I bought the other cheap Lenovo a while back --- the screen is pretty bad. My vision is blurry after looking at it, not a lie. Would not recommend.
Try a different refresh rate, also check the resolution, maybe change that and see if it helps. Not familiar with what you bought but sometimes weird refresh rate or resolution makes my eyes feel off

I have this laptop. It only has one slot for ram upgrades. It has one 4gb stick installed. Not 4gb soldered. Upgrading to one stick of 8gb and to an ssd is highly recommended.

rather spend a bit more on a nicer screen. not worth risking your eyesight on a cheap ass tn panel imo.

I bought this laptop the last time it was on SD. Upgraded ram (pita) to 8gb and added a 256gb m.2 so is fast enough for everyday use. For $163 (open box) + $50 in upgrades, it's fine.
I don't like the display - colors appear washed out and it's just not crisp.

For the price you wont do much better. Ive seen an a12 go for 200 as well as an i3. But this is still solid for the price.

Where do I check/change refresh rate? I don't remember seeing that anywhere.

It has a lot of blue to it (usually use the filter on Windows). It's got a clouded-over look to it. My very old laptop is much easier to look at (glossy) and the Acer 1080p recent deal I also bought is HEAVEN compared to it. The upgraded processor and screen on the Acer make this a no in comparison!
It's worth a try, look in display properties? I honestly forget, been a while since I used windows. Right click on the desktop and look for properties for the display. It's a Longshot but sometimes changing the refresh rate helps, or the resolution

Because people want cheap disposable stuff, not something that will last until it is very obsolete. Quality can be expensive.

It's a laptop. The form factor requires that you replace it every so often, regardless of price.

No lithium ion battery lasts forever and new software developers couldn't care less that their stuff doesn't work on your 20 year old Pentium 4.

If you want something that stretches the upgrade cycle and runs Windows, get a desktop. If you only care about browsing the internet, get a raspberry pi. And if you only care about browsing the internet and having it portable, get a Chromebook.

But a laptop that runs Windows for only $200 is absolutely amazing for students and anyone else needing Microsoft Office.

For those who have upgraded the ram and added an ssd, what do you recommend? I read previously that certain m.2 don't work right.
