    My First Macbook and a great one

    My entry to Apple’s ecosystem started with an iphone , which motivated me to buy a mac just to get a feel of it.

    However after I purchased this mac, I love how powerful this macbook is. The sound is crisp and the screen is crystal clear.This is a treat to my senses. I develop applications in Java and my apps compile at lightning speed making the overall dev process faster.

    Great upgrade for a laptop!

    I previously owned a 2017 MacBook Air which wasn’t a bad choice but for what I’m doing now the 2020 MacBook Pro has easy, cool new features I wasn’t used to. I now have the memory/storage for all of my Creative Cloud programs and photos from Photography. I just started Drafting and AutoCAD for Mac runs pretty good in my opinion. The processor is faster and definitely keeps up!

    Artist

    I was a first grader when it came to anything tech and was afraid to buy a laptop for that reason. As an Art Instructor, during COVID, unique teaching methods had to be considered and used and I had to get into the modern way of doing things. The salespeople and Geek Squad made it so easy for me, and are so welcoming and attentive to my need that, in just a few short weeks, I now feel like a fourth grader in the tech department!!! Thank you!

    The 2014 Mac Air VS the New Mac Air

    I own two Mac Airs. One from 2014 and this one. I would like to compare the two because I feel there are some features on the older version that are more desirable.

    1. The Battery

    The new Mac battery lasts forever and charges quickly with a USB-C port. I favor the older magnetic charger but that's a small thing.

    2. Display

    The new display is very clear however, the screen extends to the very edge of the device similar to the iPhone. So if you drop this device you're screwed. I dropped my 2014 and it dented the edge of the screen but didn't break the glass because of the extra aluminum edge. I don't think the new Mac screen would survive this.

    3. The web cam

    The 2014 is very dark for some reason. The new Mac seems to have fixed this issue with a nice and clear video.

    4. USB ports

    The 2014 has 2 USB-A ports, a lighting connection port, phone jack and an SDXC card slot

    The new Mac only has two USB-C ports and a headphone jack! so you need a number of adapters to connect anything which is quite annoying especially since my wireless mouse uses an old USB-A. Apple only sells limited adapters so you need to buy PC adapters which I'm not crazy about. However I have a dual USB-A adapter from Dell that works great

    5. The Chip

    The M1 chip is lighting fast. Even though my 2014 has an 1.4 Ghz dual core I5, it doesn't compare.

    6. The famous logo

    It's another little thing but, I liked the illuminated apple logo on the back of the 2014. Maybe its no longer there to extend battery life? Idk but I thought it was a nice feature that separated apple from the rest.

    Read BEFORE purchasing “Open box” condition!

    I bought this online in “Open box” condition meaning the display model. It was described as being on excellent condition and all in all I ended up paying around $970 for it after taxes and fees. When I first received the laptop I was immediately in awe of its beauty (I bought the rose gold version) However upon trying to set up the laptop and gain access into it I ran into a bunch of issues which required me to contact Apple support. Best Buy had not done a software reset on the laptop before shipping it to me which resulted in me not being able to log in or set up my password. It was only after 2 days of receiving it that Apple finally pin pointed the issue and was able to walk me through doing a complete reset thereby allowing me to finally gain access into my laptop! Ever since then I’ve been in love with it! My only small complaint would be that I have to buy an adapter now to be able to connect my phone to it, other than that this was a great buy!

    Macbook Gal

    I've purchased this model of the MacBook; the day after Christmas. When I bought it, I fell in love with it. I bought the Gold Color; which I thought was cute. Although the MacBook came with the 256GB which I thought was enough. I bought this MacBook for online school, it is so flawless. I love the quietness, no viruses and the compatibility. It is very fast. This is my first MacBook and I will keep it forever.

    My one and only daily driver for everything

    I have been using this laptop as my daily driver ever since the day I purchased it. It has never overheated. The most it ever gets is a bit warm after having 10+ windows and applications open in the background. The feeling of the laptop is therapeutic and feels amazing, but I recommend having some form of protection because it does feel like one drop from a decent height can be fatal. The display is great. The sound is from the speakers are actually more than decent. Overall, this MacBook Air has been amazing. Highly recommend!

    Speedy new me!

    Replaced my 10-year-old MacBook Air & I am so happy. The new one has many improvements, for example in the grammar & spelling corrections. Speed is greatly improved. Unfortunately the USB port is different so I had to buy an adapter to look at any old flash drives. Not sure why they did that, but since it’s Apple, I’m sure there was a good reason.

    Look no further....THIS IS IT!!

    Absolutely FANTASTIC! I love the size and weight of this MacBook. The keyboard and trackpad are awesome!! It all works and performs as you would expect from a premium computer. I bought a Incase Icon sleeve to store in when not in use. That is a must have accessory to have to protect computer. This was my second MacBook Air purchase. I purchased first one from Apple directly. I liked mine so much I bought the girlfriend this one for her birthday from Best Buy. She's in love with it as well. Thank you Apple and Best Buy!

    Compact Powerhouse, Faster Than Gaming Laptops!

    This newly updated Microsoft Surface 4 laptop is a superb combination of technology and functionality which will outperform almost all existing laptops thanks to its incorporation of a new 8 core AMD Ryzen 7 processor with integrated Radeon RX Vega 8 graphic processing unit in a very compact form. Visually, the Surface 4 is an elegant, minimalist design with a very slim, beautiful matt black brushed aluminum body. The excellent full-size keyboard has white backlighting. The 15.1” touch screen seems larger because it incorporates a classic 6:4 format. The solid-state hard drive and low power needs of the LED display, CPU and GPU make possible up to 17.5 hours of silent operation. The audio quality of the Omnisonic speakers with Dolby Atmos sound processing is amazing. Overall, the impression is very sophisticated and high tech.

    Microsoft introduced the Surface product line in 2012 as a Windows tablet. It was the company’s first product which incorporated the Windows operating system and their own hardware. The first products ran tablet-only Windows RT. The early models were somewhat under-powered with limited storage and poor battery life. The next generation added a supplemental keyboard and more processing power, becoming 2-in-1 tablet/laptops. In 2015 the Surface 3 models were the first to run the full Windows operating system and standard programs. That Surface 3 lineup included the first true laptop. But not until the latest version, the Surface 4, did the product finally achieve parity in power and functionality with competitive laptops by incorporating bigger displays, very fast microprocessors, large SSD storage and superior battery life.

    Consider this outstanding combination of features:

    • Microsoft Surface 4 Laptop (Model 5W6-00024)

    • AMD Ryzen 7 4980U CPU 8 core/16 thread, 15w max power load

    • 8 core/16 hyper-thread processor runs at speeds from 2.0 to 4.4 GHz

    • 64 bit Windows 10 Home 20H2 operating system

    • Integrated AMD Radeon RX Vega 8 GPU uses shared system memory

    • 8 GB DDR4 high efficiency RAM primary memory

    • 512 GB SK-Hynix SSD fast hard drive

    • 15.1” IPS LED-backlit PixelSense touch-screen display with 2496 x 1664 (201 PPI) resolution

    • Windows ink workspace/Surface Pen support

    • Omnisonic full-range stereo speakers and Dolby Atmos audio processing

    • 720 HD f2.0 Webcam with dual far field microphones

    • 3D IR Camera for Windows Hello facial and gesture recognition

    • Intel AX200 wireless LAN 802.11a/b/g/n/ac/ax (WiFi 6 support), WPA3 security

    • Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity

    • USB-C video output

    • 1 USB 3.1 Type C (up to 5 GBps)

    • 1 USB 3.0 Type A

    • 40 pin Surface Connect port for charging and accessory connections

    • Headphone out/Microphone in 3.5 mm port

    • 45.82 Watt-Hour Lithium Ion battery – 17.5 hour operating life

    • 65 watt/15.0 volt/4.0 amp charging unit with USB Type A 5.0 volt/1.0 amp charging port and 101” cord length

    • Very slim and compact: 13.4” wide x 9.6” deep x 0.6” thick

    • Lightweight: only 3.4 pounds

    • One year warranty on parts and labor

    So how does this laptop perform? Flawlessly!

    It seemed very fast when I was using it, so I ran two well-regarded benchmark programs (Novabench and PC Mark 10) on both it and four of my other computers to determine their relative performance. These tests measure both CPU (general processing) and GPU (graphics processing) so they give a good overall measure of a computer’s speed. The first was a base model office desktop with an AMD A6 (A6-7310) CPU (comparable in speed to an Intel i3 CPU), no separate GPU and 8 GB RAM. The next was a nicely-equipped all-in-one computer with a 6th generation Intel i5 (6400T), Intel 530 GPU and 12 GB RAM. The third was a 2018-era gaming laptop with an 8th generation Intel i5 (8300H), Nvidia 1050Ti GPU and 8 GB RAM. The fourth was a 2019-era two-in-one laptop/tablet with AMD’s Ryzen 5 and Radeon Vega 8 GPU and 8 GB RAM. Finally, I ran the same tests on the Microsoft Surface 4 laptop. All computers were well-maintained, running identical Windows 10 versions with no other programs active. Here are the results (higher is faster):

    Novabench Results:

    Office desktop (AMD A6, 8 GB ram): 636 (Base case)

    All-in-One (i5-6400, 12 GB ram): 858 (35% faster than base)

    Gaming laptop (i5-8300H, 8 GB ram)): 2028 (219% faster than base)

    Two-in-One tablet/laptop (AMD Ryzen 5 3500U, 8 GB ram): 1425 (124% faster than base)

    Microsoft Surface 4 (AMD Ryzen 7 4980U, 8 GB ram): 2981 (369% faster than base)

    PC Mark 10 Results:

    Office desktop (AMD A6, 8 GB ram): 1451 (Base case)

    All-in-One (i5-6400, 12 GB ram): 2300 (59% faster than base)

    Gaming laptop (i5-8300H, 8 GB ram)): 4603 (217% faster than base)

    Two-in-One tablet/laptop (AMD Ryzen 5 3500U, 8 GB ram): 3698 (155% faster than base)

    Microsoft Surface 4 (AMD Ryzen 7 4980U, 8 GB ram): 5096 (251% faster than base)

    OK, that’s a lot of numbers and technical jargon but the bottom line is that you will find this slim Surface 4 capable of out-performing anything you currently own (unless you have a really geeked-out special system) and very smooth in running any games or software you may ever buy. Put this elegant notebook to work on most business software and it will never even break a sweat. Use it for photo or video editing and it will calmly do whatever you want, no drama. And you need not hesitate to fire up a graphics-intensive game because it has the power to handle even that chore easily. It is certainly faster than most dedicated gaming laptops made prior to 2020!

    The Omnisonic speakers and Atmos sound system on this laptop are surprisingly good. I listened to some of my favorite albums from Spotify and the speakers (although tiny) were much better than typical for laptops. They are mounted at the hinge, have decent volume and good stereo separation – certainly good enough for watching Netflix or YouTube videos.

    A major plus for this Surface 4 device is the outstanding battery life. I always test laptops by streaming Netflix series on battery power with a bright screen and high speaker volume. The combination of modem usage, video rendering, screen lighting and speaker volume usually drains most laptop batteries in less than two hours. But this Microsoft lasted almost twelve hours before exhausting the charge! That is long enough for five full movies and certainly would suffice a traveler for even the longest international flights. You can thank the ultra-efficient and power-miser AMD CPU and GPU for that amazing performance.

    Another advantage for travelers is the compact size (less than 14” wide and 0.6” thick) and very light weight – about 3.4 pounds. The power cube is small (about 3” x 2” x 1”) so it won’t take up much precious space or weight in your briefcase/backpack. The notebook is nicely balanced with a great lighted keyboard and big touchpad, so those who like to literally use their laptop on their lap will be pleased. The Intel wireless LAN is compatible with the latest WiFi 6 standard and provides excellent, high speed connection to your network. Similarly, the Bluetooth 5.0 gave a stable connection at up to 35 feet. The 3.5 mm audio port is convenient if you like to use wired headsets or earbuds.

    The 15.1” touchscreen display has superb resolution, high speed video rendering and HDR content support with very good color saturation. The 6:4 screen ratio is taller than the 16:9 or 16:10 ratios seen on many laptops and actually offers considerably more screen area (about 19% more) than the 16:9 screens. This is an advantage when working with Word documents or spreadsheets. It also supports the Surface Pen for graphic editing, although I don’t think that a laptop is the best vehicle for that function.

    The Microsoft Hello facial recognition and Cortana both work well, as does the webcam and built-in microphones. I suggest that you turn off the setting which requires entering a password when waking from sleep (but I suggest that change for all Windows PCs!)

    What are the possible weak points or purchase issues to consider?

    • I would have preferred at least two Type A and two Type C USB ports. I prefer to use a mouse rather than a trackpad and often need to use a flash drive so having only one USB port is an issue. (I solved it by buying a very nice Microsoft Bluetooth mouse from Best Buy for just $15. See photo.)

    • While the keyboard is excellent, it does not have a separate numeric keypad. However, that would have required a somewhat wider unit or reducing the size of the other key, so its absence is understandable.

    • It would have been nice to have a form-fitting cloth carrying case included (as many other notebook brands provide.)

    • When you set up your new Surface 4 laptop you will need to download some software (e.g., Open GL, Dolby Atmos) and update the drivers. There are several free software suites which will take care of those tasks for you.

    • Some might feel that the 8 GB of RAM and 512 GB SSD could be larger but the performance results I noted above show that the RAM is adequate. The hard drive is big enough for most purposes and can be supplemented by an external hard drive plugged into the USB Type C port.

    • The optional Intel 11th generation Core i7 microprocessor allows a larger RAM and SSD configuration and may be a bit faster but at a considerably larger cost and much less battery life.

    But these are really just minor quibbles. When you consider all of its power and functionality you will agree that the price is very reasonable. I can enthusiastically recommend the new Microsoft Surface 4 laptop for both serious stay-at-home power users and for those who need a perfect travel companion.

    Premium Laptop, Strong Performance, Great Battery

    /////////// First Impressions and Features ///////////

    The Microsoft Surface Laptop 4 15” is definitely a premium laptop. It is one of the rare laptops where its hardware and software come from under the same roof. It shares the look and feel of its predecessor, and I have no issues with that at all. This is my first Surface Laptop (I currently own a Surface Pro 3, still kicking!). It is equipped with a Ryzen 7 8 core/16 thread APU, 512GB SSD and 8GB DDR4 RAM. The unit feels premium and sturdy, the hinge that holds the screen upright is very strong, and the backlit keyboard is probably one of the best keyboards I’ve ever typed on in a portable laptop. The cool metal feels smooth on your palms as you type and the touchpad registers all single and multi-touch gestures without a hitch. The panel is a touchscreen and I feel that it won’t be utilized very much, but it does become very handy when you need it. Trying to buy that elusive gpu online before everyone else? With a touchscreen, you are now the fastest ‘add-to-cart’ online shopper this side of the Mississippi!

    Contrary to what most others say about the thick bezels, I actually appreciate them. Where else are you going to hold the screen to open it up or make tilt adjustments without touching the panel itself? It’s one of those things that we take for granted as we prioritize looks over functionality. Ok, maybe they can be shrunk down a tad...but it doesn't bother me. One of the most satisfying aspects of the Surface Book is the display’s 3:2 aspect ratio, with a resolution of 2496x1664. From a general use and productivity standpoint, the vertical real estate gained allows the natural viewing of websites, documents and the like. Think about it. Most physical documents are printed in portrait, so there is a welcoming familiarity once you begin using the laptop. It is most definitely refreshing.

    The I/O is sparse on the laptop, having only a single USB-C, USB-A and a 3.5mm headphone jack. The only other means of connectivity is the Microsoft proprietary charge port that can also double as an I/O port with their proprietary dock. The limited amount of I/O helps keep the laptop thin, as evident in other laptops designed today, and the only way to expand I/O is to purchase a separate docking station or USB hub. The USB-C can also double as a charge port as well if you have a means of charging it that way. I own a monitor with a USB-C connection that acts as both a 65W charger and hub. This is a perfect complement to the Surface Laptop 4.

    /////////// Processing Performance ///////////

    A big omission is the use of the newest Ryzen 5000 Series mobile processors for this latest generation of Surface Laptop. This is an automatic star deduction in my book. Microsoft pinned the last generation’s Ryzen with the latest silicon to come from Intel. That being said, the Ryzen 7 4000 Surface Edition mobile processor is still a great everyday mobile APU. It is an 8 core/16 thread 7nm that should satisfy most users and their processing needs. The CPU core speeds will behave differently on battery versus when plugged in, and I’ve provided a table of the tests I ran for each power mode using Cinebench R23:

    <<- On Battery, 4 Modes ->>

    Battery Saver (Single 2GHz, Multi 1.4GHz)

    Recommended (Single 2GHz, Multi 1.6GHz)

    Better Performance (Single 2.9GHz, Multi 2.4GHz)

    Best Performance (Single 4.2GHz, Multi 2.9GHz)

    <<- Plugged In, 3 Modes ->>

    Recommended (Single 3.95GHz, Multi 2.5GHz)

    Better Performance (Single 4.3GHz, Multi 2.4GHz) (dipped as low as 1.5GHz in Multi, thermal throttling?)

    Best Performance (Single 4.3GHz, Multi 2.7GHz) (dipped as low as 1.3GHz in Multi, thermal throttling?)

    A couple of things to note. Maybe I’m stating the obvious here, but if you’re looking for top performance out of this laptop, you’re going to have to plug it in. When plugged in, the base single core speeds are increased almost by 100%. The laptop does not need to worry about battery conservation and can allow the cores to run full blast. The other thing I noticed is that when plugged in and running multi-core tests, the speeds start off strong but begin to taper off. I took note of the temps during testing and the core temps held under 70 degrees C, so I don’t know if it’s thermally throttling or something else relating to its TDP. When running off the battery, the speeds and performance are expected; the APU is intentionally limited to conserve battery. Still at Best Performance, you can squeeze out a single core speed of about 4GHz, which is impressive.

    /////////// Graphics Performance ///////////

    The Ryzen 7 Mobile is baked in with Radeon graphics. The graphics had no trouble running games like Roblox. I had my daughter give it a test run (she plays on my desktop PC with a dedicated GPU, for reference) and she gave it two thumbs up. I know, Roblox isn’t a demanding game, but it’s nice to know she can Roblox on-the-go on a PC rather than on a smartphone. So I took it to the other extreme and installed Shadow of the Tomb Raider for another test run. Running the in-game benchmark tool, I was able to squeeze out 13fps. This is with all graphics settings set to the lowest setting. During the benchmark, the APU shot up 91 degrees C! Terrifying. For my last test, I decided on a middle ground with Halo MCC. This was actually playable! Frame rates were around 30-40fps and the APU temps were hovering around 67 degrees C. Not bad at all. I had the laptop plugged in while gaming and did notice that the laptop became warm to the touch with the fans quietly spooled up, but nothing to be alarmed about.

    /////////// Battery Performance ///////////

    Ultimately if you decide to go with the Ryzen APU, you reap the benefits of the 7nm process which equates to lower power consumption and ultimately longer run times. This will be evident as you begin to configure your Laptop 4 with either Intel or AMD. If you go Intel, your battery times are reduced by as much as two hours. Intel Tiger Lake uses a 10nm process on their mobile chips which results in more power use. The Intel chips are fast in both processing and integrated graphics and may have advances in their silicon process, but you lose out in runtime. And it costs more, too. From the standpoint of costs and battery life, Ryzen would be the way to go. Just something to think about.

    Speaking of battery life, Microsoft states a battery life on this 15” Ryzen model to about 17.5 hours. We don’t know how they arrived at that number, but my regular use brought about 11-13 hours with the battery set to Recommended mode. That’s essentially a full day before reaching for the wall charger. You can easily mitigate battery usage by reducing screen brightness as well as disabling keyboard backlighting and turning off Bluetooth if you’re not already using it. Also, the more applications you have running in the background, the more battery will be consumed.

    /////////// Summary ///////////

    At its price point, it will have to trade blows with Dell, Lenovo and even the upcoming Samsung for ultra portable PC laptops, and many may find the other brands more visually appealing if we consider all their models comparably equipped. It boils down to preference and what is value priced at the moment. But again, there is something to be said about a company that designs both the hardware and the software of a device and even collaborates with chip makers like AMD to make a premium product, and so I recommend the Surface Laptop 4 15” Ryzen Edition as a buy. It’s a shame that Microsoft didn’t go with the nextgen of Ryzen processors. Apple is at the forefront of hardware and software, with their new M1 chip being all the rave at the moment, and is another alternative to the Surface Laptop 4 if you don’t mind running MacOS. Another avenue would be gaming laptops that offer much more performance at the same price point, but are larger, heavier and will need to be plugged in most of the time. I recommend that you think about your daily use cases and make a decision on a certain type of laptop from there.

    Very solid machine

    I am someone that I would describe as techy, but at the same time, not overly so. The TL;DR of this review is that that is the type of person this laptop will suit best.

    PROCESSOR AND PERFORMANCE

    I have two laptops in my house. One is my work computer and the other is my personal laptop, which this is a replacement for. My personal laptop was a 2010 value laptop and there's no comparison between it and this. Things are a little closer with the company supplied laptop. That has a 2015 core i5 processor and an SSD as well. I thought maybe they'd be fairly comparable, but the Surface Laptop 4 is soooo much snappier and responsive. The extra 5 years (these have 2020 Ryzens in them) and this being more on the level of an i7 make the two processors feel night and day. Microsoft went for processing power on this and it shows. Very fast in everything it does. Opening programs, installing them, running large Excel sheets, etc. I can't compare it to Surface Laptop 3s as I never had one, but compared to my decent work laptop, this is much better. One thing to note though is don't get this expecting it to be a gaming laptop. You can play some of the less demanding games on it, but if you like 4k @ 120hz+, you've come to the wrong machine, though I'm sure someone with those tastes knew that. Gaming that would probably work well on here would be streaming like Microsoft's Xcloud or Google Stadia. Something where the computer isn't being tasked with rendering the game. Thanks to Wifi 6 built in, you could stream games. Speaking of, wifi 6 is amazing. My phone gets 250 to 300 Mbps downloads and uploads over my gig speed wifi. I ran the test on the Surface Laptop 4 and hit over 400 Mbps both ways, which is a massive gain. I wish everything had wifi 6.

    BATTERY LIFE:

    This laptop has great battery life. I charged it the night I got it and have been using it each night over the last 5 days or so and still haven't had to recharge it. That's a win in my book. Every other laptop I've ever used gave me maybe 7 or 8 hours.

    STORAGE AND RAM:

    Storage is ample with a 512GB SSD in mine. I love the SSD. A cold boot and this is up and at your desktop in maybe 20 seconds. It's fast. No complaints here. As far as RAM though, I do wish there were more. It's a little light at 8GB and considering a lot of top end phones carry around that, I wish there was more on a machine expected to do more. I believe it is upgradable down the line. Plus, this laptop carries a premium price tag so it really should come with a little more.

    USE

    This is a dream to use. Fast, responsive, and has a comfortable, wonderful feeling keyboard to type on. The touchscreen is nice, but admittedly I'm avoiding using it to keep oil streaks off my pristine screen. The color accuracy of the screen is great and it makes video really pop. The only downside I find here is that while it does support HDR, it has to be on certain apps. You can't go on youtube in Edge or Chrome and watch HDR. That's my biggest complaint as everything else about the screen is a thing of beauty. I also enjoy the 3:2 aspect ratio as 16:9 is much more suited to movies and TV.

    The webcam works great for video calls, though I only briefly tested it. Speakers sound good too, though I would encourage anyone to set up a nice set of external speakers. These are laptop speakers after all. You're not going to get a home theater experience from them.

    VERDICT:

    If I could give it 4.5 stars, I would. It's a beautiful laptop that runs exceptionally well. Incredibly polished experience all around. The only things I would knock it for are RAM, though more is available for extra money, and smaller things like a lack of legitimate graphics hardware, or the HDR thing I mentioned previously.

    As I said early on, if you're techy enough to like the finer things in the world of consumer electronics, but not so techy that you're building your own PC or looking for your next gaming laptop, this will be a great laptop for you.

    Now there's competition!

    For a long time there was not a lot of competition for high end (non-gaming) laptops, with the Surface Laptop 4 it looks like things are changing. With the new AMD Ryzen 7 Microsoft Surface Edition processor they claim 17.5 hours of battery life on this model and I didn't quite get there but there was more than enough battery life to get through a long day of work and home use. The touch screen and trackpad were very responsive and the backlit keyboard was a joy to type on. The speakers were loud as well as clear and the build quality felt very premium and balanced in the hand. The usb-c, usb-a and headphone jack ports were all a welcome sight. The only knock I have would be that they didn't go for an exotic feature such as a digital screen button row as I feel that would lead to new and exciting ways to use your laptop. Overall I'm very happy with the Surface Laptop 4 and have no qualms about recommending it to anyone in the market for a higher end laptop.

    More Laptop In This Surface 4

    Presentation:

    Opening the package containing the Surface 4 laptop helped me enjoy the upscale packaging that I’m sure Microsoft was aiming for. The employees took there time to make sure every inch of the boxing process was perfect. I took my time to live that moment longer.

    Setup:

    After removing and opening the Surface 4 laptop out of the box I was greeted by Cortana (Microsoft’s personal voice assistant). Cortana walked me through the initial setup and all I had to do was speak and she took care of the setup. The choice to click and manually make the selections is also available.

    Appearance:

    The Surface 4 laptop feels great to handle and weighs less than 5 pounds. I decided on the aluminum Matte black color and it looks fantastic. I don’t see it attracting fingerprints on the housing unless filthy hands get to it but it will be more for my personal use with school. For now I do Zoom meetings for school and the 720p front facing camera is perfect for it.

    The Surface 4 is equipped with a 15 inch crisp, and clear HD display that’s made for just about anything in touchscreen. Movies look amazing and browsing the web in 2496x1664 resolution detail make all the online shopping experience better and safer because I’m at the comfort of my home.

    This is faster than my other laptop from a well known company and it weighs less.

    Negatives:

    Where are the ports Microsoft?

    -No HDMI (not everyone do casting) the HDMI comes handy when and if I’m doing a presentation and easier to setup in my opinion.

    -Only 1 USB port can work but a backup would be nice.

    -Not a 2 in 1. It’s a touchscreen laptop and if it was designed to fold into a tablet I think it would make it more comfortable to have the option.

    Positives:

    -The Surface 4 laptop is fast. This is faster than my 2 years old laptop but I’m not sure it’s 70% faster.

    -The battery holds the charge for a good duration of the day depending on what I’m doing on the laptop.

    -Facial recognition is also a big deal to me. I’m seeing that feature more but I appreciate having it.

    -Keyboard keys are responsive to touch and smooth by not sticking when pressed.

    -Touchscreen is there when I need it. It’s a bonus to have especially when browsing.

    -Atmos Dolby surround sound makes watching a movie on the surface 4 laptop better when you don’t have your Surface buds nearby.

    -Fast charger. It comes with a magnetic fast charger that fully charge in about 2 hours.

    Other Mentions:

    For the tech gurus out there I know the specs might be a big deal.

    512GB SSD

    8GB RAM

    AMD Ryzen processor

    Which is enough for what I’m using it for. If the Surface 4 can’t handle the task I’ll hop on my desktop but for now it fits my need. Small things can make this Surface 4 closer to perfect but I think Microsoft is on the right path elevating there products.

    Excellent sleek laptop

    This is an excellent laptop with an interesting form factor that will take me some getting use to. I really enjoy the lightweight sleek look of this laptop especially with the 15" screen size.

    If you are looking for a wonderful work or play laptop, I feel like this is the perfect hardware combination with the 8GB of RAM and the 512GB SSD paired with a beefy Ryzen 7 processor. I use Adobe for photo and video work and this laptop handles the sometimes intense processing tasks just fine.

    One thing I did notice was no thunderbolt port which i feel like should come standard nowadays it opens up lots of options. I also noticed the lack of ports on this laptop which isnt necessarily a bad thing because I dont tend to use many usb ports but if you like to connect up lots of things, just know you may need an external port replicator of some sort.

    The battery life on this has been stellar and I'm very happy to say I have yet to run it down in between charges like I tend to do on my other laptops with sub optimal batteries. One thing to note is the battery does not appear to be removable and I dont beleive the RAM is removable or upgradeable either. So if you want the 16GB of RAM, get it up front because there is no adding any additional or swapping it from what I have read thus far.

