It seems like I'm always searching for a Laptop for someone. Kid, Mom, Wife ETC. I came across this one today. Looks like a pretty good deal for what you get. I bought another Windows 10 S device and it was easy to switch to home.

Comment doesn't make sense. Same product is sold at other retailers. Walmart isn't making and selling its own computers.

I'll offer my unprofessional opinion: I just returned the i3 version of this exact same laptop to Amazon. The machine seemed pretty good, booted up plenty fast and was able to handle my basic needs. I bought it specifically for writing and research, which meant that the keyboard was very important. This keyboard... was not great. The spacing and size of the keys was very odd to me and I could not get a decent typing flow even after trying it out daily for a week. This may be very specific to me, however.

The trackpad is also hot garbage. So sensitive that it was constantly flying me all over the place or randomly zooming in and then it was a freakin chore to get things to reset properly.

Fingerprint reader and hinges, I had no problems with like some others experienced. The screen is also a matte TN that has a very limited viewing angle and wasn't great for the amount of text I was working with regularly. Maybe it's okay for other stuff but it started to wear on my eyes pretty quick.

Edit: Forgot to mention how annoying it was to just open/close it. Making it so light with cheap plastic meant that there was nothing keeping it grounded, so opening the thing requires two hands like delicately extracting a gd pearl from a clam. And I couldn't seem to casually close it on my desk without it sliding around, leaving a scratch on the desk at least once.

tl;dr: bought it for $60 more and I still don't think it's worth this price.

I buy on Black Friday for me... Smilie I had a cousin looking for a Laptop for Netflix, Browsing, Email ETC. I found this and she pulled the trigger. For this price, I wouldn't mind buying one myself to use for a few months then giving it to my wife or kid and getting another deal. Price is pretty killer for this spec.

Also keep an eye on the Walmart Gaming Laptops/PC Brickseek megathread YMMV, though I'm not sure how gaming laptops translate to those of us who aren't gamers.
Lowest price is $399, folks waiting for it or others to go lower.

In regards to BF, last couple years rather uninspiring IMO. Couple to be had, but not what I used to expect.

I'm a big Asus vivobook fan. That being said, this was a bad choice for my kids as they busted the hinges. You really need to be careful.

Sorry but your recommendation is bad. Don't buy Walmart gaming PCs. They're a joke. The lack of quality check and quality assurance is out of this world bad. Do your research if you don't believe me.

Lol. Dealing with a major issue on my Huawei Matebook X Pro due to design flaw on the hinge and glass. No gap where the frame hits the screen.

These OEMs are taking 'engineered obsolescence' to new depravity levels.

Viviobook are all IPS unless they made one specially for Walmart without IPS. The viewing angel is 178 degree so it's not TN for sure. I don't see how it can be VA either
