Price dropped to $199








Display: 14" 1080p IPS (240 nits, 62% sRGB)
CPU: Ryzen 3 3200U (Passmark 4610, single thread 1634), Vega 3 integrated graphics
RAM: 4GB DDR4 2666 MHz (non-soldered, only 1 slot)
HD: 128GB SSD M.2 SATA + empty M.2 slot (first slot supports SATA, empty slot supports NVMe)
USB: 2x USB 3, 1x USB 2, 1x USB-C (USB-C does not support charging or video out)
Video out: HDMI (full size, can do 4k @ 60Hz)
Other: Ethernet port, audio combo jack, SD card reader
Wifi: 802.11ac (Intel AC 3168, 1x1)
Bluetooth: v4.2
Backlit keyboard: Yes (though apparently does not look good on silver model)
Camera: 720p front cam with IR
Construction: Magnesium aluminum
Battery: 47 Wh, ~7.5 hr battery life, 65W charger
OS: Windows 10 Home 64 bit (not S)
Weight: 2.55 lbs
Warranty: 1 year limited

Selling points:
-1920 x 1080 IPS screen
-Extremely light weight for size, with competitors (eg LG Gram) being much more expensive
-Compact/narrow bezels - 14" screen on laptop that is the size of a 13"
-Quiet
-Metal construction (Aluminum magnesium alloy)
-Backlit keyboard (some people do report the silver model the backlit is not bright enough due to the silver background of the key. with the black model having the best backlit/key background color combination)
-pretty good trackpad (large size)
-Ethernet port, full size HDMI with 4k
-Windows 10 Home (don't need to convert from S mode, has zero bloatware so no need to reformat)
-Front IR camera supporting Windows Hello (login to Windows using facial recognition)
-Very low price for all of above
-Runs Ubuntu Linux [reddit.com] perfectly (no driver installs, command line edits, etc)

Detractions:
-1 slot of RAM - so no dual channel, resulting in ~25% graphics performance hit
-Comes with 4GB RAM. While sufficient/fast for most people (despite what forums will have you believe), power users may benefit from 8GB, an easy and cheap upgrade
-Not from a well known brand (it was put out by a partnership between Walmart and THX)
-Screen could be brighter outdoors (240 nits)
-USB-C does not support charging or video output
-Wifi is 1x1 but can be easily upgrade to AX200 2x2 wifi 6 for about $18 (well worth it)
-No 2.5" slot
-Trackpad a bit fidgety for precise movements
-Speakers are what you would expect for this class of laptop

8GB RAM for $30 (replaces the 4GB, so total after upgrade is 8GB not 12GB)

I purchased the laptop during Christmas. So far I'm satisfied with it. Can't really complain about a 1080p laptop at this price. The only upgrade I did was the memory to 16GB. It might be overkill though. I mainly use it to connect to my computer at work, the occasional surfing and watching Plex. I also plan to install an nvme for the 2nd drive in the future. My Microsoft Bluetooth mouse works great too. The only minor complaint I have is that the backlit keyboard lights turn off after about ten seconds. If I can get at least two years out of this laptop, it will have been definitely worth it.
You purchased this model and upgraded the RAM to 16gb? I'm asking because I'm interested but another comment said they did not believe this model could have upgraded RAM.

You can upgrade the amount of RAM. Just not to dual channel as there's only 1 RAM slot.

Don't buy Grey. Backlit sucks with that color.

Could you link to what it was you got? I'm eyeballing this for my parents, but would love to get them up to 8gb/256gb.

Previous thread says 1 year limited warranty but couldn't find anything on the Walmart website. Can anyone confirm if it comes with any warranty by default?

You'd likely be better off buying the Ryzen 5 model at that point. AFAIK getting a 256 SSD and 8GB RAM for $40 wont be easy, and you still are stuck with a Ryzen 3.

I agreed with you. Since I didnt want to return it and I'm only use it for youtube, Netflix and web broswsing. I'd buy the R5 if I didnt buy this R3.

get the R5 if you want more ram and hd as other suggest.

I bought used ram and ssd from ebay

you can search:
8GB 1Rx8 PC4-2400T DDR4 SODIMM Laptop Memory
128GB M.2 PCIe Gen3 NVMe SSD

edit: the reason I want another ssd is I setup dual boot with linux-mint.

Ahh, I mean that's all my parents are doing anyways, and the R5 is $140 more than the R3 at this point.. figured with a few cheap upgrades it'd be more than sufficient for their needs, and still $100 or so cheaper.

Thanks dude. I'll see if I can make it work, if not, I'll just step up to the R5.

The R5 was $299. I'm sure it will be again.