    All in all, I love this laptop, I think it has great speed, is built well, and provides excellent power with excellent battery life. I would highly recommend it.

    Really pleased with my experience so far

    For some context: I have used many surface products in the past and have been pleased with all of them. In my opinion this is the slam dunk of the bunch for many reasons.

    Pros:

    + The 15inch screen is amazing

    + The Battery life has been stellar

    + I love the keyboard and trackpad

    +Touch screen

    + The internals and the overall design

    Cons:

    - Bezels (they are not intrusive but still)

    - Trackpad (i have it as a pro as well...more on this in the review)

    - No USB-C Thunderbolt support

    - Limited ports (#donglelife)

    I will start with the good and let me just say, this thing is fantastic. I absolutely love my Surface Laptop 4 15" in the two days that I have used it (extensively for work), I am just blown away at how great of a product Microsoft has put out. The battery life has been fantastic, I can't really gauge how many hours I am getting but it is more then 10 and plenty of battery left to go. The Ryzen 7 processor is fantastic and I am pleasantly surprised. I was unsure how it would preform and while I don't use programs to really push the CPU it has preformed great. The keyboard is a delight to type on and the track pad is great as well (I will cover my gripe with the trackpad below). The 3:2 aspect ratio on this 15" screen is incredible. I have never owned a 15" inch laptop and frankly I don't think I would want to go to a 13" inch again. Viewing spreadsheets or emails is an absolute delight. This laptop has absolutely won the award to be my daily driver.

    The very few cons that I have are minutia and frankly things that don't bother me or my performance on the laptop, however, they are still worth noting. This thing has bezels, albeit not large but they are still there. They don't bother me and I don't notice them unless my eye starts to wonder but in 2021 they really shouldn't be here. What should be here, however, is USB-C thunderbolt support and more ports...This has the charging port on the right hand side (which is mag-safe and fantastic), 1 USB-C and 1 USB 3.0 (if I am not mistaken). For me its fine but again, 2021. The trackpad is nice and big but it is more of a square and not a rectangle. Given the amount of space that is on the laptop, I think they could of optimized more of it. My thought behind them not doing it is because your palms, hands and arms have a perfect place to rest when typing....so its a trade off that makes sense to me.

    Overall, I am really enjoying this laptop. Frankly, I love it so much that I recommended it to our IT department for use with the sales team. Its a great product that isn't heavy and gets the job done. Buy it, you won't regret it.

    Microsoft—who knew?

    Bought this back in April when my old laptop died my first day on a new job. I would normally prefer more memory (at least 16 GB) and storage (at least 1 TB), but for work purposes, the 8 GB of RAM and the 512 GB SSD are plenty.

    As with Apple computers, there's something to be said for the same company making both the hardware and the software. This Surface laptop performs smoothly, with none of the problems you'd expect to encounter when the OS has to accommodate a zillion different possible configurations of hardware and software. Good keyboard action, too—and excellent battery life. The inclusion of both USB-A and USB-C ports (one each) is a nice touch—no need for an adaptor to use existing backup drives.

    I would suggest three minor improvements, though:

    1. Oddly enough, now that Apple has switched to USB-C charging, Microsoft has implemented something similar to Apple's old MagSafe charger. It's not as sturdy, though. Whereas Apple's MagSafe required considerable force to accidentally disconnect, it seems the slightest movement will disconnect Microsoft's charger. That's probably a good thing insofar as it protects the cable from damage, but it can be inconvenient if you're working away under the assumption that your battery is charging when you've really got only 15% left.

    2. The lack of an indent at the front of the computer, combined with the Windows/Surface logo being four squares, makes it harder to tell where to open the lid.

    3. A keyboard backlight would be helpful.

    Microsoft—who knew?

    The 2014 Mac Air VS the New Mac Air

    I own two Mac Airs. One from 2014 and this one. I would like to compare the two because I feel there are some features on the older version that are more desirable.

    1. The Battery

    The new Mac battery lasts forever and charges quickly with a USB-C port. I favor the older magnetic charger but that's a small thing.

    2. Display

    The new display is very clear however, the screen extends to the very edge of the device similar to the iPhone. So if you drop this device you're screwed. I dropped my 2014 and it dented the edge of the screen but didn't break the glass because of the extra aluminum edge. I don't think the new Mac screen would survive this.

    3. The web cam

    The 2014 is very dark for some reason. The new Mac seems to have fixed this issue with a nice and clear video.

    4. USB ports

    The 2014 has 2 USB-A ports, a lighting connection port, phone jack and an SDXC card slot

    The new Mac only has two USB-C ports and a headphone jack! so you need a number of adapters to connect anything which is quite annoying especially since my wireless mouse uses an old USB-A. Apple only sells limited adapters so you need to buy PC adapters which I'm not crazy about. However I have a dual USB-A adapter from Dell that works great

    5. The Chip

    The M1 chip is lighting fast. Even though my 2014 has an 1.4 Ghz dual core I5, it doesn't compare.

    6. The famous logo

    It's another little thing but, I liked the illuminated apple logo on the back of the 2014. Maybe its no longer there to extend battery life? Idk but I thought it was a nice feature that separated apple from the rest.

    Read BEFORE purchasing “Open box” condition!

    I bought this online in “Open box” condition meaning the display model. It was described as being on excellent condition and all in all I ended up paying around $970 for it after taxes and fees. When I first received the laptop I was immediately in awe of its beauty (I bought the rose gold version) However upon trying to set up the laptop and gain access into it I ran into a bunch of issues which required me to contact Apple support. Best Buy had not done a software reset on the laptop before shipping it to me which resulted in me not being able to log in or set up my password. It was only after 2 days of receiving it that Apple finally pin pointed the issue and was able to walk me through doing a complete reset thereby allowing me to finally gain access into my laptop! Ever since then I’ve been in love with it! My only small complaint would be that I have to buy an adapter now to be able to connect my phone to it, other than that this was a great buy!

    My one and only daily driver for everything

    I have been using this laptop as my daily driver ever since the day I purchased it. It has never overheated. The most it ever gets is a bit warm after having 10+ windows and applications open in the background. The feeling of the laptop is therapeutic and feels amazing, but I recommend having some form of protection because it does feel like one drop from a decent height can be fatal. The display is great. The sound is from the speakers are actually more than decent. Overall, this MacBook Air has been amazing. Highly recommend!

    This is a great budget laptop.

    People think that they have to have a computer with professional specs. But the average person would never use all that power for as long as they own the device. But I get it, most people want to future proof their investment. But the way I see it, no matter how much you spend. You're going to upgrade within 4 to 5 year's anyway so why not think about what you're going to be doing with it in the first place. Most apps are optimized for low powered devices anyway so you'll never need a high end device to start with. But hey, I can't tell you how to spend your money. But for me, I only keep a device for about two years anyway because I love new technology. But for the average person this is a great product.

    Too Little Storage

    I love most everything about the laptop. The Alcantara suede on the keyboard feels amazing and the Windows Hello facial recognition lets me log on securely without raising a finger. The downside is that Best Buy seems to have gotten a custom spec'd version of this laptop with only 128GB. After the upgrade to Windows 11 and a few apps for work (Teams, Office, Chrome and Zoom) I'm left with 11GB.

    Great laptop overall, with a couple of issues

    First the Pros: Not too heavy and compact, Windows 11 upgrade eligible, has 3 ports (2 USB A and 1 USB C), the USB C port can charge as well, comfortable keyboard to type with. Now the Cons: Battery life is poor - only about 3 hours on a single charge, Screen isnt full HD - only 768p, would have preferred if they made it 2 USB C ports instead of just 1. Overall the product is great value.

    Good as a MacBook Air, Compatible with Windows 11

    I like this PC especially that it is compatible with windows 11 , and I would have given 5 stars but it has three things I found annoying, but not deal breakers:

    1st. The VRAM is just 128mb, this PC has the potential to be a Gaming PC, but someone decided to set this with low VRAM. Why, why really? to whomever made that decision, great just great.!

    2nd. It does support surface stylus pens, they work very well but it does not have a tilt sensor, the pen experience is not as good as an iPad, surface or Samsung device with S-pen . I was not surprised but hopping that Samsung or Microsoft would finally put the tilt feature in this PC but of course they did not. So if you are an artist you may want to consider another device. Why, why this does not support tilt?

    3nd. It does get hot from 30C to 50C at normal use; this was not a surprise for me, after all, this is an Intel powered PC. So it is not so comfortable on the lap.

    Overall this is a good PC with excellent hardware and the potential to be excellent but it is just good. Why is that, just Samsung knows. This PC is close to the mac book air from 2020 if someone wants a comparison, or a point of reference.

    Quick speed and vibrant colors

    I wanted another laptop that was inexpensive, small, and fast. This one serves that purpose. I like the fingerprint as an easy way to unlock it. I also like that when I open the laptop, it already starts the booting up process. Past laptops take so long to boot up. The one drawback is that it doesn’t have a cd drive. I’m keeping my old laptop because I can put a disk inside and view old videos and pictures. Yes, everything goes to the cloud now, but keepsake items on several disks I have will not be going into the clouds. Overall, this laptop has a quick processor, the keys light up in the background, the display has vibrant colors, and is perfect for someone who doesn’t require all the bells and whistles of more expensive computers.

    Outstanding

    In the past year I have gone through 2 Laptop computers. Unfortunately that saying you get what you pay for is true, I cannot express how HAPPY I am with this device. The picture doesn't do it justice it is very beautiful. I have the Ice Blue model Specs 10th Gen intel core i5 processor 128GB. Very fast, EXTREAMLY responsive one of if not the best computers "window" computers that is...I have ever had. The crazy part is that this is considered one of their budget models and the budget laptops I have gotten in the past TRULY are budget. This one feels different from boot up until I am finish working on the device. $600+ no isn't cheap, however then again that saying you get what you pay for rings true; a little more for a more reliable computer is well worth it. Great for kids who are learning from home, Great for work at homers like myself. Yes, you can even play games I played The Sims game, which isn't using near as much graphics or cpu as other games ; I found no issues still. My other duds would close out or not respond while playing The Sims. YOU will not be disappointed with this device. I PROMISE.

    Great laptop for a first-time adult laptop user. I use an android phone and my company runs on google so this keeps everything synced. I never learned how to use a laptop/computer besides a phone and this makes life so much easier for me.

    Great customer Service

    I love my HP-15.6" Laptop Intel Core i3. When I was at Best Buy to see the different computers I was getting service from an employee that helped me out a lot to decide which would be my best computer that fits fits my needs. I was very happy with the service and I recommend Best Buy a lot. It is a great place to buy great items.

    HP Laptop Computer

    Very happy with my new HP laptop computer. It fits my needs perfectly at this time. It’s a little wider than I thought I wanted but the numeric keypad is important to me. I utilized Best Buy’s comparison feature online to decide on the computer that I wanted. It was very helpful for me.

    Good Buy

    Fast computer

    Great display

    Was not aware laptop Windows was in S Mode. Salesperson did not mention that to me; what it is/is not; any workarounds, etc. It was a complete surprise to me when I started using it at home. I had to learn what it is, benefits, disadvantages, etc.

    I finally figured it all out. I would have appreciated it if the salesperson would have mentioned it to me. Actually, I don't think she even knew or was aware it came in Windows S mode. That would have saved a lot of time and effort on my part.

    Overall, this laptop was a good buy.

    Cheap, Loud, but Can't Beat the Price

    For the price, you can't beat this laptop. It is true, it can be loud when the fan is running at 100%, and I agree with others, loudest fan I have ever heard on a laptop. However, it doesn't run at 100% all the time, and only kicks in when it starts up, installing updates or doing more intense activity. Laptop is mainly used for web browsing and it functions great. Came with Windows 10 S mode, easily switched it to the regular mode so I could install chrome and other normal programs / apps.

    Premium Affordable Chromebook with 2 Thunderbolt4

    Acer new Chromebook Spin 713 is an affordable slim powerful Chromebook with no compromise on build quality or performance. Compared to its last year model this Chromebook has the new Intel Core I5 11th gen processor with Intel Iris Xe Graphics. Also, has 2 new USB-C Thunderbolt 4 ports with 5v charging.

    What is in the box: Acer Chromebook Spin 713, 45 W USB C power adapter, Manual/warranty sheets.

    Measurement & Weight: It measures 11.8 x 9.25 x 0.67 inches and weighs 3.01 pounds (1.35kg).

    Color: Silver; Memory: 8GB; Storage: 256GB PCie NVMe SSD

    Design: This 13.5-inch 2256 x 504 IPS Vertiview display with ACER logo on the front. Display is one of the best standout features for the price point. Colors are vibrant and crisp and is very bright. This Chromebook display features 3:2 aspect ratio compared to the standard 16:9 on most of todays laptop. This means more screen size vertically which gives more real estate space that minimizes less zooming or scrolling of webpages and more room for browser.

    Spin 713 is very well built with military-grade durable aluminum chassis unlike other brands that are plasticky. Has Corning Gorilla touchscreen and the hinge is built well and supports 360 degree swiveling and is easy to flip around.

    ChromeOS was preinstalled but if this is the first-time using Chromebook then you will need to connect the power adapter first before hitting the power button. Once booted, follow the onscreen instructions to complete the setup. You can download more apps from the google play store app and even has Microsoft word, excel and PowerPoint.

    Charger/Ports: On the left side of the Chromebook, you have the 2 USB Type-C Thunderbolt4 ports. You can use any of the USB C (3.2) ports to charge the laptop battery using a 45W power adapter and supports 5v charging. Also, the USB-C ports support DisplayPort functionality to hook up to external monitor with ease. This is the first Chromebook that has 2 Thunderbolt 4 ports for an affordable price. It has a HDMI port and 3.5mm audio jack. On the right side, it has power button one USB Type A port, MicroSD card reader, volume rocker. Compared to previous gen, this Chromebook uses USB- C easy charge for quick charge.

    No Fingerprint reader on this review model but there is an option to get one with that configuration.

    Battery: With 56Wh Li-on battery, during our testing it lasted close to 8 hours with screen brightness of 48%, running few apps, watching YouTube videos and working on office documentation which is okay for a Chromebook but there is a room for improvement. You will get lesser time if the brightness is high and gaming but the good part is it charges really fast. With 30 minutes of charging, you get up to 3.5 to 4 hours which is impressive.

    Keyboard and Trackpad: Full function keyboard with right amount of key travel during typing. Keyboard is comfortable and backlit. Got a large Touchpad and is surprisingly accurate and has a tactile click when pressed.

    Speaker and Mic: Speakers delivers okay audio experience with loud sound and minimal distortion at maximum volume compared to earlier models and supports DTS Audio and the built-in Smart Amplifier but don’t expect great audio quality and will be great for the video calls or for audio on the go.

    Camera/Face Login: Features a front facing camera great for all video calls and online meetings.

    Performance: This Spin 713 has 8GB of RAM, 256 GB PCie NVMe SSD of storage. There is also an intel I7 processor and would recommend that if you need this as your daily driver. Performance is good and there is no lag when working on video calls, watching videos, opening multiple taps on chrome, multiple apps and even some level of gaming. Great for college kids or for someone who use it for browsing and not into heavy programming or video editing. It does support most of the android apps from google play store. With the latest and greatest Bluetooth 5 and Wi-Fi 6 AX201 this latest Spin 713 doesn’t lack any new technologies.

    Pros:

    + Portable 3:2 screen

    + 2 USB-C Thunderbolt4

    + Touchscreen 360 degree swiveling

    +Military grade durability,

    +Great Battery life (approx. 8 – 8.5 hours);

    + Wi-Fi 6 for smooth video chats and large file transfer

    + Large Track Pad

    + DTS Audio

    Cons:

    - No Fingerprint Sensor

    Bottomline: Acer Spin 713 Chromebook is a portable notepad with all the ports required for anyone to achieve excellent performance. High quality built, large display, 3:2 screen. If you are in the market for a premium Chromebook that delivers better performance and need for everyday use, then you will not be disappointed at the price point it offers.

    Highly recommend for its performance, price and size over other brands in the market.

    Intersection of performance,portability,and value

    ============================

    >>>>> Bottom Line Up front: <<<<<

    ============================

    The Acer Chromebook Spin 713 deserves serious consideration if you're looking to get school and/or work done anywhere your daily routine takes you. Thanks to the Spin 713's - 3:2 aspect ratio - and it's 13.5" 2K screen - I was able to get more done and spend less time scrolling around text heavy pages and "CC" text boxes (that love to live in the bottom of video/class presentations) when plugging away at my classes.

    Once you factor in solid build quality, respectable styling that doesn't scream "cheap plastic", a great (but not perfect) backlit keyboard, reasonable amount of accessory ports (USB-C w/Thunderbolt 4 support, MicoSD card reader, HDMI Output, etc), Quad Core Intel Core i5 based computing performance, excellent battery life that always lasted me through my 6-8 hour sessions away from a power outlet ( PLUS super-fast charging - about4 hours of battery for 30 mins of charging) – I could keep going on and on, but it's not hard to see why this an extremely ideal solution for students and administrative office work on the go.

    ============================

    >>>>> My detailed thoughts: <<<<<

    ============================

    - Overall Design/Aesthetics: -

    I used the Acer Chromebook Spin 713 for a solid week as my primary school workstation. From an exterior, styling perspective, I was very impressed by color choices and textures that Acer used on this Chromebook. The sleek sandblasted metallic “Steel” grey color that I encompasses the exterior is a far cry from the super cheap looking flat black/grey colored plastic shells I have seen in the past. Typically, in my mind I equated a Chromebook as a “budget” option, and did not expect this level of thought/emphasis placed into the exterior design. The silver “acer” and convertible “hinge” accents do a nice job of visually breaking up the solid grey motif, and once I actually picked up the Spin 713 in my hands, I noticed the that it had the nice “heft” that I like to feel in quality mobile products – as in it did not feel like toy. The actual exterior itself is surprisingly fingerprint and scratch resistant. I haven’t had the chance to buy a sleeve or case for the Chromebook yet, so I have been just throwing it my backpack this entire time. Although it’s not 100% fingerprint proof, its done a fantastic job not picking up any scratches so far. The front facing web cam and mic are subtly hidden in the bezel, and the front speakers are tucked away under the front facing portion of the bottom shell adding to the overall professional looking design.

    - Keyboard: -

    The actual keyboard was nicely backlit, and had a reasonable amount of travel in the keys. I spend a large amount of time coding and working with rapid key strokes and I tend to prefer keyboards with large amounts of key travel, but this keyboard was more than satisfactory and I had no issues with any tasks I threw at it. I also appreciated the fact the Spin 713 included a dedicated set of arrow keys – as many notebooks in this size category tend to either omit, or combine them with other keys.

    - Screen: -

    The screen was pretty impressive and I find myself once again surprised at how much performance Acer is giving here in this Chromebook. At its native “2K” (2256 x 1504) resolution, the IPS touch screen was crystal clear and responded rapidly to all my inputs and requests. I can’t find anything negative to say about the screen and thanks to the convertible nature of the Spin Book you can behold its wide-angle viewing glory in “tent” mode (my favorite) – as I would often prop it up on the corner of a shelf or ledge to watch lecture or presentation while doing something else with my hands.

    The My university uses an online learning environment that typically scales with the resolution of your monitor (for both desktop and mobile systems) – however just because the GUI interface scales – it doesn’t make the online environment any easier to navigate and actually use for completing classwork. Compared to my standard 16:9 aspect ratio laptop that I was using to get my work done, the Spin 713 saved me a good amount of scrolling up and down the screen while participating in discussion boards and watching video-based content that had text boxes load underneath. Particularly, if you’re not using an external mouse and relying solely on the built-in track pad. - and fortunately the built in track pad is generously sized and very easy and responsive to use.

    - Computing performance: -

    This Spin 713 is sporting the latest 11th generation Core i5 mobile processor, along with Intel’s latest line of integrated Iris Xe graphics for video playback. Coupled with 8GB of ram and a 256GB NVMe SSD hard drive == zero performance issues. As far as what I needed and what I think most students need out of a notebook to complete their classes – these specs are most likely overkill, but provide ample performance on tap as computing and graphics requirements relentlessly move forward. I appreciate the dedicated MicroSD reader, as it saves me having to carry around yet another dongle to read those when I need to access one. The 2x Thunderbolt supported USB-C ports are awesome if you use devices that can take advantage of their addition features and bandwidth. As an added bonus, there is even an HDMI output which opens up the possibility of using the Spin 713 with an external monitor or projector as well. The Spin powers on in seconds, powers down in seconds, lasted me 5-6 hours of regular/daily course work, and was virtually silent the entire time.

    ==========================

    >>>>> Closing thoughts: <<<<<

    ==========================

    I really like the Acer Spin 713. It has redefined what I think a Chromebook can do and perform from a professional and school focused notebook. The Spin 713 has almost everything going for it in that regard: elegant styling, a functional/productivity focused 3:2 aspect ratio, excellent battery/charging features, premium construction, a solid backlit keyboard, the latest generation of Intel parts …. And even a HDMI output for when/if you need to output your display for a classroom presentation (whenever that day eventually comes). The Spin 713 should definitely be high on your list if you’re in the market for something to help you excel in your course work on the go – or even just at home.

    Slim laptop with Android functionality

    This little thing is an interesting cross between a slim laptop and a large tablet with what feels like a crossbreed between Windows and Android. I’ve had one other Chromebook before that felt more tablet-like than laptop-like, but this one feels more laptop-like and the tablet feature is just a neat addition.

    The great thing about a Chromebook is that if you already have an Android device you already have some familiarity with the possible applications. With the Play Store you pretty much have everything you can ever need from typical big name applications down to the simplest of games. You can choose to use them like you would with a normal computer with the touchpad or a connected Bluetooth or USB mouse, or touch screen. The touchscreen feels as sturdy as my cell phone or tablet with the Gorilla Glass but does have some flex with it being so thin and large.

    You have two USB Type-C Thunderbolt 4 ports, one USB 3 Type-A port, HDMI, headphones and micro-SD slot for all the connectivity you could use. If it doesn’t have the connection type you need, you can easily find an adapter for that. The keyboard is backlit, which some larger laptops don’t even include.

    The resolution of the screen is capable of 2256x1504, but wow, talk about making everything super tiny. The default 1410x940 that it is set for feels a bit more usable, regardless the screen is bright, colorful and detailed. Flipping the screen past 180 degrees turns it into tablet mode. This disables the touchpad and keyboard but does feel strange still having all that underneath. You can leave it at just about any angle and it holds itself up. The built in camera is decent enough for video conferencing, but not the best looking selfie camera. The speakers are on the underside of the keyboard and kind of weak and hollow, but there is a 3.5mm headphone jack, Bluetooth and USB for better sound options.

    Battery life is always dependent on what you are doing. With a full charge and some sporadic usage here and there, this thing lasted for days without charging and was instant on when opened. A full charge claims over 11 hours and the included charger gets that back up in a fraction of that. But, brightness, volume level, intensity of the application all takes more power and can burn through that charge time quicker than originally calculated.

    A side note, in case you may encounter this issue. When I first received this, I could not get connected to my WiFi router, an Asus RT-AX88U. It would show as “Out of Range” regardless of being in direct sight of my router. After changing some settings on my router it was discovered that the “Optimized for Xbox” option in the wireless settings, picture attached, was preventing this laptop from connecting to my AX enabled networks. Acer is now aware of this issue and may be resolved eventually, but just in case you have that issue, that could be your fix.

    Overall, this has been a fun and useful laptop as it still gives the functionality that you need in a laptop as well as the ability to play your favorite Android games.

    Premium Hardware

    This is by any means a premium machine with state of the art specs, that happens to run Chrome OS:

    • The screen is a high-resolution: 2256 x 1504 pixels, giving it a 3:2 aspect ratio, with a 2K resolution. This is the same as newer Surface laptops and others that are moving away from 16:9 (1080p) form-factor, which is much better for editing documents, and while watching movies, I appreciate the controls remain outside the viewing area.

    • Tablet mode: The 'Spin' in the name indicates this is a convertible laptop, so when folded with the screen on top, the keyboard becomes disabled, and one uses it via touchscreen. The screen has a gorilla glass (like phones), and the OS detects this mode by maximizing every window and showing the touch keyboard when necessary.

    • The keys are island style, backlit, with the ChromeOS distribution: No command/windows key, and the caps-lock becomes the search key. It's very comfortable to type with.

    • Trackpad is large and responsive, with a smooth glass surface. Very nice to work with.

    • Ports: On the left, there are two thunderbolt 4, one HDMI and audio jack. On the right, the power, USB-A 3, Micro-SD slot and volume keys (To use mostly in tablet mode)

    • The sound (With DTS label) comes from two speakers on the underside – front. It took me a while to get used to hear the sound coming from the bottom but it works.

    • Charging is via one of the thunderbolt/USB-C ports. It comes with a large, typical laptop-size charger that has an USB-C port, and also worked by charging from an USB-C dock.

    • Wi-Fi: Supports WiFi 6. I was able to get around 300 Mb up and down on a gigabit internet, using SpeedTest from the Play Store.

    • Storage is via an M2 type SSD: 240 GB.

    • RAM is 8 GB.

    • Bluetooth 5.0.

    • The CPU is an 11th gen Intel Core i5, and is 'Evo' compliant: Evo is an approval mark by Intel for systems that support current state of the art specs like higher-end Intel embedded graphics, Thunderbolt 4 and WiFi 6, with over 9 hours battery life.

    Because the ports are Thunderbolt, I was able to use two 1080p monitors connected to a single thunderbolt dock (which uses USB-C Alt mode, like Macs) and also, separately, used a portable generic USB-C dock to drive an external display, keyboard and mouse.

    The laptop also has a web camera. I didn't find it to be too impressive, but works. I used it with Zoom (Chrome app) and it works well as long as there is adequate lightning.

    ChromeOS:

    Although initially it was basically a way to run the chrome web browser, within the last few years it can also run Android apps. Many android apps work well within a laptop screen, and with Intel 64-bit CPUs.

    And now in beta, it also runs Debian Linux within a Virtual Machine, which also supports complex GUI applications like Microsoft Visual Studio Code. This works by either using apt-get from the Linux console or by downloading a .deb package.

    So within Chrome apps, Android and Linux there isn't much it cannot do.

    ChromeOS is generally very secure, and is fairly straightforward to restore the laptop to like it came from the factory. Much of the system is 'read-only', and that makes it more resilient.

    Keep in mind that ChromeOS, for much of its functionality requires internet connectivity, although there's plenty that can also be done offline as well.

    Also keep in mind that Google collects plenty of data from Chrome. In return, a lot of what’s done on the device is backed up and synced into Google's cloud, so working on different devices or replacing a Chromebook is also a lot simpler.

    Overall, I'm very impressed with this laptop and how capable ChromeOS is while being very secure.

    The multiple-personality of the system running Chrome and web applications, Android and Linux is great but there are occasionally some rough areas in how these coexist, although it's been very good overall and it keeps improving.

    So in this way I'd prefer ChromeOS to an Android tablet.

    The hardware in this laptop is top of the line. Consider this if looking for a premium Chromebook or a high-end Android tablet.

    Quality Inside and Out!

    The new Acer – Chromebook Spin 713 Laptop is beautiful inside and out. Built on the 11th Gen Intel Evo Core i5 platform, this Chromebook can go for an extended period of time on one charge, and with its two Thunderbolt 4 Type C Ports can be fully charged in the fraction of the time it takes most laptops.

    The 13.5” screen with its 2K IPS VertiView touch display delivers a screen resolution of 2256 x 1504, an awesome picture that in large part can be contributed to the Intel Iris Xe graphics. With its 3:2 ratio display that delivers 18% more vertical space, the picture when watching TV or a video is quite impressive for such a small laptop. The audio, just average but sufficient, paired with a small external speaker with added bass, gave the audio the sound it needed for viewing a movie.

    But in addition to the responsive and bright touch screen display and bright brilliant graphics, there are other components that contribute to making this a top-notch computing product. The speed of the Chrome OS was a very pleasant surprise and performs very well. It makes my 500 GB internet seem even faster. The touch pad is also smooth and very responsive. And, because of different light levels that I work in, the backlit keyboard is an especially nice amenity to the Acer Chromebook Spin 713.

