I was a little apprehensive ordering this laptop due to the lack of enough reviews, and also from reviews from other tech sites. Some about the brightness of the screen, some about the quality of the RGB color gamut range, some about the "junk" included with the laptop.
I received the laptop fast with Amazon Prime, in very good packaging and good condition. Initial setting was a breeze, and immediately had a good feeling about the speed of the hardware/system. Once all windows updates were applied, I always go to control panel to remove all unwanted "junk". Surprised that there was not any at all. Pretty clean, and I did not have to remove anything. There was not MacAfee, nor other annoying trial versions of any programs. Only some Windows apps, mostly games, that it was easy to remove from the store. That was very good, and went on installing my own programs such as Office 2016, ACDsee photo suit, etc. No problems. The screen quality is pretty good, I did not get this laptop for photo editing, I do that on my desktop. As far as the screen brightness is concerned, people seem to not take under consideration that a good part of it is tide to the power plan used by the user. That is very easily changed under the notification panel on the right of the taskbar, where the brightness of the screen can be control to taste. Then you can have a much brighter screen. I am not sure that it will be bright enough for "interrogations", however is bright enough for me.
Bottom line, I am very pleased with the laptop. It's portability is a fun aspect of its use. It is a good looking laptop, and yes, so far I love it.
I would recommend this laptop for general and comfortable use. Please remember, it is not an $1,800.00 machine, but it is perfect for what was meant to be used on this price range, and a joy to use.
Additionally, it is upgradeable, so one will not have to pay that $1,800.00 price for more memory and larger storage capacity.
