Just a word of caution, I just bought this laptop but it came with a 1TB HDD, I wanted to upgrade the HDD to a 2.5" SSD so I cloned the drive to a 2.5" 1TB Crucial SSD that I had, when I installed it, the laptop would not read the SSD.

I checked forums online and it turns out that it won't read anything over a 256GB SSD and some people even had trouble with that. The only way to upgrade to bigger storage was by using an NVMe SSD, which I didn't have and will probably buy now. It does have a NVMe slot inside

I would say this is a very good deal. I've been looking for a new laptop for my wife, and this one seems to be perfect so I just pulled the trigger and went with it.

Looks good at first glance but there's way more bang for your buck out there
Any examples? Almost bit on the lenovo 530s which was $450. Thinking about getting this one

I believe this is relative. I've seem other options with similar specs and slightly cheaper price, but you usually have to sacrifice in other areas.
This Swift 3 has all metal construction, light and thin, good battery, SSD, fingerprint reader and even a dedicated GPU, hard to beat for an all-around work/some play laptop. Just what my non-gamer wife needs.

This is the Ryzen 7 2700u, that was for the Ryzen 5 2500u, like comparing laptops with i5 u vs i7 u

Can you provide a link? I'm looking for a laptop and bang for the buck is what I'm after

2700U just to give it a discrete GPU? Weird flex, but okay.

Good deal, almost wish it DIDN'T have the 2GB RX540 in it though, kind of useless with a Vega 10 built in. Seems like it would just draw a little more power for no gain in real world performance really.

I think this is the deal I am waiting for! It will be for my wife for every day use with school and photo editing. No video editing. And I want it to have a nice display. I have very basic knowledge when it comes to laptops, will this fit my needs?
