, you'll be pushing this machine to its limits. This just isn't a good multitasking machine, but if you need something for basic everyday general use, then it's not too bad for the $350 sale price as long as you aren't expecting much. I am, however, returning the laptop since I also purchased the HP 14 Chromebook (on sale for $450) that will do the exact same things I purchased this laptop for. I figured I could save $100 and possibly get by using this PC, but the extra $100 for the Chromebook gets me a MUCH faster machine with a backlit keyboard, 1080p display, two USB-C ports, and an overall more premium device. I feel the extra $100 is worth it if you compare ChromeOS to Windows 10 S since I don't recommend this machine use full Windows Home.

    I was hesitant to purchase this first because it has the S mode of windows 10. After setting it up, though, I realized that Windows S made this piece faster and more reliable. Everything is fast. The aesthetic is slick too! I love how thin the bezel is. The downsides are the placement of some keys on keyboard. I am accustomed to pressing the far right to delete inputs but then the keys in the last column there are for navigation. So it takes a little time getting used to. Also the screen is not at par at today's standard: no ips and only HD resolution.

    Not a hi spec laptop but not bottom end. Easy to set up but the Microsoft software loaded makes it tricky to get Google chrome set up....you have to hunt for the right setting. Within weeks it started running slow....should have spent a bit more I suspect but it is what it is as a laptop

    This was a decent computer for the price, but you still get what you pay for.
