Seems like a decent deal for the specs. I was going to pull the trigger on this for a laptop upgrade for my parents. I am going to compare against the Black Friday deals.

Dont waste your time... The display is terrible... Only 720p. Garbage. That's why it is so cheap. Never never buy a laptop unless Full HD or better. Trust me.

I would definitely try it out in store first. Open up websites you would normally go to and see if the formatting works for whomever is going to be using the laptop. Install other programs/apps you use heavily (if you can download them) and really give it a test. Higher resolutions means more screen real estate which would mean more of a website on a page, however as I've gotten older I've found that that also means smaller text/images. Though you can magnify/zoom websites and adjust fonts etc. to compensate or move closer to the screen or even adjust the resolution to compensate.

Higher resolution means you have more options (as you can always still choose a lower resolution if it is needed), but it doesnt work the other way. So just make sure you test things out in person, for a good while (don't just do a short couple of clicks on it, own that thing while you are testing it out) to avoid havjng regrets bc of something you could have discovered but didnt take enough time with it,

No gigabyte Ethernet? What kind of a chipset are they using?

Does anyone know if this has an available M.2 SSD slot? I can't seem to find out googling it.