    For a product that is just over 3 lbs. in weight, the Acer Chromebook Spin 713 Laptop has a lot to offer. Considering that Chromebook encourages use of the Cloud for storage and includes quality wireless connectivity to accomplish this, this Chromebook still has an integrated 256 GB SSD (Solid State Drive) and 8 GB of RAM built into the laptop. It is equipped with Google Assist and has a “one-button-key” that can return you quickly to search for any documents or apps that you have been working on through this laptop.

    This Chromebook is capable of interfacing with various types of media and can be used in many applications. It has a built-in HDMI port, the two USB Type-C Ports with Thunderbolt 4 already mentioned, a USB Type A connection, a media card reader, and a 3.5 mm headphone jack. With its 360-degree hinge and very responsive touch screen, it can be used as a laptop, a tablet, or angled in two different positions to serve as a presentation stand for the screen display. The laptop is also Energy Star Certified and equipped with a front facing camera for interacting through Zoom, Go to Meeting, etc.

    All of these high-quality amenities are packaged in an equally high-quality case. Not only is this product, beautiful, sleek, and high-tech looking -- it is high tech. It is enclosed in a military grade tested aluminum chassis and equipped with a Gorilla Glass display screen. Acer offers a 1-year warranty on all parts and labor.

    The Acer Chromebook Spin 713 Laptop may be priced a little higher than other Chromebooks. Even so, it is a real bargain with all that it offers and the quality of its components. I have to give this a 5 out of 5 because I am very impressed with it and cannot find anything at all that is not a positive. Take a look at this product, I think you will be very happy with it and wish to purchase one for yourself or a family member.

    HIGHLY recommend!! The BEST bang for your buck

    I bought this laptop only a couple days ago but so far I'm in LOVE! I switched over from using Windows computers my whole life, so the Google OS looked weird at first and took a little bit to get used to. Other than that, this laptop has been a legitimate delight to use. I'm using it mostly for college work and web browsing/occasional youtube, so I'm not going to be putting it to the ultimate performance test, but it exceeds all of my expectations!

    Pros:

    -Really good battery life (for my light-moderate use. I've had it for 2 days and haven't needed to charge it at all while using it for schoolwork & youtube throughout the 2 days)

    -Amazing screen (in love with the 3:2 ratio and how the display looks! HIGHLY recommend giving this laptop a try just for this screen)

    -Build quality (very solid & feels premium)

    -Keyboard (I'm extremely picky with laptop keyboards and this one is very tactile and responsive/clicky! Exactly what I was looking for in a keyboard)

    -Good trackpad

    -Quiet fans (they'll ocasionally kick up and make a loud noise, but that doesn't happen a lot and only lasts a few seconds. Other than that they are whisper quiet!)

    -Doesn't get hot! (I've felt it get slightly warm but that's it. Nothing extreme or concerning)

    -Very lightweight

    Cons:

    -Speakers? (basically everyone lists this as a con b/c they're not GREAT but in my opinion they're adequate. They could definitely be better which is why it's a "con", but I was expecting way worse based on other reviews)

    -Camera (the webcam quality is embarrassingly bad. I'd have to buy a seperate webcam to use for zoom/online meetings b/c the pics/videos this laptop takes are toaster quality)

    Good Windows laptop alternative for most people

    This is my first Chromebook, after having used mostly high-end Windows laptops since the late 90s. I was thinking about replacing my current Windows laptop (7th gen i7, 16 GB 2133 MHz RAM, 256 GB SSD, 4K 15.6 inch display) with something similar (but newer and faster). However, I realized that I don't really need a lot of power in a laptop, as I recently built a powerful desktop PC that I use for real work. Now I just need a laptop for web browsing, answering personal emails, and throwing together the occasional personal spreadsheet or formatted text document, and I need to be able to take the laptop on road trips not related to work. For such low-demand activities, I thought I could save some money by investing in a decent Chromebook, especially since I expect to always have a reasonably fast internet connection available wherever I would need to use my laptop.

    While conducting my research, I came upon mostly positive reviews of the recently-released Acer Spin 713 Chromebook. Yes, it's not one of the cheaper Chromebooks out there, but its hardware specs are so good that I expect this model to still perform well as a Chromebook for many years. A four-core, eight-thread 11th gen i5 CPU, combined with 8 GB of LPDDR4x RAM, is overkill today, but I expect I'll still be happy with this Chromebook several years down the road.

    Pros:

    -Very fast at web-based activities (assuming you have a fast internet connection)

    -Fast graphics processing (HD videos play back flawlessly)

    -Superb display (no visible pixelation; capable of high brightness)

    -Adequate keyboard (a little cramped due to limited available real estate, but you'll get used to it)

    -Excellent wifi 6 performance (I see 50% faster download speeds than I was seeing with my previous wifi 5 laptop at the same location)

    -Great start-up and shut-down times (literally just a few seconds)

    -Programmable "Search" key (many reviews complain about a "Search" key occupying the place where a "Shift" key would normally be, but the function of this key can be selected from a drop-down menu that includes "Shift")

    Cons:

    -Sluggish response when managing cloud-resident files via Google Drive (takes a long time to select hundreds of files and then delete them; had to break them into many batches; probably par for the course when storing files in the cloud)

    -Found that many Android apps in the Google Play store are not compatible with Chrome OS (fortunately not a problem for the ones I really wanted to install, like MS Office)

    Best Chromebook available!

    I have had this unit a while and can give and honest and fair review.

    If you liked last years model then you will like this one and if not then you will still have issues. This is essentially the exact same unit as last year except for the 11th gen processor and 256 gb nvme drive. Otherwise it is exactly the same. The change to 10nm 11th gen Intel processors is a big deal though and delivers serious performance gains over last years model-specially in graphics intensive tasks.

    I would have liked if they would have made some changes. First off the speaker placement and sound is pretty bad. Side mounted or top firing speakers would make a huge difference here. Smaller footprint would have been nice as well as maybe one other color option. Also stop with the polished edge on the laptop lid-scratches really easy. Not a fan of the ergolift design.

    The good stuff is the 11th gen processor is a game changer in the graphics arena. The processor is plenty fast and adds two thunderbolt ports. THe larger NVME drive is a welcome addition.

    The screen is bright and color accurate. It does have backlight bleeding from the top and bottom edges. The 2k resolution is perfect. Gorilla glass scratch protection on the touch screen is a plus as well.

    The glass trackpad is nice as well.

    Overall this is the best performing Chromebook on the market for the cost. I think this is an excellent choice for most people. I do wish Acer would put more attention to build quality and keyboard.

    Chrome OS has come a long way and I really enjoy using it. I hope that it becomes a full fledged OS as it has the foundation of Linux to add onto. That being said, I can get the majority of my work and pleasure done on a Chromebook without any loss of function.

    In my use case I actually find my chromebook easier to use than my Mac. If Manufacturers can deliver more high end features while keeping costs lower than Macs or Windows pcs then I have a strong feeling ChromeOS based devices are going to be more and more popular over the years. This unit is supported until June 2029 and it has enough power that it might just perform well during that entire time making another strong incentive.

    Perfect fast light small portable machine

    This device is perfect for any person that wants a very light, small, 2 in 1 laptop at the best price even if it's not on sale! It has all the ports you need. 1 USB C, 2 USB 2.1, HDMI, Micro SD, and seriously what else you need for such a small 2 in 1 laptop. The screen resolution and material is great and perfect for both using it via the keyboard or a pen. I recommend this for those who need it for work, college, and general life tasks. Please do not buy this for video editing, gaming, photo editing, entertainment, or any other heavy tasks. The ram is only 4 GB but the good news is that it has a quad core processor with a fast hard drive. This by far is one of the best products from HP that I have ever purchased even it was not on sale!

    School/Remote Work

    I had it's other version that was the same thing but didn't have the 360 screen feature or touch screen. The one I had before for 2 years and it stopped working so I got this one, specifically for the use of college work/remote work on zoom etc... It does it's job good and does what it's supposed to. I have no complaints and got the geek squad 2 year for it just in case (which I highly recommend cause you'll feel more secure).

    I love the HP touchscreen laptops. This is my second one and I would get another in a heartbeat. I got the smaller one this time so I could tuck it into my purse. It handles all of my workload with ease and Zoom is great on the go when I'm not in the office. The sound isnt so great so I have to use earbuds for some meetings. But that isnt hte end of the world.

    My son helped me select this laptop and I like it a lot. It is easy to use, it is light weight and compact. I like the fact that the keyboard folds away if I don't need it. The keys have a nice light touch unlike my old laptop where I had to press hard on the keys. Over all it was perfect for me.

    Much yes. Many good.

    This thing honestly works much better than I thought it would. Battery life and the battery output when unplugged is what cost it a 5 star review. When gaming it almost HAS to be plugged in otherwise you sacrifice lag, frame rate and quality. Other than that this laptop is amazing for the price.

    Chromebook worth owning? Yes!

    This is only my second time using a Chromebook, which uses ChromeOS, and must start by saying this is not a Chromebook or Chromebox you have used before. Included in the packaging, is the Chromebook a USB C charger and detachable USB C Cord, and the Warranty/Ownership Manuals. I should note that this review covers the use and ownership of the Intel i3 Processor model and not the Celeron based unit.

    Unpacking is straightforward, with minimal packaging and the normal amount of peel off plastic. The Chromebook will welcome you with a beautiful red casing, which has a metallic like look and feel, a 13-inch touch capable screen, a built-in webcam, and a well sized backlit keyboard. On the right-hand side, you will find the power button with LED indicator (charging/power indicator) and a USB C port, while on the left-hand side you will find a volume button, a headphone jack, a MicroSD card slot, and another USB C port. I should point out that both ports allow for use with the included USB C charger, so you do not need to guess which port to plug in to. I am not sure if that is a standard feature in USB C compatible laptops but found this to be a small detail which took the anxiety out of charging the device. While this does advertise 128 GB storage, you should remember that approx. 20 GB is used for the OS.

    If you have used an Android based phone, you’ll find that most apps are available for use/install on the Google Play store. There was a quick system update after first power up, followed by a setup process with my Google (Gmail) account used for account setup and login. You can add more than one (1) user to the Chromebook, so if you are purchasing this for more than one user, you’re in luck! Apparently, you can have a much quicker setup if you use an Android phone with your Google account. If you’re afraid of space, simply pop in a MicroSD card and format as needed. I installed a 32 GB MicroSD, which was immediately recognized by the device, and was easily able to store apps and files.

    With the included Wi-Fi 6 capable hardware, and a compatible router or mesh network system, you’ll see quick speeds, and even quicker in-network speeds. I was impressed by the chromeOS’s ability to add a network mapped drive in Settings to access files on my local network server. This saved me the time of having to figure out a Google Drive connection or use an external thumb drive to facilitate any file access or transfer issues. In network speeds easily exceeded 500 Mbps and higher depending on file size. Internet speeds are also near ISP provided speeds with my mesh network (Wi-Fi 6 capable network), when running speed tests in the browser or using one of the more popular speed apps.

    Accessing websites using the included Google Chrome browser delivers the desktop like experience you’re used to seeing on any other laptop or desktop with the app. The browser quickly synced with my saved bookmarks and passwords with my Google account, and all my extensions installed automatically. This allowed me to use the Chromebook immediately after setup and updating. You may need to confirm some settings, but ultimately found this to be painless. Most tasks with Google apps are done within Chrome browser, even when launching the Google Apps shortcuts.

    Apps found on the Google Play store install in a similar way, and my only real annoyance is the lack of apps designed for use on a Chromebook, with a much larger desktop space. You will see apps sized the same way as the mobile app, and function essentially the same as any Android app you’re used to. The i3 processor ensures apps and browsing is snappy. I did not find any slow down of the apps being used, or when browsing websites with the chrome browser. Faster Wi-Fi also ensured that any cloud-based documents stored on my network server or on Google Drive were quickly synced, accessed, and updated.

    Switching to tablet mode is as easy as flipping the screen around. You can also position the screen to allow for the Chromebook to stand the screen up in landscape or portrait mode. The screen orients itself based on how it is being held or positioned, and the touchscreen is responsive. The keyboard does automatically disable, so you do not need to worry about accidentally tapping a key when holding. If you are using an external keyboard/mouse, those will continue to function normally, with the mouse icon only showing up during mouse movement. Having an iPad Pro, I am already used to a large area screen, but was surprised with the speed on the Chromebook. The tablet use does not feel like an afterthought, and I found myself using the device mostly in tablet mode after about a day.

    The QLED screen is vivid and clear and is probably one of the best monitors I have seen attached to a laptop since the IPS display technology launched. While the Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2 supports and has a native 1920x1080 screen, you will find the size scaled down to allow for larger text. You can easily set the display to the native 1080 HD resolution, and you will notice text scale down because of the larger display area. Watching HD content on my various streaming apps were displayed in full HD with beautiful color. You can tell Samsung spent some time getting the screen right for production and did not lose sight of the 2-in-1 concept with a subpar monitor.

    Where this does not shine is the built-in camera. It is less than a megapixel, with pictures and video looking a bit grainy and out of focus. It was the only part of this entire product that fell short of expectations. This is likely due to the smaller bezel space in the design. However, given the advancement in digital camera sensors and millions of mobile devices with cameras, you would think the picture quality would be better. For casual use, this might be OK, but given that I was going to use this for some web calls at work, it felt low quality. Given the increasing reliance on remote work, you may want to invest in an external webcam, or use your phone. I guarantee the picture quality is better.

    If you have used Chrome to browse your favorite websites and are used to using the Google suite of apps with Google Drive, you are in for a treat! The Chromebook is fast, allows for some expansion using the MicroSD slot, and is easy to use. If you have never used a Chromebook, get used to a keyboard shortcut for Caps lock, and be blown away with the performance of this little laptop. Overall, the Samsung Galaxy 2 surpassed my expectations and has changed my opinion of ChromeOS for everyday use. Finally, a Chromebook worth owning!

    Stunning looks along with speedy performance

    Samsung makes a pretty stylish Chromebook 2 with an eye popping fiesta red color that is bound to get you noticed and express your style. The form and function of this Chromebook makes it compact, but still fairly powerful for easy use and mobility.

    This Chromebook 2 offers up a stunning 13.3" QLED display that makes colors and visuals just pop and come alive off the screen. The ability to see over a BILLION colors on this 1920 x 1280p screen is truly impressive. I have a Samsung QLED Q90T TV set and this closely matches the performance of that. Streaming movies and watching entertainment on this screen is truly worth the experience. Add to that the impressive sound that this compact Chromebook can make and you're in for a big experience from a small form factor. The screen is a touch screen for the option of touch or stylus, and it can be flipped into a tablet for versatility. Use it as a standard laptop style Chromebook, or flip it and make it a tablet screen. I don't have this yet, but there is an option to use a stylus with this and enhance your daily usability with this.

    Samsung Chromebook 2 offers a Smart Amp for sound and this Chromebook can truly get loud, but still remain crisp and clear. Samsung states that this is 178% louder than normal amps, and listening to music or watching movies truly feels like an surrounding experience. I've really been enjoying my music on YouTube and the sound is better than any of my previous laptops.

    Packed away into this Chromebook 2 is the Intel Core i3 10th Gen chip. From my daily usage over the past few days, I'm blown away at how efficient and responsive this chip makes this Chromebook. The performance feels smooth and never feels bogged down. This feels like a fast laptop computer that I would rival against my Intel i7 Windows laptop. This Chromebook is compact enough to be portable and mobile to keep with you on the go. The battery life has also been performing well and lasting all day under normal usage. Surfing on Chrome has been smooth and fast. Watching movies and clips with Disney+ and YouTube have been a fun entertaining experience also. It's a slim profile and thickness to the Chromebook and I would compare it very closely to rival the shape/size of an Apple MacBook Air.

    I've really liked the fact that this Chromebook has offered a backlit keyboard and that Samsung didn't skimp on that feature. Backlit keyboards are such an added value and something that I rely on when I work at all hours of the day and night. I have really enjoyed the size of this keyboard as it is using the real estate given wisely and doesn't have a cramped keyboard. Your hands will fit well and glide across to where they need to be on a smaller Chromebook. Also a big plus to have is the Google Assistant to help you in your day to day tasks.

    PRO:

    Stylish looks (fiesta red)

    QLED screen (1920 x 1280)

    Sound quality is crisp and loud (smart amp)

    Battery life is long

    Perfect for on the go mobility

    CON:

    Slippery feet that don't keep the Chromebook stationary while typing

    Incredible laptop

    This laptop is a great option if you're looking for something on the lower end of the price spectrum as it's a Chromebook. Be aware that Chromebooks have their own operating system different from Mac and PC therefore different compatibility features. For example, these aren't Windows compatible, but do include all of Google's similar programs such as docs and sheets included already.

    This laptop includes the laptop and charger, which is a USB-C cord with power adapter. There are no regular USB ports. There is a C port on each side of the laptop, one AUX input, and micro SD port. On the left is a volume up/down button and the power button on the right. One thing I do love about this is that it has the USB-C port on both sides so you can charge from either side.

    Setup is very easy, especially if you already have an active Google account. Your google email account is what is used for you login information. From the get go, there are the basic apps installed but the Chromebook runs off the Google Play store so there are tons of apps available for download to personalize it as needed.

    This laptop is the 2-in-1 style so you can use it as both a laptop or swivel and make it into a tablet. It does not include a stylus but is compatible with wifi styluses. There is also a feature to activate the stylus tool or use your finger to do things such as capture an outline. I personally use the laptop feature more often, but this is great if you're using it for drawing or design with the touch screen.

    This laptop features QLED technology and let me say, you can TELL. The screen is extremely bright and crisp. The colors are incredible and it offers some extreme high definition for streaming videos. They've also maximized the screen size as much as possible with little border around for the biggest possible screen. There is a camera in the top for video chatting and pictures as well.

    This thing has INCREDIBLE battery life. The box states up to 13 hours of use. I've found I can last two to three days on a single charge with the idle time of it being asleep. This feature is great if you're someone who travels often and needs the most battery life out of your computer or even for students to take to class.

    The speed on this computer is phenomenal. Upon opening the screen, it quickly turns on and is ready to go. I use mine on my wifi and the speed of the internet is also very rapid.

    Overall, this is a real powerhouse of a laptop that is great if you're looking for the simple Chrome OS. I love that it's connected to my google account so I can quickly access my stuff in my email and Google sheets that I use for work. With a large screen size, it's excellent for multitasking. The 2-in-1 feature gives you the best of both worlds of a laptop and tablet. Furthermore, it's light and slim so it's perfect for those on the go.

    Exceptionally well-executed/full-featured 2-in-1!

    I've worked in the IT business since 1993 and built my own PCs since Win 95. At home, we have 2 custom Windows gaming rigs, 2 OEM Windows tower PCs, a Windows AIO set up for quarantine home-schooling, two Windows gaming laptops, a Samsung Galaxy TabPro S Windows tablet, a Microsoft Surface Pro for work, and 4 iPads of varying sizes and generations. Yet in all this time and with all those boxes and wires lying around (and all those that came before), I never had the occasion to try a Chromebook. I've read about all the benefits--ease of use, portability of the computing experience, small form factors, monster battery life, etc. etc.--so I was always curious. And quite frankly, I don't garner as much excitement or satisfaction from troubleshooting Windows issues as I used to (I'm the IT support for my extended family). But with a job change on the horizon, and knowing I'll still want something ultra-portable for work connectivity, I decided to see if a Chromebook could hold its own against the nearly 3 decades of experience I've built around the MS Windows platform (and maybe even give Apple a run for its money). Sooooooo??? Does the Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2 offer a competent and compelling ultra-portable computing experience in its own right, or one that compares favorably to either Windows or an iPad? I'm happy (and pleasantly surprised) to report that the answer is YES.

    Anyone looking at a pricier Chromebook like this one is probably already familiar with Chrome OS, so I won't spend a lot of time reviewing Chrome per se, other than to say that the computing experience seems a pretty intuitive blend of Apple's (or Android's) app-centric user-experience with the familiar trappings of pointing, clicking, mousing, gesturing, and a pretty "Windows-like" desktop and file management UI. As this tablet is clearly designed as a connectivity and media/information access and consumption device (i.e. you won't be doing any hardcore gaming or 3D image rendering here), I found the Chromebook 2 to be an enjoyable, simple, and extremely well-designed piece of hardware that required virtually no instructions or references to pick up and start using with confidence.

    But having never used a Chromebook before, I was unprepared for just *how* simple and responsive this kind of appliance can be thanks to its relative simplicity. For example, initial boot-up was less than 4 seconds (even with one of the fastest NVMe 4.0 Gen4 SSDs in my new gaming rig, I've never had Windows start up that fast!) and the UI instantly resumed even before I finished opening the lid--WOW! For grins, I put the Chromebook 2 into developer mode to simulate an OS failure, then used Chrome's restoration utility to format an external SD card for recovery. I hit power, plugged the SD card to the side card reader, and in less than 4 minutes, not only was my entire Chromebook restored, but all the apps I had previously downloaded were reinstalled. Having reset and reinstalled Windows more times than I can possibly count, I can't tell you what a [pleasant] shock it was to finish a complete system restoration in less time than it took me to grab a soda from the fridge.

    Still, Samsung can't take all the credit for my positive experience...those props belong Google for taking the Chrome OS MILES beyond what it used to be. So what about the tablet itself...is it worth the bank you're paying for the experience it provides? Honestly, I think it is, and I've got a lot of competition to judge it against just in my own household. Let's start with the basics--the color is definitely an acquired taste (there are a few more orange undertones than I like in my reds), but it's a nice departure from the sea of silver, black and grey that typifies much of the portable computing market. Construction feels solid; it's an ultra-portable, but it's not flimsy or so thin that I'm concerned I'm going to snap it in two tossing into an overnight bag or backpack. And though it's definitely a small 2-in-1, it's actually the largest of the bunch (by only a SLIGHT margin) I have on hand for comparison, which means it was the MOST comfortable for typing/navigating without adding a ton of extra bulk or weight.

    Ports and physical controls are definitely serviceable for a unit of this size; there are two USB-C ports, one on each side, a volume rocker, 3.5mm stereo jack, microSD card slot, and a physical power button. It's got a pretty beefy 2.1Ghz i3 CPU and 8GB of RAM, putting performance under the hood on par with competing Windows ultra-portables, and at 128GB, there's ample storage capacity to handle loads of videos, pictures, or apps. There is a VERY tiny webcam lens in the middle of the top bezel with a small blue LED that thoughtfully illuminates when the camera is active. Picture quality is okay and provides for a 0.9 megapixel 16:9 photo image or 720p video...it's fine for Zoom or Teams in a pinch, but that's about all. The bottom features a thin strip of venting holes (though I never noticed the unit heating up in my lap), two smaller vented cutouts for the speakers, and color-coordinated bumpers for setting the Chromebook on flat surfaces without concern for damaging the finish.

    To keep the competition/comparison to devices of like-purposes and design (i.e. I didn't bother pulling out my two gaming laptops for comparison), I lined up the Chromebook 2 against a new iPad with a Logitech keyboard case, an MS Surface Pro, and Samsung's Galaxy TabPro S in the photos below. The Chromebook 2 features the roomiest and most solid-feeling keyboard of the bunch; the spacing between the keys made typing faster and more accurate than the relatively cramped keyboard on the iPad, and less error-prone than using the adjoining keys on the Galaxy TabPro S. The keyboard is backlit, but intelligently so--I imagine there are probably controls to personalize lighting I haven't found yet, but the default setting turns up the keyboard back-lighting when ambient lights gets low--nice.

    You can see that the tablet portion of the Chromebook 2 is captive to the keyboard so you can't disconnect it to use on its own, but the thickness of the Chromebook 2 matches that of the Galaxy TabPro S and the Surface pro with the keyboard covers attached. However, the Chromebook 2's design allows you to angle the screen any way you'd like without needing a kickstand--it was SO refreshing to browse the Net and compose an e-mail without needing a screen prop or having to reorient myself to the screen rather than the other way around. And of course, you can fold the keyboard completely behind the screen if you want to go full-on tablet mode and operate the Chromebook via touch-screen interface.

    Speaking of the screen--this might not be a top-of-the-line OLED display, but Samsung seems to know what it's doing with QLEDs...the display is simply wonderful, easily the brightest and best of the bunch I have for comparison's sake. The colors are richer and the bezel is smaller which made watching videos that much more enjoyable simply because there was more screen real estate to enjoy. Sharp off-angle viewing doesn't seem to suffer much at all which is one of the first things my wife noticed when I started testing it out, i.e. "Hey, that's going to be perfect for watching movies when we travel." The speakers manage to get pretty loud for an ultra-portable; I was able to hear my Netflix streams outside the room without any distortion or loss of clarity.

    Next came a test of battery life. I set Netflix to auto-binge and managed just a hair under 8 hours of constant video playback at 3/4 brightness and 50% volume; that's outstanding longevity for active video streaming via WiFi on a screen of this size. I would imagine the Chromebook 2 might actually come close to Samsung's purported 13-hour battery runtime if you varied your usage; a full battery recharge from shutdown took about 2-2.5 hours with the included adapter. WiFi performance was excellent; I have an ASUS AX11000 WiFi 6 router two rooms away and 400Mbps from my ISP; the Chromebook 2 tested at 408Mbps up to three rooms away before throughput started dropping.

    As I said up front, this Chromebook 2 ended up being quite a surprise and is seemingly VERY well appointed for the tasks it was designed for. I don't know how well it improves on the previous Galaxy Chromebook, and having no real basis of comparison, I don't really know how well it holds up against other Chromebooks in its class. But as someone intimately familiar with the MS and Apple UIs and ecosystems, I can say with surety that this ultra-portable more than holds its own against the competition. We'll be keeping this one for work when I jettison the Surface Pro--I can't think of a better endorsement than that. DEFINITELY RECOMMENDED!

    Key Aspects Covered; Just needs new name

    I'll go ahead and get this out the way. The naming of this Samsung Galaxy Chromebook "2" is misleading. It's not a second gen of the OG Galaxy Chromebook, it's more in the vain of a FE (Fan Edition) or Lite. It cut back on the top end stuff (4k AMOLED, more powerful processor options, included stylus, fingerprint reader) from the OG and mostly kept the amazing Fiesta Red color. But outside of the misleading naming, it has been an excellent computer to use.

    Will do it a little different and list the few negatives I have with the device:

    - Name of device is misleading.

    - eMMC SSD is slow; NVMe would have made this so much better.

    - Keyboard has minimal travel with causes double inputs which really annoys.

    - Lack of at least 1 USB port requires having to use adapters.

    Now onto the positives:

    + QLED display is very nice, gets plenty bright and dim. Not on OLED/AMOLED level of blacks and saturation, but gets the job done brilliantly.

    + i3/8gb RAM/128 gb SSD handles everything I do with ease; never heard the fans (if it even has any) spool up in my testing.

    + Large, back-lit keys are welcome.

    + Thin, and light design. About the size of a legal notepad in length and width. GET FIESTA RED

    + Speakers are very good, fill the room minimal distortion/loss

    + USI stylus support

    + Avg about 9-10 hours on a single charge with my usage habits.

    Overall, the Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2 is a great computer, has great features, build quality and value. Lost a star for the annoying keyboard and lack of at least one USB-A port. Just next time, use a better name Samsung. Also, I'd avoid the Intel Celeron/4gb RAM version for $549 if you plan on getting real work done on your Chromebook as you'd be able to find better options.

    Business and Pleasure Ready

    --- SETUP ---

    The setup for the Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2 is quick and simple. In the box, you’ll find a USB-C to USB-C cable, a charger, and the Chromebook. Just plug in, and begin using your new Chromebook.

    --- FEATURES ---

    The key feature of this Chromebook is Samsung’s QLED 1080P screen, ultra slim design, long lasting battery (12 hours), and comfort in use.

    --- PERFORMANCE ---

    For most of us, computers are a part of our daily lives now. As an educator, I use a computer for longer than 8 hours daily. I immediately tested it with what is most intensive for me: planning. I had charged it the night before and used it for my entire workday without needing to charge it. This included Zoom meetings, training videos, grading, planning, and overall not allowing the screen to go dim or turn off.

    Being a Chromebook, this is a perfect machine for people who rely heavily on the Chromebook suite. I now completely rely on Google Docs, Sheets, Forms, and Slides more than I do their paid counterpart from Microsoft. This Chromebooks works flawlessly with all of these programs.

