A Great Steal
I noticed that there was a $300 off coupon for this laptop so I decided to buy it since my Acer laptop was performing badly though it was only a year old. This model may be several years old, but it is outperforming most laptops at a similar price point. The startup times are around 4 seconds and it is able to multitask really well. I bought the 16GB ram version and I inserted another 8GB which made this laptop run even better than before. I haven't tried gaming yet, but I think it'll be able to handle old games fairly well and some latest titles on low to medium settings. The build quality is fantastic and its really compact so it's great for portability. The only bad things I've seen so far on this laptop is that the battery really sucks and sometimes the two finger scroll function doesn't work. All in all, for $499, this is way better than most i3 or i5 10th gen laptops on sale right now.
