I have this laptop, I bought it from Dell when it was on sale around Cyber Monday (although the one direct from Dell came with 8GB RAM).

With the HDD it feels crazy slow, although I'm used to a desktop with a Samsung 970 Pro for a boot drive so YMMV. I added an 8GB stick of RAM (which brought me to 12GB since the internet was wrong and it came with 2 x 4GB stock) and an XPG SX8200 M.2 SSD and now it flys. Cold boots in less than 6 seconds. Do your SSD and RAM upgrade at the same time, to replace either you've got to take off the entire bottom panel which requires removing about a dozen screws and using a spudger or credit card or whatever to pry off about a dozen little tabs around the keyboard bezel.

The screen is... fine. From dead on it looks good and it is FHD which is nice for the low price, but the colors wash out when you get a little off center. The build quality for a cheaper, plastic body laptop is actually pretty decent. I don't notice any flex and it feels pretty good to the touch. Keyboard is fine, not awful not spectacular. The trackpad uses Microsoft Precision drivers so it works well.

I bought this at Dell on black friday. Same specs except mine came with a DVD drive and 16GB of ram. Out of the box, it was ok. The hard drive slowed it down. I replaced the 1TB hard drive with a 500GB Samsung Evo SSD and now the laptop flies.

Yes it was a pain to remove the bottom plate. There's a bunch of screws. Then you have to pry open the top off the bottom with a credit card/gift card. There's a youtube video on this.

The specs are good. The AMD chip is equivalent of an 8th gen i5 and the Vega 8 integrated GPU is much faster than any integrated Intel GPU. I'd recommend upping the ram to at least 8GB and add a SSD.

This laptop has a free M.2 slot so the best option if you're adding an SSD is to buy an M.2 one, clone the HDD to the SSD, boot off the SSD, then format the HDD and use it for media storage or backing up the SSD or whatever. No need to buy an enclosure or anything.

4gb of ram is nowhere enough today. But you can upgrade for not too much more.

Pretty good deal considering the specs. This would work great for a school laptop for a student.

Can anyone educate me on what this means?

1TB 5400 RPM HDD + Empty M.2 2280 Slot (NVMe Support)


Is that like a slot where I can insert a 500GB SSD?

M.2 is more recent technology for data drives. You can put an m.2 drive in there which is much faster than SSD. But you can also find cheaper m.2 that are technically ssd's.

In my opinion it would be best if you planned to add a little more ram and maybe an ssd. Buying it to use as-is, especially for a younger, school aged user might not be an ideal experience.

Nice review. After your SSD upgrade, do you need to do a fresh windows install on the new SSD drive? Or the system is smart enough to know to always boot from the new, faster drive?

You can buy a cheap enclosure to put the SSD in, and use Macrium free cloning software to clone the SSD, then swap it out and use the old hard drive as a back up. See my amazon review:
