Actually at this budget, all Laptops coming with Full HD display are TN Panel. This is a pretty good Home laptop with moderate gaming performance as well. Also, it has an empty M.2 Slot which can be fitted with a SSD and that is a viable option due to the current reduced price of SSDs. Buy this and invest another $50 to $60 for a 256GB SSD and you will have a pretty fast laptop for almost every kind of workload.

I think this is a good deal, but "moderate gaming performance" is a bit of a stretch, in my opinion. I'd say more like "light gaming," considering many games will require low settings and 720p.

According the website it is 5.07 lbs not 4.07. That's a huge difference.

It has a Vega 8 iGPU which is better than the MX 150 , it'll be able to play games like league at 60 FPS.

That's incorrect. MX 150 is 64% faster in games.

lol you wish. not even close. another victim to AMD's scummy marketing. the fact that this doesn't have dual channel ram makes it even worse

This has Dual Channel Ram which I have explicitly mentioned in the Spec as well. And Vega 8 is not as powerful as MX150, it is in fact slightly below of GT 940MX GDDR5 version.