    The slim design and lightweight heft of this Chromebook makes it very portable. I took advantage of the 2-in-1 design and brought it to bed where I streamed some shows. The sound was more than decent for what I expected a Chromebook to sound like. The QLED screen (Quantum dot LED) makes all the colors in my shows stand out without being overtly bright. The darks are not faded in the shows I watched and I found it an enjoyable experience.

    --- EXPECTATIONS ---

    The product exceeds my expectations. On the weekends, I spend my time managing my YouTube channel. For this, I use Canva, which is a design website. This is another reason the QLED screen is a great standout feature. Designing thumbnails and social media posts feels just right.

    --- VALUE ---

    The Samsung Chromebook is a great investment for daily use including both work and play. The long lasting battery, QLED screen, and superb sound will have you going from work to pleasure in seconds.

    --- APPROVAL ---

    I highly recommend this product for people who use mostly online websites for their work-flow and entertainment. College students, teachers, or just your everyday online shopper will have a wonderful time with this device!

    An emphasis on premium visuals and features.

    Hello gorgeous. I’m referring to the fiery red Galaxy Chromebook 2 as well as the WonderWoman movie playing on the colorful screen. My experience with this new Samsung offers you an introduction to the world of Chromebook as well as how easy and functional this particular version is. I’m especially impressed with the high quality visuals, better than average sound, and the very practical usefulness. Samsung made the right choices for my needs.

    SETUP: I timed the initial setup, including installing my preferred Apps, connecting everything to my WiFI, enabling my account and loading a few APPs I use most frequently. I’ll take you along as I explore the Samsung.

    WHAT: I’m reviewing the Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2 (2021) convertible 2-in-1 with the 13.3” FHD QLED touch screen; with the Intel Core i3-1011U processor; Intel UHD Graphics, 8GB RAM; 128GB of storage, Wi-Fi6; 720P HD camera, backlit keyboard; Ports: 2 USB-C; MicroSD-multimedia card reader; Headphone out/Mic-in Combo.

    You can use either the left-side or right-side UBS-C port for power. The headphone jack and volume are also on the left with the microSD slot. That other USB-C, power button and indicator light are on the right. Because this is a convertible design, the keyboard rotates backwards to create a tablet or it easily self-props for watching a program.

    OUT-OF-THE-BOX PERFORMANCE I’m plugging in the cord to ensure I have a charged battery and I’m ready to power ON:

    00:02:07 to screen on and the login entry. I enter my existing account, and I’m moving on.

    00:03:16 to enable google assistant. OK. Not sure why but done.

    00:03:31 I’’ve apparently loaded Click&Clean app, but it’s free and it checks for malware. Looks like there is also an Ad blocker, and a screenshot recorder, all free, so OK, but I prefer to select my own stuff.

    I’ll switch to the LAUNCHER and there’s my YouTubeTv App. This I will use, so I log-in with my credentials.

    00:03:44 I’ve got a list of some of my favored Apps. I’ll try some live news channels which are on my YouTubeTv APP in the foreground while comparing it to my own OLED TV playing in the background. Beautiful picture on both. Really nice blacks and very colorful on both. I’ve never seen such wonderful video performance on a computer screen. The wide angle of high quality viewing is also a surprise.

    OK, I’m not through yet. I’ve been enticed by the wonderful screen quality into adding PLEX and VUDU so I can watch my own movies.

    00:07:16 It is just over 7 minutes and I’m well past setting up the Samsung’s Galaxy 2, loading my APPs and sampling some video images. I’ve started “Forrest Gump” so I’m gonna be busy for awhile. Nice sound, too. But I’ll plug in some headphones and get comfortable.

    This is the Chromebook experience from Samsung. Nicely done. Couldn’t be simpler. No hiccups. No frustrations. No surprises other that how nice it all looks and works. There is never an issue bringing over any type of file, from photos to documents and spreadsheets. So many supporting players have contributed tools, in the form of APPs for most any need you might have.

    This new Galaxy 2 fulfills the promise that every Chromebook makes. It is exceptionally portable (under 3lbs), very efficient in its battery demands, offering more than than typical memory and storage internal and from Google Drive, while delivering an immense variety of applications. So what’s special? Samsung really knows how to deliver a striking design, that spectacular screen, a comfortable keyboard, a useful selection of features, and this new configuration adds battery stamina along with extra processing, RAM and storage. I like it.

    Solid Chromebook

    This is a very solid all-around Chromebook. It's one serious competitor is the Acer Spin 713 which is better overall at a similar price point, but if you can get this one $100 or more cheaper, it's worth it!

    Pros

    - All metal

    - Excellent backlit keyboard

    - Lots of ports

    - Speedy performance

    Cons

    - Screen is good but not as bright as Acer Spin 713

    - A bit heavy for 14 inch (~3.6lbs)

    IDEAL FOR TRAVEL

    I needed this light laptop for travel. I still have to get used to the keyboard, which is somewhat different, but I think it will work well for keeping up with emails, posting to FB and backing up photos from the camera disk when I'm traveling. It had a slight glitch in the search capacity, but the Geek Squad cleared it up.

    Great laptop…so so tablet.

    If you are looking for an awesome little laptop and maybe the occasional use as a tablet this is a great choice!

    As far as a laptop, It's a perfect size to fit into a small bag, it’s super fast, the screen looks amazing, It has Alexa built in, back light keyboard for low light work, awesome battery life, responsive touch screen, all the right ports I need and a nice touch with the camera privacy shutter. It also has a right and left microphone for stereo on the zoom calls! I give it 5 stars for a laptop without reservation.

    Then I began to play with the tablet mode and looked for the screen release button to pull the monitor off for the tablet experience…and….no detachable screen. It just folds over. Which makes for an awkward hold and heavy. You're carrying around a lot of extra weight in the unit as opposed to a unit that truly converts to a tablet and detaches from the keyboard unit. The detachable screen is key for people that are truly wanting a tablet experience (for me anyway). It also has the keys of the keyboard exposed as I was holding the unit (see pics) which just felt wrong. As far as tablet functionality, it worked ok. The screen was responsive with my Microsoft stylus pen and writing was smooth.

    Then I went into “tent mode” This is where this 2 in 1 is nice that the screen doesn’t detach. The hinge is firm and solid and allows for a great media experience in tent mode and you can draw and sketch easily as well. I also liked that I could really adjust the angle of the "tent" due to the solid hinge feature. I also liked that the hinge feature in the laptop props the keyboard a little bit giving it a better typing angle in "laptop" mode.

    Overall I really liked this unit as a laptop that can “tent” easily. As far as a tablet again…just so so. It functioned ok as a tablet but the heaviness and feeling the keys depress when I held it in my hands detracted from the function for me. Hence the 4 stars. If you don’t use the tablet feature much or are ok with the weight and keys being depressed then I’d say 5 stars.

    perfect compact little laptop

    Dell Inspiron 2 in 1 laptop its a perfect compact laptop for me, at first 14" laptop might be too small for my liking but overall experience it actually end up being a benefit to my lifestyle. about this Inspiron 2 in 1 its 14" full 1080p HD, running the latest AMD Ryzer 7 5700U. it does have a single USB A on both side, the laptop does not use a standard power connector it does use the USB C thats on the left side of the laptop, you might want to get an adapter incase you would like to use the USB C plug and charge at the same time.

    on the right side you also get one micro SD port and USB A and headphone jack. with 16GB of RAM it should be enought, you also get 512GB of SSD which id recommend to update it to atleast 1TB. cant forget about front facing camera so youre ready for zoom calls.

    i love the design of this laptop, the way the screen lift the keyboard to provide and support for airflow was such a great design idea, the keyboard feels great as well for me it felt premium. theres also a finger print reader, which i never use, but if youre into that its there just another extra feature to have.

    the other part about this 2 in 1 laptop is that the screen is full touch control, you can flip the screen 180 degrees and treat as a tablet. windows also have a setting for full tablet mode that you can select, it doesnt come with any stylus pen, not all pen works on all touch screen so you would probably need one that was made by Dell.

    ive use the tablet mode alot during my live stream, the size of this 14'" laptop was perfect fit for my table, i was able to placed it right in the middle to be as my third monitor during stream, ive used the tablet mode to watch my stream and chat , or wacthing movies through my Vudu account.

    overall the durability seem fine, doesnt feel like it will break easy, flipping to tablet mode doesnt feel great. it does not flip flushed on the back side of the body but i believe its for airflow. the weight wasnt that heavy its perfect weight and it feels premium as it should be.

    Both Capable and Convenient

    Thanks to this laptop, I am completely sold on the folding 2-in-1 tablet/laptop yoga functionality. Being able to fold the laptop into a tablet is hugely convenient for watching YouTube, or playing games on the couch. And, the ability to fold the laptop backwards into an “A” shape reduces its footprint enough to allow me to watch videos anywhere. It fits where the traditional laptop cannot and it stands up in places where a tablet would need a kickstand (which never works as well as intended). For convenience, this laptop is incredible.

    The formfactor is light, thin, easy to hold and carry with only one hand. It truly is the sweet spot where a smartphone, tablet, and laptop all come together into one capable and convenient device.

    The solid state drive makes booting up incredibly fast. Seriously, once you experience how quickly it powers on and boots up, you will never go back to a standard hard drive. The extra cost of a Solid State Hard Drive is completely worth it. I also truly love the fingerprint reader that is built into the power button. It is the absolute fastest way to log in and makes it easy for multiple users to access their own account quickly. Unlocking your own profile is almost instant by just lighting resting your finger on the button - it is quite impressive. Not only is scanning a finger quick, but it is much more consistent and reliable when compared to unlocking via facial recognition. Fingerprint scanning has been around for years, but HP & Microsoft really got it right on this laptop.

    While this laptop is impressive, I do have a few complaints.

    - I really do not like that the up and down arrow keys are half the size of a standard key. The split key makes navigation a bit cumbersome at times.

    - The laptop comes with a fair amount of bloatware. The harddrive has plenty of space, but the computer is always popping up messages about updating special software, running HP programs, or signing up for various other features.

    - The keys are completely flat (no contour at all)

    - The fans are impressively quiet, but the bottom still becomes quite hot

    - The metal lid feels quality but attracts fingerprints (see attached pictures)

    - The computer brags about AMD RYZEN series 7 and AMD RADEON Graphics, but the fancy foil stickers are just for show and the laptop is not suitable for any substantial gaming. Much of what you’ll find on Steam requires more power than what this laptop can deliver.

    ...But, it can handle ROBLOX - so my son gives it a pass.

    - There are not enough input ports. I appreciate the MicroUSB Card reader, but just 2 USB and 1 USB-C input is simply not enough - Especially as the USB-C port is how the laptop charges.

    The one lone USB-C port does allow for the transfer of displayport / video signal, but it is required for the charging. The logical solution is to attach a USB-C hub, but when the Power Cable is attached a hub - the laptop displays error messages about insufficient power. Either the power brick/cord that comes with the laptop should be more powerful, or there should be a separate USB-C port exclusively for charging.

    Overall I believe that this laptop offers great value as it is an impressive balance of power, convenience, and affordability. Those who require intense graphical and processing capabilities (for gaming, animation, or video editing) may want to look elsewhere, but the average user will be delighted with the features, functionality and convenience.

    Good So Far

    The Dell - Inspiron 7415, 2-in-1, 14.0" Touch-Screen Laptop - AMD Ryzen 7 - 16GB Memory - 512GB Solid State Drive says that the color is Mist Blue, but even in the brightest light looks like a charcoal gray at best with maybe a tinge of blue. This 14" 2 in 1 is fairly light weight, 5 pounds or less, and can easily be carried around in one hand and put in some sort of small tote or bag. For this MSRP, I think that Dell could have included at least some sort of sleeve or carrying case because other than the power unit, there are no other accessories that come with the 2 in 1.

    However, this unit does have 360 degree auto-rotate and can thus be used as a laptop in multiple directions, as well as, a tablet in multiple directions, too. I really like this feature for convenience sake. I also really like that this computer can also be used by either engaging the touch pad or just using your fingers, like you would on your smartphone, swiping and touching the computer's screen. Keyboards will pop up on the screen and you can fill in screens or whatever that way versus using the official keyboard.

    The very brief printed owner instructions note that this unit includes Wireless-AX, Bluetooth, Micro SD Card Reader, HDMI and USB Type-C, Waves Maxx Audio and a back lit keyboard that is great for working or playing in dim or no light. This unit does have a fingerprint reader for safety'sake. The Webcam can be shuttered because at the top where the view finder is, there is a sliding mechanism that either puts the view finder either fully open or shut for privacy and especially kids these days with Zoom and other conferences.

    The solid state drive is so very quiet, cool, and the machine is very quick, great if you are wanting to communicate quickly. The reason for only 4 stars is that I do not feel that I have put it through its paces long enough to run into trouble yet. However, the set up is easy peasy, and the battery life is to die for. I took it out of the box with some charge, charged it, and have for a long time just been shutting the covers, not even turning it off, and when I pick it up each time it is on and engaged in a split second or so.

    The only thing that bothered me was that there was no separate 10 key, I am a CPA, but maybe 2 in 1's with only 14" screens do not have enough real estate to put one in. So, other than this 2 in 1 not being able to detach at the hinge and coming with no real accessories. like a stylus pen, carrying case, mouse, or other loaded software, or 24/7 live US-based, no questions asked support like these do on the shopping channels, all is good.

    Reasonable 2-in-1

    The pros of this product would be good battery life and light weight. The display really "pops" with nice colors, and looks large for a 14" display. There's a clever feature where - when using the keyboard in a tradition laptop mode - the bottom of the display serves to lift the front of the keyboard for better ergonomics. There's a unified "key" that serves both as the fingerprint reader as well as the power button.

    The cons include performance limitations given the small form-factor. I'm accustomed to my home PC, which is based on an 11th Generation Intel processor, a lot of DDR4 memory, and a PCIe4 NVMe drive, so the comparison isn't necessarily a fair one. Like most smaller form-factor devices, getting enough information on the display can be challenging, but that's the nature of a smaller device. Lastly, I have dry hands, and I've yet to have a good experience with fingerprint readers. This is no exception - my fingers are hit or miss on the reader.

    All in all, for the money this is a good deal, providing reasonable performance and solid features.

    Nice laptop, great features & thin, clean design

    The Dell Inspiron 14 arrived in a nondescript cardboard box, not much of an unboxing experience. Included in the box is the laptop, a charger (USB-C) and a plug to go with the charger. Once opened, I was pleasantly surprised with a laptop that is very nicely designed fairly thin, clean and sleek. The top lid is an attractive metallic dark blue color while the lower half is a dark metallic gray color. I’m not sure if I like the two tone color scheme. I think it would look nicer if it were all blue.

    Setup was very straight forward, as with other Windows devices, you simply log in with your Microsoft login and your settings are applied. I like that the camera has a privacy shutter (albeit with a tiny metal slider button that doesn’t slide easily) that you can actually see when it’s activated. I have a work laptop that has a privacy shutter also, but it’s not as obvious when its activated. In addition to the 2 USB 3.2 and 1 USB-C ports, there is a HDMI port! On my 2 other laptops (1-3 years old), they don’t have HDMI ports, so if I wanted to put something on the TV, I need to use a USB-C adapter. There is also a Micro SD slot for your photos. The keyboard is backlit with a high and low setting. While we’re on the keyboard, the function keys do double duty as F1-F12 as well as computer settings (volume, keyboard lighting etc). You toggle between function keys and setting keys by pressing fn+esc buttons to lock the function keys or setting keys. But there’s no indicator to tell you which selection you’re on. On my other laptops, there is either a LED that turns on to let you know that the function keys are active, or you hold the fn key and the setting key to activate. Minor pet peeve I suppose.

    Using the laptop is a very pleasant experience, the keyboard is nicely laid out and a good size. The power button, on the upper right of the keyboard, doubles as a fingerprint reader to log into Windows, definitely a nice feature! I was a bit surprised that facial recognition unlock isn’t available on this laptop though. The 2 in 1 feature is nice, but I don’t usually use the laptop as a tablet, I find it too heavy. I downloaded a trading application I use use daily and it installed and ran very quickly. I also installed Microsoft Office and used Excel and Word with no issues. This laptop should be able to handle all my everyday tasks with ease.

    Dell Mobile Connect: As an iPhone and iMessage user, I usually have my phone nearby to read or send messages. With Dell Mobile Connect, it allows me to send and receive iMessages and text messages, in addition, I get all the notifications on my phone. It tried to mirror my phone basically. It seems to do this somewhat successfully. I can send and receive messages, it won’t however, copy all your current messages on your phone to the app. When I rebooted the PC, the conversations I had started on the PC went away (they’re still on my iPhone). I should also be able access my photos and videos from this app also, but I wasn’t having any luck. Both my laptop and iPhone are on the same wifi; the instructions on the screenovate web site shows that in the Dell Mobile access app, I need to have a setting “allow local network access” toggled in the ON position. On my phone, that setting isn’t even available (see photos uploaded). It seems the Dell Mobile Connect app needs some work, but it’s a good attempt to bridge the gap between your mobile device and PC.

    Alexa came pre-installed with the laptop, this is great, as I have many Alexa products, but don’t have an Alexa speaker near my office where I will be using the laptop. With the Alexa app, I can have Alexa turn on lights, control the thermostat, etc as if I had a speaker nearby! But this isn’t unique to this Dell laptop, I was able to download the Alexa PC app on my other Windows laptop as well.

    Overview:

    This is a great little laptop for anyone looking for a laptop for work or school. The minimal design, features and processor speed makes it a great choice and I would highly recommend it. I did have a few “cons” on my list, but they’re minor issues, not deal breakers. I look forward to using this Dell laptop on a daily basis in my home office!

    Pros:

    1. fingerprint reader

    2. Nice, clean design

    3. Dell Mobile

    4. Mechanical privacy shutter (that you can see when it’s on/off)

    5. Light up keyboard

    6. Alexa

    Cons:

    1. Can’t unlock using face

    2. 2 tone color scheme

    3. No LED to indicate whether function keys are on or not

    4. Privacy shutter difficult to slide

    Great starter laptop for students and new grads

    Dell’s Inspiron 7000 2-in-1 14” is a very good starter laptop computer for students, recent grads, aspiring creatives, or light gamers on the go.

    Other reviewers have commented on the rather minimalistic unboxing, and I for one was super thankful I didn’t have a boatload of plastic nonsense to throw away on unboxing (most of it cannot be recycled anyway). The trash was minimal and it’s a pitch-perfect approach for the audience of this particular laptop.

    The hinge design is actually one of my favorites I've seen in 2-in-1s lately. It's both smooth and substantive all at once - and comparing to a tablet+kickstand+keyboard combo (like the Surface), you'll love the ability to change the angle of the computer without it falling over and/or forcing awkward angles. It feels both lightweight and stable, which is a surprising rarity for 2-in-1’s, and Dell doesn’t disappoint here.

    There was a minimum amount of pre-loaded nonsense, which is a time-saver very much appreciated as my family’s IT person who regularly sets up new devices. Out of the box, it was good to go within about 30 minutes of setup time which seems to be pretty normal these days on Windows machines. The battery life so far has been outstanding. I haven’t needed to try out the Express Charge™ options, but it’s nice they’re included.

    I really liked the advent of the mechanical webcam cover, what I did not like was the comparatively low quality of the ONLY cam on the computer — too low of a quality to allow for facial recognition (which is probably why they included the fingerprint reader?). There is no back-facing webcam like you find on laptops in the 14-17” range, and I don’t really want to attach an external webcam, but it’s “good enough” if you’re just doing video meetings with your team/cohort. The fingerprint reader also makes a lot of sense in a world with masks in classroom settings, where this laptop is likely going to find a huge amount of viability.

    The touchscreen is responsive and works well with the Microsoft pen stylus, and it has a magnetic attach point for the pen on both the left and right sides of the screen. The touchpad is a nice size and has no weird pressure points, the keyboard is also nice to type on — no surprises there (for work laptops you don’t need crazy high-end, you just want it to do its job reliably, and it does here).

    The brightness of the screen and viewing angles are very good and they’re telling the truth about the minimal bezel. You won’t get crazy resolution out of this device or 4K (not really important in the context). You WILL get versatility and battery life, which is important in a laptop for students and new grads.

    The placement and number of the included ports (USB-A, USB-C, HDMI, and MicroSD) are also very good and support almost everything an aspiring creative will be using. The inclusion of Wireless AX/Wi-Fi 6 alongside a generous 512GB SSD HD virtually guarantees this laptop could survive an entire HS or College stretch.

    I have no complaints about this laptop at all - it’s exactly what it should be, and in the context of a starter laptop for a student, or a recent grad’s first computer, or a creative work laptop or portable “good enough” gaming machine, it’s a very good option to consider.

    Great 2-in-1 Laptop

    I was thrilled to get a new computer! As a student, it is crucial to have an efficient computer and this one is excellent for work and study. I have also been very pleased with the sound system and widescreen, which is especially good for streaming movies, shows, and videos whenever I need a break from work. The convertible feature adds to its versatility and offers an up-close look at whatever project or assignment I am working on. The touch screen feature gives the user so much control. Essentially, the computer has everything a modern user will need and so much more!

    The set-up was fairly easy. The very first time I tested the computer, I was greeted by Cortana, which led me through the entire set-up process (I thought that was neat and entertaining). All it takes is signing in to your Microsoft account(s) and there is also an easy, optional feature that links the computer to your phone. It runs and starts up quickly, without lagging. One of my favorite parts of this computer is that it has 459 GB storage space! Storage is a crucial factor that I consider with all my devices because I love to keep all my photos and important files safely stored and I hate to have to delete some photos to make space for more. It is heavier than my last computer, but it is also a lot bigger. Nonetheless, it is still very portable and the battery life is amazing!

    I always prefer having a mouse attached to my laptop and I often need to connect my devices, whether that is to connect my computer to a bigger monitor, import pictures from my camera, or charge my phone or headphones. I am happy that this computer has USB ports that enable all those necessary connections. Webcam quality can definitely improve, but it works well for a computer. The keyboard is smooth and easy-to-use.

    I would definitely recommend this laptop to any student and to someone looking for a great every-day use computer. I am confident that this computer will last me a very long time and that it will adequately meet every one of my needs and expectations securely and reliably.

    Silent sleeper of gaming goodness

    I caught this gem while looking at gaming laptops and decided to take a closer look at it. I am glad I did. The Lenovo Legion 5 2021 model certainly does not disappoint. The overall design has slimmed down a bit from last years model. This year its outfitted with the new AMD Ryzen 7 5800H powerhouse CPU with 8 cores and 16 threads of processing power. Teamed up with 8GB of DDR4 3200mhz ram you are sure to crunch through the workloads easily. Add another 8GB and you are set! The laptop also has the new Nvidia RTX 3050TI Graphics card that provides excellent gaming, The GPU is teamed up with 4GB of GDDR6 Samsung memory for blistering gaming sessions. Round this all out with a gorgeous 165hz 100% SRGB IPS Panel; you are sure to enjoy many hours of gameplay with vibrant colors and silky smooth action. The surprise in all of this is the 512GB NVMe SSD that Lenovo installed in this laptop. The SK Hynix 512GB NVMe SSD is insanely fast. It provides up to 3600 / 3000 mbps R / W speeds. Typically this is one area the manufactures skimp out on and install slow drives to save on costs. Rest assured, Lenovo has your back on this one. I am super thrilled with this laptop and look forward to all the gaming ahead.

    The laptop has a mux switch included with essentially turns off the internal Radeon Vega graphics and sets the RTX 3050TI dedicated state. This gives you full GPU power. The GPU is rated at max 95w TDP. Definitely not a Max Q variant.

    *** Bonus - Lenovo provides factory overclocking in the bios for the RTX 3050TI which further boosts performance!

    Don't let the 4GB of GDDR6 video memory deter you from picking up this silent sleeper of gaming goodness. It has plenty of power and finesse to keep you gaming for hours on end!

    Affordable laptop great CPU, satisfactory GPU

    I had been researching laptops for about a month in the Fall of 2021. I wanted a laptop for high quality 4K UHD HDR streaming and video editing, along with the ability to display a 4K UHD HDR signal to an external display. I am not a gamer at all, so my review contains nothing referencing gaming.

    Two components became the most important: the CPU and the GPU. This laptop has the AMD Ryzen 7 5800H (CPU) and the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050Ti (GPU). From my research, I found that this CPU is a higher end one with good speed and performance benchmarks, particularly when compared with those from Intel of the same generation.

    After starting this laptop for the first time, and connecting it via the HDMI port to an external display, the 4K UHD video quality was not at all what I expected or wanted. I soon realized I had to configure it to send the video signal (via HDMI) through the discreet Nvidia graphics card. This was very simply accomplished via the Nvidia graphics control panel software. After doing so, the quality of the 4K UHD video was superb (both HDR and SDR). There are practically no dropped frames, and both 30 and 60 fps are displayed very well in 4K. I am extremely satisfied with the video output quality on my external display.

    The drawbacks of this laptop are that the GPU only has 4 GB of video RAM and this is not expandable. There is only 1 stick of 8 GB (3200) supplied RAM. Also is comes with only a single SSD of 500 GB, no HDD. The RAM is expandable, and I plan to add up to 2 sticks of dual channel 16 GB (3200) RAM. I probably will add an internal 1 TB HDD or SSD in the future.

    Configuring the computer after first startup was very easy. Most of it was brainless. This is my first Windows 11, and it just takes some getting used to. I haven't seen anything so far to convince me that it is a leap forward over my years with Windows 10.

    There are many USB ports on this laptop including a USB-C.

    While there are many favorable reviews online of the AMD Ryzen 7 5800H CPU, there are many reviews regarding the Nvidia RTX 3050Ti, and most of them are not very favorable. For my non-gaming uses, I am finding that this laptop performs well for what I want it to, at a reasonable price point.

    Great laptop!

    This Laptop is GREAT! Especially if you already have a more powerful Desktop! Link below for Benchmark in Warzone! The 4GB may limit you for Ultra Textures in future games, for sure, but you can bet yourself high fps using medium/High settings, also this has DLSS! I have tested DLSS in RDR2 (AVG 80 Fps with High/Mix settings), and Warzone (AVG 120 FPS). It also has a MUX switch, you need to turn off Hybrid Mode in Lenovo Vantage, or you can also cannot Laptop to Display Port. Temps are the coolest I have seen in any gaming laptop, and the fans are not so loud either! I highly recommend this budget laptop for college students. I use Visual Studio code! Also: UPGRADE the RAM to 32GB (2x16GB) using crucial 3200 ram. You can run a crucial application (google it) to find exact ram. RAM can be upgraded (2 slots). You can add an additional m.2 SSD (has 2x M.2 SSD slots). Legit Laptop! Again, perfect for college students, and perfect for those who already have a powerful desktop, and just need some mild horsepower on the GO.

    Better than HP Pavillion Gaming

    I originally purchased the HP Pavillion gaming laptop awhile back that BestBuy sells, but had to return it due to manufacturing issues. I was going to repurchase it and it ended up being sold out and this Lenovo Legion was on sale for the same price. I saw that it had a better graphics card and I did a detailed compared and decided to buy it. I will say I think I like it a lot more because of a few things. The battery does not last too long off the charger, but with battery saver mode and low settings it manages for a good amount of time. I keep mine plugged in when gaming all the time just because it runs optimally that way, and I can have my graphics settings turned on high with no lag. Compared to the HP Pavillion, the keyboard and software is so much better, you can customize colors and effects on the backlit keyboard, unlike HP Pavillion. And there is also a built in equalizer/sound software that come with the Lenovo Vantage control panel for the laptop. Overall this laptop is great for multitasking for school and work, and runs great for games (Splitgate for reference ran great on High setting while plugged in). One of the best features in my opinion are additional fans on the sides of the laptop , as well as manyyyy ports, I believe 4 USB ports, 2 ports that you can plug a fast IPhone charger into which I absolutely love, HDMI and ethernet ports which many are in the back of the laptop which I really like so they do not get in the way. Overall, great purchase!

