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)

Any feedback on how sturdy the case is? I have a Dell Inspiron 5000 series that bends when picked up singlehanded, at the corners, causing battery mounts to snap from the flimsy case. TIA.

I have an Asus & an HP, both purchased last year, with just 128 GB SSD & Windows 10. I've checked usage on 1 of 'em, and it's only just over 30 GB. All I do is surf the web, no gaming whatsoever, and mine work just fine (HP has 8 GB RAM w/ Intel i3 and Asus has 4 GB RAM w/Ryzen 3).

The other motile systems came with a pretty clean version of windows, I'd guess after u get a couple essential programs installed ull have 50ish gb left, and u can always swap the ssd in these with a bigger one. The windows key is locked to the system so ull just have to download the installer from Microsoft and follow the props.

Yeah, I have one of these and it came with a standard Windows 10 Home installation, as far as I can tell. No third-party "extras" that I have noticed.
