The good thing about these laptops is that they're easily upgradable. I have the i3-7100U version. Check the Amazon reviews, but it looks like the internals are pretty similar for this 8th gen Intel version. It should have a free m.2 slot for an SSD/HDD combo. The 2GB RAM is basically throw away and you can buy a used 4GB DDR3L module on eBay for cheap for 8GB total memory.

Some more expensive upgrades is the screen. The screen that comes with it isn't very good. However it is easy to upgrade and I got a B156HAN01.2 midrange-ish IPS panel for $60. Sold the old panel for $30. I'd say the IPS screen upgrade on this is HUGE and makes it worth it. The low end IPS panels on the sub-$400 laptops that gets posted sometimes on SD are not as good as the B156HAN01.2. The aftermarket panel has much wider color gamut and higher brightness than the panels you see on the Dell Inspirons and Lenovo IdeaPads.

This is a really good deal at $310, I think it's the lowest it's ever been. I bought it at $350 a month ago. Very good, even with no upgrades. The i3 8th gen is a really impressive budget processor. Battery life is overstated, but still very good, 8-9 hours on a full charge. Screen has crappy colors and viewing angles, but for a $300-something laptop, it gets the job done. The touchpad is an all-in one setup where the right, left click, and slider are all one. It's a bit clumsy to use, but it's not a dealbreaker. The advantage is that it's probably more durable because it cuts out the use of 2 small individual plastic buttons.

Very little in the way of trash apps that need to be removed for smooth running. Basically turn off the windows live tiles and delete Norton anti-virus and use Windows Defender instead to run slightly smoother. Norton is only a 30 day trial anyway.

Solid deal - at least it isn't a 768 screen

Thanks, that is pretty interesting info. I wouldn't even think that third party screen replacements for a very specific laptop model can be better than the OEM panels. I guess they are not that specific at all. For smartphones, aftermarket screens are almost always crappier.

The screen is really actually the weakest link on this. Better to have 768p screen with vivid colors and sunny brightness than 1080p with washed out colors and mediocre brightness. You can technically get more screen real estate with 1080p, but you're not gonna be able to take advantage of that on a 15 inch screen unless you wear some serious reading glasses. I like this computer overall and think it's a good deal, but would definitely swap my last Lenovo's laptop 768 screen for this one.

edit: I was somewhat wrong about screen real estate, there is a tad more after you zoom to a practical view (default setting is very practical), but it's not much.

rare to find a 15.6" laptop at this price with a 1080P screen. I'm seriously considering getting it.

Are you trying to start WWIII? 😀
Thanks for posting. Your review of the base screen aligns right up with the previous comments... Your solution? Get ready for the cynics!

You're saving absolutely zero cash with that bundle. The WD Blue 250GB is $49.99 on Amazon, Newegg and various other stores. Would have been decent if the SSD was preinstalled, but it isn't.

Ahh ok, was trying to find the info to see if it was installed and OS transferred but seems you are right, might as well just get a bigger capacity size SSD for around the same price somewhere else.

Thanks!