    Pleasant Suprise

    Honestly i did not know what to expect from this laptop. Every laptop i have owned over the years are lenovo built and all have served its purpose. Only having for a day i can say so far it has handled everything well. Runs super quiet and cool. The chassis lenovo built is amazing and i put it as hands down the best in class for low temps and low fan noise lenovo oviousely understands a thing or 2 in keeping temp down and fps up. Iracing averaging 150fps at full, apex aversging 120fps at full, hydrosim averaging 140fps at full, load times are good, i would upgrade the memory as 8gb memory is the bare minimum and also is why the pricepoint on purchasing this laptop. Im my opinion, with a couple upgrades to the memory and ssd becomes a great mid tier gamer laptop

    Surprise, surprise, surprise!!!!

    I actually purchased more computer than I really needed, but that's so as I grow it will be able to fulfill my future needs. What I discovered about this Laptop with the AMD RYZEN 7 Processor is that in combination with the AMD Radeon and NVIDIA GEFORCE RTX GRAPHIC'S, it definitely display's a better image than my 65" SAMSUNG Flat Screen. I would have assumed that the SAMSUNG would not be outdone on picture quality, but this Laptop proved to have an even better display. As far as games go, I still like the old retro game, Unreal Tournament 2004 and that was displayed with ease and the sound is awesomely better than I expected. LENOVO seems to be a favorite of mine so far because this is my 2nd, and the last one it replaced was purchased in 2015. I only gave that one up because it has a broken hinge and this one is built with better material's than the other one I have replaced. Gaming style Laptop's and Desktop's are the way to go because they will always exceed my expectation's and need's! My original intention's were to purchase the LEGION with the AMD RYZEN 5 Processor, but when I was ready to buy, it seemed to disappear on the Best Buy Web Site. It reappeared 2 day's after my purchase. I wonder if they were hiding it from me so that I would buy the more expensive model? Either way,...I am happy!!! The battery life was less than what I expected, but then it's a Gaming Style Laptop!

    I picked this up because my old laptop was ... well, several years old and I was looking for something new. It's still functional, but there were a few quirks about it I wasn't fond of.

    I honestly didn't put "lenovo" together with "gaming laptop" until I saw this. I'm really happy I picked it up. Nice display - honestly, I might have gone for a 17", but this is fine. Up to date Radeon chip, and even RTX 30-series graphics instead of 16xx series - at the same price, which, given my several-year-old laptop has that, wouldn't have been a worthwhile update.

    Minimal bloat, quick, nice keyboard (something I rarely say about laptops) - I don't regret this purchase at all.

    Great Laptop

    Great laptop for school and gaming! I bought the laptop because I wanted something capable of smooth operation while multitasking during schoolwork (zoom class, while having a couple chrome tabs open and maybe some music playing off Spotify) and I wanted a laptop where I could throw my favorite games at it and have no issue running them. It’s a excellent gaming machine with sturdy build quality and the cooling system seems to be amazing, the fans do get a little whinny after long sessions but your computer will stay cool.

    Snappy 2-in-1 Workhorse PC

    The Dell Inspiron 14 7415 2-in-1 is a snappy device. For folks in the market for a solid computer for work or school, I highly recommend it. I should say upfront that I received this 2-in-1 for purposes of providing an honest and unbiased review. I agreed to review this laptop not knowing the detailed specs of the machine in advance. With no preconceived notions, I thought the laptop was impressive.

    This machine is a workhorse for those working from home or those who want a solid day-to-day computer. I spent many years in academia, I would have loved a laptop like this for taking notes in class or working on papers during breaks. This is a good device for now with some potential to be upgraded and improved upon later.

    Overview: The aluminum finish has a blue tint. It is subtle, but it still stands out in a good way. The device feels good to my hands. Fingerprints were at a minimum. Unlike some other laptop surfaces, no one will ever confuse this device with a fingerprint magnet. The laptop has a 720P webcam with a privacy toggle built-in. The display acts as a stand and provides a lift to the device so that airflow can help cool the machine. It also provides a bit of an ergonomic arch to the keyboard. Keyboard is responsive and snappy. The trackpad is large. The screen showed some light bleed on purely dark screens, but nothing too noticeable. All-in-all, I thought the IPS display looked sharp. Colors looked good. I never had any problems with viewing angles. Ryzen 5 5500U processor combined with the internal NVME SSD hard drive makes for a fast machine. The PC boots in a matter of seconds

    The screen flips back to transform the laptop into a touch screen tablet. It all works great. In fact, I think this works better in tablet mode than some 2-in-1 PCs that are way more expensive.

    While I am heaping the machine’s praises, I should point out that the battery performed great. On a full charge, battery estimator estimates you can get around nine hours. In my own experience, I averaged around 6. I played games like “Magic the Gathering: Arena”, streamed video, and spent hours online. I am used to laptops that do not last half as long. I was impressed.

    There are two USB-A 5 Gbps ports, a HDMI port, a micro-SD port, a 3.5MM combo jack for headsets, and a USB-C port that doubles as a Display Port and power port. The device supports USB-C charging. It has no other way to charge. The USB-C charging seemed fast. The 65W power brick does a good job, but unless you have the device plugged into a docking station of some sort, you lose out on the USB-C connection. I wish there were another USB-C port. I would prefer a proprietary charger and an open USB-C port, but that is me. If you work from home and are required to be on a wired LAN, you will need a USB to LAN adapter. Because there are only two USB-A ports, a solid USB hub is a necessity with this computer if you plan to have more than two USB devices plugged in at a time.

    The laptop comes with Bluetooth 5.0 and an 802.11ax wireless network adapter. Wi-Fi performance was good. No dropped connections or struggles during my testing. Range was solid for me. Still, with all the wireless devices in my place, I had a good connection.

    Comfort: This is not the lightest laptop / 2-in-1 out there. It is not the smallest, either, but I found it hit the sweet spot in terms of size and portability. Now, I like that the monitor doubles as a riser to help provide airflow when the laptop is on a desk, but on my lap, it gets a bit uncomfortable having the monitor dig into my legs.

    The computer comes with a minimal amount of bloatware or pre-installed software, but I found what does come installed to be a bit of a mixed bag. Dell has an app installed to connect your phone to the computer. I could not get the app to work with a Samsung Galaxy S10 or a Google Pixel 4. The laptop comes with a 25-day trial to McAfee. Personally, the McAfee software got in the way. Constant onscreen pop-ups and ads were annoying. I will just use Windows Defender, but that is me. Dell software that used the system’s webcam to track my head movements for purposes of positioning audio seemed pointless and just led to a system resources crash. Running software and driver updates from Windows Update worked great, but the Dell updating software that came with the machine screwed up the display driver’s software. I was forced to reinstall the software from AMD. I would recommend just using Windows Update and avoiding Dell’s auto-updates if my experience is indicative of what the experience will be like for others. Probably the only piece of software I liked was Dell Cinema which had a guide to add various streaming subscriptions in one place for easy viewing.

    Upgradeability: The model I tested came with a 256GB NVME hard drive, 8 GB of DDR4 3200 RAM in dual channel, and the 5500U AMD processor. Out of the box, this is a solid device, but I could see that 256GB hard drive filling up fast. Thankfully, Dell has a service guide online to guide any future repairs or upgrades. The components appear to be easily accessible. Upgrading the hard drive and the RAM down the line would be a good way to keep the machine running fast in the future. For the time being, I would recommend storing photos and videos either on a cloud-based service or on a Micro SD card if you are worried about space.

    Conclusion: I have been building computers for over 25 years. I always have people ask what type of computer I would recommend. That has always been a loaded and complicated question. For someone looking for a solid work or school laptop, I feel confident in recommending the Dell Inspiron 14 7415 2-in-1. It is not a gaming computer designed to play the latest and greatest AAA games. It might play some games if they are not too new or too graphically intensive. This machine was meant for the user who wants to be online, stream videos, telecommute, write papers, take notes in class, perform typical day-to-day operations. In my usage, the operating system was stable. I never had a system crash or blue screen.

    Hard drive space and RAM will be at a premium with this model. There is no wired LAN connection and there are not many USB ports. As an office computer, a USB hub or a docking station will probably be a necessity. I also found the Dell software to be a bit underwhelming.

    But those nitpicks aside, I really like this machine. It is a solid workhorse. The performance of the Ryzen 5500U processor and the battery life really impressed me. I love how it looks. I love the display. I love the keyboard and the touch pad. It is a very solid laptop 2-in-1 computer.

    I have included some hardware spec screenshots taken from CPU-Z. I hope this information is helpful. I want to thank Best Buy and Dell for letting me test the Inspiron 14 7415 2-in-1.

    Recommended. 4.5/5

    Solid Dell computer.

    I am a reviewer in this invitation-only program and was provided this product for the purpose of writing an honest, unbiased review.

    I received the Dell Inspiron 14 7415 2-in-1 AMD Ryzen 5000 Series with AMD Radeon 2.10 GHz Graphics card. 2 USB Ports. 1 USB C Port. 1 HDMI Port. 1 Micro SD Card Slot 1 headphone jack. 1 integrated camera with slide cover to close if needed. I went through the setup and all the updates with Windows. That took about 2 to 3 hours total. Going through the setup was pretty straightforward. Follow the prompts and you are all set.

    I then used SiSoftware to benchmark the PC prior to testing functionality. This took about 1 hour to run the benchmark. I was surprised, this Dell it did NOT run hot. Usually SISoftware pushes the computers that I have benchmarked to the point where it runs really hot. The benchmark came back showing that the PC met the specs as advertised. Benchmark for graphics card came back with AMD Radeon 1.8 GHZ with 512 MB DDR4. Max speed was at 1.8GHz. HDMI plug and play was easy.

    I then tested transfer speeds of USB to local solid state HD. Speeds are quick. Also my wireless transfer speeds are really fast as well per wifi Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac) System settings showed that this is already setup with Intel(R) Wi-Fi 6 AX200 160MHz. So that makes this Wi-Fi 6 compatible. I have a mesh network in my house, but I am currently running on WiFi 5. I can't afford Wi-Fi 6 yet. Regardless, the wireless connection was flawless with pickup signal and transfers between rooms and different parts of my house.

    I moved on to test per my day job. I used Revu Blubeam to test the graphics card and it kept up and did not crash. No issues. AMD Radeon did really well with the complex Bluebeam material.

    USB C transfer speeds are FAST. I transferred 2 GB of 4K video in 10 secs.

    I viewed 4K raw video on online streaming and made a movie. No problems either. Image was nice and crisp. No lag. Colors in 4k look very vivid. Also settings where easy to change. AMD Radeon did well here too.

    Tablet mode is really nice. Both full tablet and tent mode is great.

    Color (physical color of metallic gray - not talking about the screen) of the PC and the weight is really good. Well balanced. Metal feels nice. Not plasticy like other cheaper computers.

    Video Calls were fine. No issues. Onboard camera was good. I like the privacy slide that comes built in. No sticky note needed to cover the camera.

    Sound and mic was great. No complaints. Speakers were good. Came with DTX option with purchase/trial. Same with Dolby Atmos is optional with trial. I just stuck with the Windows Spatial use and it still sounded great.

    Dell has always been the workforce of businesses. I currently have a Dell Latitude laptop computer with my current employer. They are just solid devices. Dell always provides great support and solid builds.

    Dell also has onboard software that is proprietary to help with BIOS updates and driver updates and other mobile connectivity options , which is nice.

    Only ding I could give this is the touch mouse kept on accidentally getting hit and my cursor moved to type things and it jumped all over the place which is typical for these types of mouse pad setups.

    Battery life was pretty decent.

    Well Done Dell. I would highly recommend this product for gaming or using for work with high graphics demand.

    Great Work and School Laptop

    Dell has created a very nice laptop for basic work, such as home office and student use. Laptops are not “one size fits all” so it is important to understand what you need before making a purchase.

    This laptop is fast, lightweight and has some very nice features. It comes with 8 GB of memory, which is enough for web browsing, office software, working remotely and most things that people would need at home, school or work. The 256 GB Solid State drive also provides enough disk space for most users, especially since there are so many cloud storage options out there. Solid state drives are fast as well, making this very snappy.

    Setup and configuration was very straight forward and took very little time. Once configured, it is always important to update Windows, so you will want to take the time to update. Dell will offer additional options so please look at what makes sense for you. The support assist is very nice, as it will provide system updates and other scanning options for your new laptop.

    This computer boots up very fast and once it is up, it provides a fingerprint reader that works flawlessly. There is no lag and everything is seamless. The display is clear and bright and looks like a high quality display. 1920 x 1080 is the highest resolution and the recommended setting. The touch screen is precise and responsive as well.

    The hinge is solid and works perfectly for converting your laptop to a tablet. Once folded over, the keyboard is disabled so you will not need to worry about accidental keys being pressed.

    The keyboard is backlit and comfortable and also very responsive. They key clicks are perfect, soft and quiet. The mouse is also responsive and fairly large. The layout is fairly standard and easy to use.

    I have yet to run the battery out after 5 days of light use. It charges fairly fast and seems to outlast other laptops that I own.

    I would recommend this laptop to anyone for everyday use. Dell always puts out a quality product and this one performs very well.

    Impressive

    Bought it for my wife, she’s coming from a sony vaio 15.6. This is our first AMD (ryzen 5 5600)laptop, was afraid of getting really hot but it works cool and fast, i think its faster than my asus TUF I5 10th gen. So far she is in love with that, speakers sound is clear and loud, screen quality is amazing, its light weight, keyboard touch is good and lit up, wifi 6 is fast, battery is long last.

    It would get 5 stars if i would not have to deal with windows bit locker error messages every other day

    Great balance of power and portability

    As someone who has used a LOT of laptops over the past 10 years, I have experienced a lot of ups-and-downs in this market. I have to say that overall, this Dell Inspiron 14 7415 laptop is fantastic choice for a wide range of users.

    This is a 14 inch a convertible laptop with the following features:

    - AMD Ryzen 5 5500U Processor

    - 256 SSD storage (could be better)

    - 8 GB of RAM (upgradeable)

    - Integrated AMD graphics (pretty good for integrated)

    - Touchscreen with 1920 x 1080 display (extra points for not being less than 1080 in 2021!)

    - USB 3.1 type A ports (x2)

    - USB C 4.0 port (x1 , also used for charging)

    - HDMI port (x1)

    - Headset/microphone combination port

    - Micro SD port

    Additionally, it has...

    - Fingerprint reader for easy sign-in

    - Backlit keyboard with 2 stages of brightness (and very well done)

    - Really decent trackpad for a laptop this size

    Quickly, for the techy folks who want to know...

    - Yes, them memory is upgradeable. Per Dell, up to 16GB

    - The SSD is the harder-to-find, shorter M.2 style (see photo for clarification)

    USABILITY

    Even at 14 inches, the screen is bright and crisp. The bezels are minimal, and because this is a convertible notebook, meaning you can bend the screen all the way around to put it in tablet-style, it means you can bend it back farther than you can with some laptops, making it very usable if you are looking at it while standing up. The keys are a nice size and spaced well. The arrow keys are scrunched together in the corner, so up and down are rather small and can be difficult to place without looking at where your fingers are located. This laptop also offers a fingerprint reader, which is embedded in the power button. The power button is in the top right corner of the keyboard, meaning the Delete key is one key to the left of where you might be used to finding it on other laptops. It may be a good idea to disable actions associated with pressing the power button if you are a frequent user of the Delete key.

    The backlighting in this keyboard is among the best I have seen. There are 2 levels of brightness, along with turning it off completely. At full brightness, there is light present around the edges of the screen, but it is very subtle and not distracting, as I have found with other backlit keyboards. The keys are also opaque enough that the light shining through to illuminate the character on the key makes that character crisp and clear, and easier to identify symbols. I would compare the lighting of these keys to a Kindle Paperwhite, where they almost appear as white painted onto the key, but equally clear in the dark as in a fully lit room.

    The trackpad is also superior to many others I have used. It is responsive and offers a good array of customizations. While this may seem commonplace, I have found recently that it is not. A laptop given to me to use at work required a special software download to even be able to reverse the scrolling direction. On this Dell Inspiron, the settings adjustments are directly in the Windows 10 settings, making them easy to access.

    The touchscreen is quite responsive as well. I am not a huge user of touchscreen laptops as I don't like fingerprints on my display, and I also may want to point at something on my screen without causing an action by the computer, but when using this in a tablet mode, it works well.

    PERFORMANCE

    As mentioned above, the memory is upgradable. Depending on the user for this computer, this may or may not be a concern. The 8 GB of memory is sufficient to perform basic work on the computer - internet browsing, checking email, opening a word processor or spreadsheet, and video conferencing. However, since 8 GB is today's bare minimum, for those who want to do more, the memory can be upgraded. As a regular user of Adobe Photoshop, a computer's performance with this software is important to me. Photoshop installed and opened with ease on this computer. However, it did start slowing down a bit once I started modifying photos, especially with artistic effects and multiple layers. However, the fact that I can do this work at all on the laptop makes it usable for me out of the box. I might need my main workstation for large projects, but quick edits are doable, and a bump in the memory will help even more.

    This laptop includes integrated graphics. You probably won't be able to hard-core gaming on it. However, light gaming should be possible, especially with a RAM upgrade.

    This laptop has 256 GB SSD, so hard drive performance is not an issue. However, I wish Dell would have at least added 512 GB into it. While we live in a world of cloud storage, software alone takes up a lot of space and can quickly deplete storage you might need for local files. This is also upgradable, but it uses the shorter version of M.2 SSD modules, so it is likely to cost a bit more to upgrade it since these modules are less common.

    Battery life has been impressive as well. After a full charge, I spent about 2 hours installing software, browsing the internet, and checking email, and the battery was still at 75%. When testing Photoshop's performance, the fans definitely kicked in and it was clear they were running hard, so that dropped the battery slightly more, but this is an intense-use application and can be expected. By the way, even when running hard, the fans were very quiet. I was in a quiet room by myself, but if I were using this in a coffee shop or other location where there is background noise, I doubt I would have heard them at all.

    OTHER FEATURES AND THOUGHTS

    The Dell Inspiron 14 7415 has a USB C port, but it also uses this for charging. To be able to use both data transfer and power, you will need some kind of hub or dongle that has passthrough, meaning the hub/dongle needs to have a USB C port that you can plug the power cable into to pass power to the battery, along with another USB C port for data transfer. It also has 2 USB 3.1 ports and a standard-size HDMI port, which is nice if you wish to connect it to a larger external monitor when you are working from a desk.

    As far as laptops of this size are concerned, this laptop is slightly heavier than some models I have seen in this size. However, in most cases, it probably won't be that noticeable. The extra weight comes from the some of the nice aluminum casing, as it is not all plastic like some lower-end laptops. It is very thin and will fit comfortably even in smaller bags.

    Another included feature that I love on newer laptops is the switch at the top of the display that closes the shutter on the video camera, which this Dell Inspiron includes. This is a physical switch that you can slide that actually covers the video camera. I usually put a piece of post-it paper over the video camera since I am bothered by the constant visibility when I am not using it, so this is much appreciated. It is also detectable by Windows and related software. When I am using video conferencing software, it can recognize when I open and close this shutter.

    Like most laptop keyboards, the function keys (F1-F12) have secondary (nowadays primary) alternate functions assigned to them. This laptop has the usual - volume up, down, and mute, screen brightness up and down, keyboard backlight adjustments, etc. However, this Dell laptop gives generous spacing to the shift and enter keys, and uses full-size left and right arrow keys. As a result, the print-screen, home, end, and insert keys share F10, F11, and F12. Insert and delete follow those going to the right, and finally the power button. This takes away functions that might otherwise be used for these keys. For example, F4 is the Play/Pause key, but there are no Skip Forward and Skip Back keys. And yet, F9 doesn't have any special feature assigned to it. I wouldn't mind this as much if this key could be customized, but none of these keys can be customized. It isn't a huge deal, but it would have been a nice add-in to allow customization of this one key.

    Overall, this laptop is a great choice whether the user requires a lot or very little from it. It's thin and lightweight, but comfortably large enough to get a lot of work done. The keyboard and trackpad are a joy to use, and the screen is crisp and bright, with a resolution that won't require a lot of left-right scrolling on webpages and documents (I HATE that on 768 resolution laptops -that should be banned on any new computer today!).

    Great computer for travel or college!

    So far, I am impressed with this little computer. The size is perfect for travel, laying in bed, a small café table, but big enough to get the job done. I have not had a new laptop in quite some time, but this computer has some pep to it. The AMD Ryzen 5000 series processor is no slouch, and you can feel it. The graphics are sharp and clean, with a screen that displays colors vibrantly. The AMD Ryzen processor and AMD Radeon graphics card work perfectly in sync with one another and the experience is pleasant, quick, nimble, and visually stimulating.

    Another thing I enjoy is the well-backlit keyboard, capable of 3 brightness settings. The long keys on each end make typing precise without accidentally hitting other keys. The charging port is USB-C which is super helpful, and the charging cable is a 65w. This model comes with 2 USB ports, an HDMI, and even a mini SD card slot, plenty of ports to get projects done, and the ability to display them and show off your creation.

    OK, let's talk about the coolest part. This thing turns into a tablet! The screen can open almost a full 360 degrees and folds flat upon its own underside to sit perfectly flat. This feature was my favorite. I liked to prop the screen up and watch movies or flip it into tablet mode while lounging on the couch or in bed. This computer has the best of both worlds, computer and tablet with the power of a computer. The 10-finger touch, full HD WVA display adds to the immersive experience, it just feels so smooth. I wish I had gotten this machine sooner.

    In all, I am pleased with this computer and can see it to be perfect for a college student, or someone who travels and needs to pack light. I would not exactly call this a gaming laptop, but I bet it could handle itself well. The one thing I did not like too much was that when the computer is flipped into tablet mode, the keyboard is exposed on the back. I do not like the idea of having the keyboard being set down on anything. Other than the exposed keyboard, this computer is great, and I will happily take it everywhere with me.

    Light and capable 2-in-1 laptop

    Verdict: This light-weight, portable, and capable laptop is ideal to bring to school, work, or while traveling. This laptop performs well, and it can also be used as a tablet with full touchscreen. It is a great option for students and professionals.

    First impressions. This computer is sleek, thin, and light. It also features small bezels and a generous keyboard with lighted keys. The laptop also has a fingerprint reader for faster logon.

    Hardware. The keyboard allows for comfortable and fairly quiet typing. The touchpad mouse works as expected. You can also do multi-finger motions on the touchpad, but these require some learning. The 14” screen is bright with a high-definition display. It can be completely folded back to be used as a tablet, or used half folded to watch movies. Since it is also a touchscreen, you can really use the screen as a tablet and navigate with just a finger. With a compatible digital pen, this computer can also be used as a writing pad. As expected, the camera and microphone work well. Of note, the webcam has a privacy cover so that you can make sure that no one can watch you through your webcam even if the webcam gets hacked.

    Computer performance. The AMD Ryzen 5 processor, 256GB SSD, and 8GB of RAM provide a great user experience with snappy responses. You can also run quite a few programs at the same time with 8GB of RAM, which is now the standard for new computers. The SSD allows for VERY quick computer startups.

    Things I love.

    - Premium feel

    - Lighted keys provide great convenience in low light

    - Privacy cover for the webcam

    - Nice keyboard that feels great

    - Bright screen with high definition

    - The solid-state drive allows for fast startup

    - The 8GB of RAM makes everything run snappy

    - Active pen compatibility

    - The keyboard types quietly and the fan noise is not really noticeable

    Things I don’t love.

    - The fingerprint reader doesn’t always work; maybe it just takes a bit of time to get use to it

    - One USB-C port is not enough. One or two more would have been great

    Overall, this laptop provides everything I need to do work on the road, and to use as entertainment for movies or as a tablet. Because it is so light and quiet, I use it on my train commute to work, and also to take notes in meetings. I highly recommend it.

    Beautiful Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2

    I did my research before choosing this particular Chromebook and bought this Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2 in Fiesta Red because it was recommended by some tech experts for its great features and great looks. It was good to use for Zoom meetings and email. The size was big enough for my needs. The sound and pictures were clear. I say was because I had it for only 5 weeks before a burglar broke in and stole it. I will probably buy one again.

    Great design & value with acceptable performance

    The aluminum case is solid, the construction is precise (assembled in Vietnam), and the QLED screen is fantastic (almost certainly the best at this price point). Performance is middling - while I can live with the Celeron processor, if you wouldn't miss the $150 upgrade to i3, I'd probably go for it (the step up also includes 8gb ram and 128gb storage). Overall, I'm very satisfied and recommend this Chromebook without reservation.

    Great deal for $150

    This laptop is amazing to deal for $150 I wouldn't pay full price however I mainly got this to do school work but due to this laptop having google play and a touch screen I can actually use discord and play light games. Light video editing etc. I can actually send text messages from my Chromebook and use Facebook messenger as well. My only complaint is the sound isn't amazing but I can live with that for the price. It's defiantly worth a little extra to pick this up compared to a smaller cheaper Chromebook as you can actually see what you're doing with the larger display lol. It's not the end of the world but it does have Linux for advanced users however it doesn't support x86 applications as it has an arm CPU so you cant install steam etc. Most of the time there's an android app that will do the tho job. Since there is an arm CPU it has better android support than an intel based Chromebook. The battery life is way better than any other laptop I have used due to how power efficient the CPU is. Lenovo has really changed my View on chromebooks.

    Excellent chromebook AND value when on sale!

    As the title suggests, this chrome book is an excellent value when on sale. If you are paying full price ($319 USD) I would consider a different chrome book as there are better options in that price range. I bought this on sale for 189.

    This review is for mode 82KN0001US (the touch screen mode). It runs as smooth as butter for your basic internet browsing and movie/Streaming needs. It comes with the mediatek 8183 processor which is what you would want at this price range. Added bonus is the 64gb eMMC vs 32gb which pretty much all other chrome books at this price range with a touch screen have. Also note it’s a 14” screen vs 11” screens at this price point.

    Multiple browsing tabs don’t slow this machine down. It’s a matte touch screen so it does well in bright rooms and helps to avoid smudge marks. Even viewing off center (see image) isn’t bad. Sound is great when watching by yourself - would def get drowned out in a classroom like setting with everyone chatting. Touch pad is slightly flimsy and can seem a little inaccurate at times but it’s not a deal breaker. I bought this for my grade school girls to practice their iReady tests / get used to laptops / virtual homework on seesaw / and for other basic computing.

    If spread sheets are your thing; I would not rec this as the system does slow down. Even using Google docs for excel; just scrolling down the excel sheet got me frustrated due to the “lag.”

    Picture editing beyond cropping / rotating / red eye auto removal would probably be too much for this.

    Would I buy this again? Yes for the sale price. Do not buy this if you think it will replace your work desktop or work laptop where you using MS office suite regularly. It’s really a basic machine that does all the basics perfectly.

    Not a normal laptop

    Simple to use Chromebook to meet the demands I need out of a computer for school.

    Too many reviews complain this isn’t like the laptops they are used to using. For those not familiar with Chromebooks, they are not like a normal laptop, like a Windows computer or MacBook. Think of it more like an Android phone, you download apps to use on it and not programs. It uses Google Drive cloud storage. If you need a Windows laptop get one, however, if you need something that works similar to your phone and not needing to save stuff to the computer itself get a Chromebook.

    Good choice for the price

    I've been using this laptop for a little over a month, and it's totally fine for what it is, which is just basic web browsing and light office work. I've used it for Google Duo calls and it works great for that. The speakers are loud and fairly clear. Apps like Netflix and Hulu run just fine. The web browser part can be a little slow at times, having several tabs open at the same time shows some slowdown but nothing too bad. Overall for the price it's well worth it as a secondary device or for light reading at the coffee shop. Battery life is good, I get several hours of use without even looking at the battery indicator, with full brightness on. Display is great, touchscreen works well and the 1080p resolution is a definite plus over others.

    Inexpensive student option

    Bought this for my son to take to school for 3rd grade and it's perfect. Runs everything the school requires and it has a killer battery. This morning, just before going to school, we realized the laptop had not been charged all weekend. Still, the battery was at 96%. No worries about losing power during school. Also, the touchscreen is a real plus! When my son is working on math problems or fill-in-the-blanks, the touch screen option is much easier than tabbing around or finding the right spot with the mouse. An excellent item for value and function.

    Pleasantly surprised!

