I purchased 2 of these laptops brand new on Amazon Prime day for $269.00 plus tax and they were worth every penny. I upgraded the RAM (very easy I might add) to 8GB total and this laptop flies. It comes with a 4GB stick and you simply need to buy another one at the link below for $12.99. It is the exact same stick that comes in the laptop and even the same brand. It also has a slot for an additional SSD drive but I'm not sure if it is the NVME type drive or the other one.

P.S. It does not matter if you get a laptop with Windows 10 or Windows 10 S. You can change it from S to normal Windows 10 by following the instructions at the link below.

Add the 1-year Squaretrade warranty then. Even with that it'll be about $30 less than buying new.



Anybody got more pointless complaints for this thread? So far the following have already been brought up for this $243 laptop -


No touchscreen

CPU isn't fast enough even though it's about on par with a current gen mobile i3 or a prior gen mobile i5 and its graphics performance significantly better than both

No USB-C for Power Delivery or Video Out (even though nothing near this price offers it besides select Chromebooks)

Sales Tax even though Acer has always charged sales tax on eBay and 34 states now enforce sales tax for ALL online purchases



Still waiting on screen isn't 600 nits, battery life isn't 10 hours, laptop should be 2.5 pounds, not a 2-in-1 convertible, no Thunderbolt port and speakers aren't loud enough to be heard over a vacuum cleaner. Oh and I almost forgot, I'm a total Acer fanboy, shill because I'm bringing up these entirely reasonable points.

Only 3 months warranty which IF laptop is built good won't be an issue but if it starts having issues down the line then won't get much help from manufacturer.

I bought one despite tax issue. Ebay has always charged tax for many sellers.

Great deal for the price. So much better than that $200 A9 from the other day.

I wish it was Ryzen 5... and touchscreen... and and and and... but for this price, this is a winner. And it might game a little too. Easy to upgrade RAM and SSD. 1080p IPS screen, nice! Backlit keyboard is a must for me nowadays, it doesn't say what color but I'll guess blueish white.

I bought a refurb laptop from the Acer ebay store (not this laptop) and it was in like new condition and they come with 90 day warranty. Shipped fast. Sales tax is inevitable now, just deal with it.

Thumbs up. This wins the "best laptop under $400" award from me. Factor in $20-$60 for ram upgrade depending on needs, and $50-100 for SSD upgrade if you need it. Pro tip, you can get a matching 4gb sodimm module on ebay for cheap from people upgrading to more. Just crack your new laptop open and punch in the dimm pn into ebay for a match. I think 8GB is plenty for people shopping in this price category, but 16gb can be done for $70ish. Then turn around and sell your old 4gb stick on ebay for $10, LOL. 128gb SSD is fine for workstation stuff, but 1 or 2 games will destroy that pretty fast.

If it only had touch screen, wifey would be getting a new laptop to replace her old Dell. But she has pretty much said any new laptop has to have touchscreen to be her daily driver. Personally I could care less about touchscreen.
