I agree, but the laptop has a ssd slot which you can pick up for under $100 on sale. Other than that everything else looks good specs wise for this laptop. After adding the SSD for under $850 with these specs and and having an SSD and HDD is a pretty good deal. It also has some good reviews from what I have seen on other review sites.

I get that it has no SSD pre-installed... I'm just wondering how they can possibly call it a "gaming" laptop without SSD. Or do most gamers install their own SSDs after purchase? Smilie

I have ran games on a normal HDD in the past with no problems. To me the SSD is more of a luxury but it does make things much faster when it is installed. I don't mind installing it since it is very easy to do, but I get that some people aren't comfortable doing it themselves.

It's painfully slow just having one of these 5,400 rpm hard drives booting Windows 10. Trying to run a modern game would take forever to get it started.

I got this one for $800 a couple of months ago and it has been an absolute dream. It boots up in less than 3 seconds. It's almost instant. Loads programs and handles multiple programs at once without a sweat. I love it! Not the prettiest but it's great!

Couldn't I just install a SSD into this one and it would be the same? How are you liking the computer besides boot up time?

Werd. Truth sets one free. And saves money.

SSD ain't be all that. Yes, it helps a lot in boot times. Why are people booting their computers all the time though, just make it go to sleep. Wakes up right away. Uses a tiny amt of power. Regardless, games do not necessarily take forever to load with a HD compared to a SSD. I just went through this. On my new gaming rig that came with a HD, I installed a SSD. For most games, load times didn't change much if at all. There are not disk bound. You can tell just by looking a the disk usage when the game is loading. If the disk usage isn't at 100%, a SSD won't matter. It's perfectly reasonable to run a computer with a modern HD. They are not slow. Especially when compared to the cheap SSDs made today. I benched my HD compared to two cheap SSDs that have been on SD a lot including the S700. Sequential speed is about 4X. Unfortunately that's not what file system disk usage is. Random speeds are butt on these SSDs. The burst rate on my HD is twice that on the SSDs. I'm really disappointed by these modern cheap SSDs. They are slower than my 8 year old SSD in another machine but that SSD cost some coin.

I like it a lot, I have no complaints about it. I haven't used it for gaming. On Reddit the real gamers complain a lot about the screen resolution being junk but for work, which is what I use it for it beats the competition. It has all the slots I need and more.

add 40 bucks to the price and you have an SSD and use a 7 dollar enclosure for this hard drive as a portable.

I'm thinking of buying this laptop soon. I was wondering if anyone thought the price would go down lower or if this is pretty much as low as I can expect? I've heard laptops are at their lowest price around the back to school season?