    After purchasing a Lenovo Chromebook with a shocking amount of problems (YouTube videos wouldn’t play, audio would turn itself up randomly, I couldn’t access the Google Play store, and it was slow as hell), I was hesitant to buy from Lenovo again. I got suckered into buying this one for that sweet, sweet black Friday discount, and I am pleasantly surprised! Maybe it’s because I’ve been stuck with a 3 year old computer for so long, but this Chromebook feels lightning fast. The battery lasts an eternity, the screen is crystal clear, and the whole computer just FEELS nice, smooth, and crisp. Great computer, would recommend!

    Love Chromebooks

    This is my 6th Chromebook. I also have a 10" Lenovo with a detachable keyboard. I use the spreadsheet and the word processor extensively for personal reasons. The only program I miss is Photoshop but the free version of Pixlr fills in nicely. I would recommend a Chromebook for probably the majority of computer users who are not professional geeks or need something that allows installed programs.

    Great kids Chromebook Alternative

    This is a budget laptop through and through but is perfect for a young child for both school work and some very light gaming. It’s essentially a Chromebook, but with windows. Please note that I am commenting on the laptop both from the perspective of a parent buying this for their child and from my son’s perspective.

    IN THE BOX

    You get the laptop along with a charger. The purchase also includes a year subscription of Office 365 which you can sign up for after setup.

    DESIGN

    I actually like the look and feel of this laptop a lot. It’s really slim has a cool light blue hue to it (which is different from the black and silver laptops you see everyday) and it has a nice “rubber” feeling coating to the outside that makes it easy to grip.

    It has a decent size trackpad, and the typical keyboard you’d expect in a small laptop. It has the up and down arrow keys jammed together which I don’t love, but is almost a necessity given the small footprint.

    The only thing I wish it really had was backlit keyboard. I get it, it’s a super cheap laptop, but the light blue color with white lettering is more difficult than normal to see without good lighting. And the brightness of the screen doesn’t help much.

    In terms of ports, it has 2 USB-A 3.0 (blue) ports which is nice, a USB-C, also nice, headphone jack and microSD slot. I like that it includes HDMI out, but it’s HDMI-mini. I don’t have one of those hanging around, so that’s a bit of a bummer, but I get why a full sized HDMI wouldn’t have worked. It’s too big. And it obviously has a proprietary charging port which is a tiny circle. My other main complaint would be for USB-C charging. I charge most of my electronics with one, and when my kid loses his charger (inevitably) it would have been nice to charge it via USB-C.

    SETUP

    It’s like any Windows laptop. No “kid” skin to speak of, it’s a full fledged Windows laptop through and through. I will say that I had issues setting up my son’s account, which I set up as a part of my family account so I can lock certain apps and websites when he signs in. But this was undoubtedly user error, nothing to blame the laptop for.

    I will add that I use an Alienware as my desktop, and it comes full of bloatware (some helpful, others I never use). I was happy to see the Geobook comes with no bloatware. Which is a good thing given its limited storage space and computational power.

    USE AND PERFORMANCE

    In the world of QHD, 4K, and even 8K, a lot of people might balk at this laptop’s screen resolution. I’m here to say that it’s just fine. I’m not just saying that because a young kid might not care or know any better, but even using it myself, the 1366X768 resolution is just fine for everyday tasks and school work (and light gaming). My only complaint about the screen was that it came with a dead pixel. It is only noticeable when the screen is on and completely black, but in day-to-day use, I don’t see it at all.

    The 64 GB hard drive however, is a bit more difficult to swallow. Windows 10 itself takes up a bulk of that space. Putting movies, videos, pictures, maybe some games, will eat up the hard drive space quickly. My kid doesn’t edit videos, photos or play large games (think Call of Duty) so the lack of storage isn’t a big concern (at least for now). I like that it is expandable via microSD. I’m comfortable upgrading HDDs in a laptop and wouldn’t have minded the ability to do so here, but for my kid who doesn’t know what bleeding edge tech looks like, the relatively slower speeds of a microSD card compared to high end SSD isn’t an issue.

    It also only has 4 GB of RAM, which when you think about it, isn’t a lot since most newer phones have at least that much. But when your kid is browsing the web, watching YouTube videos, doing Google Classwork or even playing Minecraft or Roblox, there is virtually no performance hiccups. I haven’t opened a bunch of tabs or opened programs to really stress it, but I can tell you that day-to-day use (and having heard no complaints from my son about slowdowns, etc., the 4 GB of RAM is more than adequate for this laptop.

    I mentioned gaming. My son plays Roblox and it runs just fine on this laptop. So does Minecraft. I don’t let my kids play high end games (like GTA or Call of Duty) so I don’t see a reason to install it and test its capabilities, but I’m certain for AAA games it won’t run them very well. But again, for what this laptop is, that’s perfectly ok.

    BATTERY LIFE

    I have to mention the battery life. It’s great. It has close to 15 hours of battery life. I’m certain its’ the Intel Celeron processor combined with the low resolution screen that helps it last that long. For kids who aren’t accustomed to charging their electronics regularly, this can be extremely helpful.

    CONCLUSION

    This is a terrific laptop for what it is. A budget laptop for kids. It seems durable (although we haven’t really dropped it, etc., so I can’t say how it would hold up to kids handling it long term). It has everything they need and it’s Windows. Obviously Google Classroom will work through Chrome, which, if your kid does NTI from home is a plus. While I like Chromebooks, I do prefer Windows and having a budget Chromebook-ish Windows laptop for my kids is better (in my opinion).

    Budget friendly and ideal for kids

    Budget friendly computer for light duty usage on a day to day basis. This computer sports a nice but effective Intel Celeron processor. It's enough to get by for web surfing, streaming, and MS Office tasks but will seem to slow down if you push it for more intensive usage. The 4GB of RAM is pretty minimal, but is enough for this machine. 64GB of storage space is good for this machine, as it's an entry level Windows based laptop. You also get some ports for your external devices such as 1 HDMI, 2 USB 3.0 Type A, 1 USB Type C, Micro SD card slot.

    The color is unique and inviting in a soft powder blue case/shell with a soft plastic/rubber texture. You'll get yourself a nice sized 12.5 inch LCD screen with an adequate screen resolution of 1366 x 768 HD resolution. Adequate for an entry level machine and sufficient for virtual classes and schooling from home. It's lightweight which is nice as it makes it easy to be portable and move around with. About 3 pounds and .7 inches thin. The built in webcam will also allow for 2MP video along with the built in microphone so you'll still be able to take part in virtual web based interaction. The box is fairly simple and to the point, as you get a laptop, power adapter, and quick start guide.

    In my opinion the best part of this laptop is that you'll also get a 1 year subscription to Microsoft 365 Personal which is helpful and useful in itself. After that 1 year you can decide what you'll want to do going forward, but it has been coming in handy for our household so far.

    I feel that this machine is ideal for elementary aged, maybe middle schoolers, and senior citizens. It can accomplish the tasks you would need to do with Windows 10 S mode. Don't expect it to do heavy gaming or processing, but use this machine as a budget friendly alternative to a tablet or a laptop that would cost twice the price.

    PRO:

    Screen size is nice

    Compact and portable

    Unique color

    Great for kids. Replaces Chromebook.

    This was an interesting product.

    Kind of like a Chromebook kind of like a tablet.

    So let's go with physical appearance.

    Nice color

    Lightweight

    Grippy feel

    Has multiple ports to plug in

    Keyboard is nice feeling

    Size is good. Not too big not too small.

    Performance

    For being a small compact performance was decent.

    Battery life lasted 3 days of moderate use. First day was heavy due to Microsoft updates.

    Video conference via Skype was good.

    Mic was clear

    Sound was decent.

    My kids used this for their remote Skype music lessons and it did well. No lagging. No freezing..

    Screen was decent. I streamed 4k and it looked nice.

    USBc allowed me to use HDMI adapter to run a big screen and it worked just fine.

    Memory was good. Half of the available space was used by operating system. So saving files locally may not work out. You will need to work off the cloud and with the 1 year subscription of Microsoft office that will help.

    Printing to wireless printers was much easier than using Chromebooks. For whatever reason Chromebooks have App issues and it made.it difficult to print. Because this is Windows 10 based it took care of that issue.

    Only thing I could ding this on was the polarization of the screen. It has filters on it which is probably good to help with eye fatigue but I did not completely like it.

    Other than that this is like a Chromebook but running Microsoft 10 lite.

    For the purpose of my kids this will do just fine for any additional distance learning if needed and general school work.

    Based on what my kids do on computers and how this computer performed. I would recommend this product for kids if you don't want to use a Chromebook.

    Great Starter Laptop

    The Geobook 120 is a 12.5” entry-level laptop that I have been messing around with for about a week now. I have had the chance to use it almost daily as well as having my kids take their turns with it. The fun color scheme and entry level specs skews this machine towards young school age kids, as well as anyone looking for an affordable machine to meet some basic computing needs.

    Specs

    CPU – Intel Celeron N4020 Dual Core 1.10 GHz processor w/ integrated Intel 600 graphics

    Memory – 4GB LPDDR4-2133

    Graphics – integrated Intel 600 graphics

    Screen – 12.5” 1366 x 768p HD TN

    Storage – 64GB eMMC – expandable via SD card up to additional 64GB

    Ports – 1X USB C / 2X USB 3.0 / 1X HDMI 2.0 / 1X microSD Slot / TRRS 3.5mm Jack (headphone and mic support)

    Network Connectivity – Wireless AC

    Audio – dual speakers

    Webcam – 1080P with dual microphone

    Dimensions – 11.9 x 8.11 x 0.71”; 3.05lb

    Battery – 34200 mWh Li-ion

    Other – Windows 10 S w/ 1 year subscription of Office 365

    Design

    The design of the GEO 120 is pretty fun. Mine comes in the light blue color which adds to the fun look. The outer chassis material is a grippy soft touch plastic and features plenty of rounded edges. The inner material is a smooth soft touch plastic – still in that light blue. The keyboard and touch pad keep with the color scheme, and the keys feature white lettering. There is no backlight to the keys. The touchpad is generously sized for the form factor. Its clickable and understand multi-finger inputs. The keyboard also has a function key for media controls, but it does not feature a function lock. The overall design reminds me a bit of the netbook I had back in college. Small form factor, very lightweight, and great for on the go tasks.

    I had my GF’s youngest daughter (10y.o.) help me test the GEO out. She liked the color and the size of the laptop. It was perfect for her to sit on the couch with it in her lap. The base didn’t get particularly warm on her, so hold the laptop on bare skin was no issue. The only thing she had trouble with was the white lettering on the keys. She isn’t a touch typist yet, so she still relies on being able to quickly read the key faces. The white lettering is tough to see in bright overhead light (keys are kind of shiny) and in dimly lit rooms. Other than that she liked the look and feel of the GEO. The keyboard was easy to type on and the keys felt nice to her. They had a good little click that provided enough tactile feedback. She also liked the trackpad because it was fairly responsive and accurate.

    Performance

    The GEO 120’s 4GB of low power RAM coupled with the 1.1GHz dual core means its not going to be a compute power house. If you are used to faster machines this will feel like a step back. However, through the eye of a kid getting their first laptop the GEO has more than enough power. My testing partner has a 12” Chromebook from school, so this isn’t her first machine by any means. However, the comparison between the two was favoring the GEO a bit due to it being a touch faster and more familiar OS (Windows vs. Chrome).

    When it came to playing games she was able to load up some games from the Microsoft store that were already on her account. I’m not 100% sure what all she was playing, but I know she played Human Fall Flat and a couple of other Gamepass games. As far as I could tell she didn’t have any issues or complaints with how the games ran. I would be hesitant to have her try anything too intensive, but knowing it can crank out good experiences on resource-light games is a plus.

    The 64GB of eMMC isn’t a whole lot. eMMC is essentially a soldered SD card – not a traditional HDD or SSD but more like the memory in your phone. The 64GB drive is faster than a HDD, so it moves along well. However, that 64GB does fill up quickly especially if you or your child wants to add some games. I plan to pick up a fast microSD card (64GB max) to toss in the expansion slot. At 128GB I think we would be fine, and not have to do a lot of storage housekeeping.

    Display

    The 12.5” 1366 x 768p (HD) display is perfectly adequate and its pixel density is just fine (125 ppi) for the size. Compare it to a 21.5” 1080p screen and this beats its out by a decent amount (102 ppi). I know seeing 768p can throw you off, but in this case its fine. Its not too bad of a display, and it absolutely fits the budget on the machine.

    However, I do have some issues with the display. In a really bright room the panel isn’t bright enough to not be slightly washed out. The TN panel is an older technology that fits the budget, however it provides really poor vertical off angle viewing. Horizontal off angle viewing isn’t as greatly affected though, which was surprising. I would expect you would want horizontal to suffer more than vertical on a laptop where you are the only viewer. However, I can see screen sharing with siblings as a reason to align the panel for better horizontals. The last issue I have relates to the display housing in the chassis. It is noticeably weak enough to “ripple” the image on the screen along the entire bottom when adjusting the angle or even slightly wiggling the screen. You can also cause ripples along the edges where you grab with even the lightest touch.

    Speakers and Webcam

    The speakers are there. They are very tinny and don’t have a lot of power. I had them at max volume and could talk over them. They are acceptable for limited use, but I would absolutely recommend a headset.

    The webcam does a nice job overall. My GF’s daughter loves to Skype her grandma, so she was thrilled to use the webcam. It does a nice job overall. You do need to stay in a well lit room as it starts to get grainy in low light. The dual mics pick up your voice well, and don’t do too bad with background noise in general.

    Other Thoughts

    So this is my first time running across Windows 10 S. I had honestly never heard of it. It serves as sort of a stripped down Windows experience that is optimized for security and speed. You can’t install 3rd party apps – you can only install apps available in the Microsoft store. Edge is the only browser and it defaults to safe search. The OS appears to have been optimized for lower spec’d systems – I mimicked this experience on my old netbook with a cracked stripped down Win7 build, and it was absolutely the way to go back then. So hopefully Win10 S does the same job of removing some of the system overhead to keep things snappy. If you don’t want or need this protection you can always upgrade (for free) to plain Win10 Home Edition, but you won’t be able to go back once you upgrade.

    Overall

    As an adult with a gaming PC, gaming laptops, a workstation class laptop I can say I am not really the target for this PC. However, I do see the value in a machine like this for a quick runabout or travelling. It is very easy to transport. Where it really shines is with the kids. My GF’s daughter loved it and it didn’t even occur that it was a lightly spec’d machine. She loves getting to use it. As a parent I really like the baked in Office 365 sub, and the walled garden that is Win 10 S. I personally would upgrade it to Home but only because I don’t need those barriers. The only drawbacks I really saw were with the display panel and the speakers. They were the only somewhat underwhelming aspects. Everything else seems great though.

    Daily Driver for the Kids, Family

    The Geo 120 laptop is catered for those looking to perform basic tasks or those who need to run non-demanding Windows applications, all on a budget. The Intel Celeron Dual Core N4020 processor can handle most jobs, but it will definitely feel sluggish overall if you’ve got something much faster at home. This is due to the eMMC storage that performs slightly better than an traditional 7200rpm HDD, but helps keep the overall dollar costs down for the laptop. I think the price vs performance is perfect for our kids in school that are starting to dig into Word or staying connected to their classroom assignments online.

    Although advertised with 64GB eMMC, you’ll have around 25-30GB of usable space due to the Windows installation, so that’s something to think about if you have space requirements. Luckily, you can insert an additional max 64GB MicroSD card for more storage. The 4GB of RAM clearly highlights its weight class, which is to be the best at web browsing or streaming video content, but not all at once. As far as gaming, I was able to give Roblox a test drive, which is currently the game-of-choice for the kids at home. The UHD630 did struggle slightly with frame rates and input response, but it was still playable. Battery life lasted about 7-8 hours under normal basic use.

    There’s a lot to enjoy about this laptop. The keys are very large and tactile and there is just the right amount of “click” with each key press. I like the omission of the touchpad left/right buttons as it is integrated within the touchpad itself. This gives you more touchpad real estate. The screen’s hinge is strong enough to keep it from drooping during sudden movements or adjustments. 1366x768p is a great choice of resolution for a 12.5” screen and also helps increase battery life. The laptop will get a little warm during heavy loads (playing Roblox, for example), but it didn’t bother me. The laptop is very quiet due to its passive cooling method (no fans). The baby-blue color just speaks to the kids! I especially loved that I could charge the laptop (with a laptop-rated charger) through the USB-C port, which means I don’t have to carry it’s proprietary charger around when I travel with it. The front-facing camera is perfect for Zoom calls and the sound output is adequate. It’s lightweight at 3lbs and less than ¾ inch thick when closed.

    There are a couple of things that I wish this laptop had. For one, it would have been nice to have a backlit keyboard. Second, I wish I could upgrade the eMMC storage to an NVMe drive as this would surely give this machine a performance boost. For me, the touchpad doesn’t perform well during small, precise movements. I felt like it lagged or drifted on its own when performing these small adjustments. Also, I am concerned about its durability since its outer shell is entirely made of plastic. I didn’t knock off points for its overall performance because at its price point, it’s actually doing a heck of a job. Lastly, the laptop comes configured in “S” mode, which locks the laptop down to Microsoft approved software, but you can easily switch out of this mode if you choose to do so. I switched out so I could install Chrome Browser.

    I’ve honestly never heard of Geo Computers until I saw this laptop. After visiting their website, I’ve learned that Geo Computers are the largest UK-based supplier of OEM devices. They are part of the Tactus Group and are winners of the 2021 Microsoft Device Partner of the Year Award. And so they grace us with their Geo 120 to compete in the very heavy entry-level laptop class, and it really doesn’t disappoint at its price point.

    Impressive Value

    The GeoBook 120 is quite an impressive value - especially considering that it comes with 1 year of Microsoft 365 Personal which costs $70 on its own. The GeoBook does not have the streamlined simplicity of a Chromebook, but instead manages to provide a more full featured windows experience at an incredibly low cost.

    The physical build does feel rather plastic and cheap but it functions well and is truly able to meet the entry level needs of most young students. Researching on the internet, word processing, spreadsheet creation, watching Youtube, using Netflix, Video chat, and even very light gaming all work well. The battery will play video for over 3 hours and will allow over 5 hours of web browsing or word processing.

    It is important to note that the GeoBook runs Windows 10 Home in S Mode. This means that only applications from the Microsoft store will download and run on the laptop - which actually improves security of the laptop. The laptop also does NOT have a graphics card, so the GeoBook should NOT be purchased for gaming. BUT, my 7 year old son was thrilled to discover that the computer is able to run Roblox reasonably well.

    The GeoBook comes with about 24 gigabytes of remaining harddrive space, but does have a MicroSD slot that allows up to 64 gigs of extra space. The keyboard feels cheep and rather clunky, but works appropriately. The laptop has a built-in camera, but it is only 2MB and it does not have a physical shutter cover to block the camera. If you are concerned about the security of a camera being pointed at your child every time the laptop is open, you may want to buy a 3rd party cover for the webcam. Also, be aware that the video output is Mini HDMI - so you will need a special cable to output the video to a 2nd monitor.

    Overall I am impressed with the value of the GeoBook and would definitely recommend it to those who want a low cost, but nearly full featured laptop.

    A great affordable notebook for kids!

    My wife and I wanted to find a laptop that was geared specifically toward low-end, very simple tasks, that we could let our kids have for at home learning. Specifically, they have internet games they can play that help them work on various school subjects. We have other computers, laptops, tablets, etc. at home but most of them are "ours" as parents or are used solely for fun.

    This GeoBook from Geo has been helped fill this role very well. Our kids were SUPER excited to get a laptop "just like yours dad". They are very excited about being able to do things like ABCmouse, Prodigy, etc. and we're happy to have an option that doesn't take up our work computers.

    The notebook itself has some fantastic features for the price, the 64GB of memory is way more than they'll ever use doing what they're doing, the 4 GB of RAM is plenty for light work and internet tasks, the 12.5" screen is a great size for them as well.

    I must say though, the screen itself leaves a lot to be desired. The 768p resolution is actually really good on such a small screen but the colors are extremely washed out and viewing angles, especially vertical, are pretty bad. I've posted a pic for comparison. That said, our kids didn't care, they don't care about things like color accuracy, viewing angles, off axis color shift, etc. They just don't.

    Other than the sub-par screen, this has been a great tool for our kids and we're excited they'll have something that they can own and will be a tool they can use to help them learn at home.

    Awesome 1st computer

    What an adorable 1st laptop for my nephew. I fell in love with the color and size of this laptop. It’s compact and lightweight. Perfect to carry to school if needed. I bought it more for the aesthetics but this little guy packs a punch. With a free 12 month MS 365 software it was a no brainer. I opened it and gave it a test run. It was easy to use. I recommend this laptop for a child’s (and adult) needs.

    End of support is June 2024

    The Chromebook itself has been ok this far. What I am disappointed in is that according to the model 11a-nb0013dx listed here and also on the box the Chromebook comes in, the Google end-of-support date "should be" June of 2028. Even HP has responded in other comments stating that is the case. However, when you actually power on your laptop, you will notice it is an HP Chromebook 11 G6 EE version which will stop receiving updates in June of 2024. So in 2.5 years from now I will need to buy another computer. That being said I did a cost analysis and what the the current $119 sale price of this laptop, it is costing me ~$47 a year. The other laptops that do actually come with updates through 2028 or 2029 were around $500+. So the per year cost is more. I was going to return this HP but decided I will keep it. Just inconvenient that I have to do this again in less than 3 years.

    Great budget Chromebook but buy a cooling pad

    Picked this up on sale, great deal for $169. Needed it mainly for long Zoom meetings, also use it for some browsing & streaming. Be warned that it does heat up quite a bit after running for awhile, a little uncomfortable on the lap when it does. I solved this issue with a $20 Aluratek cooling pad from Best Buy, I left a review on that as well (BUY IT, works great and runs quiet). Screen quality could be better, need to look at it straight on for best view. But it's a budget Chromebook so I wasn't expecting to be wowed by the screen. As far as the size of the screen, it works fine for me and it makes it quite portable. Very lightweight. When in Zoom and swiping to where I see all the participants on video as well as myself, quality looks pretty good, I sit about 4 feet away generally and microphone seems to pick up my voice just fine. Chrome software and security updates are supported until June 2024, big plus for me. Comes with Google Perks too when you activate it, I got 3 months free of Disney+, Doom & Doom II free and free 30 day premium subscription to Calm app (there are other Perks as well but those are the ones I went with). Speakers ain't too shabby but again it's a budget Chromebook so don't expect to be wowed but they do the job for me. I love having so many ports, I can have my phone plugged into one USB C port while I use the other one to charge it, can access files on a thumb drive using one of the USB 3.0 ports as well as off of a microSD card, have headphones plugged into 3.5mm jack if I'm not using the Bluetooth while also having the cooling pad plugged into the other USB 3.0 port (which actually has a port on the plug so you don't lose access to it). All of this at the same time! Have to use WiFi as there is no ethernet port but haven't had any issues with it disconnecting, I live in a small apartment though so I'm never far from the router so can't speak on it cutting out in room in a house that's a ways away from the router. Trackpad is a little slow but easily fixed that with adjusting the speed in the settings. Overall, a great purchase if you're looking for something simple. Only major con as I mentioned is that it heats up but the cheap cooling pad fixed that. At regular MSRP of $219 some people may be willing to shell out a little more dough for a better model but when it goes on sale again, don't pass up the deal. Highly recommend.

    More pros than cons. The display is ok for a FHD but it’s not what I expected. Keyboard lights up. Great for working in the dark. The speed is cool, has touchscreen and the fingerprint scanner is dope. The cons are the battery drains fast like a refurbished item but I purchased brand new. Feels cheap. Plastic casing. Windows 11 installed. Can’t go back to 10. The price is equal to the build. Gave 3 stars because of battery and plastic casing. Doesn’t feel like a premium built item per the specs.

    Excellent business/ school laptop

    One feature that is NOT mentioned on this product description is that this laptop has a finger print security reader and its the same as the power button (picture attached).

    This is a perfect laptop for Business or school work.

    I purchased 2 of this laptops for our medical practice because they are light weight, have the latest Gen intel processor (11th Gen), they have a fast SSD for storage, and has a very responsive touch screen which allows the patients to sign consents on the device instead of using paper consents and forms.

    setting up the computer is like setting up any windows laptop where you follow the instructions and you will be done in a few minutes.

    this laptop doesn't come with a lot of bloatware.

    I totally recommend this laptop for any business, school work and it is going to last for a few years before you have to replace it.

    Great Value, Killer Price

    I did a lot of research on Lenovo laptops before honing in on this one. I liked the Core i5 processor with 12mb of RAM combo at a great price. The Best Buy salesperson congratulated me on getting the "latest & greatest" from Lenovo, validating my choice. The performance is lightning fast, the display is OK, not terrific and the keyboard "feel" is wonderful. In my opinion, you're getting a $750-$800 laptop at a significant price discount. I'd pounce if I were you, I am glad I did. FWIW, I use mine for MS Office business applications off my job and also for Internet searches. Getting Windows 11 off of S restriction was a breeze, so you can obtain Google Chrome.

    This computer is not only nice looking, but it’s light enough that I can carry it in my bag without too much effort. I like the illuminated keyboard, the touch screen, and the bright colors. It works fast, as soon as everything that needs to be downloaded is done. I used to have a Mac, then before this one, I had a Dell, which I had for ten years, but I love my new Lenovo. I trust this brand because, before I retired from teaching, that’s the brand my school district used throughout the schools -they still do.

    Great kids Chromebook Alternative

    This is a budget laptop through and through but is perfect for a young child for both school work and some very light gaming. It’s essentially a Chromebook, but with windows. Please note that I am commenting on the laptop both from the perspective of a parent buying this for their child and from my son’s perspective.

    IN THE BOX

    You get the laptop along with a charger. The purchase also includes a year subscription of Office 365 which you can sign up for after setup.

    DESIGN

    I actually like the look and feel of this laptop a lot. It’s really slim has a cool light blue hue to it (which is different from the black and silver laptops you see everyday) and it has a nice “rubber” feeling coating to the outside that makes it easy to grip.

    It has a decent size trackpad, and the typical keyboard you’d expect in a small laptop. It has the up and down arrow keys jammed together which I don’t love, but is almost a necessity given the small footprint.

    The only thing I wish it really had was backlit keyboard. I get it, it’s a super cheap laptop, but the light blue color with white lettering is more difficult than normal to see without good lighting. And the brightness of the screen doesn’t help much.

    In terms of ports, it has 2 USB-A 3.0 (blue) ports which is nice, a USB-C, also nice, headphone jack and microSD slot. I like that it includes HDMI out, but it’s HDMI-mini. I don’t have one of those hanging around, so that’s a bit of a bummer, but I get why a full sized HDMI wouldn’t have worked. It’s too big. And it obviously has a proprietary charging port which is a tiny circle. My other main complaint would be for USB-C charging. I charge most of my electronics with one, and when my kid loses his charger (inevitably) it would have been nice to charge it via USB-C.

    SETUP

    It’s like any Windows laptop. No “kid” skin to speak of, it’s a full fledged Windows laptop through and through. I will say that I had issues setting up my son’s account, which I set up as a part of my family account so I can lock certain apps and websites when he signs in. But this was undoubtedly user error, nothing to blame the laptop for.

    I will add that I use an Alienware as my desktop, and it comes full of bloatware (some helpful, others I never use). I was happy to see the Geobook comes with no bloatware. Which is a good thing given its limited storage space and computational power.

    USE AND PERFORMANCE

    In the world of QHD, 4K, and even 8K, a lot of people might balk at this laptop’s screen resolution. I’m here to say that it’s just fine. I’m not just saying that because a young kid might not care or know any better, but even using it myself, the 1366X768 resolution is just fine for everyday tasks and school work (and light gaming). My only complaint about the screen was that it came with a dead pixel. It is only noticeable when the screen is on and completely black, but in day-to-day use, I don’t see it at all.

    The 64 GB hard drive however, is a bit more difficult to swallow. Windows 10 itself takes up a bulk of that space. Putting movies, videos, pictures, maybe some games, will eat up the hard drive space quickly. My kid doesn’t edit videos, photos or play large games (think Call of Duty) so the lack of storage isn’t a big concern (at least for now). I like that it is expandable via microSD. I’m comfortable upgrading HDDs in a laptop and wouldn’t have minded the ability to do so here, but for my kid who doesn’t know what bleeding edge tech looks like, the relatively slower speeds of a microSD card compared to high end SSD isn’t an issue.

