5/5
Full 512 ssd + 8gb ram, Fast , great value, fast charge, really good touchpad and all round good buy. would benefit from back light for the keypad. but hey. Well pleased. I use mainly at home so I don't care about thinness, portability or looks,I am looking at the screen. although I am impressed with that as well.

Top laptop, very fast.

5/5
This laptop is an excellent replacement for my small business’s ailing unit. It is very fast with excellent storage and very reasonable memory. I am well pleased my only gripe is no optical drive, but that seems to be the norm these days. I’d have no hesitation in recommending laptop.
