I got one of these a few months ago for $50 more at Walmart.

The biggest downside is the screen. While having 1080p resolution, it is an older type of LCD technology that doesn't handles tasks like fast animation well. It's fine for work, adequate for video but for gaming that requires fast action it's just not very usable. There is an HDMI port and output to an external monitor looks fine. connecting to a hotel room TV allowed for far better gaming than anything using Intel video.

On the plus side, especially for such a low cost unit, there are two memory sockets supporting up to 32GB of DDR4 RAM. Many other machine in the same price range have memory soldered to the main board with only one expansion socket or none at all.

There is also an empty M.2 slot that will allow you to install an NVMe or SATA SSD. An NVMe drive for the OS and apps makes a HUGE difference in the experience of using this machine. The included hard drive is painfully slow by modern standards. While it would have been acceptable ten or more years ago to wait so long from pressing the power button to having a usable system, that now feels like the dark ages if you've become accustomed to systems with SSDs.

Unlike older systems, this model and most like it these days, is not designed to be upgraded easily. It's put together much like a phone or tablet. You can find videos on youTube on how to get to the innards for upgrading.

I went a bit over the top on mine because I had some credit to use up. I put in 16GB of RAM ($80), an HP 1TB M.2 NVMe SSD ($110), and replaced the existing hard drive with a 1TB SATA SSD ($100). The result was the most powerful laptop I've owned since my first in 1995 but also the least costly, by a very small margin over an earlier HP A6 based model. The only thing that this unit lacks by comparison is a DVD burner but the need to have that onboard nowadays is declining and no longer matters at all for many people. A USB DVD burner that can be plugged in as needed can be had for less than $30.

Although the screen is lousy for gaming, when attached to an external monitor this is the most powerful portable for gaming I've ever owned. You can pay a lot more to get a discrete GPU but that struck as a needles expense to have a time killer for overnight hotel stays during work travel.

Battery life is underwhelming, throttles, runs warm, and 4GB is very limiting. For $280 it's a speedy machine, but don't set your expectations too high.

This seems like a solid deal on a basic laptop. Throw in a cheap SSD, do a clean Windows 10 install like you would probably want to do once you take this out of the box anyway, and you're set.

Unless they teach C#, otherwise it's ok for all four years, you can upgrade memory to 8gb and good to go.

Yeah, my laptop is a 6700hq with 16gb. Which I use for work.

Found a benchmark that says this ryzen is 90% of they 6700hq. So just need some memory and my son should be set.

It has an M.2 slot which will take an NVMe or SATA SSD. NVMe is a protocol for taking to drives, not a hardware spec in of itself.

I'm returning a dell latitude e5440 to work since I'm resigning. Looking for a cheap laptop to do my college work and throw around the house so I don't have to beat up my MacBook. I like the 1080p screen. If this is kept plugged in you think it's decent for web browsing, word processing etc.
I'm use to building in the desktop space, laptops are a completely different ballpark for me