    It also only has 4 GB of RAM, which when you think about it, isn’t a lot since most newer phones have at least that much. But when your kid is browsing the web, watching YouTube videos, doing Google Classwork or even playing Minecraft or Roblox, there is virtually no performance hiccups. I haven’t opened a bunch of tabs or opened programs to really stress it, but I can tell you that day-to-day use (and having heard no complaints from my son about slowdowns, etc., the 4 GB of RAM is more than adequate for this laptop.

    I mentioned gaming. My son plays Roblox and it runs just fine on this laptop. So does Minecraft. I don’t let my kids play high end games (like GTA or Call of Duty) so I don’t see a reason to install it and test its capabilities, but I’m certain for AAA games it won’t run them very well. But again, for what this laptop is, that’s perfectly ok.

    BATTERY LIFE

    I have to mention the battery life. It’s great. It has close to 15 hours of battery life. I’m certain its’ the Intel Celeron processor combined with the low resolution screen that helps it last that long. For kids who aren’t accustomed to charging their electronics regularly, this can be extremely helpful.

    CONCLUSION

    This is a terrific laptop for what it is. A budget laptop for kids. It seems durable (although we haven’t really dropped it, etc., so I can’t say how it would hold up to kids handling it long term). It has everything they need and it’s Windows. Obviously Google Classroom will work through Chrome, which, if your kid does NTI from home is a plus. While I like Chromebooks, I do prefer Windows and having a budget Chromebook-ish Windows laptop for my kids is better (in my opinion).

    Budget friendly and ideal for kids

    Budget friendly computer for light duty usage on a day to day basis. This computer sports a nice but effective Intel Celeron processor. It's enough to get by for web surfing, streaming, and MS Office tasks but will seem to slow down if you push it for more intensive usage. The 4GB of RAM is pretty minimal, but is enough for this machine. 64GB of storage space is good for this machine, as it's an entry level Windows based laptop. You also get some ports for your external devices such as 1 HDMI, 2 USB 3.0 Type A, 1 USB Type C, Micro SD card slot.

    The color is unique and inviting in a soft powder blue case/shell with a soft plastic/rubber texture. You'll get yourself a nice sized 12.5 inch LCD screen with an adequate screen resolution of 1366 x 768 HD resolution. Adequate for an entry level machine and sufficient for virtual classes and schooling from home. It's lightweight which is nice as it makes it easy to be portable and move around with. About 3 pounds and .7 inches thin. The built in webcam will also allow for 2MP video along with the built in microphone so you'll still be able to take part in virtual web based interaction. The box is fairly simple and to the point, as you get a laptop, power adapter, and quick start guide.

    In my opinion the best part of this laptop is that you'll also get a 1 year subscription to Microsoft 365 Personal which is helpful and useful in itself. After that 1 year you can decide what you'll want to do going forward, but it has been coming in handy for our household so far.

    I feel that this machine is ideal for elementary aged, maybe middle schoolers, and senior citizens. It can accomplish the tasks you would need to do with Windows 10 S mode. Don't expect it to do heavy gaming or processing, but use this machine as a budget friendly alternative to a tablet or a laptop that would cost twice the price.

    Screen size is nice

    Compact and portable

    Great for kids. Replaces Chromebook.

    This was an interesting product.

    Kind of like a Chromebook kind of like a tablet.

    So let's go with physical appearance.

    Nice color

    Lightweight

    Grippy feel

    Has multiple ports to plug in

    Keyboard is nice feeling

    Size is good. Not too big not too small.

    Performance

    For being a small compact performance was decent.

    Battery life lasted 3 days of moderate use. First day was heavy due to Microsoft updates.

    Video conference via Skype was good.

    Mic was clear

    Sound was decent.

    My kids used this for their remote Skype music lessons and it did well. No lagging. No freezing..

    Screen was decent. I streamed 4k and it looked nice.

    USBc allowed me to use HDMI adapter to run a big screen and it worked just fine.

    Memory was good. Half of the available space was used by operating system. So saving files locally may not work out. You will need to work off the cloud and with the 1 year subscription of Microsoft office that will help.

    Printing to wireless printers was much easier than using Chromebooks. For whatever reason Chromebooks have App issues and it made.it difficult to print. Because this is Windows 10 based it took care of that issue.

    Only thing I could ding this on was the polarization of the screen. It has filters on it which is probably good to help with eye fatigue but I did not completely like it.

    Other than that this is like a Chromebook but running Microsoft 10 lite.

    For the purpose of my kids this will do just fine for any additional distance learning if needed and general school work.

    Based on what my kids do on computers and how this computer performed. I would recommend this product for kids if you don't want to use a Chromebook.

    Great Starter Laptop

    The Geobook 120 is a 12.5” entry-level laptop that I have been messing around with for about a week now. I have had the chance to use it almost daily as well as having my kids take their turns with it. The fun color scheme and entry level specs skews this machine towards young school age kids, as well as anyone looking for an affordable machine to meet some basic computing needs.

    Specs

    CPU – Intel Celeron N4020 Dual Core 1.10 GHz processor w/ integrated Intel 600 graphics

    Memory – 4GB LPDDR4-2133

    Graphics – integrated Intel 600 graphics

    Screen – 12.5” 1366 x 768p HD TN

    Storage – 64GB eMMC – expandable via SD card up to additional 64GB

    Ports – 1X USB C / 2X USB 3.0 / 1X HDMI 2.0 / 1X microSD Slot / TRRS 3.5mm Jack (headphone and mic support)

    Network Connectivity – Wireless AC

    Audio – dual speakers

    Webcam – 1080P with dual microphone

    Dimensions – 11.9 x 8.11 x 0.71”; 3.05lb

    Battery – 34200 mWh Li-ion

    Other – Windows 10 S w/ 1 year subscription of Office 365

    Design

    The design of the GEO 120 is pretty fun. Mine comes in the light blue color which adds to the fun look. The outer chassis material is a grippy soft touch plastic and features plenty of rounded edges. The inner material is a smooth soft touch plastic – still in that light blue. The keyboard and touch pad keep with the color scheme, and the keys feature white lettering. There is no backlight to the keys. The touchpad is generously sized for the form factor. Its clickable and understand multi-finger inputs. The keyboard also has a function key for media controls, but it does not feature a function lock. The overall design reminds me a bit of the netbook I had back in college. Small form factor, very lightweight, and great for on the go tasks.

    I had my GF’s youngest daughter (10y.o.) help me test the GEO out. She liked the color and the size of the laptop. It was perfect for her to sit on the couch with it in her lap. The base didn’t get particularly warm on her, so hold the laptop on bare skin was no issue. The only thing she had trouble with was the white lettering on the keys. She isn’t a touch typist yet, so she still relies on being able to quickly read the key faces. The white lettering is tough to see in bright overhead light (keys are kind of shiny) and in dimly lit rooms. Other than that she liked the look and feel of the GEO. The keyboard was easy to type on and the keys felt nice to her. They had a good little click that provided enough tactile feedback. She also liked the trackpad because it was fairly responsive and accurate.

    Performance

    The GEO 120’s 4GB of low power RAM coupled with the 1.1GHz dual core means its not going to be a compute power house. If you are used to faster machines this will feel like a step back. However, through the eye of a kid getting their first laptop the GEO has more than enough power. My testing partner has a 12” Chromebook from school, so this isn’t her first machine by any means. However, the comparison between the two was favoring the GEO a bit due to it being a touch faster and more familiar OS (Windows vs. Chrome).

    When it came to playing games she was able to load up some games from the Microsoft store that were already on her account. I’m not 100% sure what all she was playing, but I know she played Human Fall Flat and a couple of other Gamepass games. As far as I could tell she didn’t have any issues or complaints with how the games ran. I would be hesitant to have her try anything too intensive, but knowing it can crank out good experiences on resource-light games is a plus.

    The 64GB of eMMC isn’t a whole lot. eMMC is essentially a soldered SD card – not a traditional HDD or SSD but more like the memory in your phone. The 64GB drive is faster than a HDD, so it moves along well. However, that 64GB does fill up quickly especially if you or your child wants to add some games. I plan to pick up a fast microSD card (64GB max) to toss in the expansion slot. At 128GB I think we would be fine, and not have to do a lot of storage housekeeping.

    Display

    The 12.5” 1366 x 768p (HD) display is perfectly adequate and its pixel density is just fine (125 ppi) for the size. Compare it to a 21.5” 1080p screen and this beats its out by a decent amount (102 ppi). I know seeing 768p can throw you off, but in this case its fine. Its not too bad of a display, and it absolutely fits the budget on the machine.

    However, I do have some issues with the display. In a really bright room the panel isn’t bright enough to not be slightly washed out. The TN panel is an older technology that fits the budget, however it provides really poor vertical off angle viewing. Horizontal off angle viewing isn’t as greatly affected though, which was surprising. I would expect you would want horizontal to suffer more than vertical on a laptop where you are the only viewer. However, I can see screen sharing with siblings as a reason to align the panel for better horizontals. The last issue I have relates to the display housing in the chassis. It is noticeably weak enough to “ripple” the image on the screen along the entire bottom when adjusting the angle or even slightly wiggling the screen. You can also cause ripples along the edges where you grab with even the lightest touch.

    Speakers and Webcam

    The speakers are there. They are very tinny and don’t have a lot of power. I had them at max volume and could talk over them. They are acceptable for limited use, but I would absolutely recommend a headset.

    The webcam does a nice job overall. My GF’s daughter loves to Skype her grandma, so she was thrilled to use the webcam. It does a nice job overall. You do need to stay in a well lit room as it starts to get grainy in low light. The dual mics pick up your voice well, and don’t do too bad with background noise in general.

    Other Thoughts

    So this is my first time running across Windows 10 S. I had honestly never heard of it. It serves as sort of a stripped down Windows experience that is optimized for security and speed. You can’t install 3rd party apps – you can only install apps available in the Microsoft store. Edge is the only browser and it defaults to safe search. The OS appears to have been optimized for lower spec’d systems – I mimicked this experience on my old netbook with a cracked stripped down Win7 build, and it was absolutely the way to go back then. So hopefully Win10 S does the same job of removing some of the system overhead to keep things snappy. If you don’t want or need this protection you can always upgrade (for free) to plain Win10 Home Edition, but you won’t be able to go back once you upgrade.

    Overall

    As an adult with a gaming PC, gaming laptops, a workstation class laptop I can say I am not really the target for this PC. However, I do see the value in a machine like this for a quick runabout or travelling. It is very easy to transport. Where it really shines is with the kids. My GF’s daughter loved it and it didn’t even occur that it was a lightly spec’d machine. She loves getting to use it. As a parent I really like the baked in Office 365 sub, and the walled garden that is Win 10 S. I personally would upgrade it to Home but only because I don’t need those barriers. The only drawbacks I really saw were with the display panel and the speakers. They were the only somewhat underwhelming aspects. Everything else seems great though.

    Daily Driver for the Kids, Family

    The Geo 120 laptop is catered for those looking to perform basic tasks or those who need to run non-demanding Windows applications, all on a budget. The Intel Celeron Dual Core N4020 processor can handle most jobs, but it will definitely feel sluggish overall if you’ve got something much faster at home. This is due to the eMMC storage that performs slightly better than an traditional 7200rpm HDD, but helps keep the overall dollar costs down for the laptop. I think the price vs performance is perfect for our kids in school that are starting to dig into Word or staying connected to their classroom assignments online.

    Although advertised with 64GB eMMC, you’ll have around 25-30GB of usable space due to the Windows installation, so that’s something to think about if you have space requirements. Luckily, you can insert an additional max 64GB MicroSD card for more storage. The 4GB of RAM clearly highlights its weight class, which is to be the best at web browsing or streaming video content, but not all at once. As far as gaming, I was able to give Roblox a test drive, which is currently the game-of-choice for the kids at home. The UHD630 did struggle slightly with frame rates and input response, but it was still playable. Battery life lasted about 7-8 hours under normal basic use.

    There’s a lot to enjoy about this laptop. The keys are very large and tactile and there is just the right amount of “click” with each key press. I like the omission of the touchpad left/right buttons as it is integrated within the touchpad itself. This gives you more touchpad real estate. The screen’s hinge is strong enough to keep it from drooping during sudden movements or adjustments. 1366x768p is a great choice of resolution for a 12.5” screen and also helps increase battery life. The laptop will get a little warm during heavy loads (playing Roblox, for example), but it didn’t bother me. The laptop is very quiet due to its passive cooling method (no fans). The baby-blue color just speaks to the kids! I especially loved that I could charge the laptop (with a laptop-rated charger) through the USB-C port, which means I don’t have to carry it’s proprietary charger around when I travel with it. The front-facing camera is perfect for Zoom calls and the sound output is adequate. It’s lightweight at 3lbs and less than ¾ inch thick when closed.

    There are a couple of things that I wish this laptop had. For one, it would have been nice to have a backlit keyboard. Second, I wish I could upgrade the eMMC storage to an NVMe drive as this would surely give this machine a performance boost. For me, the touchpad doesn’t perform well during small, precise movements. I felt like it lagged or drifted on its own when performing these small adjustments. Also, I am concerned about its durability since its outer shell is entirely made of plastic. I didn’t knock off points for its overall performance because at its price point, it’s actually doing a heck of a job. Lastly, the laptop comes configured in “S” mode, which locks the laptop down to Microsoft approved software, but you can easily switch out of this mode if you choose to do so. I switched out so I could install Chrome Browser.

    I’ve honestly never heard of Geo Computers until I saw this laptop. After visiting their website, I’ve learned that Geo Computers are the largest UK-based supplier of OEM devices. They are part of the Tactus Group and are winners of the 2021 Microsoft Device Partner of the Year Award. And so they grace us with their Geo 120 to compete in the very heavy entry-level laptop class, and it really doesn’t disappoint at its price point.

    Impressive Value

    The GeoBook 120 is quite an impressive value - especially considering that it comes with 1 year of Microsoft 365 Personal which costs $70 on its own. The GeoBook does not have the streamlined simplicity of a Chromebook, but instead manages to provide a more full featured windows experience at an incredibly low cost.

    The physical build does feel rather plastic and cheap but it functions well and is truly able to meet the entry level needs of most young students. Researching on the internet, word processing, spreadsheet creation, watching Youtube, using Netflix, Video chat, and even very light gaming all work well. The battery will play video for over 3 hours and will allow over 5 hours of web browsing or word processing.

    It is important to note that the GeoBook runs Windows 10 Home in S Mode. This means that only applications from the Microsoft store will download and run on the laptop - which actually improves security of the laptop. The laptop also does NOT have a graphics card, so the GeoBook should NOT be purchased for gaming. BUT, my 7 year old son was thrilled to discover that the computer is able to run Roblox reasonably well.

    The GeoBook comes with about 24 gigabytes of remaining harddrive space, but does have a MicroSD slot that allows up to 64 gigs of extra space. The keyboard feels cheep and rather clunky, but works appropriately. The laptop has a built-in camera, but it is only 2MB and it does not have a physical shutter cover to block the camera. If you are concerned about the security of a camera being pointed at your child every time the laptop is open, you may want to buy a 3rd party cover for the webcam. Also, be aware that the video output is Mini HDMI - so you will need a special cable to output the video to a 2nd monitor.

    Overall I am impressed with the value of the GeoBook and would definitely recommend it to those who want a low cost, but nearly full featured laptop.

    A great affordable notebook for kids!

    My wife and I wanted to find a laptop that was geared specifically toward low-end, very simple tasks, that we could let our kids have for at home learning. Specifically, they have internet games they can play that help them work on various school subjects. We have other computers, laptops, tablets, etc. at home but most of them are "ours" as parents or are used solely for fun.

    This GeoBook from Geo has been helped fill this role very well. Our kids were SUPER excited to get a laptop "just like yours dad". They are very excited about being able to do things like ABCmouse, Prodigy, etc. and we're happy to have an option that doesn't take up our work computers.

    The notebook itself has some fantastic features for the price, the 64GB of memory is way more than they'll ever use doing what they're doing, the 4 GB of RAM is plenty for light work and internet tasks, the 12.5" screen is a great size for them as well.

    I must say though, the screen itself leaves a lot to be desired. The 768p resolution is actually really good on such a small screen but the colors are extremely washed out and viewing angles, especially vertical, are pretty bad. I've posted a pic for comparison. That said, our kids didn't care, they don't care about things like color accuracy, viewing angles, off axis color shift, etc. They just don't.

    Other than the sub-par screen, this has been a great tool for our kids and we're excited they'll have something that they can own and will be a tool they can use to help them learn at home.

    Awesome 1st computer

    What an adorable 1st laptop for my nephew. I fell in love with the color and size of this laptop. It’s compact and lightweight. Perfect to carry to school if needed. I bought it more for the aesthetics but this little guy packs a punch. With a free 12 month MS 365 software it was a no brainer. I opened it and gave it a test run. It was easy to use. I recommend this laptop for a child’s (and adult) needs.

    The Ultra-Portable Laptop!

    Disclosure: Reviewers in this invitation-only program are provided products for the purpose of writing honest, unbiased reviews. Everything in this review is what I experienced while testing the product. Microsoft nor Best Buy had any input in this review.

    Any college students out there looking for a new laptop? Or maybe a laptop for your grandparents or child? This laptop may be for them or you! Microsoft ‘s Surface Laptop Go is built for the basics but for many, that is all that is needed. The Surface Go provides ultra portability like no other and has some interesting features and design choices that may make this your new laptop.

    =====================================

    DESIGN:

    The Surface Go is beautifully designed. The sleek style, ice blue matte finish adds a sense of quality to this laptop. My favorite parts of the Surface Go are the keyboard and trackpad. The keys are smooth to the touch and quiet. So, for those people who stay up all night typing, you won’t have to worry about anyone hearing all your typing! The trackpad is also smooth to the touch and large, but I found the large trackpad a great design choice as it adds more space to play around with. Unfortunately, the keyboard is not backlit so be ready to have the lights on when typing in the dark.

    The Surface Go has a 12.4-inch screen that isn’t the best quality but is fair at this price point. The bezels are thin which I found enhanced the viewing experience for all my media. I found the Surface Go to be extremely portable and lightweight. Only 2.5 Pounds! I placed this in my backpack and could barely feel any weight on my back compared to other laptops. The charger also was easily portable and small. Most laptops have large chargers but this one was small enough where it could easily fit in a bag. The charger is a typical Surface charger where there is a magnetic charge connector that easily snaps onto the charging port. I’m a big fan of USB-C charging and this laptop also supports USB-C charging but hopefully, Microsoft continues with this design as I like how the cable doesn’t stick out compared to other chargers.

    =====================================

    PERFORMANCE:

    The Surface Go can be customized with different sizes of RAM and storage. This unit came with 8GB of RAM and 256 GB SSD storage. The SSD allows for a faster boot-up time and quicker performance. I mentioned that this laptop is for the basics, these specs are not for AAA games or the 3D rendering of models but rather for basic word processing, media consumption, light gaming, and other tasks that don’t require a lot of power. I have used the Surface Go for a couple of days now, and it has performed extremely well with the tasks I have put it through.

    I’ve used it for word processing, watching online lectures, typing up notes, media consumption, and even some Minecraft. I had no problems running these tasks while using the laptop. I did place the Surface Go to a test by purposely have dozens of tabs open in my browser while running other memory heavy programs and the laptop’s fans did end up going crazy but besides that, a normal user shouldn’t have any problems running their programs on here. I was surprised that the Surface Go ran games smoothly. Of course, these won’t be heavy games, but games such as Minecraft or Among Us the Surface Go should be able to run these well.

    The battery life of the Surface Go depends on what you are doing with it. Microsoft claims 13 hours of battery life. I was a bit disappointed as I could not get this much out of the laptop most days. Granted, I had my brightness almost at max and had multiple tabs and programs open most of the time, so the 13 hours of battery life was unlikely on my end. But if you are going to be doing light tasks on this, such as browsing the web or word processing, the battery life will likely last longer for you.

    =====================================

    FEATURES:

    The Surface Go comes with Windows 10 Home S Mode. S Mode is a limited version of Windows 10 that provides you with enhanced security and protection from malware. You won’t be able to download apps from the web and use other developing tools. You will only be allowed to install applications from the Microsoft Store. I am not a big fan of this but can see this being helpful for someone who doesn’t know much about computers and is susceptible to being hurt online such as an older person or a child. S Mode is optional, so I decided to switch to normal Windows 10 Home since I needed more functionality from Windows. Beware, this is a one-way process, so if you get out of S Mode you will not be able to get back into it again. I would have preferred a way to have a switch that enabled/disabled S Mode so if there are times when someone else needs to use the laptop, I can easily enable it for them.

    The laptop does have a touch screen; the screen works with display pens wonderfully. But it is a bit difficult to use since the display is upright and opening it completely up and drawing something on it isn’t probably the safest nor most comfortable. I felt Microsoft could have implemented a 2-in-1 with this laptop for a bit more cash.

    The Surface Go also has a fingerprint sign-in on the power button. It is quick and easy to use. It lights up letting you know when it is ready. A great design and user-friendly choice by Microsoft!

    =====================================

    CONCLUSION:

    Overall, if you are someone looking for a laptop that does the basics with ultra-portability in mind, I would recommend the Surface Go. The Surface Go is perfect for the average college student who needs it for homework or even your grandparent or child who has limited knowledge of operating a computer. This laptop is for them. The portability, sleek style, and performance are some of the reasons to go with the Surface Go.

    Pros:

    -Beautiful design

    -Super lightweight

    -Extremely thin

    -Very portable

    -Long lasting battery life

    -Quick to charge

    -Fingerprint login works great

    -Setup with Cortana made everything very easy and simple

    Boy, this is one beautiful piece of hardware...

    My, this is a very small laptop. It is quite thin and light at a little less than 2.5 lbs. It can easily be handled in one hand –including opening the lid, which I totally appreciate. I received the “Platinum” color option, and I must say that previously this would not have been my color of choice, but once I looked at it, it’s hard not to truly admire it and be pleased with it. The lid and keyboard faceplate are made of aluminum and feel very premium and cool to the touch. The finish can attract some fingerprints, especially the reflective logo, but nothing a quick wipe-down won’t help. Interestingly, the bottom is made of plastic. Although I would’ve liked to have the entire body made of aluminum, the plastic seems of good quality and does not negatively affect the overall design. There are also some rubber feet for added stability. This is one laptop that can truly be used on top of one’s lap comfortably with no balance issues (or overheating).

    I have always liked Surface keyboards, and this is no exception. The keys have decent travel, are very quiet, responsive, and tactile. Although this is a small deck, there is good spacing which helped my typing accuracy. Unfortunately, there is no keyboard lighting, making it almost impossible for me to type in medium to dark conditions. There is also a power button that doubles as a fingerprint reader for signing in. I had to reset it a couple of times, but once I had it well set, it was always a breeze to sign in. The well-sized Windows precision trackpad feels smooth, is quite responsive, and clicky.

    The laptop features a USB-C port, which can be used for charging -no thunderbolt option though. I was glad to see a USB-A and a 3.5mm headphone jack on the left side. On the right side, we have the power connect port. It also features Wi-Fi 6 for future-proofing and 5.0 Bluetooth connectivity.

    Although the screen is only 12.4”, it has an aspect ratio of 3:2 and thin bezels, which make it seem much larger and is great for web surfing, writing emails, and typing documents. The screen can get moderately bright at 300 nits and the colors are very well represented and vibrant. However, I was a little disappointed that this has a resolution of only 1536 x 1024 (148 PPI) which is slightly less than 1080p. Also, if you are watching widescreen content, be prepared to see sizable bars on the top and bottom. Having said this, the screen, which features a full touch display, still looks amazing at normal viewing distances.

    The 720p camera is acceptable for video conferencing. However, one must have good lighting as it can get quite grainy in dark settings. The microphones are very, very good. They were able to pick my voice at a good 10ft clearly.

    This laptop can produce loud, clear sound. However, as with almost every laptop out there, there is really no bass. No surprise there.

    What about actual performance? I am happy to say that this particular model, which features a 10th Gen Intel® Core™ i5 processor (1035G1), with 8GB LPDDR4x RAM is very capable of handling some productivity projects, open a large number of tabs, and watch some videos all at the same time. Of course, I would not go and try to do video rendering, heavy photoshopping, or 3-D work on it. This is not what this laptop was designed for. I am using the default Windows 10 Home in S mode, which is a toned-down version that optimizes performance on this hardware. However, this can be changed to Windows Pro easily, should you need to install more demanding software. So far, I did not need to switch as I am enjoying this OS as is. This model also comes with a 248GB SSD, which is fast enough and gives me enough space for my productivity use. Sadly, this laptop cannot be upgraded in any way, so I would recommend considering that when choosing a model.

    Now, this laptop is not for gaming, in case anyone wants to know. While you can play some easy-going games, there is just not enough graphical and CPU power to do so. However, if you still want to play AAA titles on this laptop, you can always sign up for a gaming streaming service, which I was able to successfully do and enjoy.

    In the end, I am extremely impressed with Microsoft’s Surface Laptop Go. Although it can be a bit pricey, I would strongly recommend considering this specific tier model. The ultra-portability, gorgeous design, great screen, amazing keyboard, and build quality provides a great value for students, teachers, and people who like to move around the house or just like to work at your favorite coffee shop.

    FULL DISCLOSURE: I received this item for review at no cost to me from the invite-only Tech Insider Network Program and Best Buy. However, my honest opinions, experience, and recommendations expressed above are my own and in no way were influenced by this fact.

    Ultra-portable and ready for work

    Disclosure: Reviewers in this invitation-only program are provided products for the purpose of writing honest, unbiased reviews. This review is based on my own personal experiences with this product.

    Technology is always changing and now more than ever before, people find themselves in need of better computers. This amazing laptop from Microsoft has the power to provide support for students as well as business people while staying compact and having a sleek design.

    I want to start this review by saying that this computer is designed for basic productivity-style performance. It does have 8GB of RAM, which is enough to support video chatting and standard office-style tasks like word processing and mild design work, but it’s not enough to be efficient for a video editor or heavy graphic designer. That said, I found the Surface Laptop Go to be a very capable machine for basic activities.

    The design of this laptop is stunning. There are three color options for this laptop model - sandstone, platinum, and ice blue. I have the ice blue version. It’s a cool, sleek color that is subtle while still drawing attention. When its lid is closed, the laptop is very thin and compact. I’m used to a 15-inch laptop, but I frequently use a 12-inch tablet and my fiance uses a 13-inch laptop as her daily driver. At first glance, my initial response to its size was, “Wow, this is a small computer.” Once my fiance had it open and working on it, she didn’t have any complaints about its size. And again, if you are doing standard productivity-style tasks like answering emails, word processing, and even spreadsheet editing, the size is somewhat irrelevant. The keyboard has a very soft feel to it and it’s a joy to use. Keys are very well spaced out and I didn’t find myself mistyping much.

    This laptop was designed to be minimalistic. There are only four ports on it -- the charging port, one USB-C port, one USB-A port, and a headphone jack. Now even though the headphone jack is included, the laptop is Bluetooth capable so you can connect headphones in that way, too. The laptop is touch-screen compatible so you can operate it as a hybrid machine (tablet/laptop), but the screen does not fold flat against the back of the laptop. I find the hybrid operation quite helpful.

    The screen resolution is 1536 x 1024. It’s not a premium screen, but with this being a ‘basic’ level laptop, it’s more than ideal for this machine. I did quite a bit of typing and regular tasks on the laptop and never had a problem with clarity or visibility. One thing I’m not a big fan of with this laptop design-wise is the charger. It’s a two-part power cable and adapter. The cable has a proprietary connector that plugs into the laptop and it’s connected to a brick, which is similar in size to other laptop power adapters. Now, even though it comes with an enormous power adapter/cable since the laptop has a USB-C port, it can receive power through that port as well. I tested this out with a USB-C cable and wall adapter I had available and was able to charge the laptop.

