    "Great for my son...Very easy to use...Great for students...I got the Chromebook during a sale for $159, but it's normally closer to $199; if its regular price was ~$159, I'd give it 5 stars, but for $200... I'd rather Samsung had put a bit more quality into the screen and charged $220 or $230, OR price this laptop no higher than $179 as a truly "budget" laptop"

    "- Price is right...Great Specs 2...Extremely light and portable, great for students who like to game on the side....What eventually pushed me to decide on this laptop compared to the Surface and other similar gaming laptops was the powerhouse performance in a slim body at a reasonable cost (for a gaming laptop of course) PROS: -The Intel-i7 8750H is a phenomenal processor with excellent performance across browsing, gaming, programming, and more"
