can anyone please who has this laptop comment on the screen. Will it hurt the eyes if using for 5 hrs a day?
I was planning to buy a 17.3 inch IPS 1080P I5 ideapad this week for child online learning, but what I am looking for is not on sale. This laptop does fit the bill very nicely.
TN panels don't hurt your eyes. At least not a bit more than any other type of screens. The problem with TN is the viewing angle - even a 10 degree shift here considerably affects visibility. Imagine you sitting by someone and trying to show them something on your screen. They're not gonna see much

Normally I'd say buy now, since Black Friday is dying down.... but given how desperate online retailers are to drive up sales, I have a good feeling about BF 2020 deals.
Really hoping for a Ryzen 4500 series, IPS and dual channel RAM for ~350 or cheaper on BF. I'd even take 8gb in one SODIMM so I can add the second stick.

Been through same dilemma, but if I may, search for used 23"+ touchscreen all in one desktop for your kids. ( better for chemistry, drawing classes and etc) ex. Dell 2330

Newbie question: if you can't find the spec of the screen, how do you distinguish TN vs IPS screen?
Viewing angles. Watch a movie and compare the black bars at the bottom of the screen and the top of the screen. IPS will basically be uniformly black.
Or you can use a website like this:

Which type of screen would you say is best? I'm looking for a touchscreen laptop for work, hopefully 15" at the least; 17" preferred...any recommendations?
Sorry, I don't have any experience with touchscreens. I avoid touchscreens because 99% are glossy, which can cause bad reflections in bright rooms. I think only expensive Lenovo Thinkpads have matte touchscreens.

Buy now or wait for Black Friday???
Neither. Wait for 11th gen Intel with Xe graphics. It puts it on par with AMD and should be competitively priced. Of course if you need it now, then don't wait, obviously.

Likely will see a Ryzen 4500 for $350-$400 during BF.

Yeah I bought this in May from OD for this same price with half the SSD storage and have been really happy with it.

You're only getting this because you need a cheap but capable option for distance learning / remote work. It normally competes with nearly identical budget machines from Lenovo and hp with similar specs. These seem to be all clearancing out and staying OOS once they're gone, so get them at the low if you really really need on now.
Those that can wait should wait for BF.

What you get:
-a very capable, albeit older machine for $330, for either the ryzen 3 and i3 iterations.
-backlit keyboard (if you work anytime or anywhere where lighting is subpar or daylight isn't predominant, it's a big help.)
-easy to upgrade ram and add an SSD (system is on m.2)
-hdmi out

What you don't get:
-a screen you'll be happy with. If anything, you'll learn to tolerate it. If you're extending to a primary display it's not a problem. I find the TN angle to be manageable, but the anti-glare is what I notice the most.
-ethernet jack
-a usb c connector that supports extending the display for a 3rd monitor


The 4gb ram / 128gb m2 config of this series sold for $279 over the 2019 winter (BB/OD/ST,WM), and around $300 this spring (Walmart). This config is the cheapest if you'll end up getting a 8 or 12 gb stick to upgrade ram.
The 8gb ram / 128-256gb m2 config of this series sold this spring/summer for between $330-370
This one is on the better side of the post-covid vivbook deals if you really need one now , otherwise wait for BF.

Received this the other day when it was $349. Easily added a sata hdd after buying a sata cable. Screen was good enough for the person it was meant for, who was coming from a 12 year old laptop.Yeah

I know it's easy to get out of the windows S mode. Is there any advantage to keeping the S mode on in the laptop? I am considering laptop for 6 year old for school work, online classes etc. I think S mode would be better for children rather than full windows.

the best deal so far in around 300 to 360$ price range. I have been searching for one long time and i cannot find any decent configuration one under 350$. I ended up buying in COSTCO for 350$ ( I3(10th Gen), 8GB , 256 SSD, 1080p, 14inch, HDMI and etc).

This is best price than costco ! definitely a Go!

Also, colors pop a lot more on IPS (i.e. macbooks)
I try to get IPS whenever possible however, i found them to be a 2-300 hundred more than TN.
