I bought this during the last front page deal with a couple of staples coupons and store credit vouchers.

It has been exceptional for my use case. I am a writer and my daughter had dumped a bottle of bubbles on my daily driver laptop. This is my cheap beater. I bought it, opted into regular windows, installed my writing programs that I needed, and it has been nothing but a workhorse since. I know word processing is very much not a power user case. I flip through a dozen browser tabs at a time too for research. But I'm not doing anything crazy like video encoding.

The screen is kind of a bummer. You can visually see how much it sucks compared to a $1,000 laptop - washed out, lower resolution, etc. The build quality is very much cheap plastic, though it seems like it will take a beating a lot better than my $1,000 Lenovo which gets dinged if you breathe on it.

The battery life is spectacular. Literally lasts all day, and then some. Compare it with my Lenovo, which was made so thin and light that the battery only lasts about 4 hours.

This thing may be a cheap beater, but it is the best cheap beater I have ever bought. I like it so much that I almost brought it with me to the other side of the world for a three week vacation instead of the Lenovo. I brought the more powerful laptop instead, plus two battery packs, but it was close.

RAM not upgradeable. SSD not upgradeable either, has space but no connector. But still million times better than a crappy Chromebook.

Was waiting for this to drop back down for black Friday/cyber Monday to $150 but it never did so I picked up one used for $140 from someone who bought it in September.

I mainly use it for school, YouTube, google docs, slides etc and it's fine. I opted into windows 10 home permanently. The screen is the only downer, battery is around 6 hours real world use at 75% performance surfing the net watching YouTube.

Worth it for $150, especially with the Touch Screen. Nice deal, for a portable "Netbook".

Add a 256GB SD Card, and you are all set.

What can you do with it?


My 15+ years old lappy had a similar score [cpubenchmark.net] (Core2 something), it was slow.
Works fine as laptop. Or install chromeos on flash drive and use as chromebook.

it's interesting you said that re: the score, we chose the laptop because it's the same score as my partner's current laptop that she bought 4 years ago.

she only uses it for youtube / email / etc, basically chromebook level activities but didn't want to learn chrome OS...

i don't think anyone looking at this is expecting a powerhouse, it's a good price for what it is though.

This seems like an extremely good deal. What am I missing that this is not FP?

I got the Best Buy Acer Spin 11 deal for $220. Seems the same but this Spin 1 has twice the memory 32 vs 64 and a better processor N3350 vs N5000.


I know the Spin 11 is "tough" and meant for kids and schools. Is there anything I am missing?
