I'm looking to buy a cheap laptop for my son. Ive been waiting for the Walmart Motile laptop to go on sale again, or was considering the Walmart Lenovo Ideapad 330s 15.6" Laptop, Windows 10, AMD Ryzen 5 2500U for $359. However, I just saw this one and it is a Ryzen 5 3500.

Looks decent, but...

Can't tell if keyboard is backlit and looks like 4gb ram soldered with one slot available.

Better than Motile cause dual channel ram (assume) and ACER over Motile all day.

I got 10 percent off plus free shipping for being a student! Great deal. Costed me a little over $350 after taxes. Also purchased 4 GB additional ram from ebay for 15 dollars. $365 for a brand new laptop and 8 GB of ram. It got decent reviews:

Says in the specifications only 1 slot of RAM, so quite literally can't be dual channel...
4gb soldered plus one extra ram slot

Found this in Acer forums. I'm assuming this model will be the same?

How many total memory slots to install memory?

The Laptop has 2 Slots (1 Upgradable) to install memory, already with 4GB (Soldered) standard memory installed. For best Swift 3 SF314-41-R80D Laptop performance use the maximum amount of 12GB, fill all the slots with the max allowed memory per slot for your Laptop.

Is Acer reliable for build quality? (probably dumb question but nevertheless I ask)

Can someone with this laptop run the following in command prompt?

wmic MemoryChip get Speed

It will give us (hopefully) the memory speed soldered so we can match it when filling the available slot. Helps with saving a couple bucks if it doesn't reach 2666Mhz, you can go for a cheaper 2400mhz...
