Top customer reviews

For the price I paid, this laptop can't be beat. I applied for an Amazon Store Card while purchasing, which gave me a $40 instant credit, further knocking down the price.

This laptop is small and thin for a 15.6" screen (fits in my 14" laptop sleeve), very light (only 3.7 lbs), and fast (8th gen i5 and 8 GB RAM). As others have said, the only downside is the slow 5400 RPM 1 TB hard drive. As far as that goes, I have a trick to get around it if you're planning to install an SSD. Alternatively, I also have advice if you're planning to stick with the included hard drive. Here it goes.

If you're planning to upgrade to an SSD drive and already have the SSD drive in hand, then do this to avoid the slow hard drive headaches:
1. Boot up the new laptop for the 1st time.
2. While activating Windows, DO NOT connect to your WiFi.
3. After Windows fully starts up, install disk cloning software (Macrium Reflect, Acronis, etc.) from a USB flash drive. You can't download the disk cloning software because you are not connected to WiFi.
4. Shut down the laptop, open it up, and install your SSD drive.
5. Turn on the laptop again. Use the disk cloning software to clone the hard drive onto your SSD drive.
6. Turn off the laptop. At this point you have a choice. You can either boot into the BIOS to set your new SSD drive as the default boot drive while keeping the old hard drive installed, or you can just remove the old hard drive to force the laptop to boot off the new SSD.
7. Turn on the laptop and admire how awesomely fast it starts up from the lightning quick SSD! :-)
8. Now you can finally connect to your WiFi network and let Windows download and install all it's updates and security patches.

The reason I recommend doing this is because you don't want to let Windows try to download and install hundreds of MB's of updates and patches while running off the dog slow 1 TB hard drive. That would take a very long, long time. And the slow hard drive will be at 100% disk utilization for hours or days while it's trying to download and install all these Windows updates. As other people have said, the laptop will seem to freeze and be unresponsive during this time. But by upgrading to an SSD drive BEFORE letting the laptop download and install Windows updates, the fast SSD will make this process go A LOT FASTER.

And my tip for those people who don't plan to install an SSD drive and just keep using the included 1 TB hard drive:
1. After booting up the laptop for the 1st time, activate Windows, and connect to your WiFi.
2. Then leave the laptop on for a day or two and don't try to use it. Why? Because people have said it can take up to 2 days for the laptop to download and install all the Windows updates. Trying to use it during this time, with the hard drive utilization pegged at 100%, would be a exercise in frustration.
3. Then finally, after all the Windows updates have been downloaded and installed, reboot the laptop and use it as you wish. The laptop should be fairly speedy now after the initial slowness from the updates. Enjoy!
