Prácticamente todas las computadoras que he comprado han sido Asus. Son durables y buenas para trabajar. Con esta computadora he tenido que acostumbrarme al hecho que la pantalla es mate, no como la anterior que la pantalla es brillante, aunque por otro lado la vista no se me cansa tanto, puesto que trabajo con ella por varias horas. Es rápida y con mucha capacidad de almacenamiento. ¡me encanta! Nota: la anterior se la pase a mi nieta y tiene conmigo unos 5 años.

I ordered this online never having seen it which is a first for me. It is extremely lightweight and attractive with its silver color. I've only been using it for a few days but it runs very well. Speed is fast, setup with my software went really quickly and well. Keyboard feels great but this is the biggest flaw I've discovered so far ..... the letters/numbers/characters on the keys cannot be seen if the light is shining on the laptop from the wrong direction. My desk lamp is to the right of my laptop and I've had to setup a piece of cardboard on the right side of the laptop blocking the light in order to see the keys. Kind of a pain in the you-know-what. Of course, for those of you who are great typists and never have to look at the keys, this will be a non-issue. I also didn't realize that in order to do a system backup the external backup drive must be NTFS where a 2G external drive is required. Not knowing this I ordered a 1G backup drive [large enough since laptop drive is 512G] and it would not let me do a system backup. I will try to get around this by just trying to create a recovery drive only and do my file backups for the C:/ drive through the backup utility. I would als...

Very good computer, especially for the price. After schools had to close due to COVID19, we had to purchase this for our daughters school work. She was able to pick up the unit and use it immediately. Easy for all ages.

This is my first AMD and first computer with Asus Brand! Very impressed system fast and quiet and stay cool not even getting warm while I am using the computer all day long! But there no backlit for keyboard especially silver design it hard to see letters and there no fingerprint! The computer looks nice and not too heavy but feel make with cheap stuff not high quality feeling.

I spent a lot of money on this product. I think that it is ridiculous that I didn't get a charger or a booklet that came with this product. It's difficult for a college student to afford things let alone a laptop. The least they could have done was given a charger with the product.

This is a hoax, the specifications of the laptop delivered are different. I bought the one that shows the page: DELL INTEL CORE i3 7th Gen., 15.6", 256 GB SSD and 8 GB RAM, but delivery a laptop INTEL CORE i3 5th Gen., 14", 128 GB SSD and 4 GB RAM. You pay the value of advertising, but for a laptop with lower features.

The screen is terrible. It is a TN display not an IPS. There is a very small viewing angle. Tilt it slightly away and the screen gets dark and poor color representation, tilt it slightly toward you and the screen washes out bad. I would not have bought this if I saw it first. You need to stay directly in front of the screen for it to look ok. Even at its best its not great, or even good.

Really upset the display on this laptop is awful . I love the computer it's pretty fast and the sound is awesome. But, as you can see in the video you can't see the display well unless you are looking at the screen straight on, and even then if you move even the slightest display will fade . I've spent hours trying different graphics settings, the graphics are Intel UHD and the UHD settings are not there . I've concluded that it's the monitorI'm going to complain to Dell if I get no response from them I'll be returning to Amazon.

I purchased this laptop for my fourteen year old daughter as a gift for her birthday to use for high school and for some light gaming. So far it has met my expectations and I must say for a lower end model I am impressed with the performance and usability. For a teenager or young adult it is a good starter laptop, my take on it is this: “This is your ‘trial’ machine. Show me that you can take care of this one and then we can talk about the i7, 8GB RAM and off board video for your next birthday.” It runs Minecraft without issue and skypes... get a home/student license for MS Office and they will have nothing to complain about.

Lamentable, compré con una especificaciones y me llegó algo supremamente inferior. La pantalla es realmente de 14" y en las especificaciones dice que es de 15.6", ofrecen 8 GB de memoria y es de 4GB, El disco SSD que ofrecen es de 256 GB y realmente es de 128 GB. Por donde lo miren es una estafa. Luego de llamar a Amazon, me sorprendió que a los usuarios nos aparece una información y a ellos en el sistema otra, donde sale realmente engañado el comprador. Lo más lamentable y donde se puede ver realmente la negligencia y mala fe de Amazon es que apesar de todos los reviwes donde se denuncia tantas veces esta situación ellos siguen ofreciendo un producto fraudulento. Lo más lamentable es que no ofrecen ninguna solución y todas las respuestas son evasivas y de total negligencia. MUY DECEPCIONADA DE AMAZON QUE FUE QUIEN ME VENDIO Y DESPACHO EL COMPUTADOR. Soy una clienta frecuente y creo no merecer este trato. Además cuando recibí el correo con la causa de devolución, ponen una totalmente diferente y que dista mucho de la causa real.

This is probably the best $400 Chromebook on the market right now. Unfortunately, I had to return mine. The display is a nice full HD 1920 x 1080 with bright crisp color. The keyboard is excellent. The trackpad is large and responsive. Browsing the web is very quick. I benchmarked this machine with Octane 2 and got a score of around 12000. Not bad for a Celeron. So... why did I send it back. The problem was that the Chromebook I received had two manufacturing flaws. The case is aluminum which is great, but the bottom edge of my case had a sharp edge going all way around. I think the aluminum case was a fraction of a millimeter too wide. It wasn't sharp enough to cut, but it gave the Chromebook an unfinished feel. The second problem was that the trackpad was loose. It worked fine, but when you tapped (which you do a lot on Chromebooks), the trackpad rattled slightly. I thought I could live with it, but the more I used it, the more crazy it made me. Hopefully, these build problems were only on the Chromebook that I received and all the other Acer 514s do not have these issues.

I've had the Acer Chromebook 514 for about two weeks now, and I am totally pleased with it! After reading about this model at the beginning of the year, I kept watching for it to become available. I was most interested in the backlit keyboard which is such a convenient feature, but I am also finding that I am using the touchscreen feature more than I thought I would. I have been a fan of Acer chromebooks for the past six years, partly because I love the non-glare screens that so many of the models offer. Also, the battery life is great and there is no heat factor that you encounter in so many laptops! Everything about the device works perfectly, and I am expecting many years of use from it based on my previous experiences with Acer chromebooks!

I have only had this Acer Chromebook for 2 days, (it's my first chromebook), but the set up took maybe 4 mins. So far I think it will fit my needs, checking emails and surfing the net, and of course ordering from Amazon. It is a more expensive Chromebook, but I wanted a lighted keyboard. I still have Windows 7 on my Dell Inspiron, support will expire Jan 2020. I am sick and tired of Windows, it's crummy updates , etc. Decided for the cost of a Chromebook being at least half the expense of a new laptop, would give it a try. Google Cloud Printing after research may be challenging to set up, but I really don't use the printer a lot, so I will see if I can do without one. Will give update after using Acer 514 Chromebook for several months.Update: One month into using Acer 514. I am very pleased with this chromebook. It is fast and battery life is 11.5 hrs up to 12 hrs. The Gorilla Glass Trackpad is responsive and smooth. I like the 'night light mode' that I have automatically set up, it really reduces glare and strain on the eyes at night. Took a little time to get used to Chrome OS system; but I will NEVER go back to Windows again. The Touch Screen is also smooth. Over all, for my fir...