    As far as performance goes, the laptop starts up very quickly and registers my fingerprint within about a second. I opted to work through a cloud-based word processor and didn’t have any issues with the laptop slowing down or being tripped up by that process. I opened up 9 tabs in my browser and had 9 streams of 4K video playing simultaneously while I was working on a document in another tab and I had my cloud-storage drive open in an 11th tab. The laptop did not seem to slow down at all. The Surface Laptop Go does come with Windows 10 installed in “S Mode.” This is really a sandboxed version of Windows 10 in my opinion. It gives you the operating system with limited functionality. It does not allow for external applications to be able to be installed. While this mode might be good for someone who does not understand the basics of how to keep your computer safe from outside downloads, it’s a little bit of a hassle to work with if you want to customize your experience at all. I wanted to download an alternative browser. I had to take the computer out of S Mode, which is a free process, but irreversible, in order to download that one program. This is just a feature that users should be aware of as they set-up their laptop.

    Battery life seems to be pretty strong. The specs of the machine state that a user should be able to get approximately 13 hours of activity out of the laptop when it’s got a full charge. I did not use the laptop for 13 hours straight, but after I made sure it had a full charge, I did find that after about 30 minutes, only 4% of the battery had been drained. That means that I was getting an average charging rate of around 0.13% per minute. When you use that charging rate and multiply it by 780 (13 hours converted to minutes), you get a total of 101.4. Now, that is of course slightly more than 100%, but it’s a close enough average that I can say that the 13-hour estimated battery life is accurate.

    One other thing I noticed while using the laptop was the heat collection on the bottom. I was using it on a flat surface and I noticed that while the laptop was plugged into a power source (either using the provided power cable/adapter or the USB-C cable), the bottom of the laptop near the hinge did get quite hot. The power button also gets quite warm. I think this is a charging issue though because when I started using the laptop unplugged, it was much cooler.

    The Surface Laptop Go is a very strong laptop for someone who needs an ultra-portable, performance-driven machine. It’s lightweight, very easy to travel with, and it has the power to complete most standard tasks. I can recommend this for most types of users (business, educational, or personal), but wouldn’t recommend it for creative professionals.

    Don't thinking about and buy it!

    The Microsoft Surface laptop is excatly what i was looking for my needs. Easy to carry it around beacuse of the light weight. It is thing so it fit in my bag perfectly. I can use while i am ridding the train , at the office and the collage. The battery life is amazing. It last for more than 20 hours. I dont have to worry charging it often. I can be any where and if i have internet i get a fast connection. I am very happy with it and i could not have made a better choice. Its amazing and i love it.

    Beautiful laptop with excellent functionality

    We bought this laptop for our 12 year old daughter for Christmas. My husband was set on this laptop because of the Microsoft brand , the memory space and lastly the look. He wanted something for her that had great functionality first but also felt young and hip for her. This laptop is something that corporate America operates with so why not get her started at an early age . The laptop is light weight , with a nice sleek keyboard and mouse pad . The color of the laptop is beautiful , looks like a rose gold color even though that’s not the name of the color. The charger is magnetic and is easy to attach. The screen is a touch screen and is very sleek. She’s had it 2 days only but so far it excellent. Would highly recommend this to others.

    Not the computer for me

    The Microsoft Surface 4 was just not the right computer for me nor did I feel that it justified the $1,381 price tag. I watched dozens of videos on YouTube while contemplating the decision to purchase this brand over other laptop brands. What initially made me make the purchase this laptop was factors such as the touch screen feature and it came in 15inches which I was used to as an HP user. Also, the surface 3 options without the Alcantara fabric were sold out. I had always used HP’s in the past so I wanted to try something different. Outside of those two functions, the surface 4 didn’t look spectacular by design and it didn’t give me that wow factor for what I paid. I ended up purchasing the Lenovo Yoga which I really love and it was cheaper than the Microsoft.

    The most satisfying and useful Surface I've owned!

    This computer is a true jack of all trades, and I'd say it is a master at one thing for sure - getting things done.

    I've been off and on with Surface products since the line first began. I've had Surface Pros, I had the Surface Go once, I even had one of the older Surface Laptop models at one point.

    In my personal opinion, as a busy guy who does content creation, consumption, and straight up traditional, old-fashioned work on his computer, this is the best Surface product Microsoft has ever made.

    This thing feels incredible. The keyboard is great, the track pad is REALLY great, the body just feels incredibly sturdy, the screen is gorgeous - there is really very little negative to even say about this product. The different screen modes are all quite useful and well-executed, and I love the way the Surface Pen 2 just sticks up in there. It's so simple but brilliant, I think it's personally the best implementation yet of pen storage because although yes, it's somewhat exposed, it's extremely quick and easy to retrieve it if you suddenly need to use it in an instant.

    Perhaps the only negative points I could mention are these, and both are what I would consider minor.

    1. Ports *might* be considered lacking by some. It's personally not a huge deal for me, but I know there have already been a couple of times - mainly when working with peripherals - that it would have been nice to have at least one USB-A port. USB-C is the future, no question, but there are still devices you will use with your computer, especially in an office or school environment - that will call for USB-A. It's easily solved by the couple of multi-function dongles I have, but it's always nice to not have to carry something extra around. I know some people might groan about the lack of SD card ports, too, but to be quite honest, in this day and age, cloud storage is what I use for most things and if I have to plug in a card, I will most likely have my camera with me, in which case I will be carrying around the dongle for that.

    2. Now, I personally don't feel that this computer is *lacking* in power, for most tasks. I have been able to edit photos, edit videos, work with dozens of Chrome tabs, use office software, watch high-resolution videos, etc., without a hitch. But occasionally you notice a bit of minor sluggishness in transitioning between applications or doing things that involve different apps or programs working together to complete something. But I think it's more that FOR THE PRICE you are paying, you could very easily get a more powerful machine. ...However, that means that you'd be sacrificing the brilliant engineering and design functionality that leads to the utter brilliance of the total package of this machine.

    THAT is what you're paying for. Yes, you could get a computer that outdoes this one for what you're paying. But it wouldn't be able to offer what this computer offers while still giving you enough muscle to get you through the tasks at hand.

    Highly recommended, and I'm glad Microsoft had the guts to proudly release this product.

    Great Successor to the Surface Book

    I really like this laptop. Very premium feel, fast, and to me, beautiful. I also love the versatility of it. I'm a big fan of the Surface Book and I'm sad to see it go, but I think this is a great successor to it. This thing is so quiet, stays warm and performs well. It does however have a little weight to it it you want to hold it as tablet, it's best to place it on a flat surface or your lap if you plan to us it in that position. The screen is somewhat more reflective than I'd like. Battery life is pretty good, unless you're doing extreme editing. Overall this is a great product all around, I'm glad I purchased it.

    Weird battery.

    Good computer. The battery is really weird, it says 10 hours of time when fully charger. Unplug it then it drops to 6 hours, start using it and it drops to 9 hours. Keep working it will say 4 hours.

    I havent had any issues using it, the battery performance estimates are just way off.

    Good but horrible power cord

    I just picked this up and everything was easy to set up. The computer is light and quiet and I really like the feel of the soft textured keys. One thing that is horrible (and really unacceptable these days) is the power cord. The plug is ridiculously HUGE, see photo. There is no reason for this to be this big. And the cord is really, really short. Almost 1/3 shorter than my previous HP cord. Other than that, so far so good.

    Get this Laptop

    This laptop is a perfect mid tier PC for the money. My wife has had a great boost in the performance of her most used tasks and programs. The SSD makes windows nice and snappy and when a 2nd monitor is attached it doesn't skip a beat. isn't great with some game titles but the ones we play the most have been great.. (halo MCC was one of them). Get this PC.

    Love Love

    I first heard about this computer on you tube from the deal guy last xmass it had a great review and a even better price. I bought one for my grandaughter and it was perfect. I then had to buy another computer for me because the one had was just horrible slow , slughish and outdated. I decided to get this one for me because of all the specs and the price. It does not disappoint the only one thing I did not like is the charger is a block charger like a Apple charger and the cord was so short. I bought a

    Insignia™ - Universal 65W Laptop Charger - Black , and it is perfect now. If you just do what I do emails, youtube and nothing major , this is a great computer oh it is not touch screen I love that , I hated my touchscreen computer.

    Nice computer that almost met all my expectations

    Needed a Windows machine for some automotive diagnostic software. On paper this one looked to do the trick and so far its performing as anticipated. The large screen and number pad are awesome, and as a plus it runs SketchUp Free without a problem, so now I have a decent computer to use in the garage for design work. It lost a star because the Specs say it has an Aluminum Casing and that is NOT the case, its plastic. Minorly disappointed with that fact since it was a deciding factor, but hopefully the plastic will hold up.

    Best Bang for the Buck! Pros are way over Cons!

    MSI has the best gaming laptops around.

    Pros -

    1) 17-inch Laptop in a 15-inch body.

    2) Intel Core i9 11900H, RTX 3070, Phison 1TB NVME SSD, and Samsung 2 x 16GB DDR4 3200MHz SODIMM PC4-25600 CL22 2Rx8 RAM destroy the competition at this price point.

    3) Very professional appearance for a gaming laptop.

    4) Lightweight for its size and build quality.

    5) Has a full-size keyboard with a large trackpad.

    6) Super low profile design with tiny bezels.

    7) Thunderbolt 4

    Cons-

    1) Runs pretty hot. The CPU can hit 95C pretty easy and the GPU runs at about 75C.

    2) Terrible battery life, but it is a desktop replacement, meaning it is expected to be plugged in most of the time.

    3) Very temperamental fans.

    4) The display is quite flimsy and light bleed can be bad.

    5) Only two M.2 NVME slots vs the 2 NVME and 1 SATA M.2 on the GS75.

    Conclusion -

    There isn't much competition at this price point, especially in 17-Inch models. I love having a full-size keyboard and a large screen. Even with the issues, this is my third MSI GS Series laptop because it's a great overall product. MSI makes a great product!

    A great option, fast, and of great quality

    If you are looking for a fast, high-quality computer with a good design, and at a fair price, this is your best option, since it not only runs all the programs that are opened quickly and efficiently (some of which are very heavy because they are focused on 3D engineering design), but it is also very comfortable to use, since the size and definition of the screen helps not to have to strain your eyes, it has a very ergonomic keyboard and mouse pad that are easily adjusted In the hands of the user, it is very easy to transport because for its large size it has a light weight, and it is also important to mention that its stylish design and luminous keyboard, which allows you to choose the color of the keys, make it very beautiful to look at .

    If you are working or studying a career that requires the use of very heavy programs (such as engineering in my case), I fully recommend it, because it is the best computer I have had so far.

    Completely Satisifed

    Straight out of the box, the MSI GS76 setup was easy and quick plus it performed wonderfully. The 8Gb graphics memory as well as 32Gb system RAM made it possible to run graphics intensive applications quickly with no lagging or freezing. I would recommend the MSI GS76 to anyone looking for a development laptop to take on the road.

    Read before you buy!

    I had high expectations for this product but there are some points that made me disappointed. First, the overall design and keyboard is not good, buttons especially on/off buttons and texts are weird. Second, this pc gets really hot, i bought a cooling pad for this, i dont even play games, talking about zoom sessions. Third, sometimes the screen gets weird, gets pixellated and sometimes freezes. Fourth, the screen has low brightness than i expected. I would return it if i did not need this because of my heavy schedule at school. Besides these points, it is good in performance and came with a good packaging. However, i do not highly recommend this laptop. As you research, you will see that you cant find this product in many shops, i think because of these drawbacks.

    Great laptop, semi ok support.

    Prior to the GS76, I owned an MSI GS65. I loved that laptop, though it got a bit warm and loud sometimes. This GS76 is almost better in every way: Its battery life is longer, provided you utilize the profiles. It boots up rapidly and add the 2nd storage drive is super easy. The keyboard is fine and doesn't take too long to get used to. I've been using it primarily to run several VMs with some gaming on the side and it has been great.

    However, I did end up with one working speaker. Opening a ticket, they wanted to do a full RMA process to fix it, even though the replacement speakers are simple to fix. As I needed the laptop for the near future and did not want to go a month+ without it, I did not opt for that. I plan to use headsets for most of the time. So I can't speak for the audio quality.

    Perfect option for on the “Go” usage

    Best purchase I’ve made in a while. I was debating on the Surface Go 2 versus Net Books and I’m glad I chose to go with this beauty. Once I took it off S mode it worked just as a laptop. Taking it off the unwanted S mode to many user was extremely easy to do so. Since I’ve had zero issues on downloading apps and been able to use a Military CAC reader for my travels and at home usage.

    Don't waste your money

    Would give it 0 stars if possible. 1st one camera stopped working and had to disable to boot up. Only 3 months old and had to accept a refurbished unit as replacement. That one failed immediately (screen was upside down when rotated 90 degrees)... yet another refurbished unit showed up to have the exact same problem (even during the initial setup)... screen upside down when turned 90 degrees.

    Windows 10 S will not let you install software

    Buyer beware.

    YOU CANNOT INSTALL ANY THIRD PARTY SOFTWARE.

    Windows 10 S is not a normal Windows Operating system. I saw "Windows" and just assumed this Surface Go would work like every other Windows computer I have owned. This is not the case. Windows 10 S is NOT normal Windows.

    This includes other browsers and EVEN TITLES from Microsoft themselves. Windows Journal from Microsoft.com will not install from their website.

    Only an upgrade to Windows PRO is the only answer.

    QUOTE FROM MICROSOFT Website

    My Windows 10 S PC won't install some apps. Is that normal?

    If you have a Windows 10 PC running Windows 10 S (such as a Surface Laptop), you may notice that it won't install apps from outside the Microsoft Store. Don't worry—that's the way we designed it.

    By exclusively running apps from the Microsoft Store, Windows 10 S helps keep your PC running fast and secure and provides peace of mind by removing the risks that come with downloading apps from other places.

    Great deal for $150

    This laptop is amazing to deal for $150 I wouldn't pay full price however I mainly got this to do school work but due to this laptop having google play and a touch screen I can actually use discord and play light games. Light video editing etc. I can actually send text messages from my Chromebook and use Facebook messenger as well. My only complaint is the sound isn't amazing but I can live with that for the price. It's defiantly worth a little extra to pick this up compared to a smaller cheaper Chromebook as you can actually see what you're doing with the larger display lol. It's not the end of the world but it does have Linux for advanced users however it doesn't support x86 applications as it has an arm CPU so you cant install steam etc. Most of the time there's an android app that will do the tho job. Since there is an arm CPU it has better android support than an intel based Chromebook. The battery life is way better than any other laptop I have used due to how power efficient the CPU is. Lenovo has really changed my View on chromebooks.

    Excellent chromebook AND value when on sale!

    As the title suggests, this chrome book is an excellent value when on sale. If you are paying full price ($319 USD) I would consider a different chrome book as there are better options in that price range. I bought this on sale for 189.

    This review is for mode 82KN0001US (the touch screen mode). It runs as smooth as butter for your basic internet browsing and movie/Streaming needs. It comes with the mediatek 8183 processor which is what you would want at this price range. Added bonus is the 64gb eMMC vs 32gb which pretty much all other chrome books at this price range with a touch screen have. Also note it’s a 14” screen vs 11” screens at this price point.

    Multiple browsing tabs don’t slow this machine down. It’s a matte touch screen so it does well in bright rooms and helps to avoid smudge marks. Even viewing off center (see image) isn’t bad. Sound is great when watching by yourself - would def get drowned out in a classroom like setting with everyone chatting. Touch pad is slightly flimsy and can seem a little inaccurate at times but it’s not a deal breaker. I bought this for my grade school girls to practice their iReady tests / get used to laptops / virtual homework on seesaw / and for other basic computing.

    If spread sheets are your thing; I would not rec this as the system does slow down. Even using Google docs for excel; just scrolling down the excel sheet got me frustrated due to the “lag.”

    Picture editing beyond cropping / rotating / red eye auto removal would probably be too much for this.

    Would I buy this again? Yes for the sale price. Do not buy this if you think it will replace your work desktop or work laptop where you using MS office suite regularly. It’s really a basic machine that does all the basics perfectly.

    Not a normal laptop

    Simple to use Chromebook to meet the demands I need out of a computer for school.

    Too many reviews complain this isn’t like the laptops they are used to using. For those not familiar with Chromebooks, they are not like a normal laptop, like a Windows computer or MacBook. Think of it more like an Android phone, you download apps to use on it and not programs. It uses Google Drive cloud storage. If you need a Windows laptop get one, however, if you need something that works similar to your phone and not needing to save stuff to the computer itself get a Chromebook.

    Good choice for the price

    I've been using this laptop for a little over a month, and it's totally fine for what it is, which is just basic web browsing and light office work. I've used it for Google Duo calls and it works great for that. The speakers are loud and fairly clear. Apps like Netflix and Hulu run just fine. The web browser part can be a little slow at times, having several tabs open at the same time shows some slowdown but nothing too bad. Overall for the price it's well worth it as a secondary device or for light reading at the coffee shop. Battery life is good, I get several hours of use without even looking at the battery indicator, with full brightness on. Display is great, touchscreen works well and the 1080p resolution is a definite plus over others.

    Inexpensive student option

    Bought this for my son to take to school for 3rd grade and it's perfect. Runs everything the school requires and it has a killer battery. This morning, just before going to school, we realized the laptop had not been charged all weekend. Still, the battery was at 96%. No worries about losing power during school. Also, the touchscreen is a real plus! When my son is working on math problems or fill-in-the-blanks, the touch screen option is much easier than tabbing around or finding the right spot with the mouse. An excellent item for value and function.

    Pleasantly surprised!

    After purchasing a Lenovo Chromebook with a shocking amount of problems (YouTube videos wouldn’t play, audio would turn itself up randomly, I couldn’t access the Google Play store, and it was slow as hell), I was hesitant to buy from Lenovo again. I got suckered into buying this one for that sweet, sweet black Friday discount, and I am pleasantly surprised! Maybe it’s because I’ve been stuck with a 3 year old computer for so long, but this Chromebook feels lightning fast. The battery lasts an eternity, the screen is crystal clear, and the whole computer just FEELS nice, smooth, and crisp. Great computer, would recommend!

    Love Chromebooks

    This is my 6th Chromebook. I also have a 10" Lenovo with a detachable keyboard. I use the spreadsheet and the word processor extensively for personal reasons. The only program I miss is Photoshop but the free version of Pixlr fills in nicely. I would recommend a Chromebook for probably the majority of computer users who are not professional geeks or need something that allows installed programs.

    End of support is June 2024

    The Chromebook itself has been ok this far. What I am disappointed in is that according to the model 11a-nb0013dx listed here and also on the box the Chromebook comes in, the Google end-of-support date "should be" June of 2028. Even HP has responded in other comments stating that is the case. However, when you actually power on your laptop, you will notice it is an HP Chromebook 11 G6 EE version which will stop receiving updates in June of 2024. So in 2.5 years from now I will need to buy another computer. That being said I did a cost analysis and what the the current $119 sale price of this laptop, it is costing me ~$47 a year. The other laptops that do actually come with updates through 2028 or 2029 were around $500+. So the per year cost is more. I was going to return this HP but decided I will keep it. Just inconvenient that I have to do this again in less than 3 years.

    Chromebook

    It’s small, lightweight, works very well, compatible with my phone and tablet. Was very easy to transfer files and connect to all my apps. I just love this chrome book should have bought it sooner.

    Great budget Chromebook but buy a cooling pad

    Picked this up on sale, great deal for $169. Needed it mainly for long Zoom meetings, also use it for some browsing & streaming. Be warned that it does heat up quite a bit after running for awhile, a little uncomfortable on the lap when it does. I solved this issue with a $20 Aluratek cooling pad from Best Buy, I left a review on that as well (BUY IT, works great and runs quiet). Screen quality could be better, need to look at it straight on for best view. But it's a budget Chromebook so I wasn't expecting to be wowed by the screen. As far as the size of the screen, it works fine for me and it makes it quite portable. Very lightweight. When in Zoom and swiping to where I see all the participants on video as well as myself, quality looks pretty good, I sit about 4 feet away generally and microphone seems to pick up my voice just fine. Chrome software and security updates are supported until June 2024, big plus for me. Comes with Google Perks too when you activate it, I got 3 months free of Disney+, Doom & Doom II free and free 30 day premium subscription to Calm app (there are other Perks as well but those are the ones I went with). Speakers ain't too shabby but again it's a budget Chromebook so don't expect to be wowed but they do the job for me. I love having so many ports, I can have my phone plugged into one USB C port while I use the other one to charge it, can access files on a thumb drive using one of the USB 3.0 ports as well as off of a microSD card, have headphones plugged into 3.5mm jack if I'm not using the Bluetooth while also having the cooling pad plugged into the other USB 3.0 port (which actually has a port on the plug so you don't lose access to it). All of this at the same time! Have to use WiFi as there is no ethernet port but haven't had any issues with it disconnecting, I live in a small apartment though so I'm never far from the router so can't speak on it cutting out in room in a house that's a ways away from the router. Trackpad is a little slow but easily fixed that with adjusting the speed in the settings. Overall, a great purchase if you're looking for something simple. Only major con as I mentioned is that it heats up but the cheap cooling pad fixed that. At regular MSRP of $219 some people may be willing to shell out a little more dough for a better model but when it goes on sale again, don't pass up the deal. Highly recommend.

    Lenovo review.

    My previous laptop was OLD. The Lenovo laptop I bought is like a breath of fresh air. The keyboard is great with rubber coating on the keys. The on and off notice light is something I love. I am mostly an old lady user who just pays bills, speaks with relatives and orders a few things online. Don't do social media. My husband set everything up for me and after a few small problems, I'm very happy with my unit.

    Good laptop

    Reason for 4 stars? 5 stars requires more than most products have to offer. My 4 stars means the following. Everything any normal laptop user would need. Quick response, adequate storage and display. Keyboard is good. For 80% of users, this laptop will meet and/or exceed their requirements. Don't let the battery inside the case bother you. It can be easily replaced without having to send it in to Lenovo. Remove the back of the case (10 screws) and battery is accessible. Check out YouTube videos. It's a good laptop, folks.

    I like it! Sleek & a nice upgrade for our cnc.

    My husband & I got this new Lenovo when we made a previous purchase on a used one a little different from this one, it worked well.. for 1 week then the screen blacked out so luckily it was within the 14 day return timeline & decided to go with a brand new one mainly because the sales lady but over all we are very happy with our choice to upgrade & have not had any issues thus far.. with this laptop. fast. tons of storage & a great display. I got it on sale and because I bought total tech i also got a 100$ discount on it.. that was pretty cool ! We live in the country so we have (limited) unlimited speed once gb are ate up on satellite internet but havent noticed any lag with the new Lenovo and it came with the windows 11 upgrade & I just love the almond color ! We bought a cnc machine a shapeoko XXL & that’s the primary use for this new one. So far, so good. Thx BB !

    CBs aren't anything special, neither is this one.

    First off, Best Buy is horrible at packing things up. Mine arrived with barely any tape left holding it closed. Tape that was the extremely cheap paper kind. It also was only padded on ONE side. Luckily, the tiny laptop arrived undamaged. Regardless, this sort of thing is unacceptable.

    As for the Chromebook, it's ok. Don't expect to do much more than you can on a mid range budget phone, because that's basically what a Chromebook is. Just a phone made to look like a laptop.

    It does what I need to do. I bought it for storing text/pdf/etc files for work and using the internet.

    The amount of storage is awful on these, and mostly ALL Chromebooks. Luckily you can extend the storage via an SD card or USB drive. Just make sure either is formatted to ExFat or Fat32 otherwise it can't read it.

    The screen is less than mediocre, but again, gets the job done for what I need it for.

    The wifi card is really bad. It drops signal easily if you stray even a reasonable amount away from your router.

    Nothing is upgradeable. You're stuck with the soldered RAM and flash memory it comes with.

    Also, Google like forcing people to keep buying more and more, so all Chromebooks have an end date attached as to when they'll stop giving them updates. You can still use it of course, but it'll never be up to date again.

    Lastly, mine came with Windows Vista on it, which isn't even possible. I was going to send it back but I easily removed it.

    Everyday use

    We purchased this for our cousin who was in need of a new daily-driver. She reported that the laptop was everything she needs.

    Since she is in a tough spot the laptop has been able to meet her ‘every-need.’ She can watch Netflix, browse the web for jobs, check her email, and take it with her on-the-go, of course in case she needs to go from one place to the next.

    She brought it during our Thanksgiving gathering and she used it to pull up pictures she had in her Google Photos and we reminisced about the past. She easily connected the laptop to our Smart TV which I thought was neat. I know laptops have a sort of capability to do that, but the idea a small, low-power entry-level processing laptop streaming directly to the TV was what ‘Wowed’ me.

    Perfect for Alternative from traditional PC

    Picked this up during the Black Friday price and it was also an open box so that just added to more savings. This little computer does circles around my 4th gen i5. Setup was painless and connected seamlessly to my WiFi. I have access to productivity apps compatible with office apps thanks to google docs and sheets. Video playback from YouTube is pleasantly enjoyable as well. I didn’t want to be confined to the 11” screen so this little device will output to a bigger screen with a usb c to usb c / hdmi, display port or vga adapter. Amazon or Monoprice is good for this cable. The AMD A6 processor is powerful enough for some casual gaming / emulation. The Google Play Store allows you to download some A+ games and emulators too (Dolphin). I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for an alternative to a traditional pc and also any hobbyists who would like to experience chrome os too.

    Decent cheap chromebook - NOT FOR HOSTING ZOOM

    Decent little chromebook. The processor is a bit speedier than other chromebooks in this inexpensive price range; trackpad worked well, screen is not great, the 2 USB-A and 2 USB-C ports were appreciated so I could hook up an external microphone and USB-C to HDMI converter to display on a TV for zoom conferences. THE ZOOM APP FOR CHROME OS IS BAD. Features that are found on Zoom iOS and Win OS are missing - the main one being the ability to share audio when sharing a video. There is no "share audio" box when you share your screen. The only way that the folks on the zoom meeting will hear the audio is for it to play through the chromebook speakers and the microphone picks it up from there. The video sound stinks and if there is other noise in the room, it stinks even more. This was a deal breaker for me and I will be returning this Chromebook and purchasing a laptop.

    Chromebook/Lenovo is a good computer.

    This computer is AMAZING. I love it. Only have it for a few days now, and it's so fast, and the battery is good. Highly recommend it. I know its Chromebook, but its very good. Although, I don't know how to set up my Microsoft word system into it. Typing this review on my my Chromebook now! The only thing that sucks is that you can't put you're apps on the wallpaper if that makes sense. Maybe you can I just don't know how too. Anyways, have a nice day!

    A budget laptop with value for money.

    The laptop is good for basic work like online classes and surfing. The finish is nice and looks premium. Initial setup to come out of window 10 s mode is easy but essential to install third party softwares. Office 365 asks one to make a Microsoft or hotmail account which is a pain. It should have been like a standard sotwaee in the pc. The memory kn the laptop is very least almost like a phone but these days one doesn't need to save more data with more work in the cloud , google Drive etc. Just another sd card of 64 or 128 gb in the cars slot and you are good to go.

    Overall a good purchase and value for money.

    A budget laptop with value for money.

    The laptop is good for basic work like online classes and surfing. The finish is nice and looks premium. Initial setup to come out of window 10 s mode is easy but essential to install third party softwares. Office 365 asks one to make a Microsoft or hotmail account which is a pain. It should have been like a standard sotwaee in the pc. The memory kn the laptop is very least almost like a phone but these days one doesn't need to save more data with more work in the cloud , google Drive etc. Just another sd card of 64 or 128 gb in the cars slot and you are good to go.

    Overall a good purchase and value for money.

    Overall you get what you pay for. The laptop itself is a quality hp product, had to download intel driver support to update some drivers. Once I did the laptop runs smooth. No frames skipping

    Love it

    I love the color. The laptop functions pretty well but sometimes the keyboard has a glitch in random things pop up and disappear. But over all I’m satisfied. I bought it to have a smaller laptop to pay the sims on. It works great for the sims 4.

    Best laptop I've ever owned.

    Better than I expected....my kids want one over their 1,000.00 gaming laptop cause its light and slick with gaming capability....

    I get compliments all the time and they think its touch screen but its not... and I'm ok with that!!!

    If I wanted a tablet I'd get one with a keyboard. This laptop covers it all.....its amazing +!!!

    Great product! Sturdy construction, long battery

    This is a sturdy, durable laptop that gets the job done. Has an extremely long battery life. Screen holds itself in place so I may chase after my new house pet while still being able to do business at home during the pandemic.
