For those too lazy to go find it like I did, here's the copy paste:

Still loving this laptop. I got in on this deal prior to Black Friday. Works great for VR using a Quest 2 and Virtual Desktop.
So screen and build are not great. If you plan on hooking up to a monitor and not constantly opening and closing it, you probably won't find a better deal.

And , obviously it can still be used portable. The screen is ok, fine, but maybe not what you would want for every day viewing.

It's a lot of computer for $450. The only big complaint is the screen from many people but otherwise most people are happy.

Still happy with mine, just don't expect much out of the screen. See the previous thread for a color profile to load.