The trackpad is not solidly integrated in the notebook. When tapping or touching the trackpad it rattles and moves very annoyingly. It seems to get worse and worse with time.

Mike X
February 19, 2019

I will start with the best assets of this Chromebook. The track-pad is gorilla glass and it is as good as my old macbook pro, which is Great. The keyboard is very good, not great, but very good. It may be a small step below the macbook pro. The screen is a mat screen and not reflective at all which is good but takes some getting used too. It is not the macbook pro screen (but not much is). The processor is very good and I had the 3450, not the 4200, at $339.00 this is a banging Chromebook! If super screen is not your need, then this is as fast as I can Imagine anyone who is not a "power user"needing. I have had no issues with speed or video playback Netflix and Youtube with 5 other windows open, Amazon shopping, Ebay Browsing and research portals open. It is a very good Chromebook, and for the money i would almost place it in the Great category.

I don't think any Chromebook at this price point can beat this computer. I've used Chromebooks from HP, Lenovo, Asus and another Acer model. For me, I look for the following: lightweight, speedy response to my activity, long battery life, touch screen, bright screen and backlit keyboard. The Asus Flip c302 had all of these too. However, it cost much more! I also really like the size and ratio of this 14 inch screen. For $300, this does not have the build quality of my Surface Book but I did not expect it to. It is a fun computer to use and I will probably use it as much or more than my Surface Book.

I went the Chromebook route on the advice of a friend who’s a software engineer. He uses Chromebooks for work all the time writing complex programs for businesses.I decided to begin migrating out of the Apple universe, and CB-514-C7 model was my first purchase. I couldn’t be happier. It performs fabulously for everyday web surfing, movies and TV, email, the usual stuff...The keyboard feels very good with just the right amount of key travel depth. A 14” touchscreen in what is essentially an 12”body is a real space- and weight-saver.I’m routinely getting in excess of 10-11 hours of battery life with the brightness at about 75%, 12+ hours at a dimmer setting (for the backlit keyboard as well; there are five levels for that) is a reasonable expectation.I’ve had this Chromebook for about a month, and have absolutely no complaints.

My first Asus Chromebook was a dream for the first year before becoming glitchy. After another year of unreliable performance I purchased an Asus c434 Flip, only to return it shortly afterwards as it was clearly defective, with flashing screens, etc. Then based on the reviews I purchased this Acer. I quickly found it problematic but foolishly didn't return it as well. So now, four months in, the greatest problems are the touchscreen and the quality of the chassis. About once each day the screen freezes and loses all responsivity to touch, requiring a hard reboot. Sometimes when I simply pick up the device the screen alters it place requiring scrolling up or down to return to where I was, but worse than this it often just closes out the current screen and takes me back a tab or two. This happens with holding/touching the frame around the screen or its back, as well as the chassis around the keyboard. Pressure to the area adjacent to the touchpad is especially likely to cancel the current tab, sometimes throwing me back to the home screen. If I didn't know the sequence to restore tabs (ctrl+shift+t) I'd have tossed this thing in the garbage weeks ago. This Acer has turned out to be a...

I purchased 3 other chromebooks (around this price point and size) before I purchased this one and this is THE BEST by far! Quiet, easy to type keyboard, screen is bright and clear, trackpad is like a Mac's, sturdy construction. The sound is as good as it gets in a Chromebook released in 2019. (Without having a 15 inch or larger Chromebook with speakers on both sides of the keyboard.) There are dual speakers on the bottom and the sound is pretty good. I hope all manufacturers improve the speakers in future Chromebooks. (Take a queue from the 2015 Toshiba chromebook with Skullcandy speakers.)

I had the previous model, it lasted 5 years. The touch pad is very smooth and has a nice feel. The outer case has nothing to like about it. All the edges are very sharp. The top and bottom case pieces match so closely that it is difficult to open. The screen bezel on the sides is less that half of the older model making it look (if not actually be) fragile.

I bought this MacBook as I needed a well built (long lasting), fast, compact laptop that can handle day to day tasks in addition to creative work down the road (I am trying to get into Photography and Video Editing). This laptop checked everything off my list.In addition, I wanted a laptop that can seamlessly sync with my phone (iPhone 11 Pro). I love that I can answer calls, respond to texts, and read emails between all of my devices automatically without having to really set anything up or picking up my phone. The screen is also one of the best to look at in my opinion.I briefly had the 2019 entry level model of the MacBook Pro 13 with 2 ports but I quickly returned it as the 2 ports where quite limiting, I wasn't satisfied with the performance, and the butterfly keyboard was not my favorite and gave me anxiety. I am glad I waited a bit longer for this refresh before going for the higher end model as I am actually saving money as I did not have to purchase upgrades to get the 16 gigs of ram I wanted and I also get twice the storage as well which means I don't have to buy an external SSD, until I am much closer to starting creative work.So far I am very impressed with the MacBook...

This is my first mac computer and coming from windows based computers this thing is amazing. I don't think ill ever go back to a windows pc. As with all apple products the quality and feel is the best. As for the computer itself it arrived in perfect condition and a day early. The new 2020 13" works flawless absolutely zero issues with setup and initial operation as is expected with the apple premium paid. If you're debating on switching to macbook pro or upgrading your older macbook I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Very good product, I am very happy with this purchase. Powerful and fast. Only downfall is that a pro model at this price and it only has 2 usb-c ports?, I think it will work fine for me but might be a big problem for people that use multiple add on items for recording audio and video at a higher quality that what the computer itself can produce. If u want more than the 2 usb-c ports you have to upgrade to the 1799 price model.

Compared to laptop PCs I've owned, the battery life on this is terrible. I have to charge it a couple times throughout the day. Other than that, it seems to work okay. It's not as fast as I thought it would be, coming from using a 2.5-year old Dell XPS 13. I thought this would be so much faster than that, but it's only a minor noticeable difference. Not sure it's worth the price, as a PC with similar (or better) specs can be had for $400 less, but I'm hoping that the build quality will outlast the other PC options I was looking at, so in the end it "should" be a better investment. There have also been issues with ambient light going between blue to ambient-- that's annoying, and when I try to update apps it says, ""...cannot be updated because it was refunded or purchased with a different Apple ID" -- maybe this was a returned machine. IDK.

This is first time I am posting review and I am very frustrated with amazon. Actually I am prime member since 2016 and I but almost every week from amazon. This is the first time i am very disappointed. Package arrived 1 week delay than guaranteed delivered date by UPS. I ordered new macbook with 16 gb ram and 1tb ssd but received 8gb ram and 256 ssd probably old released macbook. I opened laptop about 40 minutes and setup all necessary steps and it just blinked few times and shutdown automatically and didn't turn on back, I put laptop in charge but it didn't response anything. I called to amazon technical support and one gentleman tried to help me out but didn't work and he connected call to apple store with export and finally that man asked me serial number and after checking serial number, he said it's not 2020 16gb ram, 1tb ssd laptop, than I checked laptop box and it said 8gb ram, 256 gb ssd.Because of covid 19, my all classes is in online so I tried to work whatever I got but it even didn't turn on. It's so frustrating. Finally I decided to return it and get windows from best buy.

As a long time Mac User, my old macbook is still holding up pretty well! I was expecting to upgrade to the rumored 14 inch Macbook Pro, but it did come.After window shopping a lot of PC Laptops, especially Dell XPS, I am still convinced making right choice buying this once I open the package. Apple still delivers the best quality product!PC vs. Mac?PC may seems offering better value, they are NOT stable, after 2 years usage, it would comes with millions of glitches.Mac = STABLE, No Hassle, functioning good for years!

This is probably my 10th laptop... this one feels fast, touch screen, mouse pad, speakers, and keyboard are all great. have only had it a few hours, but so far its just what we wanted and ordered. The display is truly beautiful. Cannot get a feel for battery yet, of course, but its held its charge for a couple of hours already. Took some time to remove the bloat -- but set up was otherwise painless. Added a tiny app to control fan -- otherwise, the fan runs loud and often. Was surprised it had a fan with the SSD drive -- but HP should include an app to control the fan. (My 10" Dells never had a fan, but my two HPs have both had loud fans.) We actually ordered this from HP directly because this listing said dual processor instead of quad -- but that is a typo. Ordering this on the phone through HP ended up in them sending the wrong laptop for $50 more... and it took about 10 days to get it... and that was during their Memorial Day sale. Shipped it back and ordered this one. The extended warranty package was only for three years from HP and was more expensive then the 4 year package offered through Amazon... those things are usually not worth it, but for 10-15% of the price of a lapt...

I bought this for my son as a graduation present to take to college. He got it on May 25th and it is now August 8th. It has been dead since July 15th and back at HP. We got it back today after swapping out power bricks and then a total motherboard replacement and it came back DOA. At this point it has been broken longer than it has worked. Of course since we tried to go through the warranty process, now we are past the return window. Now what? I would not recommend!

Let me preface this by stating that I am a Mac user - I don't have the most expensive models - I have bought used and scoured for discounts over the years - but only this year I replaced my 2011 21.5" iMac for a Late 2015 Retina 27" iMac I bought used. My 2011 was still going strong, but I wanted a bigger screen. If it had been a PC - an 8-year old PC - it would have been replaced years ago. My daughter started her first year at college and wanted a laptop and is not a Mac person (she uses an iPad and an iPhone though) So I tried to find the best value in a small PC. Needless to say I was disappointed when the computer arrived and there was no response for the touchscreen. I scoured the internet for a simple fix and the ones I found involved deleting drivers and messing with the bios - things I have never messed with on my Macs. So I called HP, gave them my serial number and was told it would need to come in for repair. As I received it the day before, I returned it. Thank heaven for Amazon. I have ordered another HP computer, this time a Spectre x360, hoping that since it was a 2in1, they wouldn't forget to assemble it with a touchscreen. Most importantly, I bought a 4-year warran...

I bought this machine for my next two years of college, as my old Macbook died. Out of all the things I like about this computer, the thing I like the most is the keyboard. It is very tactile, the keys have just the right amount of travel and are very responsive. If your looking for a laptop that you will be typing a lot on, this is the one to get.For performance, the i7 CPU in this handles everything I throw at it comfortably, and with 16gb of RAM and a dedicated graphics chip, things run very smoothly. I even threw some light photo editing in Lightroom and playing some older games and this did it without issue.The 4k screen is nice, but I'd say that the actual display quality is average. Though the resolution is good, the colors are definitely average and so is the contrast (at least when comparing to my old Retina Macbook). I'm sure to the average user this wouldn't be noticeable. As for the touchscreen, I don't really care for touchscreen computers so I will probably never use that feature. The fingerprint reader is a nice feature, it saves me from having to type in my password on the lockscreen.For battery, I probably get like 3-4 hours of normal usage on the "better battery"...

I initially gave this a good rating but since I would have to lower the rating. This past weekend it the screen blacked out and it will not charge. After talking with online troubleshooting I had to send it back to HP. Now my son, in the middle of trying to do his home work for college is left without a computer.

I am a freelance designer. I needed a small durable laptop that can handle lots of artboards, heavy psds, animation, video editing etc.. but i really wanted to stay away from a 15" laptop. I was not sure about this one and assumed i was taking a gamble. For one i dont like HP, the customer service is awful and i think they cheap out alot. With all this said i have been very happy so far.after effects, spotify, chrome, couple adobe psds, few affinity files etc. thing works great i haven't noticed any real issues so far. as far as power its been pretty solid.The keyboard is fantastic, one of the best i have used on a laptop.Screen is fantastic, sharp clear good colors.build quality is fantastic, VERY VERY solid machine.the battery is incredible. lasts a VERY VERY long time. much longer than 4 hours.Cons:My biggest pet peeve with laptop companies is the fact that they ALWAYS F-up the thermal paste so the thing is bouncing off 98c. This laptop was a bit different after a day of lots of creation, 2 cores hit around 89-90 but stayed around 65-75 degrees. For an ultra book thats not bad. Since im a heat nut, i re-thermal pasted the cpu and bought it down 10 degrees. So after a long day of...

I bought this notebook because I was looking for something powerful but small and thin. This Ultrabook fulfills those characteristics. I can edit videos in Adobe Premiere, even in RED RAW format.The port on the left is really fast, but the one on the right works like USB 2.0 in speed.The biggest problem is the duration of the battery. It does not matter how you configure it, nor the saving mode, nor any setting that you can apply. The duration does not drop from 4: 20hs. I was able to update manually to Windows 10 May Update but it still did not improve.I hope you can improve some configuration, since in the minimum use of it, or in Idle mode, there is no possibility to reduce the Discharge Rate.

Update: I want to love this computer but for the price it is not worth it. Once you have several browser windows up it slows to a crawl and sometimes just freezes. Any kind of multitasking does not work. Very frustrated especially for the price pointI just got this computer and I have loved everything about it. It is sleek, light and looks great. It is very fast and has a beautiful display. I have already streamed several movies and shows on it. However, after having it for about a week the fingerprint sensor does not activate leaving me to use my password to log on. Not sure what happened or what I need to do to make it work. Otherwise everything is great.

It was good if it’s a general use laptop. The touchscreen every so often wouldn’t respond. And often the fingerprint scanner didn’t read until after a few attempts. The screen was very good though crystal image and it would run programs well, although it did have it moments of non responsive actions.

shipped all the way to Saudi Arabia, came in new unopened. A very speced out especially the mx250 video card and the ddr4 rams, you will never find such specs with this price. Highly recommend it.a little coil one, not to loud, comes and goes depends on heavy usage.The only thing i dont like about this laptop that the screen can't be laid back much, it only opens to certain degree which is not enough for my use. Other than that i would give it 5 stars! haven't tried it on video editing yet since that is the reason i bought the laptop for, I will update my review on that after testing it.Oh and i am sad they removed the fancy looking wooden line at the back of the screen like the previous models.

This laptop's specs and price were such a great balance. On paper this is a great product, but HP clearly isn't doing proper quality control on this model (after using 4 HP laptops over the years, actually, I'm done with HP). I am taking time to review this item simply to help out other people, and my sincere advice to you is turn away. There are so many good laptops in the 1000+ range and with a bit more money you can get something for which you're not taking a chance. I did and it didn't work out. Be smart. Don't be like me.Issues -- So much HP crapware. Oh well, I cleaned that up on day 1.- On the first day I noticed the touchpad has "give" on the front edge (towards the user) and it actually rises slightly above the surface, enough to scrape on skin. Anyway, I thought, lets ignore this and move on.- In a few weeks, I noticed a dead pixel on the screen. Now I can't help but notice it all the time. Perfect.- The fingerprint sensor works 50% of the time. Wiping finger and sensor doesn't help when it doesn't work.- [maybe not a laptop issue] I use a bluetooth mouse and sometimes the mouse pointer just goes crazy and wants to go to the lower right corner.If all these things worked l...

Ive had this laptop for a full month now and up until today 8-20-19 I was happy. Only major issue I had was with the mouse touchpad being too sensitive or not sensitive enough. Today I turned the laptop on, it stayed on for 5 minutes before going into sleep mode (at least that’s what I though). When I tried to restart it I realized it shutoff and I couldn’t turn it back on. The battery was fully charged and I tried various techniques to get it back up and running; none of which worked. After doing a google search it appears this is a normal malfunction of the laptop. HP support shows a case from 2017 with the same problem. I contacted Amazon and was forwarded to HP. The tech walk me through numerous steps to get it restarted and nothing worked. She later mentioned it was my internal battery and it’s probably dead. Now I’m waiting to received a box and shipping label to return the laptop back to HP for repair or replacement.

Pros:• USB-C, Finally! As a past Surface Pro user, this was never a feature. With a USB-C, like any computer, you can do so much more with this device now. From headphones to connecting external 4k monitors, to charging this and other devices (USB-C chargers are 10x cheaper to get), to even connecting an Ethernet adaptor. About time Microsoft.• It’s a very sold machine. I go no flex issues, the frame feels sturdy, and overall I felt that I can throw this in a bag and not worry.• It’s light. Not IPad light, but enough that you won’t feel worried that you’re not going to bend it.• The microphone set up on the Pro is a big upgrade. Skype calls from my parents came crisp and clear in an indoor, TV on, volume. The web video is what it is, but the microphone setup is a thumbs up.• Cortana listens to you pretty well. I’m learning Spanish so translating even simple questions, from English to Spanish, Cortana does a lot better than either using Alexa or Google Assistant. Also questions about directions, weather, and others were spot on.• Excellent display. The screen is bright, outstanding saturation/color balance, and also offers ambient light sensing when it gets dark. When you go to sett...

I skipped the 5th and 6th iterations of the Surface and waited for the 7, I was truly excited about the new 10nm i7 processor, ram, better wifi... Unfortunately, the truth is that the new Surface model is a big, expensive, outdated disappointment… Not only the screen is exactly the same as on the previous model, it still doesn’t support HDR, or HDR+, OR 4k quality apps. Really? For $1500, in 2019 Microsoft gives us the cutting edge tech from 2016. Thanks! Furthermore, the built-in SSD is dreadfully slow, the new LPDDR4x ram is no faster than LPDDR3 and the new usb-c port doesn’t charge the device, seriously, even the most powerful, fastest chargers I have dint charge it, including the one that came with the tablet. Oh, and since the DP port is no longer there a usb-c to HDMI adapter is a must in order to connect an external monitor, which is an additional expense. The only seemingly positive change was Intel’s new WiFi6 chipset but it’s not nearly enough to justify the price premium over the Surface 6, besides, it freezes a lot and drains the battery quickly. There are, however, a few issues that are even more significant:1) Horrible, unacceptable battery life! Even at low brightne...

I'm returning the surface pro 7 to amazon due to randomly freezing issue with my unit and ask for a refund. Done the troubleshooting with Microsoft tech support, unfortunately issue still occurs even after resetting the unit. A bit disappointed with my experience considering this is my first surface device and had to deal with this issue considering that I paid to 60 Dollars to ship this device from U.S to Qatar. Hope this doesn't happen to other customers.UPDATE:i gave the surface pro 7 a chance, i didnt return the unit to amazon, was hoping a software update will fix the issue. I still experience from time to time the random freezing of the touchpad, just want to clarify only touchpad freezes, keyboard is working and system is responding.I have 2 years warranty from microsoft website on the machine if on the 1st year freezing still occurs ill send it for repair

There are a few annoyances with this product those being lack of thunderbolt 3, limited screen real estate coupled with big bezels and the biggest gripe of all being poor battery life compared to the competition (Hp, Dell and Lenovo).Now if you use the Sp7 indoors with the brightness set to around 50% then you can get at least 7.5-8 hours of battery which is average but not great, but if you use this outdoors or in a brightly lit area then you're forced to up the brightness which will kill the battery in around 4.5-5 hours. I found myself reaching for the charger 2-3 times in the day.Other than that the product is great (so far). if you're a student or a person who frequently views pdfs and word documents then the form factor is perfect. The sp7 is also part of intel project Athena making it quick and easy to log in and get work started for the day.Overall it's a good product but if you're someone who's not going to benefit from using this as a tablet regularly, you're better off getting another laptop.I will update this review if I find any other issues.PS. if you're an artist or some kind of digital illustrator, get an iPad pro over this product. There are several reviews online...

The surface product line definitely is one of the best-looking laptop or tablet devices out there in the market. I got this great deal on Black Friday. However, the unit I received get overheated with 30 minutes of light usage. also, I notice an obvious line jitter when I using this device. kinda disappointed I had to return this device. Since its 1400 dollar devices.

Three weeks in with a trip in there and it has been perfect.I wasn't sure I would like the size because my last laptop was a 17" Toshiba and I really liked it but the size is not an issue at all and I truly appreciate the lighter weight of it.I got the hub and pointer and a disk drive and they all work perfectly and such a smart design.As a PS4 player I am almost tempted to get an XBox which would have been blasphemy a mere 4 weeks ago.***UPDATE***There is no power cord to plug into the wall so in order to purchase it, here is the link:https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07MTPPPVM/ref=ppx_od_dt_b_asin_title_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1How Microsoft gets away with nickel and diming us to death is beyond me.Hope this helps anyone getting the docking station, took me over a half hour to find it.

This is a great computing device for traveling. It’s slim enough to fit into virtually any bag. The keyboard cover, which came with it, is a delight to type on. I take tons of notes using Samsung Notes and Whiteboard, this gets the job done. Battery life is meh. I can get a day out of it with very light usage & when I keep the keyboard cover closed when not in use. Viewing outdoors is terrible in and out of direct sunlight. This is definitely an inside device. The speakers on it - meh, they sound a little worse than my 2017 iPad Pro.The cases that I’ve tried for it all make it so difficult to use the kickstand, that’s why I just slapped a skin on it (from Amazon of course).Aside from the poor battery life and horrible outdoor viewing, I do like this pc. It’s perfect for those who need to jump online real quick, complete a tad bit of work, and go.

I bought this as a secondary windows portable, primarily for use in routine tasks when I did not want to be tied to my desk. I use it like a laptop, so there may have been less expensive, more traditional options that would have done the job, but I have been curious about Windows tablets, so when this came up for sale with the cover included, I jumped on it. The utility of this machine, as with any computer, is going to depend on the tasks you want to perform with it. Since I mostly use it for document editing, I can't imagine using it in tablet mode would be a very good experience. The Type Cover is always attached.It actually doesn't work so well sitting on a lap. On my short-legged, overweight frame, the stand is not sufficient to keep the tablet from falling off. I have not used it in tablet mode, but i notice that it gets rather warm. Leaving the cover on and folding it to the back should provide enough insulation. Feeling the keys press as you hold it is a little disconcerting, but the system knows to ignore that when the keyboard is at the back.As with any compact keyboard, the Type Cover makes some compromises to save space. I would have happily given up some real estate on...

Within a few months of buying my computer starting having a screen flicking problems (On-Off-On-Off every 1/2 second). Sent back to Lenovo for repairs, but the repaired computer developed same problem within a month. Sent it back again to Lenovo but know that it will have this problem sometime again after the 1 year warranty expires. ITS A WELL KNOWN PROBLEM WITH THE ENTIRE LENOVO YOGA LINE. Read Internet blogs as I have. Best Buy Geek Squad people confirmed to me that they have heard LOTs of customers experiencing this problem. They haven't seen this problem or any other problem with Microsoft's computer line, so I bought the Microsoft laptop 2 for my college son and just bought the Microsoft Surface-Go for myself since Lenovo will have my laptop for at least 3 weeks for "repairs" and I have NO CONFIDENCE that the third laptop from them will actually work long-term in view of publicly available information. AVOID or assume the risk.

Do not buy unless you will use it plugged in. In 10 minutes setting up the laptop, it went from 100% battery life down to 85%. That is with a default screen brightness setting of 50%. With battery usage like that, it will get nowhere close to the "up to 10 hours". This is unacceptable and it is going back.Positives though, it seems to be well-built and feels nice in the hands. Wifi speed was somewhat slow too however, slower than my older laptop.

Overall I'm happy with my purchase. When on sale, as it often is, this is by far the best choice given the specs. I really wanted a tablet but the only thing close was the MS Surface which is way too much money for what it is. Not only does it fulfill my need as a tablet when folded but it makes an excellent laptop.On the downside, it is a little bit heavy given the fact that I'm handicapped. Another thing that would have been nice is the ability to upgrade the ram although you can upgrade the SSD. My tablet came with 8mg Ram and a 256 Gb SSD which I consider a minimum for any PC at this time but in the near future, I expect I'll be upgrading the SSD and it would be nice to be able to upgrade the Ram too. If you are a casual user I don't think you'll ever need more Ram or HD. Also on the downside is that when you fold it back to use as a tablet the camera is on the bottom which makes for an awkward angle when chatting.I am an amateur artist and photographer and I can't wait to try a stylus so I can't comment on how it works. with a pen. It would have been nice if Lenovo would have included one since it can be used as a tablet.

I'll be honest, I was a little skeptical of buying my laptop off Amazon but I have no regrets. It was way cheaper here than on other websites and I got in in 3 days during Thanksgiving week. I've only had to for 2 days now but so far the laptop is all I imagined it would be and it is working very well. It came in the Lenovo box and was definitely a brand new product. Would recommend buying this laptop

I really REALLY wanted all the reviews to be wrong about this computer.. Purchased it for school work and after 5 days of use the screen was flickering black every few minutes and sometimes would not come back on at all after it went out.Sent it back since it was (thankfully) still within 30 days of purchase...Very disappointing in Lenovo on allowing something with these issues to come to market. I am a big fan of the Thinkpad and x series mobile workstations, but this just too far short for Lenovo.

Nothing but problems and disappointments right out of the box for this system:- Camera not good enough to use with Windows Hello- Screen brightness doens't adjust, either by the keys or the Windows adjuster accessed from the system tray.- WiFi is utterly unusable: videos pause for 30 seconds at a time, every 30 seconds. Speed Test results abysmal. WiFi signal strength in the same room as the router is 1 bar. You can't even load a simple Google Doc (or even your list of docs) without drumming your fingers in impatience. I set down a cheap, 2-year-old $200 Chromebook next to it and it was night and day: Chromebook blew threw everything. I watched a 2-minute video (without pauses), started a new Google Doc, and then loaded an existing Google doc on the Chromebook while the browser on the Yoga was still trying to load Youtube's page.I've got to send this back, and there's no way I'm risking a replacement of this crap. Should have stuck with a renewed Microsoft Surface for the same price.Especially disappointing since it was an anniversary gift.

I like everything about this unit; battery life, display quality (although a bit reflective), keyboard, performance--everything works well. I sing at assisted living residences, using karaoke as my music background. As many as 4 locations a day, as often as 3-5 times weekly. A lot of setup and takedown, requires durability and great battery life for this most demanding of applications. I have no problem getting through 4 gigs daily on the unit's battery without having to plug it in. A worthy replacement for my 7 year old Lenovo laptop.

After a bad experience with a reburbished C630 I ordered this laptop.It has been extremely easy for me to get set up at home. I was worried I would not be able to transfer all of my pics/word documents etc. to my surprise there was a transfer manager within the computer. All I did was click on the prompts and bada-bada—bing all of my things were transferred to my new computer. It is so light weight and I love the touch screen. The battery life lasts for a very time and recharges fast too. I also love the backlight which I have never had before on previous laptops.

First msi laptop.It's got good graphic cards but screen resolution does not live up to its spec. HD video are not all that HD. It feels like an old lcd tv screen. I should have gotten high refresh rate equipped screen laptops or another brand. 7hr battery statement is misleading too. It will last 7 hrs if you don't do anything and leave the computer on without running any program. good marketing strategy. There's no point of returning this now since I'm not playing for that restocking fee. stick to dell if you can.

I purchased a desktop 2 years ago and didn't realize I'd be playing as many PC games as I currently am (have mostly been a console and mobile gamer in the past). I wanted an inexpensive, yet powerful rig that could handle the graphics load I needed it to. In addition, I didn't want anything too flashy, and something I could take into the office if required. The GF63 perfectly checks all my boxes. Having just purchased a desktop (and outfitted it with all the bells and whistles) just 2 years ago, I didn't want to spend a lot on a new machine. Once I settled on the GF63 I shopped around and Amazon had the best price for the configuration (i.e. most memory, SSD capacity size, etc.). I especially loved the stylish, yet tone downed aesthetic of the machine. Even with the keyboard LEDs off, the MSI dragon logo on the lid says there's something a little different that sets this laptop apart from your standard office machine.Speaking of the keyboard, a lot of reviews I read mentioned that is was mushy or too soft to type on. I've found nothing of the sort. The keys offer good feedback and have nice travel distance (though it maybe a little short for some), and I found the typing experience...

First off, this laptop looks and feels great and although I haven't had the chance to test many games yet it seems to do well. Since there's plenty of info on the Pros of this laptop (value for the money being a big one) I thought I'd mention a few Cons that really stick out to me.1) The very first thing I noticed was the power plug-in location. The hole to plug in the power cord is located on the left side of the laptop roughly in the middle. This is a weird location in general but on this laptop it makes even less sense because it means that if you run the cord behind your laptop (like most people) the cord will be directly in front of the fan that blows out the heat from the laptop. This was nearly a deal-breaker for me.2) This hasn't been an issue yet since I rarely use the laptop unplugged but the laptop boasts 7hrs of battery life unplugged. First off, this doesn't strike me as an impressive stat since my previous laptop was 12hrs. Second; this is only if you don't optimize your settings for gaming. One way the laptop tries to save power is by using the integrated Intel graphics whenever possible. If you tell it to always use the GTX 1060 (as most people will do for gaming) i...

I normally play on a potato laptop for gaming, this is my first actual gaming laptop. So you can imagine the pleasure of being able to game with quality fps and graphics. I am mostly running Diablo 3 with ultra settings right now and it is gorgeous. Rich color, smooth frame rate.The only cons so far is the brushed metal casing, which shows fingerprints badly if you barely touch it (that's just a nitpick though), and it gets pretty hot along the top area above the keyboard and to the left. Puts out massive heat too. I have the fan settings on auto, I might boost them higher in the dragon app that comes with the laptop.Overall it is a GREAT laptop for the price. Looks nice, feels great, runs wonderfully, has a great built in program for managing the graphics and the fans. This is the 3rd MSI laptop we've purchased for ourselves (we're using the other 2 as well) and we're pretty much sold on this brand.

Definitely a great laptop for the price I found it at. Will work great for our short gaming and streaming times. Noticed that the laptop gets decently hot to the touch while in use, so we had to get a laptop cooling system to go underneath. Luckily found a 6 fan MSI brand cooling stand for only 25usd and now things are moderate temperatures. Would Not Recommend for Long periods of gaming. Will definitely get too hot.

There is a certain degree of trust that Amazon has established with me over the years. I buy products through them with the understanding that not only will the products be of low cost, but will also arrive in a timely manner in working condition.I've never used the renewed product feature through amazon, but I trusted them and thought I'd give it a try on the MSI GF63 gaming laptop.The laptop arrived earlier than expected (even during quarantine Amazon managed to work delivery magic.) As I unboxed the product it looked like new. I downloaded steam, epic games, and minecraft to give them a try. Minecraft worked great, subnautica works but it's very touch and go. Then on to Fortnite, this is where i hit a snag.Fortnite ran fine on ultra settings, but the game itself was unplayable due constant connection issues. I thought perhaps it was just fortnite's servers as my primary desktop worked fine, and my housemates laptop was doing fine. A day later I boot up minecraft to play with my much younger cousin on one of the online servers. And I find myself rubber banding around. This time I'm at his house, and I ask my sister if she's had any network issues. (After running a speed test and...

My son wanted a gaming laptop after growing out of his hand me down Apple Air. He wanted a laptop that he can do his school work and game on and after reading reviews and talking to friends, he decided this laptop would fit his price point.Well after having this for five months or so, either we got a lemon or MSI does not build good laptop.The positive is that the price point for the specification that would be suitable for general gaming. We like how the laptop looks and feel, though it does feel a bit "cheap".He's had problem with the speakers working and not working (he has to Zoom for school), the laptop crashes often, browsers will suddenly crash (window issue?), battery issues, video suddenly not working.All these add up to an unsatisfactory experience with this MSI laptop. He regrets spending his money purchasing this laptop.

I had a problem but I fixed it. When the charger was plugged, the MS was going to the moon. 3k MS, impossible to play. If you disconnect the charger the ms back to normal. I experienced this in League of Legends, and I saw a couple of people with the same problem in Reddit and other forum's. You need to go to device manager and update the wi fi driver, also do the following:On Windows, go to "Device Manager>Network adapters>Intel(R) Wireless AC 9560>Properties>Advanced" (or any other wireless adapter that you have)-Set both "Channel Width for 2.4GHz" and "Channel Width for 5GHz" from "Auto" to "20 MHz Only"Worked for me.

Purchased this laptop as a downgrade to my Alienware 13r3. I'm done gaming on the PC and wanted something lightweight with good battery life and this Acer checked all of the boxes for me. Couple of things for those of you who want to buy this laptop and possibly do some upgrades or have some specific questions that don't seem to be answered properly.SSD Upgrade: The standard M.2 SSD that was included with mine was the 256gb variant that I think was the SK Hynix brand. I remember reading reviews that the drive was of the cheaper variants that don't take full advantage of NVME speeds. I swapped out that drive with my personal Samsung 960 EVO 1tb drive which was pretty simple. There are only 11 screws on bottom of case to take out. There are no screws underneath the rubber feet. If you can't get a plastic or metal shim between the bottom plate and laptop frame you can pry it back at the side close the screen hinge. The swap was simple but one other thing I noted that caused me an issue. I went with a fresh windows 10 install via USB instead of using Samsung magician to mirror the drives. Because of this I had Windows authentication errors and had to purchase a Windows 10 Home license....

This review is for Acer Swift 5 the i5/256GB version.After using it for about three weeks, and with some workarounds, I’m very satisfied overall. If you are looking for an economical 14” laptop with the least weight to carry around, I think Acer has produced a winner in terms of stylish looks, features, and affordable price.If the weight is the main factor for you, you will not find a lighter 14” laptop (not even a 13” for that matter). When you pick Swift 5 up for the first time, you would think it’s a plastic display dummy – until you realize you are holding an actual functioning machine. There is only one other offering I’ve looked at, the LG Gram series that has the same feather weight. You could get a non-touch screen version of LG at Amazon in the same price range, but if you insist on a touchscreen, you’ll have to go for the higher LG model with i7/512GB, which will cost you $500 more than Swift 5 - ouch, if you don’t care about the processor or extra disk space.Regarding the touchscreen, the Swift 5 had a pleasant surprise for me. The lid flips all the way flat at 180 degrees, making it much easier to use in tablet mode, or to lay flat on the desk for drawing with a stylus...

The first one I sent back bc the fan noise was too loud. The 2nd one arrived but right out of the box had a very strange problem where the curser acts on its own, opening windows and clicking on things all by itself, I'm unable to stop it nor overpower it with the touch pad, or a mouse. Took it to Acer company HQ to repair and they returned it claiming the issue was fixed but it's not. I'm extremely disappointed because this issue makes the computer unusable. It is also creepy that it just totally acts on its own opening whatever windows that it wants.Update:Took the computer to Acer a second time, first time they replaced touchpad. which did not fix issue and seemed to make it worse. Second time replaced touchscreen. Now also operating worse than ever. The computer just completely freezes right after turning on. I can't control it with the touchpad or touchscreen. I wish one of these two companies would step up and either replace it with one that properly works or Amazon refund my money for this lemon!II haven't been able to use this computer since I purchased it in December it is now April.

Initially I was really happy with this laptop, model SF514-52T-50AQ, which I got for $700, a steal. You get good standard specs for late 2018 and early 2019 laptops (8th generation i5, 8GB RAM, 256 GB SSD) with a 14 inch touchscreen, and all under 1 kg (under 2.2 lb). It is the lightest 14-inch laptop in the world. Not even the acclaimed LG Gram is so light. Acer archives this, not by cutting on motherboard or components, but by using a very light shell or housing and by having no glass in front of the touchscreen. Unfortunately, these are also this laptop's Achilles' Heel.My Swift 5 was not fully flat, sitting on only three of its rubber feet. After some use, and with no action on my part, it bent and it started to sit on all four feet. This bend-ability can't be good for its components. Also, the laptop crashed every few hours. Event Viewer showed some hardware errors before each crash. Windows repair with SFC and DISM didn't find any issues. Resetting and reinstalling everything didn't change the situation. One dead pixel further pushed me to part ways. So, I did I final reset and returned it. I have not looked back. I am now using an Acer Swift 3 15.6" which is 75% heavier but...

So I wanted to desperately keep this laptop but there are 2 huge deal breakers that some reviews failed to mention online. 1 is the touchpad which feels very half baked for a $1000 laptop. It allows for 1 click dragging but ONLY for half of the touch pad. If you drag it up the 2nd half of the touchpad it releases and leaves you completely frustrated, but I could live with this.2nd is the keyboard backlight which really annoyed me. There are literally no timeout options to configure for it aside from the brightness levels. It's mandatory that it shuts off if you don't press a key on there for 30 seconds and not configurable. It doesn't even come on when you touch the touchpad which means you HAVE to press some key for it to activate it. This means if you're using this at night and you're just browsing around with the touchpad for a bit, you can't see to type on the keyboard at all. No way to change it in BIOS at all unlike other laptop manufacturers such as apple or dell. These 2 things are what's causing me to return what otherwise would've been a top tier laptop. It seems like Acer did this on purpose from what I read online and decided not to give us a choice for it

Bottom line up front: I am delighted with my new Acer Laptop computer. Love this computer. Arrived on time and in perfect condition. (Source was SpaceBound through Amazon.) Easy to set up. I really like the Acer software that comes with the machine - makes it so easy to use. This computer is really fast and it does not lock up on me when I have several applications and web sites open at the same time. The touch ID pad is so useful. Screen display is bright and I like the 14" size - just right for me. Computer is so light and slim yet it does not feel flimsy. I compared many different models and read so many reviews. I chose this one which had the 16gb ram and the 512gb SSD. My experience with mechanical hard drives has led me to always seek the SSD instead. My search narrowed to focus on Acer and on this Acer model in comparison with another Acer model which appeared to have identical specs except for type of battery and Windows 10 Pro version (instead of Windows 10 Home version in the other model). The price for this was over $120 less - so I ordered this one. I am not disappointed. My old Acer computer was purchased in 2013 and still runs great - I am very pleased with Acer quali...

Purchased as Open Box purchase with a condition of Like-New. Out of the box the computer seemed fine. Once we started to install software, it quickly became apparent that the notebook had keyboard and/or motherboard issues in that is responded erratically to keyboard and mouse instructions. Would strongly recommend not buying this product (or others) from StahrrEletronics.

I've only had this computer five months. Already the sound card is not working. Tech support is useless. Will never buy an Acer again. It's a piece of crap!!

Laptop form, weight, and specs are great. Nice display. Mine had the space bar issue where it wouldn't register keystrokes if hit on the left side or the right side. It needed to be hit towards the middle. After a few days of trying to adjust where my thumb hit, it was enough for me to send the device back. Couple of other annoyances, the speakers vibrate above 70% and the fan occasionally would make a strange electrical noise. I really liked the laptop but just couldn't live with the space bar not registering keystrokes consistently.

I was first skeptical about this device after reading a few reviews about this ultrabook. A lot of people were complaining about the space bar not recognizing keystrokes, but I have had no such problem.This ultrabook is very light and small so it makes a very convenient device for traveling. The Core i7 is a powerful processor but this is still a thin laptop so I don't recommend making the laptop do any heavy lifting unless you want the fans to sound like a mini jet engine. The touch screen is nothing fancy and requires you to press a bit harder on it than most other touch screens, and it's sometimes hard to see on the screen when you're outside and the sun is out.It took some time for me to get used to the keyboard since I hadn't used a laptop this small before. But after using it for about a week I enjoyed typing on it.The speakers on this ultrabook are better than the ones on any of my previous laptops but I've only had 3 laptops including this one so I don't know exactly what good laptop speakers are.The biggest downside to this device to me is that the USB ports are on the right side of the ultrabook. If you connect a mouse with a wire to the laptop, you have a higher chance o...

it got shipped a day early, I've always wanted a MacBook Air and this is the way to go when ordering it, like I'm about to start college soon and I thought I would just share!!!!!

I ordered my MacBook Air from Apple within an hour of its announcement and have been enjoying it for a few days. I'm upgrading from a 2018 retina MacBook Air, and the 2020 model is a very worthwhile upgrade for a few reasons.First, the new keyboard really lives up to the hype. I didn't hate the butterfly keyboard, but I didn't like typing on it nearly as much as the scissor-mechanism keyboards of the older MacBook Airs and pre-2016 MacBook pros. Plus, I've had two machines with the butterfly keyboard (the other was the 2016 MB Pro with Touch Bar, that my employer provided me to use at work). Both had problems with repeating keys, and in the case of Pro I use at work, some key presses randomly triggered some of the Touch Bar functions.The keyboard on my new MacBook Air is, to me, much more comfortable to type on, and that's important - my job requires me to do a ton of writing - especially now that I'm working remotely from home. (I teach at a small college in Wisconsin, and like all colleges except Liberty University we are now teaching online only.)The 2018 MB Air felt a bit underpowered to me, and you could not custom-order it with a better processor. (Ditto for the 2019 Air). So...

I am a first time Apple user. I got an iPhone recently and then I got my Macbook. I always wanted one of the two (but mostly the MacBook because of college). I LOVE IT. The screen is amazingly clear and the keyboard is soooo smooth. I had an HP before and remembered that the keyboard was way too hard. I love how fast the processor is and how organized everything is. I also love the fact that everything is synced with my other devices. It arrived in IMPECCABLE condition. The ONLY problem I had was with UPS. They NEVER find my house in Puerto Rico (and I live near the city). Their delivery service is getting REALLY BAD. Fix this! Other than that, a very good laptop!

To start off, the MacBook booted up quickly and the set up was easy. The camera sucks but that isn’t what I need the MacBook for, I needed it for online college courses and it seems like it will hold up well for that. Very light weight laptop which is amazing. The battery life seems to be good. I received the MacBook yesterday and so far so good. I will try to give an update after a month or so again. I would recommend this computer to others!!

Excellent and fast laptop if you only use it for basic tasks like email reading, essay writing, college works, streaming, etc. The camera is grainy but that's not a big issue.Only negative point is that the laptop overheats after 1-2 hours.You should get it if you want an apple laptop and don't need too much power.

Just what I needed for college, love the build quality, speakers, typing and everything(minus the god awful camera but it’s not a big deal). Also, do yourself a favor and buy the 512GB version that has a i5 quad core, that’ll help future proof your Mac.

Perfect computer for my daughter entering college. This is exactly what she wanted and loves it. It does everything she wants it and needs it to do!

This is perfect for college students, office jobs, every day use & so many things. Lightweight, beautiful screen quality & the keyboard is super comfortable to use. The rose gold has such an elegant pretty finish to it. I love this MacBook! Buy it.

I used it for filling online application forms and typing personal statements for college applications. It's everything I expected and more. Will update this review in a few months' time with detailed pros and cons (hopefully only pros inshaAllah)

In my opinion, the 2020 MacBook Air is a perfect laptop. It has physical keys that are a pleasure to type on, a beautiful screen, an optimal size, good pricing, and a quad-core processor. The only "touch" button is the fingerprint sensor and the touch pad. The onboard graphics are as good as discrete graphics from a few years ago according to benchmarks, which is impressive. The speakers work well. Being an educator, I purchased it on the Apple Education Store for $1200, and it couldn't have come at a better time, given the transition to Zoom in the coronavirus pandemic. Thank you, Apple, for rediscovering yourself. I had been holding onto my 2012 MacBook Pro because I was unimpressed with the offerings the past few years.You shouldn't get this if you are looking for onboard power, but if you are, you probably didn't need me to tell you that. Otherwise, get it. It's great.Update: After reviewing benchmarks and reviews, I believe the upgrades you should consider, in order of priority are:1. i3 -> i52. 8gb -> 16gbThe i5 -> i7 is a small boost in power per Geekbench scores, but again, this isn't supposed to be used for heavy computing due to cooling limitations, so this is a novelty i...

It has been widely reported that the camera on the 2020 MacBook Air is low quality, but mine was definitely in the non-acceptable range. Picture was very grainy, unfocused, and low light level. I strongly suspect the glass in front of the video chip was damaged, perhaps for a contamination during assembly, but have now way of checking directly. Cleaning the outside had no effect.With heavy heart, I decided to return the unit, and buy an equivalent from the big-box store, where quality can (and will) be checked before purchasing.Update: refund for the item still pending, 14 working days after the returned item was delivered to Amazon. Worse than expected and worse than advertised (14 calendar days)

The original MacBook Air is retailing for like $749.99 right now. Don't buy that. It looks ugly and it's old. Buy the new refreshed 2020 model. This model is authentic, straight from Apple, and it looks fresh.One downside: Open it in a garage or something. I opened it in my room and my room smells like aluminum. Overall, this is a really good product for day-to-day use.

What an upgrade over the 2017 Macbook air! Retina, magic keyboard, speakers, smaller form factor, finger print something-or-other, etc. When you hold it in your hand(s) it feel like a solid pice of aluminum. Totally pimptastic to the max. Getcha some!

For the average or small business person this computer will do more than enough and is a vast improvement over previous models. Catalina OS though sucks, otherwise would have given it a 5 rating. Problem is a lot of software I need for work is limited or won't work with Catalina. Yeah, you can take a chance and transition back to High Sierra or whatever but that's not a task I would want to handle myself personally and in checking with several computer guys in the area its not worth the cost, puts the price right back up to where the MacBook Airs were priced before. Keyboard is heaven, processor is fast enough for the most part, other than Catalina its great. Apple, get your act together, Catalina is not what most people want or need in my opinion.

my first and only macbook pro was purchased in 05/06. needless to say i was due for an upgrade. i was never a fan of the macbook air so i started researching the macbook pro. i quickly learned that most people i knew who had pro’s switched to the air when it came time to buy a new laptop. they all swear by it. amazon didnt have any of the new pro’s in stock which is what finally pushed me over to the air. some reviews were iffy especially about the camera quality so i was very nervous. my laptop was delivered yesterday and i could not be happier that i chose the new macbook air! its perfect! while it does not come with the touch bar it does bring touch ID. many of the forums i read said the touch bar is great but you can live without it and after time it starts to fail. not sure how true that it as im sure itll improve over time.the air is so light weight. i got the 13inch and it doesn't feel crammed or too small like most air laptop do in previous models. the retina display is beautiful!the new air only has 3 ports for reference. see photos. you will need a USB adapter so that you can connect things like your harddrive or charge your mouse. i purchased the apple usb-c to usb adapt...

Amazon does not check this product for manufacturing defects. When my computer arrived the screen has bubbles in it and they are very large ones. For the price of this computer it should be defect free! When I tried to contact Amazon Customer service I get this "Currently Unavailable." I am stuck with this expensive computer and it's defects. I cannot return it because I need it for my business. I wanted Amazon to replace it but That option is "Currently Unavailable" too. The camera on this computer is grainy and low quality. I'm not sure if that is a defect too or if that is just the quality of the camera. If you buy this item through Apple they will make sure the product is free from defects although it will cost a bit more. You have to decide that for yourself. I am very disappointed with this product and Amazon for not giving me the support I needed with this product.
